Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This imposing Edwardian building houses four exclusive apartments, this ground floor home boasts high ceilings, large rooms and many original features along with a pretty, enclosed garden and off road parking.

Claremont House although often linked with being a Hunting Lodge (possibly due to the Livery situated behind it), has for the majority of its life, been a family home or homes. Originally built by a brewer in 1905, he had his wifes initials and date included on a plaque above the front door. Residing there until 1910, it was then inhabited by the Swann family who raised five girls there. More recently in the early 2000's the building was renovated and became 4 apartments.
Flat 2 is the only one with its own garden, overlooked from both the kitchen and the stately living room. To the back of the building, it also shares a communal garden area with the rest of the residents of Claremont House.
Set back from Burton Road it enjoys the commuter links this brings including a regular bus service to Leicester, Nottingham, Oakham and the town centre. Being a 10 minute walk from the train station and the town centre, park and Leisure centre, and close to local schools adds to the attraction of this location.
Off road parking and its own private gate into the garden or secure parking if required are just a few of the advantages this home offers before you have even looked inside!

Entering the large communal hall through the tall sheltered front door, immediately transforms you back to Edwardian times. The elaborate staircase leads up to the first floor passing a large ornate stained glass window on its journey to flats 3 and four. Sitting opposite its neighbour Flat 1, at the foot of the stairs is Flat 2 where our adventure begins.

In through the front door a long hallway guides to all rooms of this home culminating at the end, in the kitchen. Here the galley kitchen with its handmade wooden units, range and belfast sink, makes the most of modern day living whilst still keeping the feel of the past. This room, more than likely a boot room or washroom in its former life, has a beautiful view of the garden, with its array of pretty flowers and small pond.

Next to the kitchen, on the left a great size bathroom with its cast iron roll top bath, a nod to the past, but with a powerful shower providing up to date wants of living in the 21st Century.
Opposite here the entrance to the cellar, a great storage space for maybe an extra freezer, wine or just those extra bits and bobs you cannot throw away. For those with imagination or vision it could be made into something more frivolous such as a sauna room.

Back down the hall towards the front door, are the two double bedrooms, both with high ceilings and large windows, the larger of the two with built in cupboards and a feeling of peace and luxury. These rooms, most probably the larger of the two was the kitchen, still with the call bells lined up on the wall, and the smaller of the two, the scullery, are private and not overlooked with views to the side aspect.

Lastly to the left of the front door when entering this home, is the wonderful living room. A large open fire in a cast iron feature fire place dominates the back wall emanating heat and dancing light when lit, this is the favourite room of the current owners, the gentleman particularly enjoying it in winter. A lovely walk in bay window next to the door into the rear garden, is the favourite spot for the lady of the house, in summer sitting here in the sun that bathes the room in light whilst admiring the garden or reading a book. This is a large room with high ceilings and has an overall feeling of grandness yet cosy and homely. The wooden door leading into the garden opens onto a paved patio area a fantastic place to sit a relax in the sun, enjoy a glass of something in the evening or perhaps entertain family and friends.

They say home is where the heart is and this home certainly has heart.... has it won yours?
