Carlton Curlieu Hall
John Bale purchased land at Carlton Curlieu in 1549 and in 1575 his nephew and namesake acquired the Manor estate. His son, also John Bale, High Sheriff of Leicestershire in 1624, replaced the old manor house with the present house on the same site in 1636.
The house which incorporates later alterations, presents an entrance front of five bays and three storeys with basements. The central and end bays protrude forward up to second storey height; the central serving as the Doric order columned entrance porch. The upper storey has five Dutch gables.
The house became the principal seat of the Palmer family following the sale of East Carlton in 1933.
