ASK TO SEE THE VIDEO TOUR! Just 30 years young but built to replicate a Georgian Mansion, this imposing and handsome property is sure to turn heads. With a Double Garage to the fore, including Driveway parking for up to 3 vehicles currently (but for 5-6 prior to the attractive Front Garden borders being installed), we meander through the flower lined pathways up to the welcoming Portico, an impressive canopy porch with plain columns. Then on into the generous Entrance Hall, a grand entrance to a grand house with excellent cloakroom storage and a guest Downstairs Cloakroom. To the left we have the formal Dining Room, to the right a similarly sized large Study or Home Office. Beyond we have the Lounge, with an elegant and realistic remote controlled living flame gas fire in a focal feature fireplace and double doors opening onto the beautiful Rear Gardens, bringing the outside into your home. At the rear of the property is the Breakfast Kitchen or Kitchen Diner, with a beautiful range of American Oak wall and base units with contrasting black granite worktops, upstands and breakfast bar. Additional units around the room incorporate larder storage and space for an American fridge freezer and there is an impressive drinks cabinet. Integral elements include dishwasher, microwave, double oven, 5-ring gas hob with extractor hood, recycling bins and corner unit pullout storage. All finished off with beautiful Karndean wooden effect flooring. A connecting door leads seamlessly through to a matching Utility Room offering an extra sink and plumbing for a washing machine plus side door access, ideal for dog owners.

To the first floor there are 4 generous Double Bedrooms and the Family Bathroom. The principal Bedroom to the rear is spacious and has a large Ensuite Shower Room enjoying underfloor heating. Bedroom 2 is also to the rear and again has an Ensuite Shower Room. Bedrooms 3 & 4 are both good sized Double Bedrooms to the front of the property. The Family bathroom has both a bath and a separate shower enclosure and also enjoys underfloor heating. Outside, the Rear Gardens are the product of a great deal of love, care and attention, with established borders enveloping a central lawn, an upper patio area for dining and there is a sizeable working garden discreetly tucked away at the rear with a greenhouse, shed and vegetable beds. the Double Garage to the front will take 2 vehicles and has a motorised panelled up and over door plus rear personnel door.

The original hamlet of Sketchley is ideally situated within 20 minutes walk of Windsor Street, home to several excellent Pubs and Restaurants in the heart of Burbage village, as well as a great Chip Shop! There are 2 hotels with leisure and spa facilities within half a mile and there is a popular local store with a Post Office nearby. Burbage holds a Farmers Market on the first Saturday of every month and many annual events, including a Carnival and a Bonfire & Fireworks display. Burbage is a very popular village within the larger urban area of Hinckley which offers a regular market, a vast array of shops and restaurants and the exciting £80 million cinema and retail complex, The Crescent. The current regeneration of Hinckley Town Centre also includes a new Leisure Centre which opened in Spring 2016. Hinckley railway station, with its links to Leicester, Birmingham and beyond, is just a short 20-minute walk away.

Currently, there are no formal restrictions to viewings, however agents, homeowners and viewers are advised to observe good hygiene practices at all times, including regular hand washing, sanitising & cleaning. Where physical viewings go ahead, the following applies: No viewing should take place if any person living in a property for sale or rent, is showing symptoms of Coronavirus or self-isolating or if you have been asked to self-isolate due to being in close contact with someone who has Coronavirus. There are no limits on the numbers of people who can attend a viewing, but it is advisable to continue to keep numbers to a minimum. Face coverings are expected and recommended in indoor spaces where you come into contact with people you do not normally meet Viewings can be attended by people from different households, but it is advisable to keep the number of different households attending to a minimum. Minimise contact with door handles, cupboard doors and other surfaces. The use of hand sanitiser before entering and when leaving a property is recommended. If available, we strongly encourage clients to view properties virtually in the first instance and then only request physical viewings for properties that you have a strong interest in. You may be asked to provide further information about your position in the market and your ability to purchase or rent the property before a physical viewing can be confirmed. Please do be prepared for this. This means that if you need to sell your house to move, we may ask you if you have your house on the market for sale or if it is ready to be advertised for sale, within a few days of your viewing. And where a mortgage is required, arrangements have been made to obtain a Decision in Principle from a Mortgage Lender. We can help with selling your home or finding the right mortgage for you, or you can make your own arrangements. If on the day of your viewing you are suffering any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19 such as a high temperature (above 38 degrees), a persistent cough or loss of the sense of smell, please do not attend the viewing.
