5 bedroom semi-detached house for saleRangemore Hall, Dunstall, Staffordshire
Guide Price £1,950,000
The splendid southern wing of Rangemore Hall was built for a visit of King Edward VII in 1902. This magnificent addition was commissioned by Lord Burton so the King and his entourage had a separate section of the Hall to accommodate them during their brief stay. The scale and grandeur of the wing is captivating.
Exceptional care has been taken to retain and enhance the wonderful period features of the property. The Edward VII wing is a grandly proportioned property of unique, dramatic and exceptional style.
Splendid double doors with fanlight over lead in to the staircase hall and a wonderful carved and polished mahogany staircase. There is a lovely view down the gallery towards the drawing room. The central hall also houses the original passenger lift. This ornate lift is currently not in use but remains as testament to the grand history of the property.
There are three spectacular reception rooms. The sitting room and the drawing/dining room have exceptionally high ceilings and breathtaking frieze, cornice and ceiling plasterwork. Tall windows provide exceptional levels of natural light and lovely views over the terrace, gardens and parkland down to the lakes to the east. Both of these rooms have intricately carved and beautifully proportioned white marble chimney pieces of exceptional quality.
West of the entrance hall, the Kings Study has been recently redecorated with care to preserve the original polished oak panelling behind new plasterwork.
The dramatic kitchen has been beautifully designed and decorated with elegant wall and ceiling plasterwork. The kitchen is extensively fitted out with handmade furniture including two large purpose made dressers around the perimeter of the room.
The Leisure Facilities
The new design of The Edward VII Wing has been carefully conceived to maximize leisure and relaxation areas. The ground floor includes a generously proportioned leisure room which features Ashlar block effect walls, dramatic artificial lighting and a glazed atrium roof. Steps rise up from the leisure room to a raised platform which features a sunken spa bath. Beyond here is the tiled swimming pool with Triton jet swim system for aquatic exercise. The rear wall features three large arched mirrors providing depth to the room.
Gardens and Grounds
A gated entrance is set back from the public road having tall pillars with electrically operated wrought iron gates incorporating an intercom system. A long sweeping drive then leads towards The Edward VII Wing .
The driveway leads up to the original courtyard adjacent to the house which is surrounded by beautiful original stone walls and balustrade, crowned by classical urns.
Adjacent to the courtyard, the four car garage block has twin "up and over" doors. To the side of the house is the long original sun terrace having the benefit of the easterly and southerly aspects. Expansive rolling lawns lead away from the house interspersed with fine trees and mature shrubbery. The lawns lead down to the main lake and to the two private lakes which belong to The Edward VII Wing.
