A rare opportunity to acquire a relatively affordable period home on the outskirts of this highly regarded and much sought after edge of Vale village.

St Paul's Cottage is a fascinating traditional semi detached cottage, originally constructed in 1906 but at a later point extended to create a versatile level of accommodation approaching 1100 sq ft. The property offers a great deal of charm with a pretty double fronted facade with pleasant outlook to the front across neighbouring fields.

The accommodation although likely to require a programme of general refurbishment, does benefit from upgraded UPVC double glazing and Worcester Bosch central heating boiler and would be a fantastic purchase for professional couples, young families or even those downsizing from larger dwellings looking for a quaint home on a more manageable plot and which allows them to place their own mark on a home.

Comprising an initial entrance hall, dining room, separate sitting room, kitchen with large walk-in pantry and ground floor cloakroom, rear entrance porch and useful utility. to the first floor there are three bedrooms, all large enough to accommodate double beds, and bathroom.

The property is set back from the lane behind an attractive railing frontage with access to the side leading onto a driveway and attached garage, plus relatively low maintenance enclosed garden at the rear.

The property is offered to the market with no upward chain and is expected to attract a good level of interest bearing in mind the appreciation of this pretty and well placed village.

The village of Colston Bassett lies on the edge of the Vale of Belvoir and has amenities including public house/restaurant, village hall and independent preparatory school. Further amenities can be found in the adjacent village of Cropwell Bishop and nearby market towns of Bingham and Melton Mowbray and the village is convenient for commuting via the A46 with links to the A52, A1 and M1.
