Tenure: Freehold

Situated in glorious open countryside just outside the highly desirable and well serviced village of East Leake, a rare opportunity to acquire a substantial five bedroom detached family home with oil fired central heating, sealed unit double glazing, situated within approximately 0.5 acres of gardens and grounds with outstanding uninterrupted open views to three sides over open countryside. Offering considerable potential, the property offers four reception rooms and a dining kitchen by Shortland Craft with a four oven Aga. Outside there is a large driveway, brick double garage with remote controlled doors and good sized gardens to front, side and rear.


East Leake is an extremely well serviced village to include leisure centre with swimming pool, three public houses, supermarket, post office, police station, fire station, play group, two primary schools, a variety of small shops, amateur theatre group and cricket, football, rugby and bowls clubs. The local East Leake Academy is exceptionally popular and attracts families to the village from all over the area. The village boasts an historic 11th century Church located in the centre of the village. East Leake is well serviced for easy access to Loughborough, Nottingham, Leicester, East Midlands Airport and the M1 motorway giving easy access to both north and south.


Proceeding out of East Leake on the Gotham Road, turn right at the roundabout into Lantern Lane. Following the lane past the East Leake Academy, the lane eventually becomes a bridleway and turning right onto the bridleway, follow the lane for approximately quarter of a mile, turning sharp left, the property then being found on the right hand side as identifiable by our for sale sign.

Agents Notes 
As the vendors of the barn conversation adjacent overlooks the front of the property, we would request that no further buildings are erected within the vicinity of the garage and whilst we understand that many buyers would wish to substantially extend the property, the current vendors may wish to approve plans to ensure that any extensions do not overlook their property.

Mains water and electricity are connected. Drainage is via a septic tank and central heating is provided by an oil fired central heating system.

Fixtures and Fittings 
All fitted carpets and curtains are included.

A particular feature of this property is its semi-rural location just outside the well serviced village of East Leake with the renowned East Leake Academy and other local facilities within walking distance. A public bridleway provides access at the end of Lantern Lane to the property which sits in open countryside along with one neighbouring property which has been constructed by the vendors for their own occupation. A sweeping driveway leads into the front to a large newly gravelled drive providing hardstanding for a large number of vehicles and leading in turn to an excellent brick double garage with remote controlled up and over doors with fitted light and power. The front garden is predominantly laid to lawn and enclosed by mature hedge, the gardens being extensive and extending to the side of the property to further lawn garden with a number of mature trees, once again enclosed by hedge.
