Endon Hall will be one of the finest country houses in Worcestershire to come to the market this year.
Worcester, England (PRWEB UK) 17 March 2012
Today, there are few country residences in the locality of this quality and that are as well-equipped as Endon Hall in Pershore, Worcestershire, states up-market estate agents Knight Frank.
This beautiful and immaculately presented landmark Georgian manor house stands proudly on an elevated position facing due south, commanding a splendid view of Bredon Hill and surrounded by beautiful countryside.
Endon Hall has undergone a comprehensive refurbishment under its current ownership. It is immediately apparent that an enormous amount of time and effort has been spent on remodelling and upgrading the infrastructure of the property, quite literally from the ground upwards; from replacing the drainage and plumbing systems and the necessary re-landscaping work required, to undertaking the costly jobs of re-rendering the façade, re-roofing the house and renovating the chimneys. The house has been finished to an extremely high standard.
The choice of high quality materials and the manner in which they have been used ensures Endon Hall has been firmly brought into the 21st century, and is now set up for many years to come, and is without doubt a superb family home of grand proportions and unquestionable taste.
The property is a fine example of a Georgian period house believed to date from the 1830s with decisive detailing, careful proportions and skillful use of light sources, and credit is due to the current owners for their exemplary refurbishment in which many of these period features have been retained.
As befitting a house of this stature, there are numerous imposing features including the grand pillared entrance to the front of the house. The interior boasts impressive chimneypieces and high ceilings and the striking arched reception hall is a Neo-Classical nod to the celebrated English architect Sir John Soane.
Of particular note are the light and spacious drawing and dining rooms, ideal for entertaining on a grand scale. The traditional features blend with inspired contemporary styling, with no expense spared by the commissioning of Worcestershire interior design consultant, Katy Rapp.
The most luxurious array of colourful soft furnishing, with bold striped rugs, oversized lamps and modern painted canvases and mirrors, includes a particularly dazzling chandelier formerly from the Savoy, and captures the same splendour one would see in the pages of World of Interiors Magazine.
The grand staircase with ironwork balustrade and polished mahogany handrail rises gracefully to an impressive long landing running the length of the house.
The generous layout of bedroom, bathroom and dressing room accommodation has been well reorganised to provide for both family living and to accommodate guests.
Outside, the property has a beautiful and well arranged mature garden with spectacular views across the Worcestershire countryside and beyond. The formal gardens have been beautifully landscaped and are a major feature of the property.
Leading out from the French doors to the south on the house is a large stone terrace ideal for summer entertaining, there also being a bright and stylish conservatory to enjoy the gardens throughout the seasons.
The grounds are otherwise largely laid to sweeping park-like lawns. There are two rose gardens and a tennis court and potential to install a swimming pool.
There are a number of mature specimen trees, shrubberies and flower beds that encompass the garden and a laurel-lined driveway with fine gravelled circular carriage park making an elegant approach to the front entrance.
Adjacent to the main house is a courtyard which comprises a car port, store room, wood store, flower rooms and greenhouse. Situated beyond, to the east side of the house, is a renovated detached 2 bedroom cottage within the original walled farmyard, which is accessed also by a separate farm drive.
Completing the extent of this estate, there is a machinery store beyond the cottage, and planning permission has been granted for an agricultural building in the area adjacent to the substantial stable block and yard, and all within a manageable 23 acres of land.
Will Kerton, office head at the Worcester Office of Knight Frank handling the sale of this property surmises “Endon Hall will be one of the finest country houses in Worcestershire to come to the market this year”… and certainly this presents itself as a remarkable opportunity for any discerning and aspiring country house owner.
The guide price is £3,000,000
