Full description

The property, which is listed as a Grade II building of special architectural historic interest, originally formed part of a Coaching Inn and is believed to date from the 18th Century. It has been named as Thomas Churchyard House as the building was the subject of a painting by the well known local artist. Cleverly divided from the neighbouring property, Toll Rest, the house has been thoughtfully and imaginatively modernised to a high standard while successfully retaining the original character of the building.

The beamed ceilings found in the Hall, Sitting Room and Dining Room add to the character while the introduction of engineered oak and limestone tiled floors enhance the overall appearance. The Kitchen has been well fitted with painted units beneath the granite work tops and the double butler sink in the island unit is located opposite the stainless steel range cooker.

The main Bedroom has been fitted with an En-Suite Shower Room and all the rooms are of a good size with a very spacious Utility Room contained within the former Cellar.

There is an attractively planted small walled garden with a gate to one corner opening onto the parking area which is shared with the two neighbouring properties with two spaces owned by Churchyard House.

Melton has a good range of facilities including a small general store, butchers shop, primary school, recreation ground and a railway station and the village pub has recently undergone a scheme of general modernisation and improvement.
