A substantial five bedroomed semi-detached period house of character with extensive accommodation and outbuildings extending to in excess of 4,000 sq ft, situated in the heart of the popular south Leicestershire village of Husbands Bosworth.
Formerly a hotel and public house until about 1965, this large family home retains a wealth of period features including beamed ceilings, originally housing a brewery, skittles alley and village hall. With the benefit of oil fired central heating, UPVC double glazed windows and solar panels, the property has been sympathetically restored over the years to include an entrance hall with feature fireplace, snug with cast iron burner, dining room which was formerly the bar, rear hall and large breakfast kitchen with handmade reclaimed pine cupboards. There is also a downstairs cloakroom/wc, half cellar where the beer used to be stored, and a spacious games room, formerly the brewery. A staircase rises to a large 38' studio lounge, formerly the village hall with high ceiling and exposed beams, having a door and external staircase leading down to the rear garden.
On the upper floor are five double bedrooms, the master having an en-suite shower room, useful study and family bathroom.
To the rear is a huge workshop, 49' in length, formerly the old bowling alley, with a large store above, adjoining which is a brick garage and former stables, all of which offer wonderful potential, subject to planning.
The rear garden is of excellent size with patio areas, and there is a pedestrian and vehicular right of way across the neighbouring property providing off road parking.
The popular south Leicestershire village of Husbands Bosworth is surrounded by attractive open countryside, and is handy for the nearby towns of Lutterworth and Market Harborough, both of which have excellent shopping and supermarket facilities, schools, restaurants, and bars. For the commuter, the M1 is conveniently situated at Junction 20, the A14 lies to the south, and Market Harborough has mainline services to London St Pancras in about an hour. Both Leicester and Northampton are easily accessible.
