Property description

Tenure: Freehold


A fine Grade II Listed period detached former farmhouse located in the heart of this highly regarded Leicestershire village within close proximity Loughborough's amenities, regarded schools and train station. The farmhouse was comprehensively refurnished to the highest of standards just over 8 years ago to provide a substantial family home set across three floors. The refurbishment was sympathetically conducted retaining many of its original features and character yet combining this with modern and contemporary fittings. On the ground floor the commanding reception hallway leads to six reception rooms, a hand crafted kitchen with central island, utility room, boiler room and boot room. A modern extension to the rear provides for a home office and fabulous garden/entertaining room with further rear kitchen and barbecue area situated off which flows into the garden. On the first floor are four double bedrooms with the master bedroom enjoying a walk through dressing room and luxury en-suite bathroom. A further bedroom also benefits from an en-suite and there is a large family bathroom. On the second floor is the fifth bedroom/guest suite with dressing area, bedroom and further en-suite shower room. Externally there is a larger than average double garage with electric door, gravel drive situated in front and a further gated gravel drive beyond the garage and beautifully landscaped and private gardens consisting of a raised large timber deck with sunken hot tub and a formal lawned garden and patio. The property is offered to the market with no chain and we would strongly advise an early viewing to appreciate the superb village position and size of the accommodation.


Stanford on Soar is a small hamlet which nestles approximately two miles to the north of Loughborough town centre and enjoys a local Parish Church and all of Loughborough's excellent local amenities contained therein can be accessed both quickly and easily including shops catering for day to day needs, schools of all grades including Loughborough's renowned endowed schools, recreational amenities, centres of employment and frequent public transport services.
