Silverdale was originally built in 1971 but has been extended to provide an external floor area of approximately 234 sq m (2518 sq ft). It offers spacious and well-proportioned accommodation arranged over two storeys and enjoys westerly countryside views to the rear within a plot size of just over a third of an acre. The house is situated opposite the Church of England Primary school and has views of the 13th-century village church to the southwest. Offering great potential for further extension and improvement. With a modest investment, this property is capable of achieving a market value in excess of a million pounds.
Church Langton stands on the road from Market Harborough to Melton Mowbray. Whilst the house is situated near the heart of this historic village, it is outside the conservation area. There are numerous scenic walks around the village and many fine bridle paths nearby.
The entrance porch leads to a hallway providing access to the ground floor rooms. Extensions to the rear enlarged the lounge, dining room and breakfast kitchen and there is a useful study, WC and a side lobby leading to the adjoining double garage.
To the first floor, the galleried landing leads to four double bedrooms, three of which overlook the rear garden with extensive views over the surrounding countryside and beautiful sunsets. The master bedroom has been extended and includes an ensuite shower room and there is also a family bathroom.
Silverdale is set well back from the road and is approached via a long gravel drive which provides parking for several vehicles. The front garden is lawned with a beautiful Acer tree as a centrepiece. A double garage adjoins the house to the left and there is gated access from both sides of the house to the rear garden.
The magnificent westerly facing rear garden is predominantly lawned has been landscaped with an ornamental pond and rockery. It has been sympathetically planted with a wide variety of established trees and shrubs providing ample privacy and colour all year round. To the rear, the garden opens onto farmland with views across to Tur Langton and the sunsets are stunning. Outbuildings include a brick built store and timber-framed garden shed.
