About this property

Formally the village brewery, serving various Coaching Inns within the village and subsequently extended to the front in the 1780's with further, more recent additions to the rear, this Grade II Listed family home has been significantly upgraded by the present owners in recent years and now provides a stunning family home set on a magnificent plot of approximately 0.58 acres located in the heart of this prestigious south east Leicestershire village.

Great Glen has long been regarded as one of the most sought after locations in rural south Leicestershire. The area is well placed for access to Market Harborough and Leicester city centre, both offering a wide range of shopping and recreational facilities plus mainline railway stations offering access to London. In recent years the re-siting of The Leicester Grammar School has been another major driver for families coming into the area, with Stoneygate School, Leicester High School for Girls and Uppingham and Oakham Schools being within a 30 minute car journey. The area is popular for riding, with an abundance of bridleways nearby, golfing at Glen Gorse and water sports at Rutland Water. Communications are excellent, with the M1 motorway connections at junctions 20 and 21, the M69 via junction 21 of the M1, and for travels further afield via Nottingham East Midlands Airport.
