Property description

Wilson Hall has HUGE POTENTIAL for further extension and development of the second floor and outbuildings that sit adjacent to the private south westerly aspected rear gardens. This imposing Georgian farmhouse is located in the beautiful rural hamlet of Wilson which has a country pub and sits close to the desirable town of Melbourne.

General Description - Alexanders offer to the market this handsome period property with an impressive Georgian facade and grand proportions in a prominent position in the sought-after village of WIlson, just two miles from the historic market charter town of Melbourne. The property is steeped in history and character and has huge potential for further extension/development into the second floor and outbuildings that sit adjacent to the private south westerly aspected rear gardens.

Wilson Hall is the impressive former farmhouse of Wilson Hall Farm. Surrounding the property are the original barns that are now tastefully converted private homes all leading from a driveway that gives parking and access to the outbuildings of this property. To the front, the house occupies a prominent position behind a green with lawned front gardens and a York Stone path leading to the front door. To the rear are south westerly private gardens with a collection of brick under tile outbuildings. There is a barn to one side and a mature copper beech to the other. The gardens are laid mainly to lawn with various borders and a sun filled seating terrace adjacent to the kitchen area.

Internally the property is believed to originally date back to the 18th-Century and boasts a beautiful late-Georgian facade with two impressive stone bays to the front. With the inclusion of the loft rooms, which are believed to be former bedroom areas and could be recommissioned, there is a total of 3,500 square of floor area laid across three floors. There is a wealth of interesting period features and character, with a generous hall having high ceilings and a beautiful grand staircase.

Location - Wilson is a particularly attractive semi-rural hamlet settlement with exceptional commuter links to Derby, Nottingham, Leicester and Birmingham. East Midlands airport is just 4 miles to the east, although the village is not under the flight path, and there is a well thought of public house and a health spa in the village. Just two miles to the north is the revered and well-serviced historic market charter town of Melbourne, where there is a full and exhaustive array of amenities mixed with boutique shops and eateries all centred around a beautiful square. There is excellent local state and private schooling available within close proximity. Repton, Twycross House, Loughborough Endowed School and Trent College are all easily accessible.

Accommodation - In brief, expect to find: two bay fronted rooms, currently a formal sitting room and separate dining room, fully fitted shaker style kitchen/breakfast room with a pantry, utility room with a w.c off, snug, and a flexible room to the rear of the property that requires modernisation but was believed to be a maids/farm hands sitting room originally. Upstairs leading from a large open landing with two staircases (the main staircase from the hall and a working staircase from the kitchen) are five generous double bedrooms and two separate well-appointed bathroom suites. The principal bedroom has built-in wardrobes and a dressing room, and there is a closed staircase leading to the second floor and the loft rooms that subject to modernisation and building regulation sign off could become an impressive principal suite or a collection of further bedrooms.

Outbuildings - To the rear of the main house are a collection of outbuildings including a large storage barn totalling 1100 sq ft. The outbuildings are largely original and constructed in brick under slate, with a variety of potential uses subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
