THE PROPERTY

A magnificent Georgian manor house standing in landscaped and woodland grounds extending to nearly 6 acres Windle Hall truly is a magnificent Georgian manor house of outstanding proportions. We understand that there has been a dwelling on the site since as early as 1200, however, the current house was constructed in 1782 with Victorian extensions to the rear. In 1860 the house was purchased by the Pilkington family remaining within the family until 2000, when our clients purchased the property. During their custodianship the property has been restored and renovated, and offers an exciting opportunity to a prospective purchaser to acquire a piece of local history. In all the house extends to in excess of 8,000 sq ft, with a range of outbuildings and greenhouses set in an original Victorian walled garden. The accommodation includes a fine dining hall, five reception rooms, a breakfast kitchen with further preparation kitchen, powder room and garaging, along with access to the useful cellarage. To the first floor the master suite enjoys the entire southern elevation with a dressing room, his and hers en suites and balcony. There are six further bedrooms (three en suites) over the first and second floors. Gardens & Grounds Approached via a long, private driveway, with electric gates to the private drive leading to the garaging and the large carport. In all Windle Hall stands in grounds extending to close to 6 acres, with its fine landscaped formal walled gardens with ornamental ponds and fountains, extensive borders, shrubs and walkways. Surrounding the south facing formal garden is an extensive woodland area with many mature trees, with pathways for one to enjoy the privacy and tranquility. During April and May the woodland floor is covered with an abundance of bluebells.
