Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A modern five bedroom barn conversion sat within a mature plot of one acre, offering a wealth of original
features and deceptively spacious living accommodation.


The historic market town of Ashby de la Zouch is a charming, bustling town within the National Forest and enjoys an excellent choice of local amenities, with notable attractions and sporting facilities within. There are a selection of good quality primary and secondary schools within the area, in addition to The Manor House independent school. The town is convenient for commuters, with the nearby A42, A511 Ashby Road and A444 Acresford Road providing quick access across the region
and to other arterial routes such as the M1. Nearby Loughborough, East Midlands Parkway and Birmingham railway stations offer a fast train network to London.


Situated at the head of a private road, The Byre enjoys a secluded position, sat within a delightful, one acre plot with open views to the rear. Boasting nearly 3000sq. ft, the property presents deceptively spacious, split level accommodation, retaining many period features, a number of
reception rooms, five double bedrooms, well-manicured gardens and a separate 0.3 acre paddock.

The main entrance door to the south elevation gives way to the internal porch, providing cloak hanging with a tiled floor and fully glazed partition, leading onto the main hallway with a vaulted ceiling and velux windows. Located to the south elevation, the charming sitting room offers a pleasant outlook, featuring exposed timber beams, a brick built fire place with gas fire and a set of French doors out to the terrace. Adjacent to the sitting room is the well proportioned dining room, again
with exposed beams, allowing entry to the kitchen.

The stunning dual aspect kitchen diner provides an excellent family space, incorporating a range of maple solid wood base and wall units with a breakfast bar, attractive Aga cooker, silestone work surfaces and integrated appliances to include a separate fridge freezer unit and Neff dishwasher. There is ample space within the dining area to hold more casual seating, with the utility room off, affording additional fitted units, a ceramic hob, Neff microwave combination oven, a secondary sink and access to the loft via the drop down ladder. There are two lower level W.C’s, with the study, accessible off the hallway completing the extent of the living accommodation.

The upper level to the west aspect occupies the garden facing bedroom accommodation, comprising the spacious, dual aspect master bedroom with contemporary en suite shower room including an anthracite towel radiator, back lit vanity mirror, W.C and mains shower with glass screen. There is an additional en suite bedroom to the opposite elevation with a corner shower. The middle bedrooms are all of an appropriate size to hold double beds, with bedroom four featuring fitted wardrobes and bedroom two offering an en suite W.C and built in wardrobe. The opposite side of the hallway retains the main three piece family bathroom with sloping ceiling and Velux window.

Burton Road provides entry to the private lane leading through to the small cluster of properties in which The Byre sits. The property is accessed through double gates, onto the gravelled drive, whilst the double garage with electric doors, power and lighting allows dry vehicle storage, in addition to a separate, half garage storage unit. The attractive, immaculately maintained gardens cloak the south and west elevations and are predominantly laid to lawn, bounded by mature shrubbery with a number of pleasant bedding areas and a feature pond.

Adjacent to the garden there is a paddock area of 0.3 acres,
an ideal parcel of land for buyers intending to keep small livestock, although would allow a range of uses. No planning
opportunities have been explored on this plot of land, however
it may suit an additional dwelling subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.


Mains electricity, gas fired central heating
and water supply are understood to be connected to the
property. Drainage and sewerage drains to a septic tank.

Strictly by appointment with Savills.

Square Footage: 3,172 sq ft
