Lakeside Farm is beautifully positioned outside the village of Shangton, surrounded by Leicestershire’s rolling countryside. Shangton village is extremely popular and yet still very peaceful set just seven miles from Market Harborough, a thriving market town with outstanding local independent shops and a winder range of larger retailers and supermarkets as well as a theatre and some excellent restaurants. The charming town of Kibworth is also very close with a good range of shops and services as well as some highly regarded restaurants. Only 15 miles away is Leicester City where there are a host of further shops, leisure facilities and restaurants as well as the excellent cultural quarter.
Educational facilities in the area are excellent from the highly regarded Church Langton Primary School, through to Maidwell and Spratton Hall prep schools and then Oakham, Uppingham and Leicester Grammar schools.
There is a fast and regular rail service from Market Harborough to London St Pancras in under an hour while the A14, M1 M6 and M69 are all easily accessible.
The barn, which was converted in 2012, has been carefully and beautifully maintained and refurbished by the present owners so that the finish throughout is of a very high quality. In the centre of the home, is the open plan living kitchen which opens out onto the rear garden where there are views of the garden and of the neighbouring lake. The four double bedrooms all have en-suites and the master bedroom suite is magnificent. As well as a run of stables there is excellent garaging with gardens, grounds and paddocks extending in total to 3.5 acres.
The main entrance porch leads into the open plan living kitchen, a particularly bright and spacious room with three sets of doors opening out onto the garden. The beautifully crafted walnut kitchen was designed and constructed by Alexander Lewis Kitchens and benefits from under floor heating and a central island with breakfast bar. Off the kitchen is a useful utility room and cloakroom as well as a study, all also benefiting from under floor heating.
The large drawing room is positioned at the end of the property with plenty of windows allowing lots of natural light to flood through. There are further doors that open out onto the garden. This really attractive room includes a stone fireplace housing a wood burning stove and also benefits from under floor heating.
Well positioned to the other side, are a few steps leading down to the bedroom part of the property, where there are three large double bedrooms, all with en-suites and the master bedroom suite. The master is a truly magnificent room with doors out onto the garden and fitted wardrobes. Leading from the master bedroom is a wonderful en-suite with rain fall shower, double basin and free-standing bath. The en-suite bathroom also benefits from doors that lead onto the garden where there is a conveniently positioned hot tub.
Set well back from the road, Lakeside Farm is accessed via an electric gate and then down a long private driveway. There is plenty of parking to the front of the property as well as an open sided garage and large workshop. To the north of the property is an L shaped stable block with four well maintained stables. Part of this stable block has been converted into a one bedroom annex with separate kitchen and sitting room.
The land wraps around the property on three sides with a large paddock to the front extending to approximately 2 acres. There are several seating places all on sides of the property making the most of the sun throughout the day. The rear garden in particular has been beautifully designed with carefully planted borders and seating areas overlooking the lake. This private garden with an abundance of wildlife is a real haven.
