Property Description

Full description

Arguably the most important Grade II * Listed Georgian Country House, in the ancient county of Stafford. This substantial property is set in a truly unique location, with spectacular views across its own two lakes, and occupies approximately One hundred and fifty acres of historic Grade II parkland. A romantic ruin now in need of complete restoration, nestled in isolation in a secluded valley, offering complete privacy, yet with superb road links to Birmingham City centre, some five miles away, the M6 Motorway/ A34, and Birmingham International Airport. The Hall offers scope to be increased or reduced in size, and subject to consent, lends itself readily as a Boutique Hotel, Nursing Home or Company Headquarters. There may also be further scope for a bespoke residential development of one or two properties in their own prescribed lakeside position. There is a wealth of historic landscaped features to include 18th Cent Carriage Drives along both sides of the lakes, and the Estate is believed to have been embellished by Humphry Repton, John Nash, George Gilbert Scott and William Shenstone. We are favoured with instructions by way of special dispensation from the trustees, to find a suitable custodian to safe guard this magnificent estate.
