“I knew the area well as I grew up here and we jumped at the chance of buying the property as they don’t come up for sale very often. We liked the size of the plot and recognised that there was potential to create a lovely, family home, as well as run our business from here too,” says the vendor.
“We have made a number of additions, including a home office, two extra bedrooms and a bathroom but perhaps my favourite change has been the conservatory. It has played a huge part in our life here as we use it for down time, entertaining and dining. It has underfloor heating, so we can use it all year round and double doors open out to the garden creating a seamless indoor / outdoor lifestyle.”
“The location is fabulous. I’ve always loved the tree lined avenue and we can easily access the amenities in the town centre, yet we’re just a short distance away from the countryside where I enjoy walking the dog for miles across the fields. There is a shop and pub in the village, as well as a big garden centre nearby. We can hop on to the Leicester Tigers bus and enjoy the home games and social events without having to use the car which is a real bonus.”
“Electric gates at the front of the property provide a sense of seclusion and security. The Indian Bean Tree is always an interesting talking point, whilst the south facing rear garden is fully mature and very private. There is room for children to play, as well as a patio area which is the ideal spot to relax in the sun or entertain friends and family.”
“I like to spend time in the front room and we use it as a snug / tv room. It’s cool in the summer and cosy in the winter when we light the log burner.”
Favourite aspect of the grounds or surrounding area
“I like the convenience of the location. I enjoyed walking my son to school in the village where I made some good friends.”
Memorable event (if not another favourite room or unique feature)
“The house and garden are perfect for entertaining. We’ve hosted numerous family celebrations with marquees and bouncy castles on the lawn and we can retreat into the conservatory if it starts to rain.”
What they’ll miss most / why they are leaving
“I’ll miss those summer evenings in the conservatory, as well as the area and our friendly neighbours. It’s a great house and area for families to enjoy but I’m ready to move on to something different in the next stage of my life.”
All mains services are available.
The property has a fully working security alarm which can monitored and CCTV system with cameras front and back to the property
