About this property

A spectacular and impressive modern village home, remodelled, renovated and considerably extended throughout to an impeccable standard, set in the outskirts of this small rural village on an excellent plot of approximately 0.38 of an acre.

The Acorns is a spacious family home with accommodation laid out over two floors, remodelled, renovated and considerably extended with a double storey and single rear extension using high quality materials throughout. It is double glazed using sash windows, oil-fired centrally heated and is entered in to a fabulous reception hall with a superb galleried central staircase rising to the first floor. Tucked under the stairs is a handy guest cloakroom.

A principal feature of the property is the open plan living dining kitchen with bi-fold door to the rear garden. The contemporary but traditional design boasts ample storage under Quartz work surfaces with matching splashbacks in Carrara marble, a double Belfast sink, space for a range type cooker, space and plumbing for an American fridge freezer and an integrated dishwasher. An large island unit creates an extra seating area for casual dining and provides additional storage and food preparation surfaces. This room is light and airy by virtue of two windows, three Velux roof lights and bi-fold doors. Off the kitchen is a utility room providing additional storage and space and plumbing for white goods, and a separate walk in pantry.

A sitting room has two windows to the front elevation and a feature fireplace with an open fire and an Italian Carrara marble surround creating a wonderful focal point. The dining room also has two windows to the front elevation and an original grey marble 19th century fireplace.

Completing the ground floor accommodation is a gym/bedroom four with bi-fold doors to the rear terrace and an ensuite shower room off with a spa rainfall shower.

Stairs rise to the first floor galleried landing which provide access to the bedroom accommodation. The impressive master bedroom suite dominates the rear half of the first floor. The bedroom area is spacious and has bifold doors to a balcony overlooking the rear garden and views beyond. To the left is a substantial dressing room, with the potential to create an additional bedroom, which again has views to the rear, and to the right is a vanity area with space for a dressing table and a breakfast kitchen with built in cupboards offering storage, fridge freezer, a handy sink and worktop space. Beyond this is a large ensuite bathroom with slipper bath, large walk in shower cubicle and his and hers sinks into vanity units with storage.

There are two further double bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room and built in wardrobe. Completing the accommodation is the family bathroom with four piece suite to include a slipper bath.

To the front of the property is a driveway providing ample off road parking. There is, if required, a base already laid for a garage. To the rear is an extensive gravelled entertaining area immediately abutting the rear of the property. Steps lead up to a large lawn with attractive mature planted borders.

Illston On The Hill is a small village and parish lying seven miles north of Market Harborough. The village has a strong sense of community with a strong farming heritage and a population in the 2011 Census at 179. The main road into the village is a dead end creating a relatively traffic free environment. The village has a small public house, popular with the villagers' and a parish church. A wider range of amenities can be found in the nearby village of Billesdon which includes a village store, dr's surgery, post office and a school. Market Harborough to the south provides a wider range of facilities catering for all day to day needs, with independent shops and a mainline rail station giving access to London St. Pancras in around an hour.
