A superb luxurious apartment within this historic listed mansion surrounded by parkland.
Wyfold Court Mansion is an immensely impressive Grade II* listed building, built between 1872 and 1878 for a Mancunian cotton magnate and Member of Parliament for Preston, Edward Hermon. The stunning building was designed by George Somers Clarke a pupil of Sir Charles Barry, who was involved in the design of the Houses of Parliament. Wyfold Court Mansion is reputed to be one of the grandest houses in the South of England and was converted by the highly respected country house developer P J Livesey in the late 1990s into eleven sumptuous apartments. During its restoration and conversion an enormous duty of care and understanding of the original design was incorporated into the conversion. Inspired by the French Flambuoyant Gothic style of architecture, there is elaborate lead cresting and finials on the steep roofs and richly carved dormer windows sit alongside striking stone, carved heraldic beasts. A vaulted carriage porch and vestibule lead into a large communal entrance hall with a tiled floor and then onto a spectacular 43' high grand staircase crafted in teak. There is a full height Oriel window filled with stained glass adorned with the arms of every English monarch from William the Conqueror to Queen Victoria and a number of fine, specially commissioned oil paintings decorate the walls.
