About this property

This delightful one bedroom mews cottage, set within the grounds of a converted 18th Georgian residence could be the perfect bolthole or lock up and leave. An exclusive gated community with communal grounds, countryside views, 15 acre shared paddock and direct access to canal towpath, just a stone's throw from Market Harborough town, mainline rail and Great Bowden village.

ACCOMMODATION
Take in the architectural splendour of Great Bowden Hall, a mid-18th century Georgian country residence, and the attractive formal grounds, as you sweep through the electric gates and round the driveway to this exclusive gated community.

Step through the glazed front door into an inviting hall where you will spot the handy guest cloakroom. You will notice the height of the ceiling as you come through to the open plan living accommodation, which, along with the natural light flooding through the large bay window, adds to this sense of space in this unique home. Fitted benches flank the bay window providing storage space and the perfect spot to while away the hours gazing out on to the communal gardens and paddock beyond. Open archways lead to the dining room (which could serve as a home office) and kitchen. Both have skylights allowing for further natural light. There is plenty of storage to the fitted units which also include an integrated fridge/freezer, oven, gas hob and space for a washing machine.

The staircase leads up to the large bedroom which enjoys a dual aspect providing views over the communal gardens and shared paddock to one side and open countryside views towards Thorpe Langton and Sutton Bassett to the other side. A fitted double wardrobe provides handy storage, with room for bedroom furniture or desk space to work from home. The ensuite bathroom is fitted with a white suite comprising bath with shower over, pedestal wash hand basin and WC.

OUTSIDE

TENURE
