Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A detached ironstone house in splendid gardens with an adjoining paddock of just over an acre and a quarter, with mature deciduous trees fringing the garden that ensure privacy and fine rural views from the paddock. In addition, outbuildings are thought to have some ancillary use potential, subject to all consents.


Melton Mowbray caters for most day to day retail and shopping
needs, with a good range of independent and high street names
affording a choice of retail, restaurant and sports facilities.
Schooling for all ages is also well catered for within the town,
as are good east/west rail links between Birmingham and
Stansted Airports.

Well placed for wider road and rail connections to the capital,
the A1 is about 9 miles east of Waltham on the Wolds, at
Colsterworth. Grantham (10 miles north) has East Coast Mainline
commuter services to London Kings Cross from 64 minutes.
The regional economic centres of Leicester and Nottingham are
also commutable from the property.


A charming detached ironstone dwelling in mature gardens of just over 1.27 acres, with outbuildings, Broadcarr House occupies a rural setting, little more than a mile south of Waltham on the Wolds.

The house dates from the 1700s, but has been extended in
recent years. It retains a wealth of character, including stone
flagged and solid wood floors, exposed stonework walls, beamed
ceilings and intricately latticed windows, together with cast iron
rainwater goods. The wide stone flagged and stone walled entrance hallway, which is currently used as a study, and adjoining inner stairwell hall access the triple aspect sitting room and dual aspect dining room respectively. The oak floored breakfast room, with gas fired Aga, and fitted kitchen combine to offer a spacious family dining space. At first floor level, the principal bedroom is generously proportioned and has an en-suite shower room, whilst there are four further bedrooms and well-appointed family bathroom

Located to the west of the house, and adjoining the secondary
driveway, a single storey brick outbuilding range is currently
divided into workshop and store rooms, but is thought to
have potential for office or ancillary uses, subject to all
necessary consents. In addition, a large concrete framed building was formerly let to a business, but is now vacant. With electrics and plumbing the building currently offers basic storage and garaging

Square Footage: 2,217 sq ft
Acreage: 1.27 Acres
