Full Property Description

November Cottage is conveniently situated within close proximity of a wide selection of local amenities to be found within nearby villages, notably Rothley and Birstall. A more comprehensive range of professional, recreational and retail services can be easily accessed in nearby regional centres including Loughborough and Leicester. The village is serviced by excellent transportation / road links, being only minutes driving distance from the A46, A6, M1 and circa 5.8 miles to Leicester railway station. The area further benefits from inclusion within the recognised catchment areas of a number of well regarded schools, and convenient access to Bradgate Park. Set in a quiet cul de sac, next to a former Tudor rectory, November Cottage was formerly three thatched cottages and is believed to date back to the 18th century. This Grade II listed building has been lovingly restored over a period of years to create a beautifully appointed family home. Worthy of further note is the availability of ‘superfast fibre’ broadband, with download speeds up to and surpassing 200mbs.
