Impressive Grade II listed mansion with cinema, indoor swimming pool and billiard room, set in three acres of grounds in a convenient yet rural location.
Grade II listed and believed to date from the 1840s, Worth Hall is a striking white rendered detached mansion with castellated elevations under and slate tiled roof.
With grand proportions, wonderful period details and elegant décor, Worth Hall is a prime country residence which is ideally suited for both entertaining on a grand scale in the formal drawing and dining rooms, and for luxury family life with a first floor cinema room and billiard room, and a heated indoor swimming pool with spa pool and a spiral staircase leading up to the spacious mezzanine bar. Day to day life is served by a sitting room adjoining the kitchen/breakfast room, and a library with mezzanine study area.
The impressive kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with an excellent range of bespoke cabinetry, including a central island with breakfast bar, and fittings include a pair of Gaggenau fridge freezers and Miele appliances. Full height French doors opening to the west facing terrace, creating a wonderful space to eat al fresco.
There are seven bedrooms in all arranged over the first and second floors. Four are en suite and there are three further bath/shower rooms. A first floor playroom could also be used as a bedroom, if required. The floorplans give an excellent overview of the full extent and layout of the accommodation.
Outside, the property is approached via a track over the surrounding land, which leads up to the electronically operated wrought iron gates, opening to Worth Hall's private drive.
Beyond the house is the one bedroom Cottage, which could be used as staff or guest accommodation. A six bay open garage, with a large loft room over, provides covered parking and storage; a fully boarded timber garden room with power connected is ideal for garden parties.
The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, and lie predominantly to the west of house, with established trees and shrubs screening the boundary. The grounds extend in all to about three acres.
Worth Hall has right of way across the track leading to the property, and the short spur across the field to leave.
There is a Japanese knotweed management plan in place. A copy can be supplied on request.
