Westdene is quietly situated in the heart of Stoke Albany,
a delightful Welland Valley village on the Leicestershire Northamptonshire border. In the village there is a pub with restaurant, a children's playground and the nearby village of Wilbarston provides further amenities such as a school, shop and Post Office.
The delightful 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. Of particular note are Maidwell, Spratton Hall and Stoneygate, Uppingham, Oakham and Leicester Grammar.
Westdene in Stoke Albany is a carefully restored double fronted stone house which offers a perfect blend of period charm and modern convenience. While the building has been finished to a high specification, wooden floors, open fireplaces and exposed ceilings help to retain the original character of this delightful home.
On the ground floor, there is a sitting room, with double doors leading to the study/bedroom 3, direct access to the rear garden. The dining room opens onto the kitchen/breakfast room which also leads onto the rear garden. There are 2 double bedrooms on the first floor, and a bathroom.
Outside are two separate lawned areas of rear garden divided by an attractive archway with useful outbuildings with potential for conversion, stpp, on either side. To the front of the house is an off street parking area. There are wooden floors and double glazing throughout.
The front door opens onto a hallway leading to the sitting room; an attractive room with beamed ceiling and a wide alcove with stone fireplace and cupboards on either side. There are glazed double doors opening onto the bedroom 3/study; a lovely light room with high ceiling, opening directly onto the rear garden, and also having a well fitted ensuite shower room.
The charming dining room has exposed ceiling beams and fireplace with wood burning stove. Double doors lead to the kitchen/breakfast room which has been very well planned and laid out to provide ample wall and floor units with granite work surfaces, and space for oven, dishwasher and refrigerator. The breakfast area has a fitted bench seat and glass doors to the garden. There is a utility area housing the gas boiler and with space for a washing machine. Beyond is a cloakroom with wc and basin.
On the first floor are two double bedrooms which have been extended into the loft space above to create high ceilings and interesting architectural features. The bathroom is well appointed with a roll top bath, shower, basin and wc.
There are gardens on three sides of the house, joined by a paved pathway running from an off street parking space and lawned area at the front, to the rear. The back garden is divided into two areas; one immediately outside the house and a second very private walled garden approached up steps and through an attractive wide archway. There are two substantial outbuildings on either side of the archway providing useful storage space, both have potential for conversion to provide additional accommodation, subject to planning permission.
