Billesdon - Leicester
An Exceptional Architect Designed And Sustainable Eco-Friendly Detached Property With Outbuildings Including A Huge Entertainment Complex/Annexe
4.59 ACRES (stms) - Situated in a rural location at the end of a country lane along with three other prestige properties, this circa 4,779 sq ft property is immaculately presented and ready to move straight into. Frisby is a tiny rural hamlet between Gaulby and Billesdon, the latter providing a wide range of amenities including a primary school, GPs surgery, public houses, post office, village store and active community centre. This area is very well served by the market towns and the city of Leicester within an easy drive. The property was built to the current owners very high specification and provides everything one would expect from a large luxury executive home.
Approached off the private driveway the front entrance door located to the centre of the house opens to the entrance lobby which leads to an impressive double height atrium hallway with a full height glass wall overlooking the gardens and views beyond. Off the hallway is a cloakroom and a cantilevered staircase leading to the first floor. The superb open plan living kitchen has a comprehensive range of custom built units with granite worktops and all ‘mod cons’ including a boiling water tap, twin electric double ovens, fridge, freezer, microwave, steam cooker, dual gas and ceramic hob, teppanyaki grill, induction cooking hotplate and an integrated dishwasher. A breakfast bar links the kitchen space with the dining area with matching granite 12 seater dining table, an entire wall of folding glass doors providing views over the grounds and views beyond. Off the kitchen is a useful utility room with Rangemaster gas cooker and there is the benefit of a cellar providing excellent storage space. The main reception room is a contemporary space fitted with an open log burner fire and enjoys panoramic views across the gardens by virtue of a glass wall of folding doors. Steps lead down to a study area. Steps lead up to a guest suite comprising two double bedrooms, each with sliding doors opening directly onto the gardens. There is also a luxuriously appointed bathroom with Jacuzzi bath. On the first floor is a stunning galleried sitting room with magnificent views across the grounds and surrounding countryside. Steps lead down to an inner lobby with a single bedroom or dressing room. The principal bedroom suite has folding doors to a wide balcony overlooking the gardens and there is a dressing room and an en-suite shower room with delightful views. There are two further double bedroom suites on the first floor with en suite shower rooms and another guest bathroom.
The property is set back off the lane and approached via twin farmgates opening to an extensive private driveway with parking and turning space for numerous vehicles and access to the front door and to the entertaining complex which has attached lean-to covered vehicles storage. To the rear of the house is a wooden decking area linking to the outdoor entertaining space set out over three levels with a central circular seating area taking best advantage of the uninterrupted countryside views. Also to the rear, there is further vehicular access to the grounds and outbuildings. Planning consents (now lapsed) had been granted to move (out of sight of the main house) the substantial steel framed barn used for garaging and there was also under the same consent, permission for the conversion of a range of derelict outbuildings into stables. Both planning consents have now lapsed and would need to be re-submitted for approval. The grounds to the side and rear are just over 4.5 acres and provide a delightful backdrop to this unique property. There is level pasture land ideal for grazing and two small ponds to the bottom of the land.
The Entertainment Complex
Detached from the main house, and includes a snooker room with fully fitted bar, reception room, gymnasium and home cinema. There is also a guest or staff suite comprising a double bedroom and en suite shower room. To the rear is a covered area for additional storage and a plant room with heating and water controls. Adjoining lean-to vehicle storage.
