About this property

Walnut Leys was Bloor Homes' first development, built as a small development for Executives and their families in the growing south Leicestershire economy.

This particular property was built circa 1969, having only one owner since new and positioned on a substantial plot close to the heart of this regarded south Leicestershire village. It is a spacious detached family home thought suitable for extension, (subject to the necessary planning consents).

Walnut Leys has always enjoyed a strong family oriented feel, located in the historic centre of the village of Cosby, approximately five miles south of the city centre. The village itself benefits from a public house, cafes, restaurants, a golf course, post office and general store catering for most day to day needs. There are two Nursery schools and a Primary School. In neighbouring Broughton Astley Thomas Estley High School offers education for the 11 - 14 age group and Countesthorpe Community College in Countesthorpe catering for the 14 - 19 age group. The private Leicester Grammar School is approximately within a twenty minute drive.

The position is convenient for excellent road communications via the A426 Lutterworth Road and Junction 21 of the M1/M69 motorway networks plus rail access to London St Pancras, or from Rugby to Euston in little over an hour. International travel is available from the nearby East Midlands and Birmingham Airports, making this an excellent location for modern day 'remote work' practices.

The property is entered via a porch housing a cloakroom with a white two piece suite. The entrance hall houses the stairs to the first floor with a useful understairs storage cupboard beneath. The sitting room has a window to the front elevation, an exposed Inglenook brick fireplace with an open fire and a double glazed sliding door to the rear.

A utility room with a window and door to the rear elevation provides a stainless steel sink, plumbing for automatic washing machine, space for a condenser dryer and access to the garage.
