Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The West Wing forms the major part of Ashwell Hall which dates from 1879 and is Grade II Listed. It is conjoined with the East Wing, although the majority of the driveway and garden is within the ownership of the West Wing.

Under the current ownership since 2003, the West Wing has been extensively refurbished. The front staircase leads up to a large light filled hallway which runs the length of the wing. At the eastern end is a kitchen replete with an Aga, granite worktops, a complete range of farmhouse style units and French doors leading to the garden. Via large oak and glass double doors this opens onto a day room with both a dining and snug area with large floor to ceiling sash windows. Opposite the kitchen is a utility room. Moving back down the hall, and opposite the main entrance is a lovely light-filled sitting room with, again, floor to ceiling sash windows and a full height oak and glass door opening onto the hallway. At the western end of the hallway there is an expansive drawing room, which has been restored but requires some, largely cosmetic, finishing. At the end of the room is a beautiful bay window overlooking the gardens. There is a cloakroom on the opposite side of the hall.

A stunningly grand staircase, framed by a stained glass window, has been meticulously restored to its former glory. It leads to the first floor where there are four large bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms, a family bathroom and a useful landing area currently used as a home office. On the second floor there are a further three large bedrooms and a bathroom in addition to a landing area which, again, serves as a home office area.

• The conservation village of Ashwell has a population of under 300. The church, dates back to the 13th Century, was restored and added to by Butterfield in the mid-19th Century. The busy market town of Oakham, some 3.8 miles away has excellent shopping facilities and an open market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. One mile from Ashwell, on the way to Oakham, is a garden centre. Trains from Oakham provide connecting services from Leicester or Peterborough (Peterborough to Kings Cross from 52 minutes).
• Schooling is superb and many are within easy reach, including the public schools of Oakham, Uppingham and Oundle. Nearby Rutland Water offers all manner of recreation including sailing, wind surfing and fishing. The renowned Relais & Chateaux Hotel, Hambleton Hall, lies at its centre. The Rutland Polo Club is very active and there is a variety of local golf courses, the oldest being The Luffenham Heath Golf Club. The local Stapleford Park Country Club has its own course also.

Outside, and on the northern side, the driveway provides parking for several cars and runs well beyond the western end of the house. In addition there is a castellated double garage. On the southern side of the house, and overlooked by all the principal rooms and bedrooms, is a lawned area, flanked by yew hedges, which leads down to a more informal part of the garden with a pond and woodland.

In all approximately 2 acres (0.809 hectares)
