Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Dating back to the 1300's Grange Farm has an interesting history being both a former hospital and a working farm. Now it is ready for its next chapter in life, and requiring some modernisation.

Set in a lovely rural location at the top of Hortons lane, you approach via a gravelled driveway, to the entrance to the south of the property. The porch leads into the hall with the cloakroom to the left. Moving forward to the right is the dining room which has a dual aspect, beamed ceiling, working open fire and former bread oven. To the right is a utility room with a WC and up steps to an office and the coal / wood store. This area could be converted into a perfect home office.

To the left of the hall is the kitchen with an oil fired Aga and adjacent pantry. Steps lead down to a more contemporary extension with a wonderfully light and spacious sitting room which has French doors opening onto the south facing garden and overlooking rolling paddock land.

On the first floor, the large principal bedroom has an ensuite and doors out to a balcony from which you can enjoy wonderful southerly views. There are 3 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Grange Farm is conjoined to a range of barns, with a current planning application to develop into a single dwelling.

Tucked away off all main roads, Whissendine enjoys the tranquility of beautiful rural surroundings and easy access to local market towns being almost equidistant between Oakham and Melton Mowbray.

The village has at least 1,000 years of history, being mentioned in the Domesday Record. The
name's origin, Wyckinga's Den, is Anglo Saxon
and means 'valley with a stream belonging to Wick's people'. And the Whissendine Brook is still a central feature of the village.

The village benefits from a public house The White Lion, a village shop, hairdressers and an active community with daily events such as Archery, Pilates and Line dancing held in either the village hall or Sports Club, deriving from a strong sense of community highlighted by the village website

St Andrew's Church is one of the largest in Rutland, its impressive 100-foot tower can be glimpsed across the rolling countryside from
several miles away.

Schooling is excellent in the area with both Whissendine Church of England Primary school, and Catmose College in nearby Oakham receiving "Outstanding" Ofsted reports, and the renowned Uppingham and Oakham public schools close by.

Nearby Rutland Water provides a wonderful array of water sports and leisure pursuits and nearby Stapleford Trot provides 18 miles of off road riding.

Grange Farm driveway wraps around the house
providing parking for several vehicles and has a single garage. The south facing garden has a mature Walnut tree.

A further 2.412 acres, including a pond replenished by a spring, are available by separate negotiation immediately to the south of the property and bordering the garden.
