Four villages close to Leicester that people can’t seem to get enough of

Mon 19 June 2023

Andrew Granger & Co’s Leicester offices’ property sales area covers a wide range of appealing places to live and there are some firm favourites, including a certain ‘golden triangle’.

Scraptoft, Thurnby, Bushby and Houghton on the Hill are all villages within a short distance of each other, so what is it that makes these locations such sought-after places to live in?

Firstly, they all have that desired balance of having countryside on the doorstep, coupled with easy accessibility to Leicester City Centre.

All the villages happen to sit near to the A47 which provides excellent access to Leicester in one direction and Peterborough in the other, along with other commuter links such as the M1 and M69. Leicester City Centre is only approximately 25 minutes away by car and offers fantastic train links to London, Nottingham, and Birmingham.

You’ll also find that there are property types and sizes for a real selection of tastes and budgets, including a stunning mix of homes with character and period charm.

And then there’s the amenities that the villages offer which, depending on location, includes superb options for schools, sports clubs, village shops and supermarkets, pubs, village halls and churches, and much more.

These are all locations that our Leicester sales team know very well and even live in or have lived in themselves. If you would like any help or advice in moving to one of these popular locations, or if you’re looking to sell your home, please get in contact with our experienced team who will be more than happy to help.
