Full descriptionAn exceptional Grade II listed Hall, one of the most prominent large family homes in the Sheffield area. The house was originally built during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I in around 1550 for Herbert Mitchell and was later purchased by Henry Dixon in 1854, who re-built and extended it with care and attention to detail to retain the original style. The property has undergone an extensive refit and refurbishment programme within the last five years, whilst again ensuring the original character of the house is maintained. The Hall is approached via a sweeping driveway and is slightly elevated facing due south and overlooking its extensive grounds which encircle the property extending to approximately two and a half acres. The architectural features of the house are of particular note. Upon entering the main hall and the grand lounge hall which extends to full height has oak panelling and a sweeping staircase which provides a spectacular first impression. This house has been refurbished to a high standard taking care to match both traditional and contemporary styles. There are only a small number of houses of this calibre in private hands in the Sheffield area and whilst the property offers extensive accommodation it is not rambling. There is a separate building for staff or guests with three bedrooms, two reception rooms and a kitchen. The grounds are a particular feature of this stunning home, catching the sun throughout the day, the entire acreage well maintained and thoughtfully landscaped. There are extensive lawns, mature shrubs and trees and to the rear is a fine walled kitchen garden with superb greenhouse and a Tudor style knot garden.
