Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A totally unique opportunity to purchase a property so steeped in history that it actually dates back to Elizabethan times circa 1580. This of course means that the property is absolutely filled with the most wonderful original features to include the stone casement windows, extensive wooden panelling to the walls, beams to the ceiling and beautiful inglenook fireplaces. When I first saw Burton Hall I was delighted to see that in some of the rooms it really does feel as if you are stepping back in time, yet the current owners have spent considerable time and effort in recent years creating a comfortable and incredibly versatile family home that now includes a cinema room and have replaced kitchens and bathrooms that suit modern family life, yet still retain and reflect every ounce of charm and character. Decorated throughout in the more muted tones of Farrow and Ball, the house still feels refreshingly modern for a property reputed to be the oldest habitable house in the town. One of the most interesting features that I need to point out is that the house can divide perfectly into two completely self-contained properties, where the former servant's accommodation naturally separates from the family side of the house. I think that this could not only be ideal for an extended family as an 'annexe', but also offers the potential to perhaps rent out one of the sections as Air B and B accommodation, which could in turn enable the house to fund it's own upkeep and future maintenance. Situated just on the outskirts of the town, convenient for Pilgrim Hospital and the High School as well as two super primary schools, Burton Hall enjoys an established plot of approximately 2 acres (sts), a heated outdoor swimming pool, orchard and a coach house with single garage.
What an absolutely beautiful property this is, and due to a change in circumstances is also offered with no onward chain. Our current owners are only the second in over 200 years, and so Burton Hall looks like it will make the next family a very well-loved home.
