A handsome and charming country home with around 7500 ft² of generously proportioned accommodation in need of modernisation. Keythorpe Court sits in an elevated position within approx. 2.5 acres of its own grounds, taking in far reaching views over the Leicestershire countryside.
The property's accommodation is arranged over four floors. An external staircase rises from the driveway up to the first floor where the front door opens into a large entrance hall giving access to the living accommodation. There is a kitchen/breakfast room with a generous range of floor-standing and wall-mounted units, an AGA, electric oven with hob, Belfast sink, ample space for white goods, windows to two elevations and a door opening out to a garden and patio at the side of the property.
There are two main reception rooms, the living room to the front and the dining room to the rear. Both rooms have high ceilings with coving, deep skirting boards and large windows allowing plenty of light. The living room has a fireplace with wood burning stove inset and the dining room an open fire. The first floor continues with two further reception rooms, one that is currently set up as a study with an open fire and large sash window. The other, historically used as a treatment room/dressing room with a shower and sink. With the accommodation being so expansive, it offers the next owner great opportunity to utilise it in a range of different ways.
Stairs rise from the entrance hall to the second-floor landing giving access to the main bedroom accommodation. The principal bedroom has three windows on two sides with views, a feature fireplace and a large walk-in wardrobe. Bedroom two also sits to the South side of the property with two large windows and built-in storage. There are two further bedrooms on the second floor, both good sized double rooms with large windows and feature fireplaces. There are two large bathrooms on this floor serving all four bedrooms. On the third floor of the property, accessed via a staircase from the second-floor landing, all the rooms are empty with potential to make them into further bedrooms and bathrooms. Pipe work and electrics in place.
The property's accommodation is completed by a large ground-level cellar, accessed either through double doors from the driveway or a staircase from the first-floor entrance hall. The cellar comprises four large rooms of which the current owner uses one as a utility room.
The property is approached via a long, tree-lined driveway leading through double gates onto a large private courtyard providing ample parking and a detached double garage. Keythorpe Court offers a wonderful amount of outside space with a range of patio and garden areas, a pool area with disused swimming pool and a paddock all sitting within approximately 2.5 acres.
Keythorpe Court really does offer a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a significant country home that would benefit from a scale of modernisation and renovation throughout. It sits in the heart of some of South East Leicestershire's prettiest rolling countryside with stunning views to the South and must be viewed to be appreciated.
