Located at the heart of the scenic National Forest, is this handsome & most distinctive Victorian detached home extending to approx. 2900sq ft. of internal living space.

Oakleigh House is a striking early Victorian detached family home of excellent proportions, extending to approx. 2900sq ft of internal space. It occupies an excellent plot and position extending to approx. 0.65 of an acre of mainly formal gardens.

Dating back to the mid-18th Century, the property was originally a working farm and still retains a substantial land holding. It affords a very versatile interior, retaining much of the period charm and integrity of the age whilst offering immense scope and potential to further develop and utilise the range of outbuildings into self-contained accommodation/home office etc.

The property benefits from gas fired central heating and sealed unit double glazing with distinctive sliding sash bay windows to the front elevation.

Internally, there is an entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor, three reception rooms, a breakfast kitchen, and rear entrance hall giving access to the utility room and cloakroom/WC.

On your right is the excellent sized sitting room with a lovely character bay window and feature focal fireplace while across the hall is the separate dining room that also lies off the kitchen and is prime for knocking through into one large living family kitchen if required. A bay picture window overlooks the front formal gardens and there is beautiful parquet flooring throughout.

The kitchen has a range of wooden base and wall mounted units, space for the usual appliances and plenty of room for a breakfast kitchen. A door opens to the rear hall off which is the garden room, a wonderful room that makes for a superb place to sit and take in the beautiful south westerly facing mature gardens which are accessed via the French double doors flanked by tall picture windows.

On the first floor are four genuine double bedrooms including a large master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. It also has a study which would make an ideal walk-in dressing room. Completing the first-floor accommodation is the fifth single bedroom and family bathroom that has been refitted with a luxury suite comprising bath, vanity wash hand basin, WC and a large corner quadrant shower cubicle. Attractive full height complementary tiling completes the picture. From the landing stairs rise to a second-floor attic room perfect for storage or as a children’s playroom.

Outside, the house is set back from Ashby Road behind a long driveway approach with screening gates. The driveway provides ample off-road parking for cars/caravans and provides access to the range of outbuildings including a double garage and workshop with storage loft over.

There are beautiful landscaped gardens to the front and side elevations which have been carefully tended and nurtured over the years by the current owners, creating a unique setting with numerous flowering borders, annual and perennial plants, specimen trees and shrubs. At the front is a wonderful ornamental pond and seating area leading down to the lawn. At the rear there are numerous patio areas, a feature garden pond and shaped lawn. From here a path leads into a vegetable garden which has a substantial greenhouse.

Oakleigh House is located just 1.5 miles from the market town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch and at the very heart of the National Forest, a 200sq mile woodland development. This allows access to many nature walks and cycle routes including the Forestry Commission National cycle centre at Hicks Lodge, Donisthorpe Country park and the Ashby trail, all within walking distance from Oakleigh. Moira also benefits from the Conkers discovery centre and Moira furnace museum. Moira is within close proximity to the M42 allowing convenient access to Birmingham, Nottingham and the wider motorway network. There is a regular bus service which operates between Moira and Burton-upon-Trent, Coalville and Leicester. Local education facilities include Moira Primary School, Ashby Grammar School and Ashby Ivanhoe College, which have all been given good Ofsted reports.
