Welcome to the village of Hemington (on the Leicestershire/Derbyshire border) and this CHARMING FOUR BEDROOM Stone and Brick built CHARACTER PROPERTY. We urge you to book your tour TODAY for this FAMILY HOME presented to a HIGH STANDARD throughout.

1 The Horseshoes is a splendid detached family home nestled on a private road in the picturesque village of Hemington. It is a fine example of craftsmanship and was constructed by Kings Newton Construction in 1995. The property has been designed to appear of an older age than it truly is and the use of reclaimed materials including Melbourne Stone adds to the impressive nature of this dwelling. Presented to a high standard throughout, there are character features including reclaimed timbers, a bowed truss in the kitchen which is believed to date back to the 15th / 16th century and English Oak Beams.

Upon arriving at The Horseshoes, this private road consists of five dwellings. The subject property is approached by a gabled porch with a Tudor style old English oak entrance door opening into the reception hallway. There are two parapeted Dormer Gables making this a property to admire and be proud of.

Once you step inside you will not be disappointed; we begin in the reception hallway which has a polished Rosewood block floor and revealed beamed ceiling. The polished American pitch Pine staircase rises to the first floor and access is given to the ground floor accommodation.

The spacious living room entered via Gothic styled glazed doors is the ideal space for relaxing and has English Oak revealed beam ceilings and a superb feature Inglenook fireplace, incorporating dressed stone Tudor surround with open grate, display hearth and open fire. There are double glazed windows to the front and rear aspects together with a cottage styled French window, giving access through the Oak conservatory, out onto the patio. Again, ideal for relaxing and a fine addition to the property by the current vendors.
Next, we move through to the dining area / family room. With a handmade English Terracotta tiled floor and English Oak beamed ceiling, there is a double-glazed window to the front aspect and cottage style French window with matching side screens to the rear aspect. Access is given externally to the south facing patio.

The kitchen is open plan to the dining area and the Craftsman fitted units including black granite work surfaces, recessed traditional Belfast deep white sink with mixer tap over and further cupboards beneath. To match, there is a central breakfast island with extra storage space. Additionally, there is a fitted Range Oven within the chimney breast recess and cupboards to either side. There is ample space for further appliances and the continued feature handmade English Terracotta tiled floor from the dining area.

A special feature of the kitchen is undoubtedly the bowed truss which we are advised this dates from the 15th / 16th Century and supports two Oak purlins. Completing the ground floor accommodation is the separate WC with polished Rosewood block floor and white suite.

Ascend to the first floor and from the semi-galleried landing access is given to accommodation and stairs rise to the second floor. There are two double bedrooms, the principle bedroom having en-suite facilities, which is accessed through a disguised door between the built-in wardrobes and the second bedroom having oak beams, a gas fire point and a shower. The family bathroom includes a matching suite and three-person Sauna with music system and lighting. There is a large walk-in shower, freestanding Victorian style bathtub, WC, and wash hand basin.

We then ascend to a second floor and two further double bedrooms accessed from a spacious landing. Each bedroom has a skylight window with very pleasant views and both bedrooms and the landing having access to eaves storage.

Proceed back downstairs and step outside into the rear partially lawned garden, having pond with fountain and shed, enclosed by brick walls and having gated access. There is a mature English Elm Tree and patio seating area surrounded by a variety of plants and shrubs.

Opposite the house is a fanned cobblestone two car standing area and access to the garage. The garage is constructed of reclaimed brick and has concrete floor, plastered ceiling, lighting, and trap door to loft access. There is a window to the side and twin polished wood entrance doors.

In conclusion, this property must be viewed. With Carpets and decoration work renewed in 2019, this is the perfect family home in an idyllic village location. This is your chance to own a fine example of craftsmanship and this is a property that John German are delighted to present to the market. Book your tour today.
