The Sawmill is a truly stunning detached period former farmhouse which has recently undergone a sympathetic program of tasteful refurbishment and restoration to create a beautiful family orientated home on the edge of this pretty Vale of Belvoir village.
This charming village residence offers considerable character with its pretty double fronted facade which hides a wealth of accommodation having been thoughtfully reconfigured and extended by way of a superb oak framed garden room to the rear, retaining much of its original features with high ceilings, deep skirting, original doors and period fireplaces, offering a light and airy atmosphere with neutral decoration throughout. The homely accommodation in total approaches 2500 sq ft over three floors.
The accommodation comprises two main reception rooms leading off a generous central hallway which links through into the heart of the home which is a quite superb open plan living/dining kitchen, flooded with light from glazed gable end and windows to three elevations. Having an initial bespoke farmhouse style kitchen which leads through into the open plan garden room with French doors leading out into the garden. In addition to the ground floor there is a useful cloakroom leading off a large plant room which offers the modern elements of pressurised hot water system as well as underfloor heating to the ground floor.
To the first floor there are three spacious double bedrooms including a superb master suite with Juliet balcony looking across the garden and neighbouring paddocks with far reaching views beyond. The main bedroom also offers a contemporary ensuite bathroom. There is a beautifully appointed family bathroom with traditional style suite. Situated in the eaves are two further double bedrooms and contemporary bathroom.
The plot extends to approximately third of an acre, mainly laid to lawn but with a substantial gated and graveled driveway, providing ample off road parking, with timber framed traditional style open fronted store, with high pitched roof. The gardens lie to all sides with a pretty cottage style garden to the front and westerly walled garden at the rear. The combined garden area together with the grassed / amenity area to the southerly aspect offers a generous outdoor space.
Overall the only way to truly appreciate both the wonderful location and stunning accommodation is by internal inspection.
