Full description

We are delighted to offer to the market this Grade II listed farmhouse which is situated in the heart of the picturesque Leicestershire village of Willoughby Waterleys. The property offers spacious family living accommodation over two floors, along with a substantial range of outbuildings which could have numerous different uses. The property is also sold with a pony paddock in the region of 2.64 acres, so is ideal for any buyer with an equestrian interest.

Location - Willoughby Waterleys is a small picturesque village in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside, approximately 8 miles south of the city of Leicester. The village enjoys good community spirit and hosts a number of social events, based around the village hall, the local public house, and St. Mary’s Church which dates back to Norman times. The village is well positioned for the commuter, with excellent road and rail links to the north and south. It is also in the catchment area for a number of state and independent schools, including Leicester Grammar School, Leicester High School for Girls, and Beauchamp College.

Ground Floor - The property is accessed via an impressive oak front door which opens onto the main hallway with original tiled flooring. A staircase rises to the first floor and there is access to the cellar. Off the hallway are three separate reception rooms - a lounge, a sitting room, and a large impressive dining room, all having open fireplaces and exposed ceiling beams. Double doors lead from the dining room through to the garden room which overlooks the side garden and has French doors to the outside. There is a large farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room which has a range of solid oak units with granite worktops. There is a large walk-in pantry and a range cooker set within an attractive chimney recess. Off the kitchen is a good sized utility room with further storage cupboards and access to a downstairs WC. A rear door opens into a storm porch/lobby with a further door leading to the rear courtyard.

First Floor - This floor offers four generous double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom is a lovely room overlooking the yew trees to the front of the property. It has exposed wall and floor timbers and benefits from an en-suite shower room. Bedroom two has a range of built-in wardrobes and a vanity unit with sink. Bedrooms three and four both have feature fireplaces. The family bathroom has a bath and separate shower enclosure.

Outside - Pedestrian access to the front of the property leads to walled gardens to the front and side which have a number of established shrubs and plants and, of course, the yew trees. To the rear of the property is a sizeable courtyard which is accessed via an electronically operated gate beneath a red brick archway. The courtyard offers off-road parking for numerous vehicles and gives access to a boiler room, a self-contained office, a double garage, and a variety of outbuildings which could have numerous uses. To the rear of the outbuildings is a further lawned garden area with mature trees, shrubs, and a summerhouse. A 2.64 acre paddock to the west of the property makes Yew Tree Farmhouse an ideal property for anyone with an equestrian interest.
