A fabulous extended five bedroom home situated on a 0.23 acre plot with glorious views of the Leicestershire countryside on the outskirts of this popular village.
Introduction - The Brambles was acquired by our present owners as a renovation project and has been extended considerably from its original faade to provide five double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a master with en-suite, whilst the versatile ground floor offers an open plan kitchen/dining/family room, sitting room, study, utility room, boot room and cloakroom. There is off road parking for several vehicles and an envious plot of 0.23 acres with outstanding views across the neighbouring countryside. The property also has the benefit of some significant outbuildings including a music studio, which could easily be adapted to create a work from home office. The house benefits from gas central heating, with modern underfloor heating on the ground floor and double-glazed windows afford some super views from the rear elevation. The property is offered for sale with no onward chain and internal inspection is strongly recommended.
