A diverse country estate with an imposing Grade II* Listed country house situated in a beautiful position overlooking its rolling parkland together with 404 acres
The Heath House estate is a superb country estate in Staffordshire, located almost equidistant between Manchester, Nottingham and Birmingham.
At the heart of the estate is an exceptional 19th century principal house designed and built by Thomas Johnson of Litchfield in Tudor Gothic style, and listed Grade II* for its architectural and historic importance.
The mansion's commanding position within traditional mature parkland allows for impressive far-reaching views across the Staffordshire countryside. The mature gardens, which include formal lawns, rose gardens, a remarkable orangery, pergola, lily ponds, an historic rock garden and specimen trees, provide a wonderful setting for the house.
The current owners have established and run a wedding and events business at the house and grounds. Within the estate are four cottages which provide excellent accommodation for extended family members, guests and staff, or for residential lettings. There is also a large farmhouse which is occupied under an Agricultural Holding Act (AHA) tenancy.
The mixed rural estate surrounds the principal house and grounds, providing privacy. There are approximately 257 acres of farmland, the majority of which is occupied under an AHA and parts are occupied under farm business tenancies (FBT). There are also areas of strategically planted, mature woodland which offer wonderful amenities to the estate as well as cover for the established shoot. In all the woodland extends to about 80 acres. The combination of rental income and venue related revenue currently contributes a diverse income.
The comprehensive surrounding estate allows a purchaser to explore further farming opportunities, shooting, country pursuits, scope for additional enterprises, as well as additional accommodation and income potential. In total, the estate extends to around 404 acres.
