    About this property

    • Sharrington Hall is a magnificent Grade II* Jacobean Hall, that has been a site of a manorial residence since at least the Norman Conquest and may once have been moated.

      Referenced in Pevsner's The Buildings of England' as being of architectural and historical importance, it is laid out in the traditional Jacobean E shape with the Hall presiding over its estate of barns and separate dwellings. Built of local brick and flint, it is largely 16th and 17th Century with evidence of 11th century origins

      This exceptional property is being offered for sale for only the third time since the 1700's. Currently used as a fine family home with an award-winning holiday cottage business, this boutique estate offers great scope and flexibility for a variety of uses and development.

      Sharrington Hall has recently undergone an extensive and sympathetic program of restoration and modernisation. The grand scale and proportions of this Grade II* building have been expertly interior designed to fuse the perfectly preserved historic features with an elegant contemporary style. The result is a luxurious and unique home.

      Set at the end of a gravel driveway, Sharrington Hall is both impressive and handsome, the flint façade and polygonal projections working perfectly with the clipped box hedges and climbing roses.

      The gabled porch opens into dual aspect rooms which are flooded with natural daylight. The largely open plan design of the ground floor interior complements the historic layout of the architecture and offers practical family living. Large, high-ceilinged rooms flow into one another seamlessly allowing an exceptional sense of space and light that is rare in a building of this age and period.

      All of the rooms are criss-crossed with original oak beams limed to create a feeling of lightness. Solid oak parquet adorns the expansive floors throughout highlighting the many historic period features such as paneling, stone-jambed inglenook fireplaces, oak bressummers and mullioned windows.

      The large living kitchen is situated off the dining hall at the eastern side of the house. This generous space is 48ft in length and features lofty ceilings, an abundance of intact period details and contemporary floor to ceiling sliding doors to the east and west, offering views of the gardens and countryside beyond. A hand built kitchen with its bespoke oversized dressers and islands with locally sourced elm worktops offering ample living and entertaining space.

      The 4-oven Aga sits within an inglenook fireplace under an ancient oak bressummer and former bread oven houses an indoor barbecue.
      The adjacent boot room/utility room has many restored unique features including historic wood work, timbered sink and a remarkable exposed flint wall.

      The first floor is accessed via one of two staircases and the three large bedroom suites, each with ensuite bathrooms, are accessible via a striking corridor of elegant proportion. All of the bedroom suites feature fine, original restored period details and are fitted with high quality bathroom furniture. High ceilings and large windows offer views of the garden.

      The principal bedroom is entirely paneled and features stately oak cross beams, inglenook fireplace and solid oak parquet flooring. The grandeur of the bedroom continues into its oversized bathroom featuring another inglenook fire place, roll top bath and carrara marble shower.

      A small library in the tower is adorned with stained glass mullioned windows.

      The second floor is approached via an historic oak staircase. On this floor the sense of space and light continues into two further bedroom suites with two bathrooms, one in the east tower. A third room currently used as an office could be an additional bedroom.

      Currently run as a successful award-winning holiday rental business but also perfect for guests or extended family accommodation, the properties have featured in several titles including Condé Nast Traveller, The Times and The Guardian, and were described in the Evening Standard as "Possibly the most tasteful and stylish self-catering stay in the UK.

      The mature sunny south facing gardens are part walled and very private. They are planted with wild flowers, formal beds, raised beds and various shrubs and trees, including apple, plum, cherry and fig. There are several terraces and seating areas and there is scope for further landscaping.

      The grounds of the Hall offer a double car port and an impressive brick and flint Grade II listed barn which has considerable development potential (subject to planning consents). There are various other stables and outbuildings including a pretty artist studio with double doors opening onto a terrace.
