Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A classic early C19 Grade II listed hall once set in 54 acres of stunning parkland and woodland. Originally commissioned in 1810 for a family of Sheffield steel forgers and later a luxury hotel, this splendid coach house is now available to purchase separately offering a feel of stately grandeur for reasons not least of which as it retains a stunning approach through beautiful parkland via a long drive studded with mature trees and with a wooded backdrop and distant views. Through substantial stone gate piers this beautiful mellow sandstone home resides by a paddock, landscaped gardens, outbuildings and double garage.

Five bedrooms and lofty reception rooms are arranged around a superb two storey galleried dining hall, with beams exposed to the ridge and where light cascades through its massive stone archway with delicate lunette windows and french doors.

There is fine detail all around. Neat coursed, hand tooled mellow sandstone walls sit beneath natural graded stone roof slates. Original openings are generous and flood the property with light and further styled with Oeil-de-boeuf and Oculus widows to the elevations and gable, each subtly framed with carved stone cavetto moldings. 

Ground floor Double french doors open through the original broad stone archway with lunette window high above, the two storey dining hall is almost breathtaking as it is open to the rafters revealing massive timbered beams in the purlins and trusses, a stair rises to a gallery where the view is most satisfying, and on to the master bedroom suite. The sitting room at the rear is a large later addition, also with soaring ceilings, a triple aspect and Georgian windows.

A well fitted farmhouse style kitchen sits beside the reception rooms, there is a ground floor cloakroom, a store/boot room, a practically fitted utility and a spacious study room quietly tucked away.

Bedrooms are split between the upper and lower floors where they are divided further to the east and west wing. At the east wing a double room served by a modern bathroom and to the west two well-proportioned doubles with a modern shower room suite. 

First floor From the imposing first floor gallery lies the master bedroom with en suite shower room and fabulous views over the parkland and woodland surrounding the hall. The guest room has a lofty feel with revealed timbered trusses which are glazed internally towards the gallery and there are roof lights. 

Exterior There is a separate building, probably a former foaling stable or wash house, used as a store place/ workshop and has further potential.

At the rear there is access to the extensive basement where a stone arch spans wide over the doorway and access to the basement storage.

A detached stone garage is situated to the side and at the end of the long and recently resurfaced drive, approached through massive stone gate piers and enclosed with natural stone dwarf walls, flanking the paddock with post a rail fencing. There is parking and turning space for several vehicles.

Gardens are superb, to the rear a tranquil atmosphere with a wooded backdrop and a large raised decked terrace. For large parties and entertaining the south terrace in natural stone flags spans the entire length of the building, and deep into the beautifully landscaped gardens. Central stone steps rise to a level lawn and railed paddock which blends seamlessly with the stalely parkland grounds of the hall.
