Tenure: Freehold

Lovely spacious rooms with a warm cottage yet modern feel, is the essence of this deceptively large family home. No garden maintenance but lovely paddock views and access to the wonderful Leicestershire countryside all year round.

Set in the historic village of Scalford approximately 4 miles from the Market Town of Melton Mowbray, this is the perfect country residence for those that either do not have the time or perhaps the inclination to garden, yet want to enjoy the country views and lifestyle.
Once named Ewe View Cottage due to the sheep in the paddock opposite, this home dates back to 1860 where originally it housed the village butcher, before in more recent times the village store before being restored to a family home.

Entering through the front door, a small hall space allows access to either side of the house and the stairs to the first floor.
Immediately to the left, the dining room, a lovely cosy room bathed in natural sunlight. The far wall is dominated by a large multi-fuel burner set in a feature fireplace, whilst the back wall is entirely glass folding doors opening to a lovely intimate patio/ terrace area, a great place to enjoy breakfast in the sun or something cold to drink later in the day.
This room is plenty large enough for a good size dining table and other furniture, it has a wonderful cottage feel reminding you of its past.

To the right of the front door you are lead into a large kitchen that compliments the cottage yet feels modern and light. Plenty of storage and work space for the chef of the family, and again with duel aspect windows a bright and airy room to work in. Room for a table or perhaps an island for those looking for extra use in their kitchen space.


Passing through the kitchen to the end of the cottage, a wonderfully relaxing, warm and again bright room. Whilst a fantastic feature fireplace housing another multi-fuel burner gives this room its warm feel, the over-riding best feature of this room is its views. The large front window acts as a picture frame to the paddock , sky and subsequent country side, the most fantastic place to chill, sit back , relax and watch the world go by letting all the stresses of the day ease away.

Up the stairs mirrors the downstairs layout, to the left a large single bedroom, again a bright and airy room that overlooks the side of the home and sits next to the family bathroom. A great child's bedroom or perhaps a spare guest room.
To the right of the stairs a good size double bedroom, also bathed in natural light due to the large window again overlooking the side of the property . This room feels light and airy with its high ceiling giving a feeling of space.

Finally at the far end of the hall, the master bedroom. This is the favourite room of the current owners and it is easy to see why. Triple aspect windows allow this room to be drenched in natural sunlight, High ceilings add to the feeling of space, with the room easily accommodating a super king size bed and other furniture without feeling crowded. The spectacular view as the curtains to the main window are opened takes you breath away - a wonderful feel good way to start every day. To finish this room, a great well thought out en-suite shower room compliments the room it serves .... perfect.

Outside there is no garden space however, a wide gravelled driveway allows for at least 2 cars to be parked off the main road. The current owners often sit out here in the summer un-noticed by passers by, and for those that would like to indulge in a little gardening, local allotments are a popular alternative.

So this is a fantastic opportunity for a first time buyer, investor or perhaps for those wishing to downsize or even have a pad in the country, what ever your reason for looking do not miss out, make that first move towards owning a home in the country..... book a viewing on line or call 24/7 to arrange a time convenient for you.
