A 19th Century residential lodge at the entrance to Melton Mowbray’s Thorpe Road cemetery is one of the latest properties local agent Shouler & Son has in its summer portfolio of new letting instructions.

Cemetery Lodge is a detached, three bedroom, period residence which, in its presentation for modern residential use and recent redecoration, has retained many of its original character and features.

Set in mature gardens and with gated off-road parking, the lodge property has a gated porchway leading to the entrance hall through a heavy timber door.

Inside, there are two reception rooms in which the stone mullioned windows have been retained.

In the larger of the reception rooms there is a leaded bay window and, in the second reception room, there is an original cast iron fire surround.

There is a modern kitchen, a walk in pantry and, additionally, a utility room.

The bathroom is downstairs.

Upstairs, arranged around the one landing, are three double bedrooms. All three bedrooms have vaulted ceilings and ornamental cast iron fireplaces.

Dan Barradale, professional associate, is the Shouler & Son’s agent who is leading the letting of Cemetery Lodge on behalf of the landlord.

Acknowledging that the property is a ‘one-off’ in the in the Melton Mowbray rental market, he said, “The lodge is definitely in a quirky and - to state the obvious - a quiet setting.

“But that can only add to its appeal to the right tenant.

“The accommodation makes it an ideal family property. Alternatively, it could suit a young professional couple who work from home or like to entertain guests.”

The property is offered to let as part-furnished at £1,195 pcm, including water charges.

A small dog may be permitted as part of the tenancy, subject to the landlord’s agreement and an additional fee.
