2020 has brought about so many changes to all our lives. One major change has been the shift to home working. Your daily commute may well have changed from an hour on a packed train to a wander to the spare room and many of us have found working from home more efficient and indeed more pleasant.
But it’s undoubtedly nice to be in a position where “working from home” – or WFH as we’ve all become used to – doesn’t mean your “office” intrudes on the rest of the family and indeed can be shut away so you can try and switch off.
If this is something you dream of then this gorgeous home in Sutton Lane, Dingley, Market Harborough, Leicestershire could be the home for you as the home office is in a separate building being housed above the detached garage. The home office also enjoys amazing views of open countryside so offering inspiration when you need it. For those who are still required to attend their office in London – even if just occasionally – London can be reached by train from nearby Market Harborough in around an hour.
The agent, Andrew Granger & Company, say “A delightfully situated 4 bedroomed 19th Century detached former lodge house with home office/annexe above a triple garage, enjoying spectacular views over surrounding park land and open countryside lying just outside the picturesque village of Dingley, some 3 miles east of the thriving town of Market Harborough.
Built predominantly of stone and Collyweston construction with distinctive stone mullioned windows, this sympathetically extended former lodge house offers wonderfully versatile single storey accommodation retaining a wealth of period features. With the benefit of LPG fired central heating, the interior is approached via an impressive entrance hall with attractive tiled flooring and stripped pine panelled doors off. There is a well proportioned sitting room with high corniced ceiling and cast iron log burner with bespoke folding doors opening onto a superb solid oak conservatory by Vale Garden Houses with a high pitched ceiling, and enjoying stunning views over the gardens and park land beyond. The dining kitchen is superbly appointed with solid granite working surfaces and an Aga, with an adjoining walk-in larder and good sized utility room with Belfast sink.
The gardens are attractively landscaped with an extensive stone paved sun terrace immediately to the rear of the property with gently sloping lawns, further paved patios enjoying views over the Welland Valley. Attractive front gardens, timber garden shed, useful area to side of garage with further wooden storage shed.
The property is beautifully positioned on a quiet country lane between Dingley and Sutton Bassett, surrounded by parkland, and enjoying views over the Welland Valley. The picturesque village of Dingley is renowned for its annual Point to Point and Dingley Hall, a Grade I Listed country house dating back to the Elizabethan era, lying close to the borders of Leicestershire and Northamptonshire, and is located some 3 miles east of the thriving town of Market Harborough, which has mainline rail services to London St Pancras in about an hour. The town has excellent shopping and supermarket facilities, boutique shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, a theatre and leisure centre. Market Harborough also has excellent schools, in addition to which there is private schooling available in the nearby towns of Oakham, Uppingham, Stamford and Oundle.”
