Outside, the property occupies a wide frontage with wooden five bar gate opening onto a gravel driveway. The property is set well back from the road with a lawned front garden having flower and shrub borders. Mainly lawned rear garden with fenced and walled surrounds, range of brick outbuildings including workshop and two stores, gravelled area providing outdoor seating space.
The highly desirable south Leicestershire village of Newton Harcourt is surrounded by attractive open countryside, yet is conveniently accessible to the nearby centres of Leicester, Wigston, Oadby and Market Harborough. Great Glen lies just over a mile away, offering a range of local shops including a delicatessen, post office and Co-op store. Great Glen also has an excellent choice of schooling including a primary school, Leicester Grammar and Stoneygate School.
