Full descriptionGrade II* Listed and dating from the 17th Century, Glendon Hall was split into four separate dwellings in the 1970's. The Jacobean Wing forms part of the north-west façade and is rendered with a Collyweston roof.
The original lease, which runs for 999 years, dates from October 1976. A management committee, consisting of the four owners, runs the communal areas and individual owners have responsibility for the upkeep of their own parts of the building.
The front door opens into a stone hallway with a
beautiful oak staircase ascending ahead. To the left, the hall leads to a breakfast kitchen with central island and eating area with a mixture of wooden and granite work surfaces. Beyond is an impressive dining room with oak flooring and two large mullion windows and an open fire place. In the hall, immediately adjacent to the kitchen, is a cloakroom with a shower and, beside this, stairs lead to the cellar where there is a utility area. The wonderfully ornate oak staircase leads to the landing with a paneled ceiling above and then on to the most impressive room of the house; the drawing room.
This has ornate Jacobean strapwork ceilings, oak
paneling and floors, an open fire and two large
mullion windows, one of which is fitted with stained glass depicting various New Testament scenes. At the opposite end of the landing is a bedroom. On the second floor there are a further two bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Glendon Hall is discreetly positioned behind high estate walls just to the north of Kettering.
Transport links are exceptional with the A43, A14 and A6 all nearby and enabling access across the region. The A1 and M1 are equidistant and both within easy reach. Nearby Kettering Station has a high speed train service to London St Pancras which takes from 49 minutes. Additionally, there is
a wealth of excellent schooling, both private and state, within the region. Local preparatory schools include Maidwell Hall, Spratton Hall and Bilton Grange. Public schools include Rugby, Uppingham, Oakham, Stamford and Oundle.
To the front of the house there is a graveled area which serves as an al fresco dining space alongside the house with parking for several cars beyond. Within the tree line to the right of the drive there are two wooden offices which offer versatile usage. A gravel path stretches away from the house and leads to a wonderful walled garden with a stone pond surrounded by geometric rose beds. The area of ownership extends to the west where there is the original walled kitchen garden with a fenced-off area in which is a chicken coop and run. Additionally, there are six vegetable beds and a restored Victorian greenhouse, which is part owned.
