Apartment 10 Berkswell Hall is a property of grandeur, yet with the understated ability to instantly feel like home. The current owners have been exceptionally happy while in residence, tales of the ease of "lock up and leave", living in an environment that offers privacy and security, yet neighbours and reassurance when required.
The apartment is entered on the ground floor, its main front door just past the sweeping main staircase on your right hand side. A tiled stone floor greets you to a private inner lobby, with courtyard access to the garage and a second oversized front door into the softly furnished main entrance to the accommodation. There is plentiful under stairs storage, and the undeniably impressive staircase to the first floor along with a mezzanine feature level, ideal for showcasing a furniture piece or objet d'art. The spacious landing separates living and bedroom accommodation, with the dining kitchen to the front elevation enjoying views to the main entrance gates and side gardens.
The main lounge is a practical square shape, able to easily house large sumptuous furniture. The gas fire is not a necessity to be used, but adds to the cosy atmosphere of a winter's evening.
The guest cloakroom sits midway between the bedrooms and living area, with excellent storage cupboards, ideal for home necessities, along with an enviable shoe cupboard. Bedroom two benefits built in wardrobes and ensuite, and bedroom one a vast array of wardrobe space and use of the large main bathroom. Should a future owner prefer to incorporate the main bathroom and bedroom one to form a closed suite, this would easily be possible. Bedroom three is an obvious study or separate dressing room if required.
There is no shortage of parking to the front gravelled elevation, plus the single garage for either storage or a car. Acres of lawned grounds and tree life will provide hours of exploration, or simply the chance to lose oneself from inside, overlooking the many views from the large oversized windows.
Renovation works have taken place in recent years both externally and within the hall's communal areas and final decoration works have now been completed. The original call bells of the Hall are still located to this day in the front main lobby, as you enter via two large sets of tall double doors. The property for the majority of its years has always been a country family manor house, however, was used as a School for some 17 years in the mid 1800s. The conversion to residential apartments took place mid 1900s, and Apartment 10 is just one of 16 unique properties to this Hall, each to be respected and admired for their own individual traits.
