Full description


We have pleasure in offering to the market this delightful character cottage which offers a deceptive level of accommodation having been extended to the rear elevation and is situated in a delightful quiet backwater, tucked away within this highly regarded and much sought after Vale of Belvoir village.

Chimneys offers a considerable level of accommodation extending to approximately 1700 sq ft, constructed of attractive brick and Belvoir Ironstone elevations beneath a traditional clay pantiled roof, and has been re-modelled and tastefully refurbished throughout retaining much of its inherent character but also combining this with the benefits of contemporary living.

Internally the features include exposed ironstone and brick walls, beamed ceilings and cottage latch doors, there is a combination of floor coverings including attractive oak strip wood flooring to the main entrance hall, and sitting room and a beautiful slate floor to the kitchen.

The accommodation extends to three main reception rooms including a delightful initial entrance vestibule with attractive ironstone fireplace, heavily beamed ceiling, beautiful walk-in cupboard and ground floor cloakroom. The main sitting room is a particularly generous reception benefitting from windows to two elevations as well as French doors leading out into the rear garden, with attractive solid fuel stove, exposed beams and ironstone internal elevation. The separate dining room is a versatile space leading off the kitchen creating an excellent everyday living/entertaining area, again with access out into the garden and also offers a useful utility area. The farmhouse style breakfast kitchen has been sympathetically refurbished with a traditional style bespoke kitchen, solid butcher's block work surfaces, central island unit and attractive slate floor.

To the first floor there are three double bedrooms, the master benefitting from an initial dressing area as well as ensuite facilities and superb panoramic views across the property's landscaped garden and Vale countryside beyond with Belvoir Castle on the horizon. A large family bathroom services the two further bedrooms.

The property occupies a delightful established landscaped plot with generous off road car standing and beautiful garden to the rear which offers an excellent level of privacy as well as wonderful open views. An initial block set terrace leads off both the main reception rooms creating an excellent outdoor entertaining space, sleeper edged borders and gravelled steps lead up onto a shaped lawn with sweeping gravel pathway and well stocked perimeter borders with established trees and shrubs, all enclosed by picket and panelled fencing.

Overall viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate both this delightful location and the wealth of accommodation on offer.
