‘Discreet’ sprawling estate on the market with cool £5m price tag
A sprawling Leicestershire estate has been put up for sale for a cool £5 million – but it’s being kept very much under wraps. The estate on Nanpatan Road in Loughborough, features a ten bedroom, ten bathroom property which is being described as an “outstanding, important, and unrepeatable opportunity”.
The country house and the other detached houses have a combined size of 10,000 square feet of internal space, as well as an office, storage, and an extra ancillary cottage with an additional 3,000 square feet. The property, which has been owned by the same family for more than 50 years, has over eight acres of land at its disposal, including two large detached houses.
Outside, the property comes with manicured formal gardens, ornamental ponds, pergolas, and bridges, as well as the luxury of its own swimming pool, tennis court, mini rugby pitch, vegetable garden and greenhouse. There’s also lots of greenery and foliage, including dozens of trees, as well as three automated gates to access the vast estate.
