Garden House, Rutland (SOLD)

For Sale with Strutt & Parker:
An Opportunity To Purchase A Scenic Plot On The Hambleton Peninsula

Tenure: Freehold
Guide Price: £3,000,000
Acreage: 15.59 Acres

Property Summary

The garden house on Hambleton peninsula sits in an elevated position overlooking the stunning Rutland Water. The main property sits on 15 acres of land and importantly is unlisted, creating an unprecedented development opportunity to propose plans for a significant new build country house.

Whilst the property is in need of work and modernisation, the location of the site means that it is unlikely to stay on the market for very long. Hambleton is one of the most sought after and unspoilt villages in Rutland, it’s position on Rutland Water will appeal to all those with a penchant for sailing, windsurfing, walking, cycling fishing and a myriad of other activities on this 1000 acres of nature reserve.

Key Features

The Garden House
Built in 1979 the main property includes five bedrooms, double garage, study, drawing, dining and breakfast rooms, which are all in need of significant updating or indeed demolishing, in place of a country home that is designed to be timeless.

Stabling, Paddock & Woodland
The land, which has been in the same family for a number of generations includes gardens that wrap around the house and boarded by yew trees. This creates an intimacy on the plot and is an effective screen from the ground of Hambleton Hall. The land also has stables and paddocks with separate gated access.

Development Observations

Janine Stone & Co. has assessed the potential opportunities to bring Garden House into modern standing.

“Whilst it’s possible to restore the existing home, it would be a missed opportunity for any new owner of Garden House, not to consider planning a new country house that befits the bucolic surroundings of Rutland Water.”

  • As an unlisted property, demolition and replacement of main dwelling is a possibility if plans are sensitively and diligently prepared.
  • Four wooden stables, adjacent to the existing paddock grounds present the possibility of conversion.
  • Multiple access paths to the the site, allow for partitioning of the land for other potential uses.
