About this property

Homelands is a remarkable edge of VILLAGE HOME home with FAR REACHING VIEWS over its own paddock and east Leicestershire countryside beyond.

Over recent years the unique property has undergone a complete transformation and upgrade, providing prospective purchasers with a turn-key home with the ability to extend and improve even further.
Detailed planning consent has been granted for a significant rear and first floor extension to create a very substantial and prestigious home.

The accommodation, which is gas centrally heated and uPVC triple glazed, boasts large rooms throughout. It is entered through a storm porch which leads to a hallway and then into a magnificent refitted open plan dining kitchen. Featuring a variety of quality base, wall, display and drawer units with polished granite work surfaces, a picture window overlooks the garden, terrace, pond, swimming pool and views beyond. Appliances include integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer and a Hi-LITE Rangemaster gas cooker with matching extractor hood above.

The extensive utility/boot room, upgraded at the same time, also features an abundance of storage units with space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer, a door and window open to a secure courtyard and providing access to the carport beyond

The two principle reception rooms, both with bi-folding doors, have been remodelled to take best advantage of the open aspect and uninterrupted countryside views and are linked together via double oak doors, a feature that has been used throughout. The upper sun lounge overlooks the pool, the sitting room is a noteworthy feature with high ceilings, unique display unit and views across the garden and beyond. The bedroom accommodation comprises a master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, double aspect windows and a luxurious wet room with underfloor heating, high quality ceramic tiling and a five piece suite.
There are two further double bedrooms and a second refitted modern family bathroom.

A large return driveway provides ample car standing space and access to the carport and garage on one side of the property. On the other side, superb wooden sliding gates give access to the secure area which houses a substantial 720sq ft modern Barn, beyond which is direct access to the paddock area. The garden, with far-reaching views, has a lawned area, extensive planted borders, a Mediterranean terrace, delightful water feature and swimming pool. A detached high quality twin cabin with decking area currently provides a studio annex/home office, but is suitable for a variety of uses
