The Mansion is a stunning Grade II listed 18th century Gothic-revival country house set in the Wall Hall Estate, 55 acres of rolling parkland landscaped by Humphry Repton. In the last century Wall Hall has been owned by the Banker J.P. Morgan who hosted country weekends and hunting parties, entertaining guests that included King George VI and his bride Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. When war broke out in 1939 the house was loaned to the US Ambassador to Britain, Joseph Kennedy, who used it as a country retreat for his wife and family, including his son John F Kennedy, the former US President.
Early in the 21st Century Wall Hall was sympathetically converted into just seven elegant residences. The Windsor Apartment occupies one wing of the house providing an impressive main residence with its breathtaking Baronial Hall, alongside an interconnecting second dwelling. The two have been incorporated to provide flexible accommodation for use as either one spacious family residence or separately if so required, providing the opportunity for annexe style accommodation for an older family member, teenage children, a member of staff or on a commercial let basis as a source of income.
On entering the property, a spacious reception hall leads to the main accommodation, including the adjacent annexe, an elegant staircase leads to the master bedroom suite while three wide and gently rising curved steps lead to double doors and the heart of this magnificent home, the Baronial Hall, within which the principal living accommodation is arranged. Beneath an ornate Barrel Vaulted ceiling, there are two double height bay windows, complete with original wooden shutters and stained glass panels, that flood the hall with natural light, provide access to the private gardens and offer exceptional views over the parkland estate. At one end stairs lead to a substantial mezzanine level providing spacious additional reception space and from where one can survey the full extent of the hall below. An impressive marble fireplace to one side adds to the stunning architectural detailing while a superb contemporary kitchen breakfast area sits beneath the mezzanine at one end. It in turn leads to a separate utility with independent external access.
The bedroom accommodation headlines with a generous master bedroom suite occupying the entire first floor. There is a dressing room and luxurious bathroom while doors open onto a large castellated roof terrace overlooking the garden and
grounds. Two further double bedroom suites, along with a guest cloak room and separate laundry complete the picture in the primary residence.
Secure gated underground garaging provides parking for four vehicles. Internal pedestrian access leads from the garage to the reception entrance hall of the main house and to two secure storage rooms. An exclusive residents’ gym is located on the private Estate near to The Mansion and a floodlit all weather tennis court can be found nearby.
