The property Strawfield House, was built in 1886 of brick with a slate roof and has been in the same ownership for the last 34 years. The approach, along a long paved driveway with the gardens stretching to either side, leads to a covered porch and the front door. The porch leads to an inner hall with the stairs rising ahead and, to the right, a large 33 foot drawing room which is filled with light, a theme that endures throughout the house, and has a working fireplace to the eastern side. Opposite the drawing room is a dining room with a conservatory extension. Underneath the stairs is a basement and, beyond, is a study with an adjacent cloakroom and boiler room. Acting as a through room to the kitchen is a large games room which has sliding doors opening onto the garden. Beyond this is the kitchen with a breakfast area and a range of farmhouse style units, a central island and granite worktops. This leads through to a rear hall providing access to either side of the house and then on to a large boot room with WC. Upstairs, accommodation is extensive with a large principal bedroom with copious fitted wardrobes and an en-suite with a shower and bath, five further bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bathrooms and a further family bathroom.
Outside The driveway continues around to the west side of the house where there is a generous paved parking area in front of a triple garage. Behind the garage there is a large, almost 1000 square feet, storage building which would lend itself to a multitude of uses, both residential and commercial. The gardens flow to the east and west and are principally set to lawn but are bordered by mature trees and shrubs. There is a terrace stretching along the eastern side of the house and various vistas have been cleverly created which run throughout the grounds.
Location The village of Walcote lies approximately 1 mile east of junction 20 of the M1, within attractive countryside, and is well placed for the nearby market towns of Lutterworth (2 miles west) and Market Harborough (11 miles east). Both towns have excellent shopping and supermarket facilities, as well as well-thought of schools, sport clubs and leisure centres, as well as bars and restaurants. The village lies within the school catchment for Lutterworth High School, which has an Outstanding Ofsted rating, whilst the area scores well for a choice of Preparatory and Independent Schools, including Spratton Hall, Bilton Grange, Rugby and Ratcliffe College, among others. For commuters, Market Harborough and Rugby (9 miles south) offer mainline rail services to London, whilst the M1, M6 and A5 are also close at hand.
Directions From the M1 J20, take the A4304 east, signposted to Market Harborough and Walcote. Follow this road for three-quarters of a mile and you will see the drive to Strawfield House on your left hand side.
