A glorious renovated 4 bedroom period family home with a stunning breakfast kitchen leading to a South West facing orangery and garden room. Set in 3.17 acres with extensive barns and outbuildings.


Freeby is a quintessential small English village set just to the south of the A607 Melton to Grantham road in lovely open countryside.

Some 13 miles from Grantham and 20 miles from Leicester, there
are excellent road and rail connections from both these major
regional centres. Nottingham to the north is also within easy reach across the Vale of Belvoir. The excellent facilities and amenities in Melton Mowbray are within 4 miles where there is also a regional/ cross country railway station.


Rustic House Farm comprises a fine principal house, restored and renovated to a high standard offering well proportioned rooms with aspects over the mature gardens and views to the open countryside beyond.

A stunning orangery/garden room is set to the rear of the house which opens through from the breakfast kitchen to create a magnificent further reception area with under floor heating to the tiled floor and access directly out onto the delightful stone walled rear courtyard area. There is a very large reception hall set to the side of the house which links through to the study and a recently renovated range of two storey accommodation suitable for additional bedroom accommodation or to be finished to a purchasers choice. It also benefits from an independent access from the stable courtyard.

To the side and rear of the house and approached off the split driveway is the lovely range of period stables and barns providing scope for alternative uses all arranged round a landscaped courtyard area.

The grounds and gardens are a particular feature of the house
providing a good degree of privacy, yet with views out over the
adjoining countryside. There are two generous small lakes and an adjoining paddock. In all some 3.17 acres.

A fine open entrance porch to a generous main reception hall,
Drawing room set to the front of the house with views across the garden. Dining room, again with garden views and an attractive chimney piece. Cloakroom with W.C. Also on the ground floor is a very spacious family room/sitting room with a high beamed ceiling and an attractive wide Inglenook fireplace with a feature Italian ceramic wood burner. The breakfast kitchen is set to the rear of the house with an aspect onto the rear landscaped courtyard area and is well fitted with an extensive range of fitted cupboards, a range of built in appliances and a double oven Aga with side matching electric
companion cooker, set beneath a carved stone lintel. This opens out on to the wonderful south west facing Orangery/garden room, the whole including the kitchen with under floor heating to the tiled floor and bespoke handmade joinery to the windows and French doors which look out onto and with access to the carefully landscaped, private courtyard area to the rear. There is a glazed gable roof section linking from the Orangery to the front of the house with access to high walled private courtyard area. Also on the ground floor is a spa/small garden room (spa available separately) with fully tiled modern shower room and W.C off. Spacious utility/second preparation kitchen. There is a substantial rear hallway which can double as a useful boot room which has a vaulted high timber ceiling and an additional access through to a rear stable courtyard. From this hallway area is
a good cloakroom and a study and onto a further range of partly
renovated accommodation suitable for additional bedroom and living accommodation if required or to be arranged to a purchaser's choice.

To the first floor of the main house off an attractive period staircase is a large well lit landing with lovely views, leading to a master bedroom with double aspect and attractive views. Side lobby area with large walk-in wardrobe and a spacious refitted en suite bathroom with a freestanding bath, twin wash hand basins and a large shower enclosure and a door to a terrace area with open views.
