SITUATION

Home Farm sits at the heart of the much sought after conservation village of Church Langton, which itself sits in an elevated position amongst prime Leicestershire countryside. The village has a well-regarded Primary School, an active community hall and a pub which is currently undergoing refurbishment. The war memorial and St Peter’s Church provide an attractive backdrop to the approach to Home Farm.

Nearby Market Harborough offers a wider range of retail and cultural services and the mainline train service to London St Pancras is expected to drop in time even further from the current time of around an hour, with the planned improvements to the Mainline Midlands Line. There is excellent access to the Midlands road network with the A47, A14, M1, M69 and M6 within easy reach, as are airports at East Midlands, Birmingham, Stansted and Luton.

There is a fabulous choice of schooling locally including Leicester Grammar School at Great Glen, the High School for Girls in Leicester and public schools at Uppingham and Oakham and preparatory schools at Stoneygate, Maidwell Hall and Spratton Hall.

There is a wealth of sporting and recreational activity locally with Rutland Water, Pitsford and Eyebrook offering water sports and several good local golf courses including Kibworth and Market Harborough.

THE PROPERTY

Home Farm is Grade II Listed and dates from the early 17th century and one of the date stones bears the date 1659. Built of brick with a Swithland slate roof, the house was extended in the 20th century and has been updated by the current owners providing excellent and well-balanced family space.

Approached by an extensive driveway, with lawn to either side, it terminates in a generous gravelled parking area to the north of the house. This provides quick access to the back door which opens onto a breakfast kitchen with oak flooring and original beams and a Belfast sink with draining board. The kitchen runs to the north in an adjacent alcove and has a four oven Aga, shaker style units with a mixture of granite and wooden work surfaces and a central island. The utility room, which houses the boiler, runs off the breakfast room and this has a door which opens onto the rear courtyard.

To the south side of the kitchen, a door opens onto the rear hall and an immediate left turn will take you to the reception hall and front door. To the north of this is the dining room and a family room and, to the south, a drawing room, study and cloakroom with the main staircase and a cellar which lies underneath the study. The main stairs lead up to the principal bedroom which has fitted cupboards and an en suite bathroom. There are a further four double bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Immediately to the west of the utility room, and with a separate external entrance is a home office. On the ground floor is a kitchenette and stairs lead up to a substantial office and a bathroom. Beyond this are two storerooms, used as a wood store and garden store, and two stables. The run of outbuildings continues with a large barn with sliding doors with steps to a further storage area and a three bay carport, one bay of which has a secure room used as storage for the three self-contained cottages, each of which has a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom and a private communal garden area.

OUTSIDE

The gardens on the approach to the house are mainly laid to lawn with a stone-wall and wooden estate fencing forming the perimeter. There are deep herbaceous borders with strategic plantings of shrubs and trees to provide a high level of privacy. The courtyard garden to the south-west of the house is again set to lawn with a paved and Yorkstone terrace area immediately adjacent to the house which offers an excellent sheltered and private al fresco dining area. Additionally, there is a pergola and further seating area.
