The village of Stoke Albany lies on the borders of Northamptonshire and Leicestershire and offers a public house with restaurant and a children’s playground, whilst the nearby village of Wilbarston provides further amenities including a post office, shop and school. Communications in the area are excellent, particularly the market town of Market Harborough which is in easy reach and has an array of shopping facilities, whilst the city of Leicester lying to the north provides a more extensive range of commercial, shopping and accommodation options. The A14 dual carriageway, set some 5 miles to the south, provides road access both east and west, while the A47 trunk road to the north connects the cities of Leicester and Peterborough. A main line rail service is available from both Market Harborough and Kettering and both connect with London St Pancras in approximately one hour. Recreational facilities in the area are excellent with Rutland Water set to the north between Uppingham and Oakham, providing sailing and fishing with scenic walks and the Rutland Water cycle route.

Education options nearby are renowned, with primary schooling available in Wilbarston, preparatory available at Spratton Hall, Maidwell and Stoneygate and secondary at Oakham, Uppingham, Oundle and Leicester Grammar.

The Property
The Laurels is a beautifully maintained country house, extended to create a spacious family home set back from the village green and surrounded by superb gardens. The ground floor accommodation spans off a central hall with exposed ceiling beams, providing access to the reception rooms as well as the kitchen. The study has a logburner and the benefit of a French door offering access out onto the south-facing terrace, whilst the play room is particularly light with windows on two elevations. The large drawing room with exposed beam and impressive inglenook fireplace creates an inviting and relaxing space.

The kitchen, which is of an excellent size, has ample room for a dining table and has a comprehensive range of bespoke floor and wall mounted units. A doorway leads through to the timber framed dining room, with double doors opening out onto the terrace and making an ideal entertaining space. A useful boot room, utility room, shower room and cloakroom completes the accommodation on the ground floor, providing access to the side of the property where the triple bay garage and workshop can be found.

To the first floor are four bedrooms, comprising a spacious principal suite with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom, with three further bedrooms and a generous family bathroom. In addition to the main house, The Laurels has the benefit of a large cottage, which has been extensively refurbished by the present owners, with a spacious ground floor room which lends itself to an ideal gym or games room, and on the first and second floor are three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an open-plan kitchen/living area.

The Laurels is approached via a gravel driveway, which leads round to the garaging and cottage. There is a secondary drive from Lower Road, passing the cottage and continuing to the stable yard and paddock. The gardens, contained by lovely stone walls, are extensive and include a sunny south-facing terrace perfectly positioned to provide views over the gardens and a walled garden with a variety of mature shrubs and perennials. Reached via stone steps is a pretty gazebo with a wisteria, with pathways leading to three other charming gardens. Of particular note is a stunning wildflower garden with a variety of native, ornamental and productive fruit trees.
