Buyers will enter the property into a formal entrance hall complete with Minton tile floor and giving access to the ground floor accommodation. The sitting room is located at the front of the property looking over the front garden through an original bay window with sash windows, a period feature fireplace, high ceilings with picture rails and wooden flooring.

To the middle of the property sits the newly fitted kitchen dining area to a bespoke interior design, incorporating built-in banquette seating with storage within, new ceiling and feature lighting, window blinds and Amtico flooring throughout.

To the back of the dining room there is access to a newly fitted WC and a re-modelled Utility room, incorporating new built in cupboards and space for washing machine and tumble dryer.

Stairs rising from the entrance hall rise to the first-floor landing which gives access to the bedroom and bathroom accommodation. To the rear of the property overlooking the garden is a double bedroom with an operational sash window and a useful wash hand basin. To the middle of the property, sitting over the kitchen is another generous sized double bedroom with sash window, a period Victorian fireplace and ample built in storage and wardrobe space.

To the front of the property is a further double bedroom with windows out to the front, again complemented by a period Victorian fireplace.

The fourth bedroom, which is a single and currently being used as a study also sits to the front. The first-floor accommodation is completed by the family bathroom. A further door from the first-floor landing leads to a stair case taking you up to the loft space. The loft has been almost completely boarded and has two large Velux roof windows allowing plenty of light.

The garden?

To the front there is a newly landscaped garden flanked either side by mature hedges and box hedging below the bay window, largely laid to gravel providing parking for up to two vehicles, fronted with a wrought iron fencing and gate to a porcelain laid path leading to the main entrance.

There is also an additional secure side entrance door leading to the rear of the property.  To the rear there is a generously sized landscaped garden and summer house, proving flexible office or relaxation space.

The area?

Ashwell Road is in walking distance of Oakham town centre, with a corner shop, fish and chip shop and nationally acclaimed private school all within 5 minutes. In the heart of Oakham there is a historic market square, bus station, train station, and popular weekly market. Despite the proximity of these amenities, traffic calming measures on Ashwell Road maintain the rural feel of this property.
