This Grade II listed detached period cottage was lovingly restored and refurbished to the current owners high specification some five years ago to provide deceptively spacious and exceptionally well presented gas centrally heated accommodation briefly comprising sitting room, separate dining room, well appointed breakfast kitchen, two double bedrooms, small office space, and shower room/toilet. One of the many features to the property is undoubtedly the sunny aspected and walled cottage garden which has been creatively landscaped and interestingly planted.
The Leicestershire village of Quorn is one of the area's most well regarded locations and has at its centre many go-to restaurants, shops and pubs as well as recreational facilities and schools. Being slightly to the south of Loughborough it is well placed for access to the world renowned Sports University, Collages and Endowed Schools, and for the town centre shops and facilities.
The property is also situated close to the edge of Charnwood Forest countryside and, in particular, being only three miles or so from the Outwoods and a little further to Bradgate Park, an 850 acre moorland park well known for the landmarks of Old John and the ruins of the 15th manor house.
Ease of access is afforded to Leicester, Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Derby and Nottingham, and there are the M1 and M69 motorways nearby for travel nationally. In addition the East Midlands International Airport is within 13 miles of the property and there is the mainline station at Loughborough for high speed rail services to London St Pancras.
