The Property This substantial family home has been remodelled and extended by the current owners who are now downsizing to a brand new property they are building adjacent.

In addition, is a full width raised sun terrace, planted borders, the whole enjoying complete privacy and an elevated view over open countryside towards Melton Mowbray. In addition is outside lighting and tap.
Detached Double Garage With fitted light and power, storage in the roof eaves and electric up and over doors.
