Holly Bush Lodge, is a superb grade II listed Georgian property being the former gatehouse to Heather Hall. It occupies a wonderful rural position set in grounds extending to approximately 2 acres of formal gardens, paddock and woodland and is approached by a sweeping gravelled driveway to a large parking area with four bay garage and additional car standing.

The property enjoys an impressive external façade fronting onto Swepstone Road characterised by the projecting turrets and is extremely deceptive in its appearance having undergone a complete modernisation and extension programme by the current occupiers to the highest of standards providing a versatile and flexible interior in a unique split level design extending to over 2400 sq.ft of internal living space. The extension programme has been careful to reflect the integrity of the age of the building whilst carefully combining modern day living creating a unique lifestyle in this most accessible of locations.

Internally the property has been completely transformed and affords an efficient gas fired LPG central heating system supplemented by electric under floor heating.

A walk through this impressive family home will reveal an entrance vestibule which links the old building with the new extension perfectly and leads into a large breakfast kitchen with a comprehensive range of units. Further rooms include a dining room, home office/bedroom with en-suite shower room, bedroom/sitting room and completing the ground floor is an inner hallway providing access to the family bathroom, utility room and home cinema room.

From the entrance vestibule there are stairs leading down to the lower ground floor which has been skilfully extended providing two/three additional bedrooms, family lounge and luxury bathroom with three piece suite.

It is outside where you truly see the lifestyle experience of not only living within this wonderful split level property but combining this with the outdoor space of a wonderful neatly tended paddock. There is also a four bay garage with ample parking and turning area and a wooded copse with natural wildlife and specimen trees. The property is approached by secure electrically operated wrought iron gates onto a sweeping driveway and has been designed with outdoor entertaining in mind with a large sun terrace taking full advantage of the sunny rear aspect and views with BBQ area. There are also formal lawned gardens to three sides and the property is also a registered small holding ideal for those wishing to run a small business.

The property lies just outside the popular and most accessible village of Heather which enjoys a range of local amenities including a highly regarded village primary school, village pub and church with more comprehensive facilities available at both nearby Ibstock, Measham and Ashby de la Zouch town centres. Heather is also well-situated for ease of access to the M42 motorway network giving swift and easy access to the M1 and M6 leading to many East and West Midlands conurbations. There are major cities nearby at Tamworth, Birmingham, Nottingham, Derby and Leicester together with East Midlands and Birmingham International Airports and the scenic National Forest with walks and cycle paths.
