The property

Set in the picturesque market town of Uppingham, is this remarkable Georgian townhouse, No 2 Queen Street.

Beautifully presented with an elegant style whilst retaining traditional features, No 2 Queen Street offers the ultimate setting for a luxurious escape to the tiny and unspoilt county of Rutland in the East Midlands.

Upon arrival to the property, you'll be charmed by the gorgeous frontage, with large Georgian windows and trellises looped with plants decorating the stonework, enticing you through the emerald green doorway and into the cottage.

Step over the threshold and into the hallway, fitted with a rustic shabby chic décor, and continue through to the snug sitting room, where the property's traditional character is retained through the exposed wooden floorboards and a rustic open fire, offering the perfect ambiance to escape into a good book for a few hours.

The traditional character continues through to the open plan kitchen/diner, where a classic range cooker takes prominent position, inviting you to prepare a heart-warming meal that you can gather around the table to indulge in.

Step outside to savour an evening glass of wine in the courtyard garden, beneath the twinkling lights that decorate the sky above, perfect for creating an intimate setting.

The lower ground floor boasts the property's hidden gem, a unique cinema room, where you can choose an exciting movie from the vast selection available, put your feet up and enjoy a charming hideaway away from the main area of the house.

As the evening grows darker, head upstairs to the master bedroom on the first floor, with a spacious bed and beautifully appointed with a neutral colour scheme, complimented by the rustic wooden furnishings.

Completing the first floor is the family bathroom, featuring a bathtub with shower over, so you can decide whether to enjoy a leisurely soak or to steam away the day.

Adjacent to the bathroom is a dressing room offering ample storage to house your belongings along with a marvellous French-style antique dressing table where you can prepare for your day in style.

Two additional bedrooms can be found up another set of stairs to the second-floor, both with a sumptuous double to rest your head, brightly decorated whilst the traditional styling remains present in the contrasting wooden furnishings.

Step out the door and into the heart of Uppingham, where honey-coloured stone buildings line the streets, playing host to a range of gift and interior design shops, traditional family retailers, antique and art galleries perfect for browsing; Uppingham can still boast its own bakery and high quality butchers and has a very popular Friday market in the Market Place from 8am to 4pm with a great selection of stalls to look at and buy from; take a break in the friendly tea shops and coffee houses on the High Street and hidden in the backstreet yards full of historical charm, or book a beauty treatment at the salon just across the street; Restaurants, both casual and high end, are just a few steps away from the house, and pubs in the neighbouring streets are welcoming and offer pool, televised sports, social events and comedy evenings.

Enjoy a stroll around the nearby Wardley Woods or travel further North to Rutland Water Nature Reserve and take in the sights of the wetland, discovering lagoons and islands as well as 31 birdwatching hides, Rutland also has a water park with the largest selection of inflatables and a beach.

Uppingham is nestled between the two bustling cities of Leicester and Peterborough where you can enjoy a spot of shopping or a fun-filled night out.

Play a round of golf at Leicester's Humberstone Heights Golf Course or learn about rockets and satellites at The National Space Centre.

A visit to Melton Mowbray is a must, home to the famous Pork Pie and Stilton cheese.

About the location

UPPINGHAM

Oakham 6.1 miles; Rutland Water 5.6 miles; Stamford 12.5 miles; Melton Mowbray 17 miles; Leicester 20 miles.

Uppingham is a picturesque traditional Rutland market town with honey-coloured stone buildings offering a range of speciality shops, traditional family retailers, antique galleries, art galleries and tea rooms as well as country pubs, a weekly Friday market and an award-winning Heritage Trail which highlights the many historic features of the town. In the centre is the Market Square with the original fountain, where a temporary livestock market has been held every year since 1889. Uppingham and the surrounding area are steeped in history and offer something to suit all tastes and interests. Many sporting events are available at Rutland Water including walking, fly fishing, birdwatching, cycling and horse riding as well as golf, rock climbing, a high rope course and numerous watersports. Just a short drive takes you to Burghley House, one of the grandest houses of the Elizabethan Age, home to Burghley Horse Trails and offering Capability Brown-designed gardens. This stunning house was used in the filming of Pride and Prejudice and The Da Vinci Code. Rockingham Castle, built on behalf of William the Conqueror, is open to the public throughout the summer, and plays host to events throughout the year including International Horse Trials, music festivals and family events. The town of Stamford, known as the finest stone town in England, and Oakham with its castle with horseshoes, heritage trail, and bi-weekly markets and monthly farmers’ market, are both worth a visit. Rockingham Speedway offers numerous track events throughout the year, or why not try out one of their many track days? The area boasts many award-winning pubs and restaurants with local produce such as cheese, bread, meats and fish, all of which can be bought at one of the many markets in the Rutland area. Visit the city of Leicester, nestling on the River Soar on the edge of the National Forest and the burial place of King Richard III, or the 'Rural Capital of Food' Melton Mowbray, home to the famous Pork Pie and Stilton cheese. Uppingham was voted best place to live in the Midlands by The Sunday Times in 2020 due to the traditional high street with specialist shops and overwhelmingly friendly locals.
