Situated in an elevated position with outstanding views on the very edge of Kegworth and within 12.36 acres, an exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a detached family home with a group of original buildings and offering considerable potential for extension, subject to any planning consents/approvals. Ideal for those wishing to run a business or acquiring storage, the property is ideally located for commuting and access to the village facilities. The property offers mains gas fired central heating, replacement sealed unit double glazing, new roof and currently offers three bedrooms, en-suite shower room and family bathroom.
The Property Kenilworth House has been in the current families ownership since built in the early 1950s. Ideal for those with equestrian or horticultural interests, the property occupies a hilltop setting just outside the village with far reaching views. Kegworth's excellent local facilities and amenities are on the doorstep and the new Kegworth bypass ensures fast access to the M1, the train hub and all the employment centres now developing around the East Midlands Airport. Loughborough, Leicester, Nottingham and Derby are all within easy commuting distance, the M1 providing access to both north and south and the M42 direct access to Birmingham and the south west. The property has been considerably improved over recent years to include the high quality replacement sealed unit double glazing throughout and a completely new roof including fascias and soffits in 2019. The property currently offers three bedrooms but offers considerable potential for extension and remodelling to create further accommodation, subject of course to any necessary consents/approvals. An original group of farm buildings provides further options for those with business interests or requiring storage with the potential to create a new group of buildings if required. The property also offers obvious market gardening and smallholding potential with the an adjacent 8.8 acre field producing a useful rental income and being currently let on an annually renewable lease with a local farmer. The lease has recently been renewed until September 2020.

Situated on the very edge Kegworth with excellent access from the new ringroad, a private drive leads in via a six bar gate to provide hardstanding for a number of vehicles and leading in turn to an integral single garage with double doors, fitted light and power.
The Gardens The front gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with variety of attractive shrubberies, plants and trees and enclosed on all sides by a mature hedge and therefore enjoying excellent privacy, the gardens extend to the side and to the rear of the property again being extensively laid to lawn in addition to which is an orchard with five apple trees. Immediately to the rear is a patio area which extends around the side to a driveway, a further area of hardstanding for caravan/boat etc.
The Farm Buildings The area of farm buildings consists of various lean-to sheds and stores. In addition is:
Large Barn55'9" x 22'4" overall (17m x 6.8m overall). This building has a brick end gable with double doors and is sub-divided with walls and roof of corrugated material.
The Landholding The landholding is extensive and ring fences the property. The largest paddock is currently let on an annually renewable lease to a local farmer with a rent passing of £1,000 per annum. This includes maintenance of the boundary hedges and the paddock has independent access from the new Kegworth bypass. Immediately to the rear of the property is a further area of amenity land with a second gate fronting Whatton Road and beyond, a small spinney of oaks and other mature trees with a range of dilapidated sheds, the land falling away following the line of Whatton Road all the way to the edge of the built up residential edge of the village. The total landholding extends to 12.36 acres and as one would expect a standard development covenant will apply in consideration of any future residential or commercial development. There have been no planning applications made for alternative use on the land. In all, an attractive family home with a significant landholding on the edge of this well serviced village with far reaching elevated views over both the village and surrounding countryside towards Charnwood Forest to the south.
Agents Note As one would expect with a property on the edge of Kegworth, we should point out that the property is situated on the approach to East Midlands Airport.
