About this property

    Springwell House Empingham is an immaculate, well presented, spacious modern family home which has been extended to create wonderful living space throughout. It is centrally located in the village of Empingham, lying between the market towns of Oakham and Stamford. It has a delightful private garden, a single garage and ample driveway parking for several cars with space to keep a caravan, motor home or boat. There are good transport links to Peterborough for London trains. It is well situated for local primary and secondary schools.

    Springwell House is a large four bedroom detached property. The property has recently been reconfigured, extended and modernised, resulting in a fabulous family home with an impressive and spacious ground floor layout, designed for entertaining. Double and triple glazed windows and bi-folding doors connect the interior with the beautiful gardens. The elegant bedrooms upstairs are served by modern bath and shower room suites.

    Photovoltaic solar panels (with the benefit of their feed-in tariff) all help ensure this is a highly efficient home to run, as demonstrated by its EPC rating. The property is little more than a mile's walk along footpaths to Rutland Water and its Beach Car Park and has attractive views over its garden to the parish church and over rooftops opposite to Rutland Water's headwall.

    On entering the property, the entrance hall leads to a light sitting room with wood burning stove and original parquet flooring. There are double glazed windows to the front and patio doors to the rear, offering lovely views into the garden. The dining area and extended kitchen offer flexible entertaining space for friends and family. The Corian worktops and integrated appliances are shown to their best by triple glazed high specification bifold doors, French doors and a skylight above the breakfast bar. An extensive terrace adjoins the house with access to the kitchen, dining area and sitting room.

    Leading out of the kitchen is a study/playroom with fitted bookcase with potential to be made into a further bedroom if required. There is also a large utility room with ample storage, a ground floor cloakroom and a useful under stairs larder.

    A light stairwell leads to the first floor, with a feature glass balustrade landing. The principal bedroom occupies the full width of the house with a high vaulted ceiling, fitted wardrobes, Juliet balcony overlooking the garden and a new en suite shower room with high specification tiles and fixtures and fittings. Bedroom two is a generous double bedroom with a modern en suite shower room and rooftop views to the rising ground of Rutland Water's headwall, double bedroom three has floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes and shares the modern family bathroom with bedroom four.

    Adjacent to the house is a detached stone workshop, with heating and lighting with potential to become a home office or studio.

    The kitchen overlooks an attractive enclosed garden with a two level patio. The garden lies to the rear of the house and is lawned with mixed fruit species trees, including apple and pear, a kitchen garden and extensive flowering borders.

    Steps lead up from the rear of the property to the Breeze House garden room, with heating and lighting. This makes a delightful setting in which to entertain friends and family and seats up to 12 people.
