About this property

This handsome Victorian country home set within approx. 2.21 acres and perched on the edge of Thorpe
Langton offers you the best of both worlds with peaceful and protected panoramic countryside views within a few minutes' drive from Harborough town centre and rail station.

Fine, period country living awaits the moment you step in through the door into the hall, yet a glimpse to your left into the kitchen offers a taste of 21st century living. To the right of the hall is the formal dining room, a rich and warm room ideal for entertaining in style which opens into the sitting room that features exposed beams and prominent fireplace. The Vale Garden Houses conservatory provides further living space and offers fine views across the garden and rolling countryside beyond. The study is enveloped with bookcases and is perfectly private for working from home.

The snug feels cosy with a wood burning stove. This links to the second Vale Garden Houses conservatory, which offers further dining space and has fine views. The kitchen
has been expertly re-fitted by Alexander Lewis and features a bespoke range of contemporary fitted units to include a pantry cupboard, central island, integrated Miele double oven, Miele gas hob, dishwasher, Quooker hot water tap and fridge/freezer. The boot room offers day to-day entry from the front drive and is perfect for storing muddy boots, there is a handy guest cloakroom tucked to the side.

Upstairs the master bedroom commands fine views of the countryside and features a walk-in dressing room and ensuite bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom has been fitted with shower cubicle, wash hand basin set within vanity unit and a WC.

Attractive, landscaped formal gardens with well-stocked borders wrap the rear and side elevations of this home and were designed by the Chelsea Flower Show medallist Elspeth Stockwell. Park railings allow unhindered views to the paddock and the rolling countryside of Leicestershire and Northamptonshire. The original 'pinfold' lies behind a brick wall and is accessed via a gate from the orchard end of the courtyard to the front of the house. Currently used as a play area, it would also lend itself to the development of a kitchen garden.

The courtyard is gravelled to a raised orchard area, providing ample off-road parking and is accessible via an electric gate. The outbuildings, a former coach house and stables comprise double garage, store and workshop with a further mezzanine floor offering space above. There is scope to convert this to further accommodation subject to consents.

Security is well catered for with an automated six-bar gate, alarm, CCTV, and external lighting.
