About this property

  • Situated in this sought after and peaceful hamlet, Howell Hall is a fine Grade II listed family home which has been sympathetically restored by the current owners to exacting standards with an array of contemporary and bespoke fixtures and fittings throughout. Originally built in 1720 and later extended in the late 18th century, this typically Georgian style home is set back from a quiet country road on a generous plot in an idyllic setting with a distinct rural feel. The house enjoys pleasant and tranquil parkland views across its gardens and the countryside beyond.

    Inside, the accommodation of approximately 5,000 sq.ft is deceptively light and airy, thanks in part to the high ceilings and the large sash windows in virtually every room which flood the interiors with natural light. The grand and well-proportioned rooms are attractively presented and offer great potential for entertaining friends at home and large family celebrations. A number of character features remain, including exposed beams, flagged stone flooring, decorative plasterwork and original fireplaces, which have been attractively combined with the more modern décor, with the house having undergone a complete renovation with an array of newly installed features including a beautifully designed and handcrafted DeVol kitchen, windows, doors, radiators, parquet/karndean flooring, well appointed bathrooms and boiler units.

    In more detail, the substantial accommodation extends to more than 5,000 sq ft across three floors, including a choice of reception rooms and eight double bedrooms. To the ground floor, a welcoming entrance hall with Parquet flooring opens into a formal sitting room, family room, dining room, cloakroom/WC and recently appointed high specification DeVol kitchen which includes a range of wall and base units with soft close drawers and marble work tops, a two stove AGA, twin Belfast sink and central breakfast island which leads into a breakfast room, boot room, utility and second WC. On the first floor there are five good-size bedrooms including a stunning principal bedroom with en suite and views over the gardens, plus an additional well appointed family bathroom shared by the remaining bedrooms. On the second floor there are a further three bedrooms (one currently used as a home office), with one having an en suite shower room.

    Outside, the property is approached from a quiet lane via an in and out driveway with pillared entrance and wrought iron double gated access, which in turn leads to a large gravel driveway which sweeps around the front of the property and provides ample parking. To the front, the property is flanked by an array of mature trees with traditional estate fencing and an expanse of immaculately presented lawned gardens.

    The property itself is set in attractive parkland style grounds of about an acre with fantastic open field views with beautifully maintained and established gardens which offer a wide variety of specimen trees, topiary hedging, herbaceous borders and planted beds, fruit trees and climbers. The park-like grounds wrap around the house and include an expansive lawn with numerous seating areas to soak up the the delightful and tranquil surroundings.

    To the far end of the gardens, there is an attractive Georgian garden house which is currently used as a games room which could be converted into ancillary accommodation with stable block and workshop to the side. There is also a useful brick built outbuilding and vegetable garden set behind a private walled garden.
