The Grange, a rare former 1920s hunting lodge situated in the Leicestershire village of Burton Lazars, is now available to buy for £1.9 million.
Occupying an elevated position, this unique home overlooks the valley on which the famous National Hunt Chase at Burton Lazars was once held in 1864 and 1871. If you're after a property packed with sporting history, then this is the home for you.
Currently being used as a successful guest house, the main property has 11 en-suite bedrooms, eight kitchenettes, a large reception room, striking oak staircase, stunning library with panelled walls, and a large family kitchen complete with double Belfast sinks and a gas AGA. You certainly won't have to worry about entertaining space.
Rooms are a combination of space and light. Some could do with a modern refresh (such as the magnolia-hued bedrooms), while those that echo the building's past are worth keeping as they are.
Elsewhere, there's also an attached former stable which has been converted into the Grange Mews. Offering an additional six independently accessed apartments, it's the ultimate party pad for guests to frequent.
The home also has some impressive royal racing connections, too. While the venue closed in 1939 at the start of the war, Prince Henry and the future king Prince Edward were among those to ride at the course in 1923.
"The beauty of this house is that it offers the flexibility to continue as a guest house or to be used as a large family home, and the Grange Mews offers potential to further extend, subject to planning," says Ian Cattle, Head of Sales in Northampton at Carter Jonas. "The Grange is a special family home, and we urge anyone who is looking to make a big life move to the countryside to get in contact."
Pam Holden, the owner of the property, adds: "I have lived in this property for 32 wonderful years and it's been amazing to enjoy the beautiful views each day – the best in Leicestershire! A huge benefit of the home is that you can see the stunning landscape from every room, and sunshine pours into the house throughout the day.
"An ideal buyer for The Grange would be a family or a couple from the city who are after a new adventure in the peaceful countryside. The property is hugely flexible – it lends itself so well to corporate entertaining or a B&B arrangement, so occupants will find that they can easily generate the income required to run the property."
A grande dame on the outskirts of Melton Mowbray, The Grange stands in wonderful landscaped gardens. From panoramic views over the rolling countryside to the pretty borders, it's an outdoor space to remember. And, if that wasn't enough, there's also a side garden with its own office studio building.
This property is currently on the market for £1,950,000 with Carter Jonas.
