Beth thinks:
She’s an absolute beauty in a great location.

Truly scrumptious in every way, 6 Pear Tree Mews sits amongst a prestigious development of just nine bespoke houses in the heart of a conservation area, with a style as unique as a fingerprint.

Beth loves:
Everything - from top to toe!

The renowned developer, Alexander Bruce Estates, is revered for their quality and craftsmanship and Pear Tree Mews is no exception. No.6 exudes class. Fittings are top-notch, the design is high-end and the overall result is one of pure, unadulterated gorgeousness.

The delightful courtyard of homes is arranged around the former ‘marshalling’ yard and the farm buildings known as 'The Limes'. Despite the idyllic village location, connectivity is first-rate, with the motorway network, the East Coast Main Line and East Midlands Airport all accessible.

With kerb appeal aplenty, you’ll find an oak-framed double carport to complement the style of the home, and accents of natural stone. It’s clear from the outset that No.6 has been curated with impeccable taste. The interior is divine, flowing beautifully from one space to the next. Rooms are generously proportioned, and flooring is a mixture of engineered oak, Travertine or sumptuous ‘sink-your-toes-in’ carpets.

Dramatic ‘Jewel Beetle’ by Little Greene adorns the entrance hallway and welcomes you in. There’s a stylish downstairs cloakroom with a white modern Neptune Chichester washstand and countertop basin. Underfloor heating runs throughout the ground floor and a sustainable Air Source Heat Pump to keep everywhere cosy. Oh, and we love the barn-style doors and shutters too.

The deVOL artisan designed kitchen is utterly sublime. Shaker style cabinetry contrasts with beautiful Silestone worktops, formed from natural quartz. There’s a bespoke prep table and magnificent dresser unit, and quality integrated appliances by Miele. Meanwhile, the colour scheme provides calming hues and enhances this very light and airy space. A reclaimed oak beam in the ceiling delineates the space and adds character and atmosphere. Chores are handled with ease in the boot room, where the deVOL cabinetry mirrors the quality of the kitchen itself.

In the dual aspect lounge, a Nordic woodburning stove by RAIS sits beneath a further reclaimed oak mantel and fills the room with a sense of hygge. The double bifold doors blur the lines between the outside and the in as they open directly onto the garden, a feature that really comes into its own in balmier seasons, where entertaining will be as cool as the drinks.

An atmospheric dining room awaits in the garage conversion. It’s a wonderful space for a midweek family supper or an intimate ‘dinner à deux’ once the kids have gone to bed. There's even potential to create a further space above the garage and extend above the car port, so you can let your imagination run wild here.

Speaking of which, you’ll find three capacious bedrooms just off the first floor landing, including the Principal bedroom. It features an impressive en-suite with contemporary basin and floating cabinet, and bespoke shower. There’s a further double bedroom with built-in wardrobes, and a third bedroom, originally designed as two double bedrooms and now converted into one expansive space.

Lazy wallowing calls in the family bathroom, with its luxury freestanding bath, and you’ll adore the Neptune Chichester washstand with feature countertop basin.

Outside, the garden has been lovingly tended to and features a large patio area for al fresco dining, and a raised lawn for play and relaxation. The wood store for the Nordic stove can be found in one corner, along with a National Trust Blickling shed for the gardeners amongst you. A mixture of mature trees, fruit trees and shrubs features alongside modern ‘hit and miss’ style fencing and Hornbeam hedging. And it’s reassuring to note that Alexander Bruce Estates take great pride in maintaining their developments to ensure public areas are kept spick and span too.

  • Three words :  Gorgeous. Bespoke. Prestigious.

Breedon on the Hill

Well connected

Breedon on the Hill

Breedon on the Hill is a small Leicestershire village, which is strong on community. There are plenty of country walks on tap and the vibrant market town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch is only 5 miles away, with a plethora of well-known high street names, independent shops and supermarkets. The quaint and historic market town of Melbourne is just 3 miles away.

The village is ideally located for commuters with East Midlands Airport, the M1 motorway and East Midlands Parkway railway station (direct to London) all within 15 minutes’ journey time. The larger cities of Derby, Nottingham, Leicester and Birmingham are all a short distance away.

The village is home to the St Hardulph’s C of E Primary School, which has a good reputation for early years education. And a little further afield, Ashby has a number of well-regarded schools, which cater for older children.

Try the Bay Tree Restaurant in Melbourne for fine dining, and the Three Horseshoes in Breedon for Sunday lunch with all the trimmings. In Repton, the Bulls Head and the Boot Inn are well worth a stop.

There are some great days out to be had with National Trust’s Calke Abbey nearby, along with Melbourne Hall, Donington Park race circuit, Foremark Reservoir, Twycross Zoo, Breedon Priory Health Club and Staunton Harold Hall and Reservoir all easily accessible. There’s also an excellent choice of country parks to walk off that Sunday roast!
