Kirby Bellars is situated in the renowned Wreake Valley off the A607 Melton to Leicester Road. The main road goes past the village rather than through it, the main street is a no-through road leading eventually to the ancient village church.

The village is particularly well placed for fast access to Leicester and Loughborough.

The Property 
The Manor is one of Melton Mowbray's most significant landmark properties. It is a substantial stone property with a fascinating past, at one time having been a restaurant. Situated behind The Manor is a detached four bedroom stone property built at the same time known as Park Farm Cottage. The access to the cottage has for some time been shared with a semi-commercial building at the rear and the owners of the cottage have since received permission to create a new access from Main Road, crossing the stunning paddocks adjacent to the cottage to provide a completely new approach to the house. The property is in need of general upgrading and modernisation and plans have been previously produced to extent the property substantially. Steeped in history, the site has been of significant interest to archaeologists over the years and the 7.04 acres of paddocks which accompany the cottage are home to the foundations of Kirby Hall, home of the Beler family, which was a (truncated)

Outside 
This fascinating stone cottage benefits from a considerable landholding and equally impressive range of buildings. There is a right of way over a new access which has been formed from the A607 to the cottage which leads in across the adjacent field. AGENTS NOTE: Those viewing the cottage can use the current shared drive to the right of The Manor which leads into the rear to the cottage and to the large outbuilding. It is anticipated that purchasers will produce a new driveway across the fields via the access gate from the A607 to servicing the cottage, producing a new parking area and possibly garaging in place of the existing outbuildings - subject to planning. The vendors inform us that the new access has been discussed wit the local planning Authority for the cottage who have indicated there is no need for a formal application as the curb is dropped, and the access exists so is permitted,as long as the new drive is of a permable materail. Purchasers should make (truncated)

Outbuildings 
The rear outbuildings are extensive and comprise the following:

The Factory 
75' 6" x 44' 7"
The factory is currently let with a tenant vacating prior to completion of the sale of the property and offers 3 phase electricity and commercial height doors and a ridge height of approximately 10m. The building would be of particular use for those with commercial vehicles, other hobbies or interests, however it is expected that most purchasers will wish to demolish the factory to facilitate a substantial extension and create gardens to the cottage, which will then take advantage of open views over the paddocks.

Adjacent Open Front Barn 
49' 3" x 42' 8"
Sectioned into four large stables. Situated immediately adjacent to the cottage are an excellent range of original stone outbuildings comprising two stables and an original separate ground floor apartment comprising a living room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lobby, all detailed on the floorplans for the property. Other useful outbuildings comprise and brick built range of four further large stables, a range of former concrete piggeries and a timber built stable block of three large stables, thus providing the potential for stabling for 11 horses, all with a turning out area and access onto the adjacent paddocks.

Paddocks 
A particular feature of this historic property is the substantial adjacent landholding, which extends to a total of 7.04 acres. The new access leads in from main road to three adjacent grass paddocks, one being the historic former site of Kirby Hall, complete with moat. The cottage is situated immediately behind Kirby Gate, one of Melton Mowbray's historic local landmark properties. Given the number of buildings, there is considerable potential for garaging, a selection of further outbuildings to include garaging, further stabling and equestrian facilities if required. An equestrian purchaser may wish to convert the garage into an indoor riding school for example. All the above clearly will require the appropriate planning consents/approvals.

Viewing 
Viewing is strictly by appointment. Proceeding from Melton Mowbray on the A607 towards Leicester, The Manor can be found on the right hand side, approximately 500 metres from the village. Turn right just before The Manor into the track, which serves the car business to the rear and the cottage and parking is between the cottage and the large barn/'factory'. It is proposed that this access will be closed off when the new drive is installed.

Agents Note 
Viewers are invited to inspect the property by using the existing driveway to the right hand side of The Manor. It is anticipated that purchasers will wish to create the new driveway from crossing the paddock from the main road where a gate has been improved and enhanced for this purpose.
