Situated on an elevated position, the views over Thornton Reservoir can be admired not only from the garden but from a stunning full width curved bay with a substantial balcony over which is accessed from the master bedroom suite. The grounds extend to approximately 1.5 acres and consists of lawned gardens, entertaining areas and a paddock. There is some high quality detached stabling and equipment shed which further add to the appeal.

Location - Thornton has a thriving village community and is situated in the north west of the county, renowned for its many scenic walks, countryside and views. Waters Edge as the name suggests overlooks the reservoir and stunning scenery beyond. The village offers two public houses, parish church, an excellent range of amenities catering for most day to day needs at Markfield, major urban centres at Loughborough and Leicester. There are very good motorway links at junction 23 of the M1 and the East Midlands Airport at Castle Donnington. The area is particularly well served by popular schooling in both the state and private sector.

Accommodation - The existing accommodation has been presented to immaculate standards throughout with high quality joinery in oak and extends to approximately 3000 Sq. Ft.

Ft if further accommodation for a sitting room, home cinema, gymnasium etc. If required.

One of the main features of the property, is that on entering the front door a tremendous view through the open plan living room and kitchen can be seen through the huge bay window over the grounds towards the reservoir. The accommodation is arranged off this main space with a sitting room, study, cloakroom and second kitchen/utility room completing the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor is an impressive landing, superb master bedroom leading to the balcony, en-suite shower room and dressing room/bedroom five, there are three further bedrooms and three bathrooms all finished immaculately.

Outside - A driveway provides car standing space and access to garaging for four cars. A driveway to the side provides a route for machinery and additional parking. An impressive feature of this property is the extensive terraces and entertaining areas cleverly lit and by virtue of the elevated position provides splendid views.
