Looking to find a new family home, or just being nosey?

Then look no further than our Property of the Week feature.

Pelham James has brought to the market a striking home dating back to the 1890s in Belton in Rutland for £425,000.

The House?

Nestled within a conservation area, yet surprisingly unlisted, enjoy all the perks of quaint character living, with the freedom to add your own mark on The Old Stables.

Stone tiles extend underfoot and a modern palette of fresh white and deep blue adorns the walls of the entrance hallway, adding depth to the space. Stash coats and shoes in the coat cupboard before emerging into the light, bright, open-plan kitchen.

Furnished with a range of sleek, contemporary cupboards and drawers, the kitchen balances style and practicality with ease. Integrated appliances include a Neff double oven and microwave, whilst the large central island breakfast bar offers deep drawer storage, and accommodates an induction hob, inset sink and plumbing for a dishwasher beneath the walnut worktops. To the far end of the kitchen, a modern log burning stove infuses the snug seating area with warmth, whilst on sunny days, bifolding doors invite you to take dinner al fresco on the courtyard terrace. Extending beyond the snug is a large dining space with views out over the front.

A door from the kitchen connects you with what was once the old stables after which the home is named. Currently used for storage, consider the potential to create a further reception room on this floor.

Leading off from the kitchen there is a laundry area and a handy shower room. A reception room completes the first floor accommodation.

The first bedroom is currently used as a sitting room, warmed by a log burner.

To the front of the home on the first floor are two further bedrooms, one currently used as a home office and with sweet Juliet balcony. Both rooms enjoy leafy views across the lane to the front.

Across the landing lies the principal bedroom, a spacious room, filled with light and dressed in attractive feature wallpaper and soft shades. With fitted wardrobes and ample space for a double bed, light flows in through a large window to the rear. Relax and unwind in the part panelled bathroom, with luxurious, freestanding slipper bath.

The garden?

Outside, a south-facing, walled cottage garden with quaint brick pathways and flowerbeds that are waiting to burst into seasonal colour, offers the opportunity to wine and dine al fresco.

Belton in Rutland is a popular Rutland village which offers a range of local amenities to include a village shop and public house. Situated within easy reach of the the A1 and good access to Peterborough and London via mainline trains, this is a great location for those who enjoy rural scenes and lively surroundings.
