Situated in a stunning setting along a wooded lane, just a short distance from the parish church and the village centre with its Green. Old Dalby is located on the edge of the Vale of Belvoir between Melton Mowbray and Nottingham. The village offers a Primary School, Public House ‘The Crown’ and Village Hall and is within a short drive of the market town of Melton Mowbray which offers a wide range of shops, schools and leisure facilities.



Old Dalby is well placed for access to the A46 ‘Fosse Way’ giving good access North to Nottingham and Newark or South to Leicester and the M1/M69. There are mainline Railway Stations in Nottingham, Leicester and Grantham giving direct access to London St Pancras or Kings Cross.





 



‘Parsonage House’ was originally built in the early 1850’s for Rev. Sawyer as the Vicarage. Rev.

The house had an extension to the front in the 1920’s and the Garden room, Utility and cellar were added in 2005.



The property is a stunning example of Victorian architecture with many features such as ornate brick work, chimneys and a delightful large stained glass window on the landing.



Standing to the rear of the plot is a self-contained Coach House/Annexe which we have let out for the current owners very successfully for many years, but would also make an ideal ‘Granny Annexe’, staff accommodation or office accommodation for those wishing to work/run a business from home (Planning Permission may be required).



As part of The Coach House is a large garage and a range of Stables/Outbuildings to the rear.

"Dear Danny, Just a quick note to say how impressed we are that the house has been relet so quickly. It is certainly a record and our family go back (as clients of Shouler & Son) a very long time! Please share this email with your superior."
