Further Information

The Henbury Hall Estate is among the most beautiful estates in England, particularly so in the North West. Indeed the exquisitely beautiful Palladian house is widely regarded as the most important country house built in the 20th century in England.

The style of the house is based on Palladio's Villa Capra, known as The Rotunda, at Vicenza, the best known English versions of which, both 18th century, are Mereworth Castle in Kent and Chiswick House in London.

Henbury Hall sits in a wonderfully commanding position with fabulous vistas in every direction over the Estate. In addition to the main house is the Tenants' Hall, which provides additional guest accommodation, and private gardens and grounds extending to about 12 acres.

These gardens are exquisitely beautiful with a series of lakes as the centrepiece, which are in impeccable condition. There is also a swimming pool, tennis court and stable block.

In addition to the principal house and Tenants' Hall there is a Grade II secondary house, The Cave, together with 5 further houses and cottages.

The whole Estate extends to about 530 acres, of which approximately 394 acres are agricultural land including parkland and a polo field, together with 108 acres of mature woodland.
