About this property

This three-storey, two bedroom maisonette, forming part of a stunning chapel conversion by Messrs Chase Living Ltd and styled by LRW Interior Designs in 2009, is discreetly set back enjoying a tucked away spot close to the heart of Great Bowden, one of Leicestershire's most sought after villages. A perfect lock up and leave home for commuters, downsizers and investors alike.

Discreetly tucked away from the road, you will see the allocated parking in the covered garage, as you walk through the arch towards the secure entrance hall at the side. Stepping through the front door into the apartment you will notice the ceiling height which adds to the sense of space throughout. A handy utility cupboard provides space for laundry facilities as well as boots and shoes, while the hall allows for bookcases or further pantry storage.

The kitchen to the right is flooded with natural light through the large chapel window. High gloss wall and base units provide storage and integrated appliances include a ceramic induction hob and Baumatic combination microwave oven.

The sitting room, which is currently used as a clinic/treatment room, offers space and character. Exposed brick flanks the door which leads on to the west-facing, timber-decked courtyard, while a large chapel window to the side allows for plenty of natural light.

Upstairs you will find a large, high ceiling master bedroom with an ornate exposed beam. The ensuite shower room is tucked away in the corner, with a fully tiled shower cubicle, large wash hand basin with vanity unit under and a WC. Across the landing is the main bathroom with feature beam, plenty of storage and a contemporary, crisp white suite comprising a p-shaped bath with rain shower over, wash hand basin set within vanity unit and a WC.

Stairs up from the landing leads to the second floor bedroom, ideal for use as a study or home office. The vaulted ceiling and exposed beams add to the abundance of character and charm throughout this home.

A west-facing timber decked courtyard terrace offers the perfect spot to make the most of the afternoon and evening sun. Enclosed by fencing, there is gated access to the lane beyond with next door having a pedestrian right of way to and from their courtyard. The apartment comes with an allocated parking space which is within the covered parking garage and accessed via a drive to the side.

The property is a 'Commonhold'. Each of the four proprietors within the conversion is a director of the resident's management company which owns the Freehold. There is no yearly Ground Rent - just a yearly Service/Maintenance charge (currently £257.40) which goes into a slush fund for repairs.

Great Bowden is one of the most highly sought-after villages within the county both by virtue of the quality housing stock and strong community spirit, good local amenities include a parish church, post office, village store and primary school. The nearby town of Market Harborough provides a wide range of shopping, leisure, education and recreational facilities with a mainline train service within convenient walking distance, giving access to London St. Pancras in under an hour. Schooling is well catered for in both the state and private sector. Of particular note are Uppingham School, Oakham School, Stoneygate School, Leicester Grammar the latter two both being in Great Glen.

Proceed out of Market Harborough via Burnmill Road. Upon entering the village of Great Bowden turn right at the T-junction into Main Street. Go over the railway bridge and the property can be found on the left-hand side.
