6 Green Lane is nestled in the centre of this pretty village surrounded by glorious rolling countryside. Stoke Albany is a popular village with an active community on the edge of the Welland Valley on the Leicestershire/Northamptonshire border. In the village there is a popular pub with restaurant, and a children's playground as well as a charming stone village hall which is host to a pre-school and a range of other events and activities. The nearby village of Wilbarston provides further amenities including a school, shop and Post Office. The popular market town of Market Harborough is about five miles away and offers a superb range of amenities as well as a fast rail connection to London St Pancras. The A14, M1 and M6 are all easily reached. There is good private and state schooling available nearby.
This pretty ironstone would greatly benefit from some modernisation and could also have potential for further extension subject to gaining all relevant planning consents. Although a period property with many original features including exposed timbers, it is not listed. There are gardens to the front and rear of the property with off road parking and attached is a workshop and large garage.
The main entrance leads into a central hall with staircase leading to the first floor. To one side is the kitchen with dual aspect windows and enough space for a seating area. The kitchen has a good range of floor and wall units with a small breakfast bar. As well as exposed ceiling timbers there is a fireplace currently housing a gas fire. Steps lead down from the kitchen to the large utility room with additional storage in the loft above. Doors provide access out to the front and rear of the property and to an additional WC.
On the other side of the entrance hall is the sitting room. A particular feature of this room is the beautiful, ancient, arched bressummer over the inglenook fireplace. There is also a large and useful storage cupboard.
On the first floor there are two good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is an additional smaller third bedroom which could also provide the hallway access to a possible extension – subject to gaining all relevant planning consents.
Attached to the property is a small barn/workshop and attached to that is a large garage. This property benefits from three phrase electricity supply. In front of the garage is space for parking.
To the front is a delightful, carefully planted front garden with various seating places to make the most of the sun throughout the day. The front garden is mainly enclosed by an attractive stone wall. To the rear is a garden mainly laid to lawn enclosed by fencing and a stone wall.
