Properties rarely come up for sale in Somerset Close, such is the desirability, therefore this is an unusual opportunity to acquire this beautifully presented and heavily extended three bedroomed detached home on an imposing corner plot. The property is situated on the edge of Melton Mowbray and picturesque country footpaths are close at hand.

This deceptively spacious property has seen many improvements over recent years, including a full width extension across the back of the property, providing a large dining room and an extended kitchen, an extension across the back of the garage providing a utility room and store, a stunning UPVC double glazed conservatory and a substantial brick built outhouse to the side of the property creating a much more convenient and effective alternative to a garden shed.

The internal accommodation is entered through a much improved solid oak clad porch, and the ground floor accommodation comprises; entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, dining kitchen, conservatory, utility room and store. The first floor comprises a galleried landing, three well proportioned bedrooms, a walk in wet room and a separate WC. Externally there is a driveway to the front providing off road parking for two vehicles and an attached garage. To the rear there are superbly maintained lawned gardens with a substantial timber pergola and a separate gravelled driveway having it's own access, ideal for caravan storage.

The historic town of Melton Mowbray is approximately one mile away and features a popular farmer's market on Tuesdays and Fridays along with high street shops, boutiques, restaurants and public houses, including the Anne of Cleves grade II listed public house which was bestowed to her by Henry VIII in the 16th century. There are several picturesque parks in the town including Play Close, Egerton Park and Wilton Park, and the Melton Country Park is located to the north of the town where pleasant walks can be taken to Scalford and beyond.

Melton Mowbray benefits from a railway station which is served by direct trains to and from Birmingham, Leicester, Peterborough, Cambridge and Stansted Airport. There is also currently one direct train per day to London St Pancras. The town is well served by the road network and the towns of Oakham, Leicester, Nottingham, Loughborough and Grantham all lie within reasonable commuting distance.
