About this property

  • Burderop park is an outstanding Grade II* listed country house with scope to return it to its former glory.

    The property was created out of a mediaeval farmhouse, itself converted into a courtyard mansion house in the late C16. The C16 building was raised a floor by Smith and the whole stuccoed by Richard Huss of Derby; the dressings are in Cotswold stone from Bibury. The incredible principal staircase was placed in the mediaeval central courtyard which was roofed over and lit by a half-domed, octagonal lantern. Having been previously used as a commercial office this substantial country home extends to approximately 14,000 sqft and includes principle reception rooms complete with sash windows high ceilings and outstanding historical features. Externally there are gardens and grounds of approximately 9.5 acres including lawned area, tree lined avenues and woodland area.

    In addition there is a large original coach house and walled garden available by separate negotiation.
