Property details

A delightful stone fronted Grade II Listed country cottage of immense charm and character located in the heart of the picturesque and highly sought after Welland Valley village of Great Easton surrounded by beautiful south east Leicestershire countryside.

Believed to date back to circa 1760, this beautifully restored and deceptively spacious cottage retains a wealth of period features, with circa 1,750 sq ft of accommodation, and is approached via an impressive reception hall with stone flagged flooring, feature fireplace with cast iron log burner and attractive staircase off, and an inner hall leads through to a fitted cloakroom/w.c.
