Offering three reception rooms and a luxury living/dining kitchen, the property also features three recently refitted shower rooms and a family bathroom by Sottini, gym/bedroom and study/bedroom. Design features in the master suite include a dressing room by Moir & Wade and stunning full width balcony. An impressive reception hall, high ceilings and exceptional attention to detail including underfloor heating throughout the ground and first floor, integral three car garage with remote control doors and a second floor en-suite bedroom with lounge/playroom, ideal for an au pair, dependent relative or as a teenager's suite. Rotherby is a highly desirable and unspoilt village ideal for fast access to Leicester, Nottingham, Loughborough, Oakham and Melton Mowbray. The property benefits from oil fired central heating, sealed unit double glazing, alarm system and all fitted carpets/curtains are included.
The Property This substantial family home was constructed for the current owners by Glencoe homes in 2000/1. The property was a bespoke building project in the former grounds of Rotherby nurseries, which comprised a conversion of a range of period buildings and barns and the construction of two brand new homes. Hoby View was therefore a project to design and build a property to an exacting specification, which has subsequently been upgraded and remodelled. Design features include a superb living/dining kitchen, a large reception hall with a galleried landing over, a full width balcony off the master bedroom and high ceilings with deep moulded cornicing, which give a feel of space and light. The accommodation is extensive; the property offers a total of up to seven bedrooms, three en-suite shower rooms, and a four piece family bathroom. The dressing room and study are fitted with bespoke furniture by Moir & Wade, and the boot room was designed and fitted by Shortland Crafts. The rear elevation enjoys spectacular west facing views over landscaped garden towards the village of Hoby, providing magnificent sunsets and views of The Wreake Valley. The property lends itself to entertaining, with an immaculate drawing room with doors through to a dining room. An open plan kitchen, breakfast room and family room ensure the house retains a warm family feel. The second floor en-suite bedroom with adjacent sitting room is ideal for a teenager or independent adult, au-pair or as a playroom for younger children.
