About this property

  • Charwelton Hall is a substantial Grade II listed house of 18th century origins with later additions.

    The property is of ironstone construction under a double gabled tiled roof and is in need of renovation.

    This is a unique opportunity for the incoming purchaser to improve and modernise. Whilst in need of renovation, the property has, until recently, been let. As a result the property has undergone some modernisation particularly to the kitchen/breakfast room and various bath/shower rooms.

    Wealth of period features including a fine painted oak staircase, fluted Doric pillar entrance porch, open fireplaces, flagstone, mosaic and quarry tiled flooring with various upper floors having exposed floorboards, shuttered sash windows, four panelled internal doors and exposed timbers.

    In light of the property's age and architecture the house offers well-proportioned rooms, generous ceiling heights and ample natural light giving it a real sense of space.

    Kitchen/breakfast room with a semi-vaulted ceiling. Useful cellar, pantry, utility/boot room and store.

    Adjoining traditional undeveloped stone barn offers scope and potential for conversion subject to the relevant consents.

    Hardstanding main driveway leads up to the property where it divides off to the left via a pair of wrought iron entrance gates on stone piers to the front of the house and shingle parking and turning area. The right hand spur of the main driveway leads off to a rear courtyard and adjoining barn and garaging beyond.

    Extensive partly walled gardens laid to lawn. Wrought iron estate fencing and laurel hedging to front. From here lawns lead to one of the medieval ponds in need of clearing and dredging. From here paths lead out to the west into a belt of woodland and a paddock beyond. About 11.64 acres of permanent pasture lies to the east and south with stock proof fencing and separate access on to the Hellidon Road.

    Key attributes of this delightful property include the opportunity for renovation; undeveloped barn offering scope to create additional accommodation/income stream/working from home; extensive gardens and woodland; land offering space and protection.

    In all about 18.5 acres.
