    About this property

    • Wallace Hall is an exceptional country residence which was renovated and extended by the current owners in 2007. To the rear of the property a barn was built on the site of an original outbuilding and again the building is finished to the highest design quality. The barn provides superb ancillary accommodation which could be used as a granny annexe, or base for a small business.

      The renovation work in 2007 including re-plastering, re-decorating, re-wiring and re-plumbing with a new oil fired central heating system being installed with a combination of new vintage style cast iron radiators and underfloor heating. All the windows (sash and case) have been renovated, draft proofed and fitted with an easy opening system and an extension was also added to the rear of the property to provide a study, rear hall, cloakroom and family bathroom with dressing room. The internal fittings are of the highest quality and include Duravit Stark bathrooms with Hansgrohe showers, and bespoke handmade cabinetry in the kitchen and utility room.

      The accommodation on the ground floor begins with an entrance porch which leads into a beautiful reception hallway with marble tiled flooring. The elegant drawing room has a sandstone fireplace and Clearview multi fuel stove as does the sitting room. A formal dining room has French windows opening onto the garden. The kitchen is stunning, with an extensive range of handmade bespoke oak and painted cabinets by Hiddleston Joiners including an integral wine rack, polished granite worktops, a central island and a classic four oven Aga. There is a breakfast room to the rear of the kitchen with oak patio doors leading to the terrace. A fitted utility room, study and cloakroom/WC are all to be found on the ground floor. There is a basement area with two large cellars.

      Upstairs on the first floor there is an impressive master bedroom with triple windows and beautiful open aspects and an en suite Duravit bathroom. Bedroom 2 has a Victorian cast iron fireplace as do bedrooms 3 and 4, both of which also benefit from en suite Duravit bathrooms. Bedroom 5 has delightful open aspects and the family bathroom on the first floor comprises a Duravit suite. The accommodation on the first floor is completed by a dressing room.

      To the rear of Wallace Hall is a barn which was built in 2009 and designed and finished to an exceptionally high standard with all windows being double glazed or Velux. On one side of the ground floor is a double garage, and the other side houses a newly fitted kitchen with a fine range of base and wall mounted units which is open plan to a large reception room. There are bi-folding doors leading to the garden. A staircase leads up to the first floor where there is a generously sized, light and airy living area, floored in oak with a Clearview log burner. This space could also be utilised as a bedroom. A store/study and bathroom with Duravit suite complete what is essentially a fantastic self contained apartment.

      The gardens and grounds surrounding Wallace Hall are another notable feature and extend to about 1.8 acres with tarmac driveway to the front of the property. The garden is mainly lawned with a wide range of mature trees and shrubs. The terrace provides a useful extension of the accommodation for summer entertaining being accessed by the patio doors from both the kitchen and dining room. There are beautiful open aspects beyond the gardens to the surrounding farmland and hills beyond.
