About this property

  • Bunny Hall is a magnificent Grade I listed 18th century country house skilfully renovated and restored by the current owners to the very highest standards and offers a high degree of flexibility with two separate apartments with independent access within the main house which are carefully linked back into the main property if required. The principal range of reception rooms lie to the south of the house with glorious views over the restored gardens to the open countryside beyond. The leisure suite set within the historic north range of the property is quite stunning with heated secure, indoor pool, gym, sauna and steam rooms and a well fitted entertaining kitchen. Bunny Hall is a house of considerable character and particularly notable, with its easy access to a wide range of local and regional centres.

    One of the most notable features of the property is the historic North Wing of long chequered brick design with a tall narrow facade at the end crowned by a huge Elephantine semi circular pediment across the whole width and massively castellated tower above it. There are stunning views across the South Nottinghamshire countryside from the open topped roof of the tower building. On the ground floor the original porch area has now been transformed into a stunning Porche Cochere with plate glass inset panels and doors and the creation of a large adjoining Orangery with a finely detailed interior.

    The five principal reception rooms include the Orangery, stunning kitchen, principal drawing room, dining room and library. These rooms lie across the principal elevation of the hall with views across the formal gardens adjoining parkland and open countryside beyond.

    The principal upper floor is reached by a large wide dog staircase from the ground floor staircase hall. There is a circular glazed frosted dome allowing light to flood through to the hallway and the galleried landing areas. There are two additional staircases to the East and West Wings, providing both internal and independent access to the upper floors if required. There are two self-contained but linked fully fitted apartments suitable for guest or relative accommodation but readily linked back to the main house if required.

    The Leisure complex has a secure key coded access from the staircase hall with gymnasium area. Two separate changing rooms, Certikin steam room and sauna and an additional kitchen, return door to the side entrance hall. There is a magnificent heated indoor pool with electric controlled pool cover with an aspect out onto the rear courtyard and gardens. There are rooms over and a plant room with Calorex 6 dehumidifying unit and separate heating and filtration system.

    In addition to the principal living accommodation is the stunning tower structure, set atop the historic North wing of the main house. A staircase leads up through a number of floors to the tower roof, which offers glorious views across the grounds and the open countryside of Nottinghamshire and is a landmark structure within the area.

    Outside
    The grounds and gardens of Bunny Hall have been carefully renovated and restored by the current owners and extend now to about 14.5 acres. The approach to the house is through two sets of remote controlled period gates and a tree lined driveway leading up to the main house.

    A spur road leads off to a stabling, courtyard and garaging area with a surface manège and a parkland style setting. There are glorious formal gardens set close to the house with ornamental water features. Externally there is a full size fenced, all weather tennis court, with flood lighting with fine pavilion set to the side.

    There are generous lawns and wooded areas with lime tree walk leading down to the main entrance.

    Additional land (Lot 2) is available and amounts to a further 8.38 acres or thereabouts.

Additional information

  • Listed Grade I being of architectural and historic interest, Bunny Hall was built between the years of 1710 and 1725. The Hall was designed by Sir Thomas Parkyns (1662 - 1741), locally well known as an Architect and Wrestler. Sir Thomas is regarded by many to be the father of modern wrestling and the family crest may be seen on the norther elevations of the magnificent castellated tower structure.
  • The Hall was enlarged in the late 18th century with further additions being made in the 19th century by the second Lord Rancliffe. Of particular note are the fine reception rooms, each facing south with magnificent French windows overlooking the carefully reinstated and established gardens. The gardens and grounds which extend to about 14.5 acres provide an ideal setting for a house of such calibre and the current owners have carried out a careful measured renovation of both the house and grounds.
