Following having been lived in by the same family for almost 50 years, The Old Bakehouse in Hallaton, a picturesque village within the popular Welland Valley in Leicestershire, has recently come on to the property sales market with estate agents Andrew Granger & Co.
As the date stone states, The Old Bakehouse was built in 1718 by the Rev. Benjamin Bewicke, Lord of the Bardolph Manor of Hallaton. Originally thatched with dormer windows, the roof was raised and slated together with sash windows installed in Victorian times. The property served as a bakehouse for the village right up to 1963 having been in the Barnett family since 1841.
The attractive Grade II listed, 300-year-old detached five-bedroom family home occupies a large corner plot of approximately 0.36 acres bound by a delightful walled garden and offers a spacious 3,000 sq. ft. of versatile living space.
Retaining a wealth of period features this charming character property includes beamed ceilings, the original baking oven, sash windows to the front elevation, and inglenook fireplaces.
The gardens form a particularly attractive feature of the house with sweeping lawns, well stocked flower beds, various seating areas, a greenhouse, gazebo, and a vegetable and soft fruit growing area. To the side of the house, metal framed timber clad gates open onto a gravelled driveway leading to wooden framed car ports, with covered space for three cars.
It’s not often that properties such as these come to the market, this being shown with the current owners having loved it and lived there for so long. So, this is a rare opportunity to acquire and care for such a special property, so that it can be enjoyed for many more years to come.
