Seller insight: It was the location of this beautiful House which first attracted the current owners to this spacious family home. “The house enjoys a quiet setting and feels like rural, ” they say, “whilst being just a few miles from the centre of Leicester with all the convenience of amenities and entertainments it has to offer.
Situated in the highly regarded residential development of Stretton Hall, the cul de sac on which the house sits is quite set back from the main road, providing a safe, tranquil environment in which to bring up a family. The estate is within easy reach of work and schools, with convenient access to the A6.”
The house itself has been extended and reconfigured by the owners to create the ideal family home. “The sociable open plan kitchen/family room is attached to the bright and airy conservatory, ” say the owners, “enabling an easy flow between the rooms which is very conducive to entertaining and everyday life alike. Further, with its generous footprint, the house is able to accommodate a lot of people for longer visits.
Between the 6 bedrooms and the study, and the games room with sofabed, the property can comfortably sleep 10 people when family or friends come to stay! There is also a walk–in shower and WC on the ground floor, perfect for elderly relatives who might wish to sleep downstairs.”
The outdoor spaces also have much to offer, from the generous parking at the front of the house, to the pretty garden at the rear. “The garden has been beautifully landscaped, ” say the owners, “with a spacious decking area connecting the conservatory and the lounge from outside. This creates the perfect venue for al fresco dining and outdoor entertaining in the warmer months. The whole estate is surrounded by woodland which can be accessed for peaceful walking."
The property is ideally situated to make the most of the excellent educational opportunities nearby. “The nearby village of Great Glen offers local shopping and popular schools such as Leicester Grammar School, ” say the owners, “within walking distance of the end of the estate. The nearby Oadby has popular schools, shops, restaurants and leisure centres. The property is within easy reach of local communication networks including buses and trains, both Leicester and Market Harborough railway stations being within some 20 minutes' drive, making this an extremely convenient location in which to live.
We are lucky also to have wonderful neighbours on the estate, many of whom have become great friends.” Best thing about the grounds “We are very fond of our garden, which has provided us with a fruitful crop of vegetables and plants!”
What they will miss most “We shall greatly miss the quiet location, surrounded by countryside footpaths and walking routes. Being a keen runner, I love being able to run for miles right from the doorstep, without having to cross any major roads.”
Memorable event "Every so often, we host an alfresco party in the summertime, inviting friends and family to enjoy the garden, the largest being our son’s engagement party which we will always remember." ––––Vendor
