Medbourne & surrounding area
Medbourne is an unspoiled traditional English village in the heart of the Welland Valley. The village is truly picturesque with many charming ironstone properties, mature trees and a stream running through the centre. This delightful village also offers an excellent range of facilities.
As well as a great village store and post office there is the highly popular pub, The Nevill Arms which includes a restaurant and café. There is also an active sports centre with tennis and cricket club, both of which offer coaching for children. The village hall has a daily pre-school. In the centre of the village is the pretty church.
Surrounding the village are some really wonderful rural walks and bridle ways, including at nearby Nevill Holt where the award winning summer Opera Festival is gaining national recognition. Also nearby there is some excellent fly fishing to be had at nearby Eyebrook Reservoir and Rutland Water.
Nearby Market Harborough offers a superb range of shopping and leisure facilities including supermarkets, bespoke shops as well as a sports centre and theatre. A mainline train station operates from Market Harborough with services to London St Pancras taking approximately 60 minutes.
Schooling in the area is excellent with primary in Bringhurst and
secondary in Uppingham. There are also many choices of independent schools including Oakham, Uppingham, Leicester Grammar, Oundle and Stamford.
Eyebrook House is beautifully designed and constructed brand new home with Georgian detailing by the highly regarded craftsmen builders Walter Ward Country Homes. It combines elegant design with modern technology including under floor heating, bi-fold doors and solar thermal hot water.
Materials used are of the highest quality including Welsh slate roof, traditional lime based render, Clipsham stone window frames, door surrounds and chimneys. Similarly the inside is finished to a high specification and the principal rooms all have delightful views across landscaped gardens and the Welland Valley beyond.
Grounds & Gardens
Great care has been taken with the landscaping to provide a suitably formal setting for the house, while providing ample space for relaxed family life and entertaining. Eyebrook House is approached from Drayton Road along a bonded gravel driveway, with estate fencing leading to a parking area at the rear of the house with a timber clad double garage. A York paved pathway leads to the back door and around the house to a large paved terrace wrapping around the house on two sides, with a lawned area beyond. The lawn sweeps around the garden room to the front of the house and is separated from the paddock beyond by a new post and rail fence.
