Full description

A unique opportunity has arisen to acquire a redevelopment site to erect a substantial Country House, Stabling and Outbuildings with an adjoining grass paddock extending in total to approximately 6.0 acres, in a rural location within the Welland Valley, close to one of Rutland's most picturesque villages. The site is situated approximately 0.5 mile to the north of the village of Thorpe by Water and extends in total to approximately 6.0 acres, which has full Planning permission (Rutland County Council Planning Ref: 2018/0197/FUL) to demolish the existing house, kenneling and other ancillary accommodation to enable the erection of a replacement substantial dwelling extending to approximately 3,900 sq ft with Stabling and Hay Barns extending to approximately 1,435 sq ft and a triple bay Garage plus an adjoining grass paddock extending to total to approximately 6.0 acres.

Location - This site lies approximately 0.5 miles to the north of the village of Thorpe by Water in the county of Rutland.

Thorpe by Water is a beautiful small rural village largely made up of mellow stone cottages and period houses. The village lies a few miles to the south of the Rutland market town of Uppingham, where there are main facilities and amenities, together with a full range of shops and a weekly produce market catering for most needs. In addition, there are other facilities including doctors' and dentists' surgeries, post office, library and a wide variety of schools, both Local Authority and independent, for children of all age ranges.

For commuters the village is within easy driving distance of a number of centres including Oakham, Corby, Kettering, Market Harborough, Leicester and Peterborough. There are good train services to London from both Kettering and Peterborough, the journey time from the latter destination to London St Pancras International taking just under an hour.

In the surrounding countryside one can enjoy many local leisure pursuits, particularly at Rutland Water approximately 7 miles away, which offers sailing, fishing, walking and cycling. Facilities for other sports including football, cricket, rugby, tennis, bowls, golf etc., are all available locally, including an excellent 18-hole golf course at Luffenham Heath. The renowned Hambleton Hall hotel with its Michelin-starred restaurant overlooks the Rutland Water.
