    About this property

    • South Hall is an impressive duplex apartment arranged over the first and second floors of this imposing Victorian country residence. The building dates from the late 1800s and the apartment has been recently updated and refurbished, providing modern fixtures and fittings whilst enhancing many period features. Also of note is the attractive octagonal turret together with the imposing vaulted former chapel located on the second floor. Features include modern kitchen and bathroom suites, high ceilings, ceiling roses, cornice and picture rails. There is also a separate cellar, two garages and a parking space, together with wonderful communal gardens and grounds which includes a tennis court.

      The communal hall has stairs rising to the first floor and private entrance to South Hall where a cloakroom and utility room is located.

      The principal reception room serves well as a sitting and dining room, featuring a fireplace and superb far reaching views over the gardens and countryside beyond.

      Double doors lead to the modern fitted kitchen comprising a comprehensive range of wall and base cupboards with a matching island unit and integral appliances by Gaggenau and Miele. The breakfast area is located within the charming octagonal turret which allows 180 degree far reaching views.

      Completing this floor is a bedroom with fitted wardrobes and served by a modern en suite shower room.

      Arranged over the second floor is the impressive former chapel with a striking Victorian panelled vaulted ceiling and timber architraves. This versatile room could be used as a reception room or study.

      There are three bedrooms on this floor, all with fitted wardrobes. Two have access to a delightful balcony with superb views, and one of these also has steps to the turret area, also with far reaching views.

      An en suite bathroom and separate family bathroom complete this floor.

      The apartment has two garages within the grounds together with visitors parking.

      The communal gardens amount to about 4 acres, with wide swathes of lawn and mature trees and shrubs, together with views over the beautiful adjoining countryside. Use of the tennis court is granted to all residents.
