About this property

  • Burton Hall dates from the late 16th Century and is a fine example of the Elizabethan building period. The house is Grade II* listed and has been finished to an immaculate standard, providing a manageable, superbly proportioned country house suitable for everyday family life.

    A former cottage, “The Cheese Cottage”, is incorporated into the main living space but it could be used as separate ancillary accommodation if required.

    Burton Hall is approached via a double gated entrance over a cattle grid and gravelled drive, leading to parking areas at the front. From the front of the building, stone steps lead up to the original oak front door which opens into the hallway with impressive oak staircase.

    From the hallway there is access to the drawing room, study and formal dining room. The walls are panelled in English oak and there are two oak bolection fireplaces. There is extensive fitted oak cabinetry and a breakfront dresser in the study. A dumb waiter, wine fridge and hidden storage cupboard service the formal dining area. Accessed from this room is a further reception space, currently used as a music room.

    The lower ground floor is accessed via a staircase from the drawing room to a rear hallway with a door to the courtyard and a boot cupboard. The original 16th Century oak door opens to the bespoke oak hand painted kitchen. There is a central island, twin Belfast sink with mixer taps, cupboards, dressers and oak work surface, double fridge freezer, walk-in pantry, dumb waiter and a 4 oven 13 amp electric Aga.

    A wide opening leads from the kitchen to the ‘White Sitting Room' a family sitting/dining area with oak floor and woodburner. Also accessed off the kitchen is a utility room with cupboards, worksurface, wine fridge, plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer, and separate cloakroom with W.C.

    The principal staircase leads to the first floor where there are two guest suites, each with southerly views over the garden and countryside. The master suite, on the top floor, comprises a double bedroom, a sitting area with vaulted ceiling, en-suite bathroom, separate shower room and two walk-in wardrobes.

    On the lower ground floor, a passageway and a small flight of steps lead from the kitchen to The Cheese Cottage. The family room has a living area with a wood-burner and a study area. Beyond is a hallway with independent entrance door, 2nd utility and cloakroom with W.C. and a substantial well-fitted kitchen. On the first floor are two double bedrooms, both with vaulted ceilings, and a family bathroom.

    The gardens have been fully restored and superbly landscaped in recent years. The front garden is surrounded by a wall, with a gate leading into a semi-circular lawned area bordered with wrought iron railings and hedging. There is a parterre garden with clipped box and lawns edged with stone setts. Around either side of the garden are floral borders and a run of pleached hornbeam. A stone flagged path leads around the side of the house to a rose garden, patios, a gazebo with climbing roses and grassed areas interspersed with further rose beds.

    To the rear of the Hall is the main parking area which is accessed by vehicles over a side drive, which also serves the neighbouring barn conversions.

    A five bar gate opens to a wide gravel forecourt with central fountain. Opposite are the outbuildings: a triple carport, former garage (now a useful store), machinery store, outside w.c. and stable.

    Beyond the outbuildings is a private flagged terrace. A dwarf brick wall sub-divides the forecourt from the lawned rear garden surrounded by fencing and laurel hedging. The land falls gently away from the hall to a small lake which has a jetty and original well.

    To the east of the hall, and accessed via the former cottage, is a private walled kitchen garden, supporting several raised beds with a variety of different herbs as well as numerous trees, shrubs, climbers and perennials.

I love the seamless blend of period and modern finishes, creating a beautiful and functional space.
