Wolds House is a four bedroom family home in an idyllic village setting standing in just under half an acre of old orchard land once belonging to The Manor. Available on the open market for the first time in 40 years this beautifully maintained home built in 1978 represents a rare and exciting opportunity and offers considerable potential subject to the necessary approvals. Flooded with natural light, this immaculately presented detached home with unusually large rooms features a dual aspect sitting room with open fire, large dining room, breakfast kitchen, four double bedroom and generous family bathroom. The driveway provides ample hardstanding, access to an integral double garage and the beautifully maintained gardens extend to all sides. Goadby Marwood is a ‘no through’ village located on the edge of the Vale of Belvoir well placed for access to Leicester, Nottingham, Grantham and Stamford.
Goadby Marwood is an unspoilt village 6 miles north of Melton Mowbray on the edge of the Vale of Belvoir. Most of the houses are built from locally mined ironstone and some, including the impressive Goadby Hall date from the 17th century. Surrounded by picturesque countryside, Goadby Marwood features a 13th century church and village hall and as a ‘no through’ village ensures a quiet and secure village lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The near-by villages of Waltham on the Wolds and Scalford offer local shopping facilities and popular pubs.

The property occupies a large plot extending to 0.45 of an acre in total. To the front, a generous driveway provides ample parking and access to an integral double garage. Wolds House was built on orchard land once belonging to the neighbouring Manor and a number of old fruit trees remain in the gardens which extend to all sides of the property.

The side garden was once home to a gaggle of geese, includes a wildlife pond and number of established trees. The Title Deeds to this land allow for an extension to Wolds House, subject to planning approval.
