About this property

An exceptional, modern village home, constructed and presented to impeccable standards on a glorious plot approaching two and a half acres, in one of the County's most sought after village locations.

Hawthorns was individually designed by Messrs. Douglas Smith Architects and specified by the current owners utilising the finest materials available at the time. The centrally and double glazed accommodation is typified by beautifully proportioned rooms, high quality joinery and large windows taking best advantage of a southerly aspect to the rear over parkland style gardens.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and is entered via an entrance vestibule into a large reception hall with a fine staircase rising to the first floor. The reception hall provides access to cellarage, a guest cloakroom and three well-proportioned reception rooms all with fine views to the rear.

A breakfast kitchen has a random flagged limestone floor, an extensive range of oak storage and display cabinets including drawer and base cupboards, eye level store cabinets and leaded display cupboards, central island unit, twin oven oil-fired Aga with extractor hood over, integrated Neff appliances include a microwave oven and electric oven, Miele integrated dishwasher, integrated refrigerator and freezer. Off the kitchen is a superb sun room to enjoy the views of the gardens, and access to a large utility room with additional storage, plenty of white appliance space and gives access to the rear porch and WC. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a leisure room with a jacuzzi and sauna.

Stairs rise to the first floor with a spacious galleried landing which gives access to the first floor accommodation. The master bedroom has a window overlooking the rear garden and views beyond and wall to wall fitted wardrobes. A dressing area has an extensive range of full hanging mirrored wardrobes and leads to the ensuite bathroom. Bedroom two has a lovely dual aspect and an ensuite bathroom also. There are two further double bedrooms, and completing the accommodation is the principal bathroom with a four piece white suite and a corner shower enclosure.

Hawthorns provides excellent parking to the front and gives access to triple garaging designed with large cars in mind; hardwood double gates provide further secure parking for boats etc. and this easterly part of the garden is laid out with productive fruit trees, soft fruit canes, a coal store, aluminium greenhouse and a terraced kitchen garden. Garden equipment storage is well catered for within an integral secure tractor store with electric up and over doors and a detached timber shed.

The rear gardens are undoubtedly one of the principal features of the property; principally south in orientation with a large random flagged stone terrace, immaculate lawns with island shrub and herbaceous borders planted for year-round interest. A serpentine pathway leads to an upper terrace, heated swimming pool and a substantial summerhouse with electric power and light. Adjacent to this is a pump room providing additional storage and changing facilities. The gardens to the rear are laid out in a parkland setting with lawns, trees and a further timber store. The gardens border directly onto open fields with uninterrupted countryside views beyond. The total plot approaches approx. 2.41 acres.

Horninghold is a fascinating village and much sought after, primarily due to a Goddard designed model village. Homes are typically substantial stone properties constructed at the turn of the Century with Hawthorns being a later addition to the village, constructed in 1994. The village is situated in some of the County's most attractive countryside and provides easy access to the market towns of Oakham, Uppingham and Market Harborough, the latter providing mainline rail connections to London St. Pancras in little over an hour. There are popular public houses within nearby Hallaton, Great Easton and Medbourne with village stores catering for most day-to-day needs.

From Market Harborough, proceed eastbound via Rockingham Road, passing over the A6 roundabout onto the A427 towards Corby, turning immediately left as signposted to Uppingham. Pass through the villages of Sutton Bassett, Weston by Welland and just before Medbourne, turn left as signposted to Hallaton. On entering the village via Medbourne Road, turn right towards Horninghold where Hawthorns is the second to last property on the right hand side.
