The first Shouler & Son residential lettings instruction for January has just ‘gone live’ and is available, by appointment, for viewings to prospective tenants looking for a family home in a village setting.

Orchard House, South Street, Scalford, Melton is a detached, four bedroom, two reception room property with a conservatory, walled garden, garage and off-street parking.

Scalford is four miles from Melton Mowbray and has a primary school, a public house and, according to Shoulers’ lettings agency, is a popular village among residential occupiers looking for ease of access to Melton’s market town amenities and the area’s regional road networks.

With uPVC double glazing and neutral décor throughout, there is a newly fitted hard oak front door and staircase.

Ground floor living accommodation sees a tiled entrance hall, sitting room and large kitchen/breakfast room open dining space.

There is a kitchen pantry and a rear lobby leads to the utility room and downstairs cloakroom.

Upstairs is a large landing and the four bedrooms - of which three are double bedrooms - and the family bathroom.

The roof loft is fully boarded.

Shoulers advises that there is scope for the tenancy to include a small dog, subject to discussion and agreement.

Summarising Orchard House as the inaugural lettings instruction of the year, Dan Barradale, who heads Shoulers’ residential lettings agency, said, “Our sense of the market for the coming year is that detached, family properties in such sought after villages are going to come forward for letting on very rare occasions.

“While likely to attract a family, trends for working from home permanently or in a hybrid-mix could see Orchard House suited to a couple of business professionals who, as tenants, are looking to make the transition from a town or more dense urban area to a more rural, village setting.”

Orchard House, South Street, Scalford, Melton is available to rent at £1,650 pcm.

Viewing of the property to let is strictly by appointment only through Shouler & Son.
