    About this property

    • The grade I listed mansion house, Burley on the Hill House, dates from 1694 to 1700. It is described by Pevsner (1960) as a palace, but is Palladian, albeit it predates by some twenty years the accepted start of the Palladian Revival. At first work was supervised Henry Dormer (d 1727); in 1697 he was replaced by John Lumley (d 1721), who was still working there on the stables in 1705, within which this property forms part.

      It has a fabulous and colourful history, with important formative cricket connections, along with architectural and landscaping associations. The mansion was converted into six dwellings by Kit Martin in 1993–98, with a further 22 dwellings on the estate. Previously the estate had been purchased by Asil Nadir in 1991.

      This spectacular home forms a large part of the first and second floor within the converted stable block wing, the linked east wing of the mansion. It is accessed from the stable wing's central stone flagged entrance hallway and cantilevered staircase.

      The property combines attractive period details with a modern and contemporary-style, and has a distinctly modern finish and flow, having been reconfigured, as well as electrically rewired and plumbed in the current owner's tenure. It offers attractive, far reaching views to the east over park and farmland, oblique views to the south, from its roof terrace, of woodland towards Rutland Water, and to the west of the Mansion's Cour d'Honneur.

      Entered from the communal stairwell to a private hallway, which opens to a large vaulted stairwell, the first floor combines tall windows and high ceilings, with whitewashed and stone walls offering a contemporary sense of grandeur. Double doors open from the hall to the dining room, kitchen and sitting room.

      The elegant white floored dining room offers lovely views of the Cour d'Honnneur, whilst the 20' square sitting room, which is also a double height room with exposed timbers, stonework and a contemporary gas fire is highly impressive and, with its clean, contemporary décor, emphasises the modern sense of volume and space within this historic building and setting.

      The kitchen is fitted with a sleek, modern suite by Nathanial Oliver of Oakham. It incorporates a central quartz topped island and fitted table, with high-end integrated appliances, including induction hob, range of fan, microwave and steam ovens, a coffee machine and double drawer-style dishwasher. The principal bedroom suite has fitted wardrobes and a full en suite bathroom, with separate shower. In keeping with the kitchen, all bath and shower rooms incorporate luxurious, fully tiled modern suites.

      The staircase rises to a wide galleried landing, which overlooks the sitting room. There are two further double bedrooms, one with en suite shower room and the other en suite to the luxurious Jack & Jill family bathroom, with his & hers sink units, walk-in shower and floating effect bathtub. A large dressing room is also accessed from the landing, whilst patio doors open from the landing to an enclosed roof terrace, from which there are splendid views

      The property is set within the approximately 60 acres of magnificent private grounds of Burley on the Hill House, which feature rolling lawns, immaculate border beds and well-maintained shrubs and hedgerows. There are walks around the deer park and through woodland. The covered colonnades of the Cour d'Honneur connect to the main house and provide a splendid space in which to stroll and enjoy your surroundings.

      The stables has its own garaging block, with the property benefitting from a double garage with further parking in front.
