* PERIOD FARMHOUSE NESTLED IN A SUPERB VILLAGE LOCATION * Believed to date back almost three hundred years, this character detached farmhouse occupies an enviable corner plot within the village and boasts ample off-road parking, a two-storey workshop, and deceptively spacious family accommodation. A look inside reveals: a beamed lounge and separate dining room, kitchen, conservatory, utility room, office, cellar/games room, four bedrooms (the master with en suite) and a bathroom.

The Location - OAKTHORPE, near to the bustling market town of Ashby de la Zouch, and a short distance from Measham, is an ever increasingly popular village, with easy access to the M42 motorway and onwards to major cities including Nottingham, Derby, Leicester, Coventry and Birmingham. The East Midlands airport is a 25-30 minutes drive away. For recreation and country walks, the nearby National Forest visitors' centre at Moira is well worth a visit.
