Set within the heart of Cottesmore is this rather unique former Smithy positioned within a generous south facing plot with wrap around easy to maintain gardens and extensive accommodation arranged over two floors including three / four double bedrooms, a modern fully integrated breakfast kitchen, two reception rooms, three bath / shower rooms and downstairs cloakroom. Having been lovingly restored over the last 15 years, the property boasts an array of character features with modern touches including replacement Upvc windows, newly tiled roof, converted attic room and installation of solar hot water & solar photovoltaic panels with qualifying FIT payments. Positioned within a generous plot, the property boasts a gated gravel driveway leading to a detached stone built open fronted barn, with storage shed. The mature south/east facing easy to maintain gardens have been lovingly maintained by the current owner and also have a self contained office / home gym. Cottesmore is ideally located within easy access to Oakham and the A1 and offers a range of local amenities including a village shop & post office, highly regarded chip shop, public house, local garage and primary school.
As you enter the property from the newly installed Upvc front door, the useful porch provides a good space to hang coats and leads into the dining hall. A real central part to the house, the dining hall leads off to the useful utility room with water softener, ground floor master bedroom with a vast expanse of integral wardrobes and a modern five piece en-suite bathroom, with under floor heating. The inner hallway has stairs leading to the first floor landing, access to the downstairs WC and into the fully fitted modern breakfast kitchen with a range of NEFF appliances and excellent views over the rear garden. The ground floor is then completed by a dual aspect living room with an eye catching fireplace and wood burning stove. Patio doors lead out into the rear garden. Stairs lead you to the first floor landing where you have a modern shower room, two double bedrooms both with integrated wardrobes and ample storage. The landing leads you past storage cupboards into the fully converted attic space with dormer windows and lends itself to a variety of uses to meet most family needs and then leads through to the modern three piece bathroom.
Properties of this calibre rarely come to the market and can only be truly appreciated by an internal viewing.
