GENERAL INFORMATION


A most charming Grade II Listed period detached cottage with the benefit of a delightful thatched roof (re-thatched ridge 2017) and enjoying a prominent position within the heart of this ever popular village known as Melbourne. The property has retained much of its original charm and character and has been superbly upgraded and presented to a high standard and specification.


It offers five/six bedroom accommodation with five well proportioned reception rooms, well fitted kitchen and potential integrated dependant relatives accommodation with the additional benefit of a delightful enclosed garden having gated entrance and car standing space.


The property enjoys a host of original charm and character with oak doors throughout, many exposed beams to ceiling and original detail. A strongly recommended internal inspection will reveal elegant reception hall with herringbone oak floor and staircase to the first floor off, cloakroom, formal lounge with magnificent ingle nook feature fireplace and gas stove range, useful study/second sitting room, formal dining room, breakfast room with Rayburn and well-appointed fitted kitchen.


To the first floor the property enjoys a principal bedroom with magnificent exposed beams, two additional bedrooms and a superb sumptuously appointed refurbished stylish bathroom with period suite. To the first floor also, is a second lounge, which forms part of the dependant relative accommodation, which has been presented to a good standard with feature fireplace, adjacent fully equipped kitchen, bedroom and en-suite shower room. It has a separate staircase giving access to a second bedroom or useful dining room/snug for the dependant relatives' accommodation.


Outside, is a good sized workshop, a variety of timber garden stores, greenhouse and summerhouse, well-presented lawns with well-stocked flowering borders and beds offering a variety of specimen plants and shrubs giving an abundance of colour in the spring and summer. A gated entrance gives way to a paved off-road parking area.


The sale provides a very genuine opportunity for a discerning purchaser to acquire this sumptuously appointed highly individual and unique property, believed to have been a former farmhouse, which was then converted into separate accommodation, for we believe, up to five cottages and in later years it has been re-furbished back into a single dwelling. Construction is believed to be in the sixteenth century or thereabouts. It is indeed a feature of the street scene of Melbourne with its prominent position and swift and easy access to local facilities and therefore a viewing is strongly recommended.


LOCATION


The property enjoys a favoured position within walking distance of the comprehensive facilities available at Melbourne with its cosmopolitan shopping range, fine restaurants and bars, swift access to the Calke Abbey National Park, Staunton Harold Reservoir, East Midland's International Airport and the junctions of the M1 and M42.
