Experience Georgian grandeur with contemporary comfort, at Number 78, High Street, conveniently located in the heart of the thriving market town of Oakham.

78 High Street

Grade II listed and emanating regency charm, No. 78 enjoys an element of detachment, at the end of a row of three-storey town townhouses. Fully renovated for the modern era, prestigious period features harmonise with the carefully considered modern upgrades to create a characterful home ripe for contemporary living.

Georgian Grandeur

Approaching the traditional fanlight-topped front door, make your way indoors into the entrance hallway. Flagstone flooring underfoot and crisp white walls create a clean and fresh feel, with high ceilings and a broad archway drawing your eye to the light and grand staircase ahead.

Resplendent Receptions

Dressed in a light, fresh lichen green, take the door to the left to arrive at the grandly proportioned sitting room, with a handsome redbrick fireplace. Original, shuttered sash windows overlooking the front draw in an abundance of light, whilst deep skirtings, and high ceiling with ornate cornicing embody the elegance of this home’s period heritage. Wine and dine in the formal dining room adjacent to the sitting room, where soft putty and white shades combine for an austere and classic ambience. A flexible space that could also serve as a study or playroom, fitted storage is available beside the redbrick fireplace while French doors link to the outdoors. Across the entrance hallway, there is ample storage beneath the stairs.

Hub of the Home

Step through to discover the light and bright kitchen, the hub of the home. An array of stylish, contemporary grey cabinetry provides plenty of storage, while the central island with breakfast bar seating makes for a sociable, everyday dining space. Furnished with a range of integrated appliances, including double oven, induction hob, wine fridge and a stylish undermounted sink, all you need to cook up a delicious dinner for family and friends is at hand. Open plan, yet cleverly zoned to offer subtle separation, an archway flows to a relaxed seating area to the rear; an ideal family room with dining area perfectly positioned before the wall of bifolding doors that open onto the garden. Entertain al fresco on the broad terrace, for summer soirees with family and friends. Enjoy this room throughout the seasons; warmed by underfloor heating and served by air conditioning. Leading off from the kitchen is a handy laundry with cloakroom.

Bedtime Beckons

A staircase from the kitchen leads to the first bedroom, a bright, light-filled room that is served by a Jack and Jill shower room, providing access back to the main landing. Returning to the entrance hallway, admire the elegance of the original, grand staircase, following its dramatic, monkey tail handrail two flights up to the second floor where you will discover two large double bedrooms. The first, a sumptuous room with two sash windows and luxurious en suite bathroom, would make an ideal guest suite, while the second bedroom overlooks the rear garden and is served by a stylish, contemporary shower room.

First Floor Fabulous

Descending now to the first floor, the fourth double bedroom has a window to the rear and characterful, ornamental fireplace. Stepping through a panelled door discover the sumptuously sized principal suite to the front, with high ceiling, traditional style radiator, large sash windows and ornamental fireplace. Enjoy an indulgent soak in the en suite, furnished with large bath and overhead rainfall shower vanity unit wash basin and separate lavatory. Each bedroom embodies period charm, with high ceilings and deep skirtings and large sash windows, creating a home that draws in light at every turn.

Walled Oasis

Outside, the south-west facing, sunny garden features a large terrace, ideal for summer soirees and barbecues. Fully enclosed for children and pets, the lawned area leads on to a handy gravelled parking area.
