Full description

A distinctive detached period cottage offering extensive character and occupying a prominent mature plot situated in this favoured, vale of Belvoir village.

Property Description - Vine Cottage dates originally to c.1820 we are to believe and has been owned and lived in for over 25 years by the current vendors. During this time the property has been considerably improved and altered to provide an extremely comfortable home offering interesting accommodation with plentiful natural light and a wealth of character throughout. The reception space is especially charming with beamed ceilings and three separate reception rooms (one split level) in addition to the breakfast kitchen. The property is presented in excellent decorative order with a multitude of diverse 'nooks' and 'crannies' that can only be fully appreciated in person. It is evident that the property has been extended in previous years before the current vendors ownership. The internal accommodation in our opinion offers so much more than other comparable cottages we have appraised with a highlight being the handcrafted, custom breakfast kitchen with neat open pantry and range of pine cupboards / drawers with beech work surfaces over. The property benefits from mains gas central heating ( including wonderful gas range cooker) and all mains services.

Externally, the pretty carefully maintained mature gardens are segregated into different areas. They are enclosed and offer a paved sitting area for breakfast, lawned area with water feature, pergola and further paved area for BBQ'ing with plenty of space to the rear of the property for further storage. There is a brick outhouse comprising gardeners w.c with wash basin, storage space (housing tumble dryer), gardeners store all with light and power. There is a single off road parking space with access to the single garage with further storage in the eaves which would lend itself to office / studio space ( STP). There is also ample off site car parking for guests in close proximity to Vine Cottage.

The property is certainly distinguished from the outside and fronts the Harby road being located towards the centre of this peaceful, small vale village with a friendly community that offers a local pub, The Anchor and a Village Hall. There are numerous country walks via designated public footpaths and by the canal. Although possessing a Nottinghamshire postcode Plungar is actually a Leicestershire village, It lies in a triangle between Nottingham, Grantham and Melton Mowbray, about three miles south of the A52. It is part of Barkestone, Plungar and Redmile Parish Council, the three villages having an adult population of approximately 650 between them. Situated within the Melton District of Leicestershire, Plungar is situated in the picturesque Vale of Belvoir. The Vale of Belvoir is dominated by Belvoir Castle, perched on a hill with panoramic views of the surrounding area.
