DESCRIPTION Wood Hall comprises of a newly created and inspired country estate in a most private setting.

The house and grounds enjoy outstanding uninterrupted views across the surrounding rolling countryside. The parkland provides productive grazing interspersed with specimen hardwoods. Mature woodland on the eastern border is complimented by several blocks of young mixed plantation and parcels of game cover which provide the nucleus of a very sporting family shoot.

The property enjoys planning consent to considerably extend the farmhouse to create an exceptional country house with five bedrooms and five bathrooms (see proposed floor plans).

OUTSIDE The gardens are mainly laid to sweeping lawns extending all around the house and are enclosed by iron estate fencing with a wildflower area and a haha. The gravel driveway leads from the park land into an extensive parking and turning area with ample scope for the creation of ancillary/domestic outbuildings and garaging. Within the gardens is an old bothy in use as general storage, and nearby in the parkland is a feature pump house.  

LAND & SPORTING The park land and two adjacent paddocks provide plentiful grazing and are well fenced with in parts iron estate fencing and newly planted hedging.
