A unique development opportunity to purchase a period cottage with planning consent for the erection of a first floor and two storey extension, to convert the existing dwelling into a three bedroom house, which enjoys countryside views.

The highly desirable south Leicestershire village of Newton Harcourt is surrounded by open countryside, yet is conveniently accessible to the nearby centres of Leicester, Wigston, Oadby and Market Harborough. The nearby village of Great Glen offers a range of local shops, delicatessen, post office and Co-op store. Great Glen also has an excellent choice of schooling including primary school, Leicester Grammar and Stoneygate Preparatory School, providing both state and private education. For the commuter, both Leicester and Market Harborough have mainline rail services to London St Pancras. The M1 is accessible at either Junctions 20 or 21 and the nearby A6 provides access to Leicester and Market Harborough.

The site is being offered for sale by way of Private Treaty, and the vendors reserve the right to reject any or all offers.
