We have pleasure in offering to the market this attractive double fronted character cottage, tucked away in a secluded backwater on a delightful established plot within this highly regarded Vale of Belvoir village.
This charming home has over recent years seen a sympathetic programme of renovation and modernisation, retaining much of its original character and features including heavily beamed ceilings, live fireplaces, majority of original windows and reclaimed stripped pine internal doors. In addition there is a handcrafted farmhouse style kitchen with integrated modern appliances complemented by a gas fired Aga.
There are three reception rooms, two separate entrance halls, one of which accommodates a useful study area, with the third reception located in a single storey element of the property which, in conjunction with an adjacent utility and shower room, could potentially be utilised as a fourth double bedroom, ideal as an annexe for guests or dependent relative.
To the first floor there are three double bedrooms and modernised bathroom, in addition the property has benefitted from upgraded gas central heating boiler.
The property occupies a deceptive plot tucked away in the corner of the lane with off road parking to the front and attached brick garage. To the rear is a delightful mature garden offering an excellent degree of privacy with established boundaries, lawn, summerhouse, timber sheds and log store.
Overall viewing is the only way to truly appreciate both the location and accommodation on offer.
The village of Granby lies in the Vale of Belvoir and there are well regarded primary schools in the nearby villages of Orston and Langar. Further amenities are available in the nearby market town of Bingham including secondary schooling, a range of shops, doctors, dentists and a leisure centre. Granby is connected to high speed broadband, is convenient for the A52 and the A46, the A1 and M1 and from the nearby town of Grantham there is a high speed train to Kings Cross station, London in just over an hour.
