The village dates back to 1086 when it was first mentioned in the Doomsday Book, and overlooks the beautiful Vale of Belvoir from a height of 560ft, making it the second highest village in the county. Within the village is a church, village hall, primary school, public house, shop/post office, first class delicatessen, medical practice, all of which are integral to this thriving community with various local groups e.g. Scout Club, Pre-School Club, W.I., Neighbourhood Watch etc. For commuters Waltham is conveniently positioned with easy access to a number of centres and with a mainline railway station available in Grantham, the drive time to the station is very quick and the service to London Kings Cross takes approximately 65 minutes, with the service from Melton Mowbray travelling between Birmingham and Norwich.

The property will be built in a barn conversion style with integrated character and a mixture of limestone and brick frame and a red pantile roof.

Planning permission was granted by Melton Borough Council on 23 July 2015. Planning application reference number: 15/00347/FUL. A copy of these plans and planning permission are available by our offices upon request or by visiting Melton Borough Council.

The property fronts onto Melton Road and also has rear access from The Paddocks. The property has the benefit of a sweeping in and out driveway between these two roads with an abundance of off street parking. There is a double open barn which would be an ideal space for further conversion into a car port. The driveway leads to an internal yard which currently provides hardstanding and access through to the double integral garage. There is a combination of stone walling and fencing to the boundaries and large gates to the bottom and top yard provide secure access. Whilst the yard is a sign of its former use it is a good size to make formal gardens, there is also parking located in front of the annexe accessed from The Paddocks.
