A quite remarkable Grade II* listed country home set in glorious landscaped gardens.
Dean Hall is a majestic Grade II* listed country home situated in the heart of Gloucestershire. Arguably one of the finest estates in the area, it has an embarrassment of character and charm together with natural beauty.
Enjoying a private position, it sits within land and gardens equating to 3.7 acres, all of which has been painstakingly landscaped by the current vendors. Thought to date from the early 17th Century with later additions, the principal accommodation is set over three floors and equates to a very substantial 9,821 sq ft of traditionally styled living space.
As you step inside, the grand reception hall sets the tone for the rest of this remarkable residence. The ground floor seamlessly connects the main living areas, creating a sense of space and effortless flow. The reception rooms are magnificent, all of which have an enviable array of original features which serve as a constant reminder of its rich history.
The drawing room is of particular attraction, of dual aspect with views over the garden it has an open fire with decorative surround. In addition there is a traditional billiard room, and a beautiful day room which affords the ideal place to rest, read or simply enjoy a morning coffee.
The country-styled kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of units, integral appliances, a dual Belfast sink, and an AGA together with a number of features which include exposed ceilings beams, an open fireplace and a quaint butler's pantry. Furthermore, there is a fitted utility room, boiler room, and a very useful store room.
The first floor offers a wealth of bedrooms, all of which are of an excellent size and enjoy pleasant far-reaching views. Three of the four bedrooms have the benefit of en suite facilities, whilst bedroom four is served by a separate bathroom. The size and stature of the home has allowed for both a drawing room, furnished with handprinted Chinese wall paper designed by Alyson McDermott, and a separate sitting room with a kitchenette to be positioned on the floor. It supports the ability of multigenerational living or to be used as a holiday let or staff accommodation. The second floor consists of three further bedrooms, a very spacious bathroom, a library and a versatile store room. The cellar is in good order and is highly spacious allowing for plentiful storage.
The outbuildings and barns are particularly beautiful and typify country-living at its finest. Stone built and set under a tiled roof, they exude character and charm. The coach house has an interconnecting door to the double garage which has two double doors opening into the courtyard.
The gardens are an exquisite addition to the estate having been landscaped and crafted by the vendors. Secure electric gates open onto a long drive which leads to the principal entrance and to the central courtyard. The formal garden enjoys a number of themed areas and is interspersed with herbaceous beds, flower borders, mature trees, shrubs and plants. There are areas of wild garden, an established kitchen garden with a greenhouse, open-lawn areas, and a number of idyllic seating areas. Bounded in main by hedgerow, fencing and an attractive stone wall there is a delightful lawn tennis court together with attractive countryside views.
