Full description

LANGLEY HAVEN: In 2011 this deceptively spacious family home was greatly extended, and beautifully redesigned by renowned local architect, David Grainger. Nestled in a tranquil setting within a popular hamlet, this lovely three doubled bedroomed home benefits from three stylish modern en suites and a large bespoke breakfast kitchen boasting a range of hand-made units and granite worktops. The property is presented in immaculate decorative order throughout and the rooms are well-proportioned, offering plenty of space for a growing family. There's a larger-than-average detached single garage with loft storage, and a delightful, professionally landscaped, south-facing tiered rear garden enjoying an open aspect and a covered alfresco dining area. Take a look inside and you'll find, on the ground floor: an impressive entrance dining hall with oak flooring, oak-veneer doors, a feature oak-spindled staircase and lofty views up to the galleried walkway above; a 6.58 metre (21ft) spacious lounge with a designer corner log burner, a garden room/family room, an office/study, guest cloakroom/w.c., a 7.67 metre (25 ft) long breakfast kitchen with bi-fold doors opening out into the rear garden, and an adjoining utility room. On the first floor: a good-sized master bedroom with a Juliet balcony overlooking the rear garden, and an en suite bathroom; and a generous double third bedroom having a stylish en suite shower room. We anticipate a great deal of interest in this prestigious, detached family home, and recommend early viewing to avoid disappointment.

The Location - The small hamlet of Tonge lies a short distance from Breedon-on-the-Hill, and mid-way between Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Melbourne, and just off the main A453 road to Castle Donington. ASHBY: The ancient, historic market town of Ashby (with its famous 15th century castle) almost certainly dates back to Roman times. Later, in the early 19th century, it became a spa town. Many of the Georgian style buildings that you now see were built to accommodate visitors to the Baths. Today, Ashby de la Zouch is a thriving and bustling town within the National Forest and enjoys a wide range of good shops, schools, pubs, churches and local amenities. The nearby M42 motorway gives easy access to the M1, M5 and M6 and many other Midland towns and cities. MELBOURNE (the name means 'mill on the brook' or 'a mill stream') is a small attractive Georgian market town in a delightful part of South Derbyshire, set in rolling countryside. The town contains a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants and there are several good schools in the area. The property has good access to the A50, the M1 and M42 motorways, making it within easy reach of many Midland towns and cities. The towns are also convenient for the Nottingham East Midlands airport.
