The views from this room are truly stunning and uninterrupted over the Leicestershire countryside.

Leading on from the sitting room is the garden room, again with the wonderful views, and doors out to the garden. The dining room leads off from the garden room and circles back to the hallway. Opposite is the kitchen with utility room / pantry. The kitchen has a range of oak fronted cupboards and melamine worksurfaces, with a Rangemaster electric stove. Leading off from the kitchen is a conservatory, large enough for seperate dining and seating areas, with doors out to the swimming pool and garden, and 180 degree views over your garden, paddock and the Leicestershire countryside.

From the other end of the kitchen, you enter a small lobby area, with doors to both the front and back of the property, and then through into a study, and then the family room with double doors to the pool area.

The area is well known for many scenic walks and countryside, with an abundance of bridal ways and footpaths. Frisby itself is a tiny rural hamlet between Gaulby and Billesdon, the latter providing a wide range of amenities including a primary school, GPs surgery, public houses, post office, village store and active community centre. This area is very well served by the market towns of Uppingham, Oakham and Market Harborough, with Leicester city centre just ten miles to the east with amenities normally associated with a large city centre.

Outside the gravelled driveway provides generous parking for several vehicles and gives access to a four car garage.

The gardens are undoubtedly a prime feature of this property and border directly onto fields separated by a ha-ha. With a shaped lawned area with shrub and herbaceous borders, mature specimen trees and feature beds providing year round interest.

Strategically placed seating areas with a pergola and other terraces provide spectacular views as does the enclosed walled swimming pool area with a detached summer house with a changing room/ pump room adjacent.
