Full description

A landmark Grade II Listed country house of historic significance occupying an elevated position facing south west with far reaching views.

Background - Billesdon Coplow is a significant Leicestershire landmark and by virtue of the prominent position and distinctive tree line that can be seen on the horizon throughout Leicestershire. The Coplow has Georgian origins with later editions resulting in an extremely attractive family home. It is sheltered from the north east from an area of woodland known as The Coplow' and is entered through stone pillars with a sweeping driveway through parkland.

Accommodation - The accommodation is typified by delightfully proportioned reception rooms leading from an impressive entrance hall with much of the original joinery, fireplaces and decorative plaster work intact. The accommodation is arranged over three floors, with a third floor originally used as staff accommodation but now currently used as storage as it is easily self-contained.

The principle accommodation comprises an entrance hall, sitting room, billiards room/study, drawing room, dining room, excellent range of cloakrooms, a butler's pantry, a delightful living kitchen, stores and excellent wine cellarage.

On the first floor is a master bedroom with a large en-suite bathroom and dressing room, three further bathrooms and five bedrooms. A further range of bedrooms originally conceived as an annexe comprises two further rooms and bathroom considered suitable for a family annexe or staff. On the second floor are four further bedrooms, bathrooms and WC's (requiring refurbishment).

Outside - The plot comprises of formal gardens, terracing, parkland and woodland totalling approximately 20 acres or thereabouts. To the rear of the property is a large parking area, garaging, workshops and storage. Adjacent to the west wing of the house is a substantial indoor swimming pool with orangery off (requiring refurbishment).
