General - A handsome Georgian House in a prime village location. Upton House is a wonderful village property dating from circa 1750 set in beautifully landscaped gardens extending to approximately 0.85 acres. The house was once part of the Appleby School Farm and tenanted by the Chapmans who were famous for Longhorn cattle and as producers of cheese; an Upton custom that continues today with the handmade Sparkenhoe cheese being produced in the village. Much of the period character has been preserved but cleverly combined with sophisticated contemporary styling. The light and airy exquisite interior includes a superb open plan living kitchen with 33 ft orangery, three further reception rooms and four/five bedrooms in the main house.
General Cont. - There is also an elegant annexe created by the conversion of an adjoining barn plus a one bedroomed staff flat. There is considerable flexibility as to how the space is used as the annexe and flat connect directly into the house. The house is set in beautifully landscaped grounds with a heated outdoor swimming pool adjoining the house. There are far reaching country views from the principal rooms.
Location - Upton is a small village set in some of West Leicestershire's most attractive countryside a short drive from the historic town of Market Bosworth which has an extensive range of shops, restaurants and schools. The village is perhaps best known for the Sparkenhoe Cheese Company where there is also a farm shop and cafe. The Battle of Bosworth site is a short distance away and the area is popular with walkers and cyclists. There are good road links available via the A5 and A444 which give easy access to the M1, M6, M42 and M69 motorway which in turn access major cities including Leicester, Birmingham and Coventry. There is a mainline station at Nuneaton with a high speed service to London Euston (approx 55 minutes on fast trains)
