Greenfields is situated in a delightful position at the head of a no-through road off Brick Kiln Road and has views towards Blackbrook Reservoir. The property lies within the Charnwood Forest, about a mile south-west of Shepshed, which provides most day to day facilities including shops, a library, church, sports clubs, pubs and restaurants. The university town of Loughborough is about five miles away and has a wider range of shops and facilities and a main line railway station, although the cities of Nottingham, Leicester, Derby and Birmingham are all easily accessible.
There are four primary schools within Shepshed, which feed into three secondary schools in the area, along with Hind Leys Community College. The area is well served by a number of highly regarded private schools including Repton Prep, Repton and Loughborough Endowed Schools. There is plenty to see and do within the picturesque and historic Charnwood Forest area, including woodland walks, hillwalking, rock climbing, horse riding and cycling. Places to visit include Bradgate Park, Beacon Hill Country Park, Swithland and Cropston Reservoirs, The National Space Centre and King Richard III Visitor Centre. Major road links nearby include the M1, A42/M42 and A50. East Midlands Airport and Birmingham Airports are both easily accessed.
Greenfields is a former farmhouse which has been extended over the years to provide flexible family accommodation. The property now offers the scope and opportunity for further improvements. The house is complemented by an indoor swimming pool and a range of outbuildings, including a workshop, garaging and stabling, all set within about 24.7 acres of grassland and woodland. There are fabulous views towards Blackbrook Reservoir.
The front door opens into an enclosed brick porch with a door leading into a wide open plan living area which has engineered oak flooring and incorporates a sitting room with a contemporary gas fire and patio doors and a snug at the front of the house. A dining room with patio doors looks out to the rear. An oak and glass staircase leads to the first floor. From the snug a door leads through to the kitchen and a side hallway providing access to a laundry/utility room, a wet room, two useful rooms, ideal for use as a home office and a WC. Doors at either end of this hallway lead out to the front and rear of the house and there is a courtesy door into an integral double garage.
From the sitting room double doors lead through to the pool room which measures 56’ x 16’5” and has six sets of sliding patio doors opening on to the gardens. Adjacent to the pool room is a shower room with spa shower and a changing room. A disabled access lift provides access to a conservatory. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, two of which have en suite facilities. A door from one of the bedrooms leads out to a conservatory which has three sets of sliding patios doors leading out on to a roof terrace with stone Regency balustrade. A family bathroom completes the first floor.
Greenfields is approached via an electrically operated gate, flanked by brick pillars, off a long driveway off Brick Kiln Lane. There is a further access driveway off Charley Road to the south-west. At the front of the property, there is extensive parking space for several vehicles and a lawned central turning circle with water fountain. Brick built garage blocks on either side of the gates provides space for five vehicles and a store room. Adjacent to the triple garage is a small stable block with two loose boxes and a tack room. A wide driveway leads to a large detached workshop, measuring 33’2” x 27’4”, which is auxiliary to the house and could be converted to provide additional living accommodation if required and subject to obtaining the necessary consents. Adjoining the workshop is a further specialist workshop area with ramp (the ramp may be available by separate negotiation). The driveway continues to a larger Harlow stable block, having four loose boxes and two tack rooms, having water and power and a central arch with clock tower leading through to a small paddock.
Formal gardens at the rear of the house are enclosed and mainly laid to lawn, with a wide covered patio area.
Grazing land and woodland extends to circa 23 acres in all, all of which has road access from both the property’s main driveway and from Charley Road to the west. A gateway off Pudding Bag Lane provides access into the field to the north of the house.
