Abbots Oak is an imposing Grade II Listed detached dwelling with its origins in the 17th Century. Whilst in need of a full programme of renovation and modernisation, the house has
great charm and a wealth of original features.
The main reception rooms contain many period features such as ornate fireplaces, panelled walls, fine cornices, boarded or Terrazzo tiled floors and window shutters, and the magnificent carved staircase is the main feature of the building.
The house has been a family home for many years, and latterly was run as a small Country House Hotel. After the required works are completed, the property gives the buyer
the opportunity to benefit from a large family kitchen, stunning reception rooms, various bedroom suites and ample ancillary accommodation. Alternatively a variety of other business uses could be considered subject to planning consent.
Stone steps lead into the entrance vestibule and on into the entrance hall and reception hall with their splendid Terrazzo tiled flooring and the magnificent oak staircase with its ornate carving.
The four main reception rooms have spectacular fireplaces, some with oak panelling, one having herringbone pattern oak flooring, and another with double doors to the garden.
Domestic offices include the kitchen, further sitting room, pantry, large cloakroom with WC, a cool shelved larder and laundry room and provide great flexibility for creating superb
family accommodation or for business use.
The main staircase rises to the first floor landing, from which the principal bedrooms and bathrooms are reached. Many of the rooms have fireplaces with cast iron grates and
views over the gardens and countryside beyond.
A further staircase leads to the tower room and out onto the rooftop from which the views are breathtaking.
Abbots Oak is situated on the edge of the beautiful Charnwood Forest. The Grade II Listed stone, brick and slate house occupies
a hill top location with stunning views from the tower and is surrounded by open countryside, yet the proximity of the A50 and the M1 Motorway means that communications are excellent with good access to the major centres of employment such as Leicester, Loughborough, Nottingham and Birmingham.
Trains from Leicester reach London St Pancras in about 75 minutes and East Midlands
airport is about 11 miles away. The M1 (Junction 22) is around 2.5 miles distant, with this link also giving quick access to the M69 and
The house is well placed for excellent schooling to Ratcliffe College, the highly-regarded Catholic school, and other well-known private
schools in the area include Rugby, Oakham, Uppingham and Oundle, alongside excellent Grammar Schools in Loughborough and Leicester.
There are golf courses at East Goscote (Beedles Lake Golf Centre with coarse fishing too), Rothley, Seagrave, Woodhouse, and
Leicester. There is canoeing and angling on the River Wreake, and hunting is with the Quorn, while the Belvoir and Cottesmore are within reasonable boxing distance.
Swithland Reservoir and Bradgate Park offer wonderful walking opportunities in scenic
surroundings, and Rutland Water is also within travelling distance with fishing, sailing, and other water sports, as well as wild life nature
trails and cycling. Donington Park race track is 12 miles away.
There is an interesting bothy with garaging and storage on the ground floor and an exterior staircase (not presently usable) to a large first floor room.
