The Property
Lower Leesthorpe Farm is a most attractive residential farm of generous proportions that encompasses a panoramic scenic view across Leicestershire and Rutland countryside. The farm comprises a period four bedroom, Georgian farmhouse, one bedroom self contained annex / holiday let, an extensive range of farm buildings including a sizeable barn and is set within approximately 9.8 acres of land. An additional 36 acres (approximately) is also available to purchase by separate negotiation.

The farmhouse, which is not listed, is located on the edge of Leesthorpe and borders the western edge of Rutland. The house sits in a elevated position surrounded by wonderful gardens, a small orchard and two natural ponds. There are three separate entrances with a dedicated gate leading to the farmland. Part of the farmland boundary follows the natural line of a stream which has a small waterfall feature, offering a place of peace and tranquillity.

The farm buildings and annex both lie beside the farmhouse without impinging on the house itself. The traditional farm buildings are an attractive and important part of the farm. They are approached from the side drive to the farm and are therefore independent from the farmhouse. The buildings are positioned around a gated courtyard and offer a variety of use. There is considerable potential for conversion of some of the outbuildings for further residential use, subject to obtaining planning permission. Furthermore there are significant brick buildings which include a 100ft workshop, livestock buildings and feed room. All are suitable for modern, mainly livestock farming or for alternative use subject to planning permission. In addition there is a large barn which is clear and a four bay Dutch barn which offers further sheltered storage.

There is a Dutch barn for sheltered storage of farmland vehicles / hay and a barn / commercial unit which is clear and offers scope to create an internal layout to suit required use.

The first floor presents an open plan living room with kitchen. There is a generous, sheltered area outside the property that can be used for a number of storage / entertaining purposes.
