Humphreys Court is a Grade II listed Georgian country location home set in 6 acres of gardens and woodland, and situated in rural South Leicestershire.
The home consists of a 6 bedroom main house, and a 2 bedroom apartment at the rear, plus triple garages. Overall the internal accommodation stretches to around 10,000sq ft.
The square Georgian building has an attractive exterior with an embattled parapet, and is surrounded by private gardens to all sides. In recent years the house has been subject to a beautiful, sympathetic renovation which has modernised the interiors without losing the classical style appropriate to the building and its history.
There is an abundant use of colour and pattern with the decoration, and the furnishings have been kept simple and minimal, which has produced an interesting home where the original features are showcased to their full potential.
An imposing double door opens to the grand entrance hall. A large space with towering ceiling height and archway through which the inner hall opens to the dramatic galleried staircase. The floor is original Portland stone, and there is an open fireplace with painted surround. A grand piano sits comfortably in the room and contemporary artwork brings the palette of colours together.
Off the entrance hall is the reception room. A large room with huge sash windows and french doors leading out to the side garden. There is a stained and polished wood floor and mantelpiece with open fire (in working order).
Off the inner hall is the drawing room and the main kitchen. The drawing room is the largest of the reception rooms and features a striking wallpaper, (Artemis - off white, from House of Hackney), tall sash windows to two elevations, and french doors out the side garden. The dining kitchen is a traditional design and painted in two shades of green - 'Ulla' (walls) and 'Sage Green' (units) from Little Greene, and there is a triple AGA.
The Garden room is painted in 'Soho Pink' by Mylands, has french doors which open out to the rear terrace, and a floor of fabulous geometrical reclaimed tiles from Spain.
On the first floor are the 6 beautiful bedrooms, all well proportioned and well appointed. The bathrooms are real showstoppers!
To the rear of the house is the 2 bedroom apartment, which can be used as breakout space / green room when hiring the main house, if required.
This Location House is under 1 hour from St Pancras by train to Market Harborough, and then 10 minutes taxi ride.
Nearest Rail: Market Harborough - 10 minutes drive from the house.
