IN SUMMARY Nestled in countryside surroundings stands the remains of Burlingham Hall, a 6.82 ACRE ESTATE (stms), formed of the original Estates Office, Grooms Cottage, Stabling and Coach-house of the original Hall which was demolished in 1952. STEEPED in HISTORY, the property offers an UNRIVALLED OPPORTUNITY to enjoy a TRANQUIL and SECLUDED SETTING close to the A47, with some 3900 Sq. ft of PROPERTY and STORAGE SPACE, and some 6000 Sq. ft (stms) of overall accommodation including AREAS of UNCONVERTED HAY LOFT, and a further 770 Sq. ft (stms) of outbuilding which back onto the WALLED GARDEN. Where the HALL stood, now an area of grassland, the DEER GRAZE and the HARES GAMBOL, with areas of NATIVE WOODLAND, formal gardens and the carriage driveway. The presence of a SWEET CHESTNUT GROVE thought to be some 450 years old suggests how far back the story of the estate stretches, whilst the CHARACTERFUL INTERIOR and space ensures there is plenty of room in the history books for the next chapter!

SETTING THE SCENE The property stands at the very end of The Green where a private road begins, accessed via timber gates. Sweeping around into the shingle driveway, there is of course ample parking, but also a hint of the countryside setting and views which will be enjoyed around the estate. The driveway loops around, and access leads to the front and rear of the property, and the various outbuildings.

THE GRAND TOUR The front porch entrance leads to a formal hall entrance, with pamment tiled flooring and magnificent Victorian 'Linen Press" salvaged from the Hall. A door to your left leads into the main sitting room, focused on the cast iron wood burner, with a high level window to front, pamment tiled flooring and stairs to the first floor landing. A door leads to the rear lobby and another leads to the adjacent study/bedroom - a versatile room which has had many uses over the years, with a further feature fire place and window to front. A further door leads to a self-contained lobby making this end of the property an ideal annexe or Airbnb unit, with a period style double bedroom leading off, complete with panelling, along with a family bathroom with tiled splash backs. The rear lobby provides a utility and laundry area with room for appliances and storage, whilst also leading to the rear garden. A fully tiled wet room is a welcome addition for a long day in the garden or the family pet, with a three piece suite and rainfall shower. The kitchen/dining room leads off the main hall, with a predominantly free standing kitchen, space for a Range style cooker, built-in pantry, and tiled flooring with under floor heating, which leads into the sitting/dining space which offers a fantastic view of the rear vista. The adjoining room is currently used as an Artists Studio, with a further external entrance and lobby, with windows to front and doors to rear. An adjacent storage room leads off. The first floor is mainly open plan, with the main bedroom area, built-in storage and garden views, with stairs to a bedroom/dressing room and further storage room beyond.

POTENTIAL IN THE MAIN PROPERTY Two further rooms, former stables, sit adjacent and enjoy a similar facade to the front, whilst a coach house with double doors form part of the same building, with potential to convert (stp). Upstairs, a significant hay loft which requires some attention could become a fantastic space with remodelling of the roof structure.

EXTERNAL BUILDINGS A range of five substantial linked outbuildings extend to 777 Sq. ft (stms). Currently used as storage and garden sheds, there is further clear potential (stp).

THE GREAT OUTDOORS With a sprawling 6.8 acres (stms) of grounds, a tour of the estate is the only way to truly understand the peaceful setting and vast array of planting and mature trees which exist. With fine specimens believed to be hundreds of years old, the plot is split into four key areas, including the front lawn (the site of the Old Hall), front woodlands, main formal gardens to rear and the walled gardens. With linear paths and flower beds, well maintained and manicured box hedging creates a grand feel, whilst hosting the outdoor kitchen and pizza oven. The walled gardens offer the original home of a large glass house, and now an ideal seating area with the wall as a backdrop. Further woodland leads off the walled garden, looping around to the front. An elaborate arched gate on the southern side of the walled garden known as 'Repton's Gate' and on the eastern boundary between formal gardens and the parkland beyond is a Repton Ha-Ha. Remnants of the formal gardens also include a Wellingtonia, magnificent Cedar and a huge Monkey Puzzle tree. The old Game Larder still exists, covered in Virginia Creeper. There is clear equestrian potential here.
