The property occupies a prominent and imposing position in the popular village of Thrussington, offering an idyllic village lifestyle whilst retaining good links to Leicester, Loughborough, Melton Mowbray and beyond.
Thrussington is a village and civil parish in the Charnwood borough of Leicestershire and originated as a Danish settlement alongside the River Wreake. Currently the village has approximately 550 inhabitants and boasts an OFSTED 'outstanding' primary school, a delicatessen, a tearoom, a hairdresser and two public houses and restaurants (The Star and the Blue Lion). The renowned Ratcliffe College is nearby and a bus service takes students to Loughborough Grammar School. The Holy Trinity church is situated in Church Lane and is thought to be of Norman origin.
Thrussington lies approximately one mile from the recently redoubled A46 trunk road, with travelling times of approximately fifteen minutes to J23 of the M1, twenty minutes to Leicester city centre and thirty minutes to Nottingham. There is a bus service through the village which provides a link to both Leicester and Melton Mowbray and the rail network can be accessed at either Sileby and Syston (4 miles) for local trains to Nottingham, Derby and Leicester or Leicester (10 miles) for direct non-stop trains to London St. Pancras.
