Market Harborough, Oakham and Leicester are also easily reached. Twyford stands in some beautiful countryside which is easily accessed along an extensive network of local footpaths and bridleways. There is a popular local pub in the village; The Saddle and the Grade I listed Church of St Andrew.
Brook House is an attractive period home of brick construction under a slate roof which has been extended and considerably improved in recent years to become a really beautiful family home.
At its heart is a wonderful family kitchen/living room which divides naturally into separate cooking, living and study areas, and there is a really large living room, which combined with the reception hall, makes the house ideal for entertaining.
Upstairs all the bedrooms have their own bath or shower rooms and the whole property has been luxuriously finished and decorated using high quality fittings throughout, including Karndean or tiled floors throughout the ground floor, new carpets to the first floor and and handmade oak doors throughout.
The house is approached through an imposing electric gateway off Main Road across a shared private driveway to a gravelled parking area for two/three cars in front of the garage and workshop.
An oak front door opens onto the reception hall, which could also be used as an office or dining room. There is an attractive brick fireplace with stone flagged hearth and multifuel stove. To one side is a recessed storage cupboard with glass fronted bookshelves above.
A doorway leads to the guest cloakroom with tiled floor, basin and wc off.
The sitting room is particularly spacious and is therefore ideal for entertaining. It is currently arranged as two separate seating areas; one overlooking the front garden through a pretty bow window, and the other facing the fireplace and tv. The fireplace has a fitted multifuel stove and reclaimed timber beam. Two more windows overlook the side garden.
Across the hall, is the kitchen which being L shaped, divides naturally into separate cooking, dining and study areas. The dining area has double doors opening onto the patio and a beamed seating alcove ideal for a sofa. A door opens onto a walk in store cupboard with space for coats and household storage. The cooking area is fully fitted with handbuilt wall and floor units. There is an island with Bosch 5 ring gas hob, a larder with fitted oak shelves, plumbing and space for a double fridge/freezer, further equipment by Bosch includes fan oven, and combined microwave and grill, Caple coffee machine. There is a 2 oven Gas Aga set into a chimney breast with useful cupboards, a drinks fridge and work surfaces on either side.
A separate unit with sink and dishwasher overlooks the gardens and beyond is a wonderfully bright study area with ample room for a desk and bookshelves, and two Velux skylights. There is a door to the garden and a door the utility room which is well fitted with storage cupboards, a sink unit and Gas central heating boiler.
A wide staircase leads to the first floor landing. To the left is a master suite of bedroom, with well-appointed dressing room and shower room. There is a large and well fitted walk-in wardrobe and another built in wardrobe.
Two of the remaining bedrooms also have ensuite shower rooms, while the fourth, which the current owners use as the master suite, has a large range of fitted wardrobes, ample space for a dressing table and an ensuite bathroom with free standing double ended slipper bath.
The sunny south facing garden is to the front of the house and is beautifully maintained. It is mainly laid to lawn, divided by a sandstone flagged path leading from the parking area to the house. There is a wide patio approached directly from the kitchen, and with two separate spaces on either side of the entrance porch.
There is a beautiful Yew tree to one side and a second patio area with space for a barbecue and hot tub. The roadside boundary is screened by a mature conifer hedge and a brick wall.
The parking area which can accommodate 2-3 cars leads to a solid brick outbuilding with single garage, and a useful workshop/store, with power, light and a wc off..
