This is a simply stunning conversion of a period building, formerly the Boot & Shoe Inn, now transformed into a beautiful well proportioned village home, reconfigured and extended to provide 2400 sq ft of internal accommodation combining both the features expected of a traditional property with the benefits and efficiency of a more contemporary home.

The property offers a wealth of character and features with attractive brick elevations and double glazed sash windows to many of the rooms, upgraded gas fired central heating and tasteful decoration. This has been combined with more contemporary elements such as oak doors, modern bathrooms and a simply stunning open plan living/dining kitchen which is flooded with light from windows to three elevations including bi-fold doors out onto the rear terrace. The kitchen is beautifully appointed having granite work surfaces and integrated appliances, polished tiled floor and the feature of a double sided solid fuel stove, on the sitting room side having a feature herringbone brick chimney breast. There is a separate sitting room and additional study, as well as a well proportioned utility with cloakroom off. From the sitting room a bespoke oak staircase rises to the galleried landing where there are four well proportioned double bedrooms, the master benefitting from ensuite facilities, there is also a stunning family bathroom.

The property occupies a pleasant plot tucked away close to the heart of this highly regarded and pretty Vale of Belvoir village, affording far reaching views to the front and positioned at the entrance to a small cul de sac setting shared with only three other bespoke dwellings. Electric gated access leads onto a private block set driveway with double garage and enclosed landscaped garden.

The property is offered to the market with no upward chain and viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate both its location and accommodation on offer, which we suspect in the main will appeal to young families looking for a well proportioned character home in a much requested village.
