Vendors Comments - Situated on a quite no-through road in the delightful and sought after village of Leire is The Mop Tops, a large and beautifully presented family home that was built in 2000. We were the first people to own the house and Id say that it was its quirkiness that initially attracted us, says Juliet. Its been built to look like a converted period farmhouse and the attention to detail is quite something else. There are really unusual features such as blocked-in doors and windows and lots of exposed timber that gives it real character. In fact its been designed so well that some people are shocked to discover how new it is.

Something else that really drew us to the house was the sheer amount of space; when we first viewed the property we took one look at the lounge and both said, this is a real party house. The living room is huge, the kitchen stretches from the front all the way to the back of the house, and the garden room has lovely big patio doors so it can be extended right out into the garden. Its also incredibly light and bright and has a homely feel throughout. Weve loved living here.

The garden is south facing and because it backs onto open farmland the views are quite stunning, continues Juliet. We have open lawns, two patio areas one by the house and the other at the top of the garden, so we can follow the sun throughout the day and an attractive avenue of fruit trees. Its a very peaceful garden and because theres a good amount of space between us and the neighbours its also very private.

Favourite Room: The lounge is my favourite part of the house purely because its so large and has a lot of character, says Juliet. The ceiling goes right up to the rafters, which enhances the feeling of space, but the huge wood-burning stove keeps it wonderfully cosy and warm in winter.

Favourite aspect of the grounds or surrounding area: The house sits in this lovely quiet village and backs onto nothing but open farmland, so its incredibly peaceful and very picturesque, says Juliet, and yet we benefit from really good travel links. The M1 and M6 are within easy reach and were almost equidistant between Rugby and Leicester. We enjoy this beautiful rural location and yet were not in the slightest bit isolated.

Memorable event (if not another favourite room or unique feature): At the top of the stairs we have a large galleried landing where we have three comfortable chairs, says Juliet. Its a lovely spot and we often sit up there in the evening to read, chat or just to take in the amazing view.

What theyll miss most / why they are leaving: We have decided to downsize a little, so Ill definitely miss the space when we leave, says Juliet. Ill also miss the lifestyle that the house and location has afforded us, and the little things such as sitting out on the patio with a G&T; its a delightful place to live.
