The house sits in the heart of the village, within the Welland Valley in the rolling south Leicestershire countryside. It is located in the extreme south-east of the county and is very close to the borders with Northamptonshire and Rutland; it is just south of the Eyebrook Reservoir.
There is a wide selection of state and independent schooling in the area including the local Bringhurst Primary School and Hallaton Primary School. Additional secondary schooling is available locally at Market Harborough or Corby, whilst notable private secondary schooling options are available at Uppingham, Oakham and Stamford Schools.
Market Harborough train station offers access to London St Pancras from 55 minutes, making the area an excellent location for those wishing to travel regularly to London for leisure or work purposes. Leicester and Peterborough are easily accessible via the A47, and the M1 and the M6 providing access to London and Birmingham.
The property is entered via the large Entrance Hall, parquet floored and boasting original character of the period. The Living Room is acceded directly from the hallway, with the parquet floor continuing – both rooms have a duel-aspect with windows to the front of the property and rear, overlooking the garden.
Accessed on the other side of the entrance hall is the second reception room, currently the Dining Room, with flagstone floor and log-burning stove.
The rear hallway gives way to the extended, oak-framed Kitchen, fitted with bespoke units, granite working surfaces and with a vaulted ceiling. There is a handy mezzanine level above – please see floorplan. French Doors open directly to the sheltered terrace, perfect for entertaining, and on to the South-facing rear garden.
A Shower Room, with handy Utility area completes the ground-floor accommodation.
The staircase rises from the Entrance Hall to the first-floor landing, giving way to three Double Bedrooms, all of which boast original character of the period. The Family Bathroom completes the first-floor accommodation.
To the rear of the property is a wonderfully private garden space, predominantly South facing. Double gates give way to off street parking and in turn, to the oak-framed garden studio – a vaulted ceilinged space that provides opportunity for a myriad of purposes.
The garden is predominantly laid to lawn, with a flagstone patio-area accessed immediately off the kitchen, providing a great alfresco entertaining space.
All main services are connected.
