Properties such as this one are rare to the market and offer the discerning buyer an opportunity to live in a beautiful rural setting, yet within a property with substantial accommodation to suit all needs. Listed and in a conservation area, the building is an outstanding example of part of a country house dating back to the 13th century.
Full of history, most recently Burn Hall was acquired by Saint Joseph's Missionary Society of Mill Hill which established a boys' school there, which from 1995 was redeveloped into a number of residential properties, one of which being the subject property.
The restoration of the main house and the redevelopment of the area to the rear by Jane Darbyshire Associates won the City Trust's architectural commendation of the year in 1998.
As would be expected of a property of this nature the size of the rooms is of great appeal, both height-wise and floor space. Total elegance and versatility for a range of buyers, for a family or professional couple perhaps, or even a rural retreat for holidays/staycations.
With a private coded and gated access to a lengthy driveway, surrounded by open fields and countryside, the driveway sweeps around to a double garage and two vehicle parking space in front.
The property is accessed through an arch to a courtyard, off which is the entrance to the entrance hallway leading to the ground floor rooms, comprising exquisite living/drawing room with three substantial windows looking out to the greenery around. A log burner is housed in a brick fireplace with granite hearth.
A second reception room, used as a further sitting room by the current owners, could also be used as an office if required or a children's playroom.
The kitchen provides yet again a spacious room, with French doors leading to the garden, granite worktops, a central island and a farmhouse style range of kitchen units with travertine flooring, a substantial cooking range, integrated dishwasher, integrated washing machine, space for a fridge/freezer, and substantial space for a dining table.
A ground floor WC completes the accommodation on this floor with a stylish and wide staircase providing access to a basement as well as first floor.
To the basement is a deceiving amount of space, perhaps for entertaining, with two separate areas, one housing a substantial snooker table, included in the sale, and the other a bar area and reception area.
To the first floor is the bedroom suite comprising four bedrooms and three bathing areas.
The principal bedroom is split into five distinct areas, namely the bedroom area, an En-suite bathroom, a sitting area, a dressing area and a further walk-in wardrobe/dressing zone. With plenty of wardrobes fitted to the room, the room also has three bay windows to provide light and stunning views over the greenery of the development as well as countryside beyond. There is also the opportunity due to the size of this room to reconfigure to make more bedrooms/offices if required subject to the usual building regulations being adhered to.
Three other double bedrooms are available as well as an En suite shower room to one and the family shower room.
Just a short walk away is the double garage with parking bay to front of each garage door as well as visitor parking.
The property is offered with freehold tenure and has an annual service charge of £1929.00 per annum with a contribution to a communal insurance policy payable at £59.00 per annum.
The property is supplied by Liquid Petroleum Gas with a Septic Tank provision for sewerage.
We highly recommend a viewing on this property to appreciate the location, the countryside around as well as understand the versatility and size of the internal accommodation.
