Pepperwood House commands an enviable position, backing onto the south shores of Rutland Water.
This five bedroom detached home is 5 miles West of the A1 and almost equidistant from Uppingham, Stamford and Oakham (6-7 miles), all with reputable state and public schools. Edith Weston has a village shop-cum-post office, a public house, a church and a primary school. The extensive leisure facilities in the area include Walking, Cycling, Bird Watching, Sailing, Fishing and Golf.
The property is set over three floors.
The ground floor comprises an Entrance Hallway leading to a Games Room: 4.91m x 4.17m (16’1” x 13’8”), a Drawing Room: 4.90m x 3.34m (16’1” x 14’3”) with a cast iron gas fire, and a Study: 5.02m x 3.10m (16’6” x 10’2”) with a full length window providing views of the water. Further in, an Inner Hall//Snug reception room with a wood-burning stove leads to a WC with a high level flush, a Boot Room area: 4.77m x 2.24m (15’8” x 7’4”) and an adjoining Utility room: 3.19m x 2.14m (10’6” x 7’). Continuing through the snug/inner hall you come to a spectacular Kitchen/Diner/Reception Room:14.43m x 6.10m (47’4” x 20’) – most certainly one of the property’s stand out features. The Kitchen boasts bespoke wall and base units with granite tops, a 5 door AGA with gas hob and a separate double electric oven. A central island contains a drinks fridge and a small stainless steel sink while a larger butler sink, two large fridge freezers, a dishwasher with space and plumbing for a second and a walk in larder/dry food store are arranged around the periphery. In the kitchen area stone steps lead down to a small basement and there is also a large mezzanine walk in storage space accessed by a ladder. The Dining and Sitting area beyond has a double height pitched ceiling with exposed beams, low hanging pendant light fittings, ceiling fan, skylights and a wood burning stove. Patio doors at the end of the room with a pitched glass window above offer uninterrupted views and access out to the garden. There are also smaller patio doors to the garden on the west-facing aspect of the seating area.
The first floor has a carpeted Landing with a further staircase rising to the second floor. There are 3 of the 5 generous Bedrooms on this floor– the extended Master Suite: 6.79m x 5.48m (22’3” x 18’) incorporating a Dressing Room: 3.75m x 1.94m (12’4” x 6’4”) and Ensuite Shower Room: 2.82m x 2.76m (9’3” x 9’1”), has two seating areas one next to a Juliet Balcony and the other with large patio doors onto a walk-on balcony, both with magnificent outlooks. Bedroom 2: 4.97m x 4.17m (16’4” x 13’8”), Bedroom 5: 4.87m x 3.07m (16’ x 10’1”) and the Family Bathroom also lead off the first floor landing.
Two further Bedrooms can be found on the second floor – Bedroom 3: 4.52m x 4.33m (14’10” x 14’2”) and Bedroom 4: 5.13m x 3.31m (16’10” x 10’10”), both are spacious dual aspect rooms with far-reaching views. A corridor between the two rooms gives access to a bathroom with amazing views from both loo and bath, and a linen cupboard which houses the boiler.
The property benefits from gas central heating, fibre broadband and satellite television connection. It is not listed.
Pepperwood House has a small front garden with flowerbeds edged with a low stone and granite wall. To the side of the house, through electrically powered gates, an extensive pebbled yard bordered with granite cobbles offers parking for several cars.
The property backs onto Rutland Water and benefits from panoramic views from many of the rooms, from the patio and from the compact summer house. The plot is 0,28 acres and although it faces due north (which gives a wonderful light when looking out over the water) it is possible to find areas of the back garden bathed in sunlight all through the day, including places to watch the setting sun. The garden has been professionally landscaped and comprises lawns bordered by flowerbeds, three patio areas and paths made from reclaimed cobbles and paving stones. There is a large timber outbuilding incorporating a cycle shed, a tool shed, a garden tool shed, a potting shed and a woodpile. The summerhouse at the end of the garden offers a place to enjoy water, wildlife and sunsets in peace and tranquility.
