Historic 18th Century Listed Grade II* parkland folly for sale in Horton, Northants

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , — David Taylor @ 12:58 pm

The Northampton office of Jackson Stops & Staff is bringing to the market an historic Grade II* parkland folly set in a superb landscaped garden and surrounded by open countryside.

The Menagerie, just outside the village of Horton in Northamptonshire, dates from the 1750s and lies in the park of the now demolished Horton House, which stood on the site of Queen Catherine Parr’s family home.

The building is one of the most important surviving works of Thomas Wright of Durham, the architect and astronomer, who designed it for the 2nd Earl of Halifax.

The Menagerie, with its fine Rococo plasterwork, includes 2 reception rooms, 3 bedrooms and 3 en suite bathrooms. Thatched garden arbours provide a further bedroom and a chapel.  There is also a shell grotto, renown garden plus garaging and extensive outbuildings.

In all there are about 1.76 ha (4.3 acres). Offers in the region of £1,600,000.
