**Outstanding Landmark House **Prime Central Market Bosworth Location **Beautiful Mature Gardens **Considerable Privacy **Building Plot Potential
General - The Garden House is a landmark property in a stunning location just a few steps away from the Market Place and it is a rare event for a house of this quality to come onto the market in central Market Bosworth. The house which is set in approximately 0.35 acres was very much a collaboration between the present owner and the late Alan Spencer, a highly regarded Market Bosworth architect. The striking Lutyens design allows for a spacious well lit interior, taking full advantage of the views over the gardens and Market Bosworth. There is potential to further develop the plot as planning permission has previously been granted for a separate dwelling, albeit this has since lapsed. Although the house is just a few steps from the Market Square, it is incredibly private. The accommodation briefly includes an absolutely magnificent drawing room with fabulous views, a large living kitchen, dining room/snug, conservatory, utility and bathroom. There is a magnificent master bedroom suite with spacious dressing room and two further bedrooms.
Location - Market Bosworth is one of the most well regarded and exclusive towns in West Leicestershire. The town services a wide area and is locally considered to be one of the most desirable locations to live. There is a traditional market every Wednesday as well as a Farmers Market that is held on the fourth Sunday of every month. The town is home to one of the area's leading private schools The Dixie Grammar and there is also a Primary and a High School (The High School has been classified as outstanding by OFSTED).
