Full description

Bavington Hall is set in a stunning location framed by sheep-speckled parkland. The 15 acres of spectacular gardens around the house are enchanting, containing statues and other features.
Approaching the property from the long, straight drive from the north, this sizeable three storey property was once owned by the Shafto family. The Shafto's acquired the estate when William Shafto married the Bavington heiress in the 15th century. Significant alterations and improvements to the three-storeyed, seven-bayed house were carried out in 1720s and 1930s.
In or around 1720 the estate came into the hands of Admiral George Delaval of Seaton Delaval who developed Bavington Hall adding the top floor and doubling the width of the house making it closer to the sizeable stone built property seen today.
In the 1930's the Bell family purchased the property after being tenants for 21 years, adding the dining room and first floor green room.
The present owner purchased the property in 1995 and undertook the challenge and task of revitalising and restoring the stunning building and landscape. In 1998 Ian Belsham Associates were commissioned to design a new indoor heated swimming pool with sauna and conservatory as an extension to the building. The old stables with the black smiths workshop and forge were converted into four self contained cottages and garages within the stable court yard in 2000.
The generous size of the interior accommodation, combined with the extensive landscaped gardens which enjoy magnificent views across the open countryside, create an opportunity to acquire a country home of great splendour.
