Oakleigh House is a striking early Victorian detached family home of excellent proportions, extending to approx. 3000sq ft of internal space. It occupies an excellent plot and position extending to approx. 0.65 of an acre of mainly formal gardens.

Dating back to the mid-18th Century, the property was originally a working farm and still retains a substantial land holding. It affords a very versatile interior, retaining much of the period charm and integrity of the age whilst offering immense scope and potential to further improve and utilise the range of outbuildings into self-contained accommodation/home office etc.

The property benefits from gas fired central heating and sealed unit double glazing with distinctive sliding sash bay windows to the front elevation.

Internally, there is an entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor, three reception rooms, a breakfast kitchen, rear entrance hall, utility room and cloakroom/wc. On the first floor are four genuine double bedrooms including a large master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. It also has a study which would make an ideal walk-in dressing room. Completing the first floor accommodation is the fifth single bedroom and family bathroom. From the landing stairs rise to a second floor attic bedroom perfect for storage or as a children's play area.

Outside, the house is set back from Ashby Road behind a long driveway approach with screening gates. The driveway provides ample off-road parking for cars/caravans and provides access to the range of outbuildings including a double garage and workshop with storage loft over.

There are beautiful landscaped gardens to the front and side elevations which have been carefully tended and nurtured over the years by the current owners, creating a unique parkland setting with numerous flowering borders, annual and perennial plants, specimen trees and shrubs. At the front is a wonderful ornamental pond and seating area leading down to the lawn. At the rear there are numerous patio areas, a feature garden pond and shaped lawn. From here a path leads into a vegetable garden which has a substantial greenhouse.

The village of Moira is located within the heart of the National Forest, surrounded by scenic countryside, and is ideally situated within easy walking distance to Donisthorpe Country Park, Conkers and Moira Furnace Museum. It is also within walking distance of the Ashby Trail. The name "Moira" originated when Baron Rawdon, who also held the Irish title 'Earl of Moira', built the 'Stone Rows' (now demolished) for his workers. These were built in the Irish cottage tradition and became known as 'Moira Town' after his Irish estates.

Please note: The property has been extended which has not been updated on the site plan.
