26 & 26a Measham Road are situated in prime position on the edge of Ashby de la Zouch, backing directly on to Willesley Park Golf Course. The semi-rural position provides easy access into the town and also to the A42/M42.
The location is ideal for access to regional centres and major lines of communication, including the A42/M42, A50 and M1. Birmingham, Derby, Leicester and Nottingham are all within striking distance. The main line railway stations of East Midlands Parkway and Tamworth provide excellent services to London St Pancras and Euston respectively. The property sits in an ideal position for access to Willesley Park Golf Club.
26 Measham Road is believed to date from the 1920s or 1930s with brick elevations beneath a blue tiled roof. The house has high ceilings and well-proportioned rooms which retain many period features. The generously proportioned accommodation within the main house extends to approximately 3,324 sq. ft. (gross internal area). In addition there is a substantial multi-purpose building of brick construction beneath a blue tile roof which includes an office suite, including two office areas, kitchen and WC, an annexe and garaging offering great scope to be put to a variety of uses, subject to any necessary consents.
A tarmac drive and path leads to a part glazed front door flanked by stained glass windows, opening into a generous reception hall with oak floor and doors connecting to the reception rooms. The sitting room is 18'11" x 13'11" with a gas fire and stone surround, and French doors lead into a timber framed conservatory of 30'2" x 10'10" (maximum) with a further set of French doors and a single pedestrian door to the garden terrace. This room has a lovely outlook across the rear gardens of the property towards the rear boundary adjoining Willesley Park Golf Course. A snug/study, fitted with a range of bookcases and a dining room, complete the reception rooms. Also accessed off the hall is the guest WC.
The kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units and includes a range of fitted appliances, with an archway leading through to the breakfast room. Some potential purchasers may consider to opening the archway further or indeed remove that dividing wall in order to create a larger open plan dining kitchen. A rear lobby area adjoining the kitchen provides access to a boiler room and utility room with a range of fitted units and sink.
Stairs rise from the reception hallway, to a broad landing area with a large window providing plenty of natural light. A door leads off into the master bedroom suite which includes an en-suite shower room and a range of fitted wardrobes. This room benefits from views over the rear gardens. The guest bedroom includes an en-suite bathroom, with WC and wash hand basin. The first floor includes three further bedrooms, a study, a bathroom and a shower room.
26 Measham Road, benefits from an excellent outbuilding (which has a separate address of 26a Measham Road) and incorporates office accommodation, ancillary residential accommodation and garaging. A single bedroom first floor flat cannot be let as a separate residential unit under the terms of the planning permission granted for the building, but would provide ideal accommodation for teenagers or dependent relatives or as guest accommodation. The generous office accommodation which extends to 635 sq. ft. (gross internal area), and includes two offices, a kitchen and WC, provides scope to base a business from the property which the vendors have done in the past - the grant of planning permission specified this as being for two employees. At the current time business rates are not payable on the unoccupied offices.
Grounds and gardens
26 Measham Road includes an extensive plot of approximately 0.86 acres in total. The property is accessed via a five bar timber gate hanging between attractive gate pillars set within a high brick wall which leads onto a tarmac driveway with parking for a number of vehicles. The gardens are laid mainly to lawn, and have a range of mature trees and shrubs on the property's boundaries, which with the brick wall on the front boundary provide a good degree of privacy. Species include oak, alder, laurel, yew, rhododendron, and beech hedging. We understand that seven trees within the rear garden are subject to tree preservation orders and therefore cannot be felled unless they are certified as being dead, dying or dangerous, which would subject to approval from the local authority's tree preservation officer. In addition a paved yard area adjoining the outbuilding provides useful additional parking and storage.
