Description

Church Farm House is an exquisite, detached, period property that boasts over 10,000sqft of bright, commodious, and luxurious living space. Nestled in one of Leicestershire's most sought-after villages of Elmesthorpe, this home offers endless opportunities not to be missed.

History

Church Farm House sits on the site of the former Hall of the Manor of Elmesthorpe; it is thought that King Richard III and his soldiers spent some time in and around the church, a few feet from the front of the home, on their way from Leicester to the anticipated confrontation with Henry Tudor's army near Hinckley before the Battle of Bosworth. In the early 17th century, on this site, in addition to the already-ruined church, stood a massive timber Hall set in vast pleasure grounds with several fish ponds, many of which still exist today. The hall is said to have been destroyed by fire after the English Civil War (1642 to 1651). The very first part of the farmhouse was constructed around 1710, and it is known that some of the structural timberwork from the Hall was reused in the building, which can still be used today. The home was later expanded by renowned resident Mr. Richard Fowke, an avid historian who reportedly maintained a magnificent museum in the house. The house was expanded during the Victorian period and remained the focal point of a working farm until it was purchased by the Land Settlement Association in 1935. In 1970, it was sold again as a working farm; in the 1980s, the farm was dismantled, and the building became a private grammar school. It was turned back into a country home in 1999, and the current owners have elevated it further with a combination of character and contemporary design to the magnificent family home you see today.

The Home

Sitting on a large plot, approximately 0.9 acres, Church Farm House is an exquisite, detached, period property that boasts over 10,000sqft of bright, commodious, and luxurious living space. Nestled in one of Leicestershire's most sought-after villages of Elmesthorpe, this home offers an exciting opportunity not to be missed. The home is accessible by electronically controlled gates that lead to a large courtyard with plenty of parking and entry to the triple garage found towards the back of the home. With mature trees and the iconic church where King Richard III and his troops spent the night, the house is well screened from the road.

As you step into the home, you are greeted by a large reception hall with exposed Tudor timber and a feature staircase which creates a superb first impression and provides access to all of the rooms on the ground floor.

The lounge strikes an amazing blend of past and present with the newly installed log-burning fireplace, hardwood flooring, and neutral colour scheme. The room benefits from plenty of natural light from the double-glazed windows and multi-pane double-glazed French doors.

The sitting area provides a stunning and clear view of the church through the double-glazed windows. The room also possesses an original early 10th Century style fireplace which has been very well maintained.

The family room is screaming out for a conversion into a playroom, complete with electrical outlets and an internet access point conveniently located; ready for an amazing gaming/entertainment hub and the sliding twofold coated doors that open up to the swimming pool.

The indoor pool is one of the greatest highlights in the house. It is roughly 2m deep and the temperature can be easily controlled. A historical well was discovered inside the room's perimeter, so a wonderful and unique character feature was developed in order to view the preserved well.

The dining room, neighbouring the lounge, additionally makes use of the wood-burning fireplace, making it a warm component when dining with loved ones. This room additionally leads out to the open-plan kitchen/breakfast area.

The kitchen is fitted with a scope of extremely high-quality, custom-built oak cabinetry with high-end quartz countertops and a promontory breakfast bar. There is a gas point for a range-style cooker with oak overmantel, extractor, and a steel sink with garbage disposal. The integrated appliances compromise a dishwasher and refrigerator. There are French doors opening onto the gardens, fitted LED spotlights, ceramic tiled flooring with under-floor heating, and exposed roof timbers.

The ground floor bathroom is adjacent to the kitchen and has been upgraded to an exceptional degree, preserving the historical character while adding a contemporary touch.

The utility room gives admittance to the second hallway prompting changing space for friends and family to get changed before they utilise the pool.

Heading once again into the grand entrance hallway, you can discover an entryway, under the flight of stairs, which prompts the cellar. Brick and stone steps lead down to a progression of vaulted cellars and there is obvious proof of the remaining parts of the former Elmesthorpe Hall.

First Floor

Four of the seven rooms can be accessed on the main floor of this lavish home. While all rooms on this floor utilize the family bathroom, the sheer size of every room flaunts potential for En-suites. Making your way up to the first floor, a view from the iconic church can be seen on the far side of the spacious landing. The family bathroom has a contemporary design whilst maintaining character with a mix of modern technology and historic features.

On the main entryway to the right, you will be amazed as you enter an extensive annex with its own living room, kitchen, dining area, and sun deck. The second floor in the annex is an impressive vaulted space hosting two generously sized bedrooms, one with its very own dressing space with built-in wardrobes and En-suite and an immense loft room. The timbers from the historical fire are preserved and present throughout the annex.

Second Floor

The final bedroom can be found on the second floor which has a great deal of room on the galleried landing, enough to have a comfortable seating area, and the most esteemed En-suite boasting masses of natural light and an astonishing perspective on the garden and Elmesthorpe's Millionaire Row. The bedrooms in the annex can also be found on this floor.

Outside

The triple garage can be found to the rear of the home which flaunts masses of space across two stories. The building is at present being utilized as an astonishing entertainment room and home office. Additionally, the garage has solar panels installed on top which produces enough electricity for the entirety of the 10,000sqft home.

The main landscaped gardens are to the side of the house and next to the paddock. The gardens have excellent views of St Mary's church, which has evolved somewhat over the years. There are many mature trees in the garden, including a huge protected Horse Chestnut and Yew. A stone graveled patio area and ornamental pond are adjacent to the kitchen.

The plot comprises of three-period dwellings one of which is an ancillary stone barn and stable and a separate building currently been rented out for office space. There is a separate entrance in order to gain access to the office building from Wilkinson Lane. This ensures maximum privacy for the home. The two-story office building is available by separate negotiation.
