Swannington is a sought-after rural village located five miles east of Ashby-de-la-Zouch and 2 miles from Coalville. Surrounded by countryside it’s great for commuters with access to the M42 and A50 close by, whilst enjoying a great village school, hugely popular Indian restaurant and a good local pub!

Having been thoughtfully extended and renovated this three storey family home has much to offer which can only be appreciated by a personal visit. Full of history, the owners inform us that the main part of the house dates back to circa 1540 or thereabouts it currently offers 6 bedrooms, 4 bathroom (3 en-suite), a huge attic family room with many uses, two reception rooms and a full width open plan live-in family kitchen with sitting/breakfast and dining area. There is a detached garage to the rear and a breath taking open framed glass studio annexe full of possibilities for a wide variety of uses.

Accommodation: A tall classic panelled door with arch fan light over opens into the reception hall where stairs lead off. Lying to both your left and right are two lovely reception rooms, both of which have feature inglenook fireplaces and original exposed beams.

Perfect for any family and running full width of the property is the fabulous open plan contemporary living space that seamlessly combines three different areas into one. The dining room enjoys a dual aspect overlooking the gardens with oak flooring, an exposed fire and an exposed original stone wall. The breakfast kitchen has natural stone floor running through and a wide range of bespoke hand painted cabinets with complementary countertops and inset appliances. Two windows within the kitchen offer glorious views over the garden. Lastly is the sitting area with its bespoke full height storage cupboards housing the central heating boiler; there is plenty of space for a family sofa and a full height glazed wall looks across through the rear hallway up to the patio area. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a practical guest cloakroom which is fitted with a WC.

The first-floor landing leads you to four bedrooms and a large family bathroom. Particular attention should be drawn to the master bedroom suite with its painted beams, large walk-in wardrobe and modern ensuite shower room. Bedroom two also has the benefit of fitted wardrobes, views over the rear garden and an ensuite shower room and bedroom three has beams to the ceiling and a feature fireplace at the focal point with built in cupboards to the side.

Also up here is a delightful full width open plan attic room with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, roof trusses, glazed sky lights and windows to the rear overlooking the gardens. This is a perfect space for a family playroom, home office, cinema room etc.

Return downstairs and step out to the rear of the property and you will find yourself standing within wonderful mature private gardens, thoughtfully landscaped into separate zoned areas including a vegetable garden area.

As wonderful as the gardens are, your eyes will be drawn to the architecturally beautiful oak framed and mainly glassed two storey building which is suitable for a whole host of uses.
