Property Description

A substantial detached country home offered with sale with no upward chain, discreetly positioned in the centre of its 0.39 acre plot. Recently modernised yet retaining traditional features, this home offers fantastic accommodation throughout which extends to approximately 2600 sq.ft.

Griffydam is in easy travelling access of Ashby to the west and Loughborough to the east and the nearby A42/M42 motorway provides fast and easy access for the commuter to all of the main Midlands centres alongside East Midlands and Birmingham airports.

Breach House sits well back from a quiet lane behind automated Iroko hardwood gates which open onto a sweeping drive with extensive parking and the property itself. Flagstone floored large canopy porch provides sheltered entrance with a main entrance door opening to reveal a wide impressive central hallway with balustraded staircase leading off and decorative feature wood panelled wall.

On the ground floor you will find a spacious 400 sq.ft living room with dual aspect windows and at the focal point a reclaimed brick built fireplace with wood mantel and inset Charnwood multi-fuel stove.

The second of the two reception rooms makes an excellent family or formal dining room and again has an inset Charnwood multi-fuel stove as its focal point, there are dual aspect windows, one being a large walk-in bay.

The heart of any bustling family home is the kitchen and Breach House doesn't disappoint, it spreads across two rooms offering separate zones for both cooking and dining, a bespoke Schreiber style kitchen with soft close drawers and doors runs throughout offset by complementary granite counter tops with down lighters above, inset Belfast style sink and integrated appliances comprise washing machine, dishwasher, fridge freezer and tumble dryer. A Rangemaster range with five ring hob and double oven aptly takes care of any cooking needs. Tiled floor runs throughout and leads you to the adjacent kitchen dining area and here you will find matching cabinets and a dresser style unit with glazed doors and concealed lighting. There is ample space for a dining table and a feature of the room is the rustic brick built chimney breast which houses a recessed Rayburn range (currently deactivated). Completing the ground floor accommodation is the useful guest cloakroom.

Ascend the stairs to the first floor and you will find yourself standing upon a generous-sized galleried landing off which leads the five bedrooms and family bathroom. Particular attention should be drawn to the master bedroom due to its size, it has bespoke decorated fitted wardrobes running all the way along one wall and the benefit of an en suite with w.c, panel bath, wash hand basin and separate shower cubicle, and chrome heated towel rail.

Bedrooms two, three and four are all good doubles with pleasant aspects whilst bedroom five has the benefit of triple fitted mirrored wardrobes with sliding doors and could become a useful dressing room, nursery or study. There are lovely views to the rear over the garden and countryside beyond.

The principal family bathroom is well presented and well equipped with panel bath, pedestal wash hand basin, w.c and separate shower enclosure. Decorative tiling to the walls and chrome heated towel rail.

Returning to the landing, a pull down loft ladder provides access to an extensive loft space with lighting, partially boarded and the potential for conversion (subject to planning permission etc).


The front garden features shaped lawns, a variety of beautiful shrubs and trees, security lighting and power points.

To the rear you will find a lovely landscaped garden with two shaped lawns, a gazebo, integrated wall seating, patio dining area, decorative lighting, outside taps and power point. These gardens are fully enclosed with brick walling, mature trees and shrubs offering fabulous privacy. Extensive flower beds are stocked with a wide variety of flowers, plants and soft fruits.
