Property description

The charming hamlet of Southorpe is located approximately five miles from the Georgian market town of Stamford and about 9 miles from the Cathedral City of Peterborough, the latter offering a high-speed rail link to London, King’s Cross. Situated amidst gently undulating countryside, Southorpe is well placed for access to both Stamford and Peterborough with the popular village of Ufford, noted for its many stone properties dating from 17th and 18th centuries, village hall and excellent public house/restaurant, a short walk away.

The area has excellent state and private schooling in Stamford, Oakham, Uppingham and Oundle. Leisure pursuits are well catered for including golf at Burghley Park, Peterborough Milton, Luffenham Heath and Greetham Valley Golf Clubs. Popular Rutland Water with its nature reserve, sailing, water sports, cycling and trout fishing is some 7 miles to the west, whilst Tallington Lakes is a more local option too. The open countryside surrounding Southorpe offers a network of footpaths and bridleways for exploration also.

Bottom Farmhouse is a most attractive detached house made of local stone, sitting discretely to the southern edge of the hamlet of Southorpe. The property is compact yet offers a versatile living and entertaining space, good sized garden, private terraced seating area, off-street parking, and a useful single Garage in addition. Bottom Farmhouse is the first of three properties accessed off Main Street down an attractive gravelled driveway to a more open parking area.

On entering the property through the front door, a useful internal porch area provides both a thermal break from the heart of the home and a chance to hang coats and remove outside shoes. Continuing into the generous breakfast kitchen there is a feeling of light and space complimented by windows to the front and side elevations as well as a door to the garden and terrace to the rear. The feature inglenook fireplace provides a focus for this modern space with a nod to the history of an older property.

From the Kitchen and via the internal hallway you pass the downstairs w/c and under stair cupboard. To the southern end of the ground floor is the sitting room with wood burning stove and views south across the garden. The study, with south facing window and the recently added Garden room. The Garden room provides a versatile space with large windows on two sides and expansive views to the south over the garden and to the countryside beyond.

Returning to the inner hallway, stairs rise to the first floor where may be found 3 large double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom has a feature vaulted ceiling with beautiful, exposed timbers ensuring a theatrical experience and further feeling of light and space.

An attractive gravel drive leads from the road to a parking area in front of the Garages for Bottom Farmhouse and its neighbours. To the front is a modest raised terrace with decorative plantings and to the immediate rear, accessed from the Kitchen, a further private terraced area for al fresco dining and seating. The south facing Garden is laid to lawn and is secured by discrete fences and stone walls adding notable character to this attractive property.
