Description

As the oak gate glides open to reveal the sweeping gravel driveway to this impressive and very private red-brick family home, you will be struck by the extensive grounds that encompass this beautiful property. From the inviting entrance hall, this immaculately presented home welcomes you into a spacious, light-filled drawing room, complete with feature windows, stone flooring and access to the unrivalled grounds. A second, adjoining reception room, bathed in natural light, offers equally superior living space with an attractive fireplace complete with wood-burning stove and log display – perfect for cosying up on those winter nights. This room benefits from solid oak wooden flooring and French doors opening onto the outstanding garden. Sliding doors open into a light and airy home study complete with high-speed internet. From here there is access to the paved seating terrace with ornamental pond – positioned favourably to unwind during those morning coffee breaks. Between the drawing room and sun room, a contemporary white stone staircase rises to the fabulous first-floor accommodation and a hallway flows through to another one of the many social hubs in this home.

The open-plan kitchen/diner and living zone offers abundant space for food preparation, ample room for entertaining at least 10-12 guests around the dining table and an area for lounge furniture for those after-dinner drinks. Focus lighting, a harmonious mix of wooden and stone tiled flooring and exposed brickwork create the perfect ambiance in this stylish room where a wealth of Shaker-style cabinets, an Aga alongside modern appliances are on offer.

SELLER INSIGHT

“The house has the most beautiful proportions and it’s been designed and built to such an incredibly high standard, full of light and space and a layout that’s wonderfully conducive to modern family living and this is what attracted us to it when we found it six years ago. The fabulous gardens and paddock alongside the beautiful river are a huge bonus too!

The house was in great condition when we moved in but we have continued to make some great improvements. Internally the biggest change has been creating the space which now incorporates the substantial open plan kitchen, pantry and gym. This has transformed how we use the house, with our lives now centred in this area.  Externally there have been some big changes too, with addition of the oak frame garages as well as the newly positioned driveway entrance. The addition of the electric gate has really added to our security and privacy.

As a family the location has been perfect us, having the highly regarding Twycross House and Dixie Grammar schools very nearby. The surrounding villages and town of Market Bosworth have an outstanding choice of good pubs and places to eat which we’ve made good use of!

We’ll miss everything. The space within the house, the beautiful garden, this wonderful setting. For us it’s been a very happy home.”
