The Sidnalls has a fascinating history which the current
owners have fully researched (a copy of which is
available) and is briefly outlined as follows. The property is
first mentioned in the reign of King Henry II (1154-89) as the
‘Grange of Sydenhale’ in the Royal Forest of Feckenham.
It is next mentioned in the 14th Century when it transferred to the Abbott of Bordesley. It remained an Abbey grange until the Dissolution when it became the property of Lord Windsor until the estate was broken up after the Second
World War. The house was rebuilt around 1750 when many original medieval building materials were re-used. In the 1850’s the farmhouse was split into three farm worker’s cottages and
remained as such until 1954, when it was converted back to a single dwelling. The Sidnalls has remained in the same family since 1975 and has undergone many transformations
to create the current day residence.
The accommodation has been carefully restored and improved to retain and enhance the original character and charm including fireplaces, flooring, exposed timbers, windows, doors and traditional bathroom fittings. A reception hall with Victorian quarry tiled floor has doors
radiating off to a lovely cosy sitting room with full height brick fireplace fitted with log burner and French windows to the side terrace, cloakroom, utility/boot room with coal
store and wood store off, farmhouse style kitchen again with Victorian quarry tiled floor, oak units and brick alcove suitable for an Aga. A door leads to the atmospheric dining room with its heavy exposed ceiling timbers and reclaimed Victorian pine floor boards. Off the dining room
is a superb family room which has been created from an old cart shed and features a stunning beamed ceiling, wood burner and is full of light coming from windows along the full length and velux windows in the room. This room
complements and contrasts beautifully with the original house. On the first floor are three double bedrooms, a pretty single bedroom, an en suite bathroom to the master bedroom featuring a period suite including roll top bath,
high level WC and bidet. There is also a family bathroom and all of the first floor rooms enjoy views over the gardens or surrounding land and countryside.
The Sidnalls sits in its own gardens and grounds extending to approximately 4.15 acres divided into garden, vegetable plots and paddocks and is approached by a driveway that provides parking and access to a garage. There is an
extensive range of outbuildings extending to approximately 8,947 square feet including detached brick barn which has potential for conversion (subject to planning permission)
linked brick barn, stabling, large storage building and open fronted tractor stores. There are also a number of pig pens and a separate vehicular access drive to the left of the house gives access to the fields and barns. Part of the land is registered for single farm payments.
