Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This Grade II listed detached property was the subject of a thorough restoration programme by the previous owners over nearly 25 years. Offering immaculately presented and versatile accommodation, the property has a wealth of original features including wall beams and heavily beamed ceilings which are complemented where appropriate with replacement doors and sliding York sash windows etc. A particular feature of the property are the delightful gardens which have been landscaped and feature a large walled swimming pool area with a sophisticated heated swimming pool with changing rooms, kitchen and sauna off. Situated on this quiet narrow lane, the cottage enjoys an elevated position ensuring privacy and an abundance of natural light.

Location

Hathern is an extremely well serviced and popular village offering a range of typical village facilities including a post office/general store, primary school, popular pubs, library and petrol station. The village is ideally located just off the A6 which affords fast access for excellent local shopping and schooling at near-by Loughborough and East Midlands airport and M1/M42 at Kegworth. The conservation area of the village is particularly unspoilt and Hathern is one of the few villages where the main road by-passes the village rather than going through the centre.

Directions

From Loughborough town centre take the A6 Derby Road out to Hathern. Proceeding through the main set of traffic lights turn eventually right into Wide Lane where the property can then be found on the right hand side.
