Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Hanwell House is one of the finest Georgian houses standing proudly on Hall Street in the heart of this well served village. The Grade II listed house has an elegant red brick frontage with a parapet, stucco cornice, sash and Venetian windows with arched glazing bars, as well as an impressive front door with a semi-circular fanlight, pilasters and an open pediment. Period features throughout the interior include high ceilings, cornices, original fireplaces, dado rail, some brass door furnishings and a beautiful staircase with a mahogany hand rail. The central hallway gives access to the sitting and dining rooms which are well proportioned and both have exposed floorboards. There is a fitted kitchen to the rear as well as a utility room/rear hall. An original brick and timbered staircase leads down to a lower ground floor office that could alternatively provide a wine cellar. From the ground floor hallway stairs lead up to a mezzanine level with a beautiful arched window and access to the family bathroom and separate wc. Further stairs lead up to the top floor with a master bedroom and ensuite wc, further double bedroom with deep cupboards as well as a third single bedroom. Outside there is a small courtyard garden which enjoys a south westerly aspect and incorporates a traditional brick outhouse with a pantiled roof and arched window.

A blue plaque on the front façade is dedicated to Admiral William Hanwell (1766-1830). In 1798 he served as senior Lieutenant of the Sheerness (44 guns) off the African Coast. He was quickly promoted up the ranks to Admiral following the death of his superior, gaining him a fortunate 2 graduations of rank (by default, it appears, as opposed to distinguishing performance!). His subsequent career saw him commanding vessels against Napoleon and he reached the rank of Rear Admiral of the Blue Squadron. Less impressively, he is believed to have married his niece in 1800 and in 1811 was tried, by a court martial, on a charge of repeated drunkenness and unofficer-like conduct; he was acquitted however. He died at Hanwell House in 1830.
