Vendor Insight - When children draw their first dream house, it usually contains a welcoming front door, surrounded by four windows, a pretty garden to the front and, idyllically, is set next to a church. This, fabulous, three storey spacious home ticks all these boxes, plus it is located in the heart of this delightful village which is adjacent to the breathtaking countryside of the Vale of Belvoir. The village of Scalford has an excellent community spirit, one with residents taking time to say hello. Many social activities take place here, including those in the friendly pub which hosts a party on Bonfire Night and the annual chicken race. There is a well stocked post office/shop, but the market town of Melton Mowbray is just a few miles away, where, apart from supermarkets, there are several independent shops and its Farmers? Market is extremely popular. Nottingham and Leicester are very close, but Grantham is the preferred location for the main line station for journeys into Kings Cross of around one hour. ?The Old Schoolhouse has been our idyllic family home since 2012. Built in 1905 it has been lovingly cared for and maintained by all its previous owners and was in excellent condition when we came to live here. The top floor provides us with two extra bedrooms, which is perfect for teenagers and when the whole family comes to stay at Christmas the house comfortably embraces everyone. Our relaxing and elegant main reception/dining room fits every conceivable purpose. Excellent for large groups, especially in the summertime when its doors are open wide and we can all spill out into the garden. The layout of the house is so flexible and we choose to use what had been a dining room as our second reception room which suits our lifestyle admirably.? ?Whilst living here we have enjoyed an outstanding quality of life. We adore the house, village and its location, especially the many wonderful walks that we have done from the door. We will be extremely sad to say goodbye and will have many happy memories of our time here.?
