Nestled off Station Road in the village of Cropston, outside Leicester, The White Lodge hides a secret.

The traditional period exterior is just a front for a truly stunning modern interior that includes everything from a sauna to a swimming pool.

But the traditional side isn't ignored either - with an Aga in the kitchen and romantic fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom.

And that's before we get to the incredible 1.27 acres of land to go with the cellar, out buildings and 5,300 square feet of living space.

"Spanning several centuries, The White Lodge combines an exciting clash of architectural styles with accommodation to includes four reception rooms, heavily glazed, double height garden room and a fully bespoke family kitchen with AGA," the estate agent description reads.

"On the first floor are four double bedrooms and three lavishly appointed bathrooms including sauna.

"The second staircase offers the option for those seeking separate guest accommodation and a range of outbuildings offer extensive garaging and scope for conversion subject to the relevant approvals.

"A truly unique opportunity in today's market and early viewing is essential to fully appreciate the quality and level of accommodation on offer."

The property is just 5.4miles from Leicester, and there are 4 train stations within a few miles and the M1 and M69 are withing 10 miles.

The village is on the edge of Bradgate Park between Leicester and Loughborough, with Charnwood Forest offering countryside walks and beauty spots such as Beacon Hill.

There are also two village pubs in walking distance and bus stops just outside.

Upstairs there are three big double bedrooms in the main house, a big family bathroom, and an en-suite one attached to the master bedroom.

The fourth bedroom works as a guest suite - or potentially Airbnb rental - with its own separate staircase and a free-standing roll top bath.

The property is on the market for £1.1m and you can see the full details here.
