Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An extremely rare Edwardian property located in open countryside on the edge of leafy Charnwood. This four bedroom family home built in 1911 is now available on the open market for the very first time in its long history. Standing in just under an acre and surrounded by rolling countryside the property offers considerable potential and therefore early viewing is strongly recommended. The property offers accommodation to include an original tiled entrance hall, two reception rooms and a modern fitted kitchen with walk-in pantry. A ground floor bedroom and bathroom offer versatility and on the first floor are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The property is set well back from the road behind a sweeping in/out driveway and there is also a double garage.


St. Catherine Villa is located within open countryside, close to Mount St. Bernard Abbey in North West Leicestershire. The property is located on the Whitwick/Charley border approximately 1 mile from the village centre which offers an impressive range of facilities and the area provides schooling of all grades. The location allows for easy access onto the M1 and A42 and there is a mainline rail service to London St Pancras available at Loughborough (7.4 miles) and East Midlands Parkway (12.7 miles)

There is space in the kitchen for an electric range style cooker with extractor hood over and there is plumbing for an American style fridge/freezer.

Gates provide pedestrian access to both sides of the property. A drystone wall forms all boundaries and there are many large trees with boundaries these are not thought to subject to tree preservation orders (TPO).

A five bar gate allows vehicular access onto the paddock and close to the rear boundary is a Harlow field shelter. A semi-derelict brick outbuilding believed to have been built as a pigsty, dovecote and store requires attention.
