General - An exceptionally rare opportunity has arisen to build an outstanding 3900 sq ft country house, with haybarns and stabling extending to approx. 1435 sq feet. The site is set in approx 6 acres of pasture land approximately half a mile to the North of Thorpe By Water in some of Rutland's most attractive countryside.

Transport links are excellent with the A47 just 3 miles to the north linking the village to Leicester and Peterborough. Mainline trains are available from Kettering, Corby and Market Harborough with services from Kettering taking just under an hour to reach London St Pancras International. Immediately to the north is Rutland Water where there are numerous leisure opportunities including sailing, windsurfing, walking, cycling, fishing and golf. Hambledon Hall with its Michelin starred restaurant overlooks the waters. There is also a very fine 18 hole golf course at Luffenham Heath.
