Looking to find a new family home, or just being nosey?
Then look no further than our Property of the Week feature.
This week, Newton Fallowell are showcasing a stunning cottage in the heart of Empingham, on the market for £500,000 with no onward chain.
Set within the popular village of Empingham, only a short walk from Rutland Water, this eye-catching semi-detached cottage is presented in a ready-to-move-in condition with a host of original features.
The property boasts an open plan kitchen and dining area, L-shaped living room, two/three bedrooms and a four-piece modern bathroom.
Properties like this rarely come to the market and the Newton Fallowell team would strongly recommend an internal viewing at the earliest opportunity.
Prospective buyers who approach the property from the front will immediately be welcomed by the unique stonework and the inviting original front door.
Upon entering the property you have a spacious living area with oak flooring and a feature fireplace housing a log-burning stove. Open stairs lead to the first-floor landing.
The light and airy kitchen diner is a great entertaining space with a range of fitted wall and base units under the vaulted ceiling with exposed beams. From the kitchen, you have a useful utility room with access out to the side and rear garden.
The four-piece modern bathroom completes the ground floor.
From the first floor landing, you find three bedrooms, currently shown as two double bedrooms and a walk-in dressing room, but could easily be turned back to a third bedroom if required. A separate WC completes the first floor.
The property sits on a lovely plot with the front aspect facing east and the rear-facing west, allowing for high degrees of natural light and sunshine throughout the day.
The gated gravel driveway provides off-road parking for two vehicles and leads to the mature front garden. The rear garden enjoys a west-facing aspect and has a spacious lawn area with planted borders and a separate unconverted outbuilding offering great storage and future potential, subject to planning permission.
Empingham is a charming village with a coronership, medical practice, and pub. It is within driving distance of Rutland's County Town, Oakham, and a stone's throw from Rutland Water, where you can walk, sail, jump in at the Aqua Park or simply enjoy the scenery.
