Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The original farmhouse dates back some 300 years with part timber construction, wattle and daub walls and ceilings, this was added to with a barn conversion in the 1970's and upgraded in the mid 1990's.

The overall accommodation is extensive with some very generously proportioned rooms displaying many original features including beamed ceilings, open fireplace, and a mixture a different height ceilings throughout with a generous thickness of at least 0.5m walls around the property.

Many of the principle rooms enjoy an aspect over its west facing garden which backs onto surrounding gardens and open countryside beyond. The property is situated on the fringe of the village on the Blackfordby side of Moira and is well-placed for access to the local village facilities but also to the town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch and the A42/M42 links for Birmingham.

The property is approached via a shared driveway that serves four properties including Drift House, the property is situated to the left of this driveway where one goes onto an exclusive tarmac and concrete driveway with a detached granite stone garage. A wrought iron gate leads to the entrance porch and through a hard wood door into the entrance hall with flagstone floor and open staircase with wrought iron work believed to have come from a local brewery. Steps lead down into the reception lounge/drawing room with exposed timbers. Beyond this is a separate games room and conservatory with views over the mature gardens.

Off the hallway is the cloaks w.c and cloaks hanging area. To the right is the farmhouse style kitchen that has a range of distressed pine fitted cupboards with granite work surfaces, Franke bowl sink unit with chrome mixer tap, built in Britannia range, exposed beams and windows to both the front and rear elevations. The kitchen leads through to the formal dining room beyond which is a generous sized utility and behind this a boot room and further large cloaks area.

To the first floor there is an open galleried landing with wrought iron balustrade. Bedroom four has fitted wardrobes whist both this bedroom and bedroom three has exposed beams. The family bathroom has a white suite.

An inner landing gives access to the master bedroom with large walk-in separate dressing area with floor to ceiling height wardrobes and immediately opposite is a particularly generous and well-finished bathroom with pine stripped floor, exposed beams to the ceiling and five-piece Charlotte suite including a freestanding bath, wash hand basin, bidet, w.c with high level flush and separate corner shower cubicle. Bedroom two also benefits from a separate dressing area.

A ladder stairway leads up to the attic rooms which form two generous rooms (with no formal building regulations but have been used for the last 20 years). This could be regularised by approaching the local authority for the necessary consent but would involve the building of a relevant staircase, there is adequate space for this to take place.

The rear plot is a particular feature of the property enjoying a westerly facing aspect with the sun for a good part of the day, large central seating area with pergola frame enclosed by a brick retaining wall and decorative hedge and flows through to the main lawn. There are well-stocked herbaceous borders with a variety of specimen shrubs and trees, further path to the extreme right-hand boundary with pergolas having a variety of climbing plants and shrubs, further trellis work with honeysuckle behind which is a greenhouse. The right-hand boundary has a new 6ft enclosed fence and the garden enjoys immense privacy and has a great screen and backdrop of trees to the western boundary.

Tenure; Freehold (purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves as to the tenure via their legal representative).

Services; Mains water, electricity and gas are believed to be connected to the property. There is newly installed private drainage shared with one other property but purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves as to their suitability.
