Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This is a fabulously presented double-fronted stone house with standout family dining kitchen, detached ancillary cottage, garage and studio office, all within mature walled gardens.

Location

Sproxton is an attractive village amidst the Vale of Belvoir’s rolling farmland located almost equidistant in a triangle between the Market Towns of Grantham to the north, Melton Mowbray to the west and Oakham to the south.

With super-fast broadband and an active community, Sproxton supports The Crown Inn, a public house/restaurant, a cricket club, parish church and village hall. Primary education is in the neighbouring village of Buckminster, whilst the area in general is blessed with its choice of education.

Description

An attractive detached stone village property set back across a Green from the village’s lane, Apple Tree House has been extended, reconfigured and electrically rewired and re-plumbed as part of a comprehensive refurbishment in 2016.

Presented in first class order and with a modern layout and lovely flow that fits modern family life, this well-appointed house has two reception rooms and four bedrooms (one en-suite), whilst the dining kitchen is particularly impressive, combining a beautiful kitchen with a convivial space for family life or entertaining. Indeed, the property is used for promotional location shoots by brands which underlines the quality of the finish and presentation.

In addition, a detached two bedroom stone cottage within the grounds is ideal for relatives but is currently let as a successful Airbnb holiday cottage, whilst a studio adjoining the garage is used in connection with the seller’s reflexology business.

Gardens
The gardens lie to the south and west of the house and extend to 0.31 of an acre. A six bar gate opens to the gravelled driveway where there is space for parking, and which leads through to Apple Tree Cottage at the western end of the property.

Square Footage: 2,433 sq ft
Acreage: 0.31 Acres
