A beautiful main or second home in a striking setting with private garden and wider grounds, conveniently placed for Rutland Water and the area's favoured market towns and schools.
Dating from circa 1700, this Grade I Listed property adjoins the main mansion house to its east, accessed from within its Cour d'Honneur. The property is steeped in history and has important cricketing connections with England and Lords, among other notable historical connections.
With delightful east facing private walled gardens, of about 0.25 of an acre, with a southerly aspect, parking and a garage, the property also benefits from the communal use of the 60 acres of wider grounds, woodland and deer park at Burley on the Hill.
A beautifully appointed home, which has been comprehensively refurbished and re-wired, re-plumbed and roof overhauled in 2021, the house combines high ceilings, symmetrical proportions and attractive views and is ideal as a main home, investment or weekend holiday home.
Entered into a stone flagged entrance hallway, the kitchen is fabulously appointed, with integrated appliances, Belfast sink and Everhot Range Cooker and an elegant, dual-aspect sitting room, with wood burning stove. The elegant staircase rises to first floor, where there are views over the deer park to Rutland Water. The three bedrooms are all elegant with architectural detail. The principal bedroom has an en suite shower room. Double bedrooms two and three are served by the well-appointed family bathroom.
The wider 60+ acres of grounds are managed by Burley Gardens Limited. As owner you will have one share in the management company and pay an annual management charge, currently set at £3330.

Elegant proportions and fabulous finishes sum up the accommodation within this beautiful house, where the setting, history, architecture and lifestyle is second to none, to me. The garden is delightful, private and larger than I expected at about a quarter of an acre, whilst the garage is an important additional benefit. The wider parkland, woodland and deer park offer beautiful walks so close to Rutland Water.James Abbott
