Recently voted the ''Best House in Leicestershire' by a panel of BBC judges, this bespoke family home was lovingly designed and built by the current owners 4 years ago. Their love of simplicity, coupled with modern design that embraces and understands the landscape, is evident in every detail of this unique property. But creative minds never sit still for long and, with new projects beckoning, we are delighted to assist them in their journey by offering 49 Snells Nook Lane to the open market.
Tucked away on the edge of the exclusive village of Nanpantan, your approach to the property immediately makes you feel you are part of something special. As you enter the driveway the single detached garage is to your left and the gravelled frontage provides ample parking in front of this individual home. The Scandinavian-inspired house is clad with untreated Siberian Larch which has silvered naturally to suit its position in the surrounding landscape. Entering through the solid oak door surrounded by glazed panels, a light, spacious and airy reception hall greets you and the owners' mid-century furnishings give an immediate sense of the style throughout the home. Stairs to the first floor, a w/c and doors to all the ground floor rooms radiate from this central hub. The spacious living dining kitchen, with extended ceiling height, is the jewel of the home; the heart of modern family life. The kitchen area, with bespoke cupboard and drawer fronts, combines deep drawer units & open shelves with a range style cooker, extractor & dishwasher included in the sale. A polished concrete floor is a nod to an industrial feel, with underfloor heating adding warmth. Wide, bifold doors lead onto generous hardwood decking and overlook the garden with its far reaching views. A comfortable living area completes the room.
A utility/boot room gives extra space with plumbing for a washing machine and tumble-dryer, and a large utilitarian sink. A family/study room provides an additional reception room or could be a further bedroom if desired. We then have a double bedroom with ensuite shower room giving flexible accommodation for a teenager or as a guest room. The sitting room has a light and airy feel with widows to the front and French doors to the enclosed side garden which has been landscaped with a variety of well stocked plants and grasses to provide seasonal colour. There is also a second driveway to this side of the property providing additional parking.
To the first floor, all the rooms lead off the galleried landing. The master bedroom suite is a haven of tranquillity, having a spacious dressing area with shelving and hanging space, ensuite bathroom with a double walk in shower, large basin incorporated onto a bespoke shelving unit & a low flush wc.

Two further double bedrooms, one of which includes access to the eaves storage and boiler, complete the accommodation.
