About this property
An historic village home, listed Grade II, with great character and dating to the 17th Century, set in grounds of approximately three acres.
An outstanding period property, listed Grade II, with a fascinating history, Keyham Hall is understood to originally date back to 1640 with later 19th century additions. Original architectural features are preserved throughout, with mullioned windows, flagstone floors and an impressive oak staircase contributing just some of the character.
The striking drawing room features high ceilings with ornate coved cornicing and plasterwork to the walls, with a marble fireplace and decorative panelled walls, and the adjacent dining room is panelled in oak, with original stone fireplace and ornate log burning stove.
A large living kitchen is a particular feature, with glazed lantern introducing abundant light, set over bi-folding doors onto the terrace, and a central island/breakfasting bar, which is complemented by a range of handmade units and granite work surface over. A gas fired Aga is set to one end of the kitchen, with further range of pan drawers and eye level cupboards. Adjacent is a useful study area and cloakroom. Also off the kitchen, a cosy family room, with down to the extensive cellars.
From an inner hallway, a door leads through to a substantial outbuilding which currently houses the utility room. This could, subject to the relevant consents, be brought into the main house, or create a guest wing or annexe.
To the first floor, five bedrooms, one of which is a through room which would make an excellent dressing room, and two well sized bathrooms. The principal bedroom benefits from a good range of built in wardrobes, and has attractive views over the gardens towards the church, and to the valley beyond. To the second floor, a wide landing leads to a further three bedrooms, dressing room and a bathroom, plus separate shower.
Keyham Hall is approached via automated gates over a long gravelled driveway through extensive gardens, past an orchard to the right of the driveway, and to a parking area next to the triple garage.
The formal gardens lie to the south and east, gently sloping away from the front of the house, with stocked shrub, herbaceous rose and lavender borders, and fine specimen trees including a Wellingtonia, Yews, and to one side, a small spinney.
Adjacent to the living kitchen is a flagstone terrace, with heated swimming pool, entertaining area taking full advantage of the sunny aspect, with a walkway covered with climbing plants creating a shaded area perfect for summer days.
Keyham has a thriving sociable community with parish Church, public house, village hall and has numerous attractive village homes of architectural significance. The village is exceptionally well placed for neighbourhood amenities in nearby Billesdon and Syston, and wider range of facilities in Leicester city centre and in the market towns at Oakham, Uppingham and Market Harborough. The area is regarded by the equestrian community, hunting with the Fernie and Cottesmore and is well served by many bridleways and lanes. The area Keyham is well placed for local schooling with Stoneygate and Leicester Grammar in Great Glen, Leicester High School in Leicester and Loughborough Grammar, Oakham and Uppingham Schools within 15 miles
