Property Description

Full description

From derelict shell to country estate: the Grade II listed MELTON ROSS HALL has been reborn after 20 years of considered restoration to become a stunning family residence offering 27 rooms within 9.77 acres ( approx ) of parkland grounds with fishing lake.
Understood to have originally been an eighteenth century Lincolnshire Long House, with the front facade added in 1860, the house now balances beautifully proportioned elegance with informal practicality to provide wonderful entertaining areas together with space for intimate privacy. It is above all a social home: the stunning Reception Hall is lit by a feature arched window on the fully restored grand staircase and is flanked by two formal reception rooms, the part panelled Dining Room is ideal for family celebrations and the Morning Room is a place for quiet relaxation. Undoubtedly the Kitchen is the informal heart of the home and is linked, via a further Hall, to the enclosed Courtyard to become a single space of privacy and warmth.
Arranged over the two remaining floors the 10 Bedrooms and 4 Bathrooms provide more than enough space for the extended family or for those inevitable guests.
The principle grounds lie to the south of The Hall and the broad lawns are divided by magnificant cedar, sequoia, beech and ash trees - some of which date back to 1750 - to provide distinct areas for boisterous games, family celebrations and for the abundant wildlife whilst the stream fed lake ensures that the stresses of modern life are eased away.
Restored and refurbished Melton Ross Hall has now been reborn as a unique family home.
