We have pleasure in offering to the market this wonderful period home which offers a deceptive level of accommodation, likely to date back to the 1800s with sympathetic later additions to create a fascinating and versatile home situated within this much sought after and highly regarded Vale of Belvoir village.

Little Orchard occupies a stunning plot which approaches 1.4 acres with established westerly facing formal garden including a sheltered terrace which links back into the main accommodation creating a wonderful outdoor space. The formal gardens extend to approximately 0.4 of an acre and provide generous off road parking and double garage, leading down into a 1.0 acre grass paddock making this an excellent equestrian opportunity.

Internally this beautiful home has been tastefully refurbished, retaining much of its original character with many rooms having heavily beamed ceilings, period doors and solid fuel stoves to both the main receptions. The property offers a lovely homely atmosphere which is flooded with light with many of the rooms benefiting from a dual aspect.

The layout is particularly versatile and offers up to four reception areas with a beautiful character filled sitting room, well proportioned dining room which links through into a spacious L shaped living kitchen, sympathetically refitted to complement this style of home with hand painted units and granite and oak work surfaces plus integrated appliances. This area will undoubtedly become the hub of the home benefiting from superb views of the private rear garden.

As part of the ground floor accommodation there is a potential annex area with a large reception/double bedroom benefiting from ensuite facilities and adjacent office which could be combined to create ancillary accommodation for teenagers or extended families.

To the first floor there are four bedrooms, two of which benefit from ensuite facilities with the master being a particularly impressive space having aspect to three elevations as well as access out onto a balcony affording wonderful views down the garden. In addition there is a spacious contemporary ensuite bath/shower room with separate family bathroom.

Overall Little Orchard is a stunning individual home, located within this much requested village in one of its most sought after addresses. Viewing is the only way to truly appreciate both the location and accommodation on offer.

The village of Orston has a highly regarded primary school and pub and is located just off the A52 between the market town of Bingham and the village of Bottesford where there are further amenities including secondary schooling, shops and restaurants, doctors and dentists. The village is convenient for the A52 and A46 providing good access to the cities of Nottingham and Leicester. There is a railway station just outside the village linking to Grantham and Nottingham and from Grantham there is a high speed train to King's Cross in just over an hour.
