About this property
Set within the popular village of Empingham, only a short distance from Rutland Water sits this immaculate six-bedroom detached home. The property is believed to date back to the late 1700s yet has been thoughtfully extended and improved over the years to create a beautifully presented home with generously proportioned rooms and a tasteful contemporary décor scheme. The property benefits from a range of modern conveniences such as underfloor heating, generous open plan living space and a sleek fully fitted kitchen complete with a vast central island and a range of premium appliances, creating a well-appointed home that feels contemporary while benefiting from a wealth of character. There is also a self-contained annexe with a double bedroom, sitting room with kitchen and bathroom, which has great potential for multi-generational living or use as a holiday rental.
The accommodation is entered via a wide and welcoming entrance hall, which leads through to a well-sized sitting room, TV room, office, and the exceptional custom-made Cesar kitchen with adjoining utility room which enjoys an open plan design and serves as the heart of the family home complete with skylight, integrated appliances, a large central island with electric hob, basin and hot water tap, built-in wine fridge, and porcelain flooring with underfloor heating.
On the first floor are three double bedrooms, two of which boast en suite shower rooms while a third enjoys access to a stylish family bathroom with a freestanding bathtub. There are two additional bedrooms and a loft room on the second floor, making an ideal space for older children or visiting guests.
The property has excellent kerb appeal and is set back from the road behind an ample-sized gravel carriage driveway providing off-street parking for a number of vehicles with a neat landscaped front garden and access to a detached double garage with a wine cellar.
The wrap-around rear garden is an excellent size and features a large level lawn flanked with various flowerbeds and shrubs with a spacious decking area for al fresco dining in the warmer months. There is also a well-sized outdoor summerhouse complete with a wood-burning stove which has excellent potential to be utilised as a separate entertaining space.
