Property description

A charming cottage set in 5 acres of grounds with two large paddocks and a collection of stables. The land is currently in use as a personal smallholding and would also be perfect for small equestrian use.

General Description - A superb, renovated stone and brick cottage set in grounds extending to 5 acres with a smallholding setup on the edge of the revered Charnwood Forest. The property has been sympathetically and expertly extended and renovated and now provides circa 2,250 sq ft of internal living accommodation.

Outside, are landscaped gardens, a gated driveway and double garage/workshop. Across the driveway is a yard setup with a collection of block and timber stables, haystore and smaller outbuildings. There are two large paddocks that are currently used in rotation as a personal smallholding, and a delightful large pond. The land would also be perfect for small equine use.

Location - Hobby Hall is situated between the market towns of Loughborough and Leicester. There are excellent local transport links via the M1 motorway and wider network, and a full array of excellent amenities in the nearby towns.

There is also a wide selection of excellent local schooling choices, both state and independent. The property occupies a position on the edge of the local revered Charnwood Forest with its beautiful, varied countryside and available walks.

Hobby Hall - Internally, the property offers circa 2,250 sq ft of delightfully presented living space laid across two floors. The joinery is mainly in solid Oak and finished to a particularly high standard including double glazed windows throughout.

Upstairs are three generous double bedrooms, a four-piece family bathroom and contemporary shower room.

The living areas are laid around the entrance hall with w.c, with a light filled drawing room, large original reception room currently used as a games room and snug, and a study. The kitchen is set to the rear of the house and is fitted in a shaker style with large dining area and boot room off. There is direct access to both a private courtyard and the formal gardens to either side.

Gardens And Grounds - The property has a wealth of outside space including gated parking, a private hard landscaped courtyard and lawned formal gardens. Across the drive are 5 acres of paddocks with a collection of block and timber outbuildings. The paddocks have a water supply, and there is a delightful pond to the bottom corner. The site would make an excellent private smallholding or small equine setup.

There is a covenant against commercial use of the land for anything other than agricultural purposes.
