The Willowsic, meant to mean a 'thicket of willow trees', combines a fabulously presented five bedroom period house; a separate annexe cottage; numerous outbuildings and land that is split into two with a paddock and a field, separated by a post and rail fence with a five-bar gate.
The three-story Georgian building is of brick elevations under a Swithland slate roof, believed to have been built in 1790 with a substantial addition to the back of the house around 1935. The stable block is believed to have been built earlier.
Although situated in the centre of the village, the house stands down a secluded drive facing open country. During the 1930s the Hunt used to meet on the cobbled yard,
which then existed to the front of the house. Adjacent to the main house stands the oldest tree in the village, a huge oak, recently dated to be around 240 years old.
The single story stone and brick elevation self-contained cottage has been converted from a former stable block into a one bedroom annexe. It is believed that the Ironstone, which comprises three walls of the building, came from the leftover stone used to build the church.
