Historic house dates back to 16th century



Where: The Grey House, Market Bosworth.


What: A pretty double fronted Grade II house, dating back to the 1500s. It has been lovingly refurbished by its current owners and retains much of its bygone charm. Boasting a wealth of features and originally known as the Manor Farm, this 16th century property was covered by a Regency façade in 1824 and, because of its proximity to the church and market place, there are references to The Grey House in Peter Foss' "The History of Market Bosworth".


Inside: From the reception hall, doors lead off to a comfortable sitting room with exposed beams, an open fire within a most attractive surround, sash windows and window seats. Additionally there is a separate dining room and a snug family room. The breakfast kitchen has an Aga, fitted units beneath granite work tops and bench style seating built into a bay window. There is a pantry and wine cellar too. There are six bedrooms and three bathrooms at The Grey House, arranged over two further floors and accessed via a particularly characterful oak staircase.


Outside: The south westerly facing garden was designed by a Chelsea award winner and have also been the recipient of an " East Midlands in Bloom" prize. Outbuildings include a pair of garages and a workshop.


How much: 1,000,000
