THIS IS THE BEST THING I’VE EVER SEEN
‘A most delightful Grade II Listed detached property constructed of dressed Ashlar stone offering extensive accommodation with many retained period features, yet having been sympathetically upgraded and improved to provide comfortable living accommodation for a family, set within this highly favoured and popular village of Winster which lies within the Peak District National Park and being recorded in the Doomsday Book of Winserne, the property is believed to have been the former home held by Henry de Ferrers at the time of the Conquest.’
‘The celebrated architect Norman Shaw designed the original house The Hallams in 1903 and the Coach House, now Hallams Court, was later extended in around 1953. However, over recent years it has been lovingly restored to its former glory by the current vendors, almost without recourse to cost. Beautifully symmetrical, Hallams Court benefits from a very logical layout, with a good flow between the key reception rooms, ideal for family living or lavish entertaining alike.
Internally, the rich, polished oak panelling (most obvious in the grand Entrance Hall and Billiards Room) looks as if it has been there since the turn of the last century, and the majestic barley twist balustraded staircase - with a wonderful galleried landing incorporating a first floor Library - is a feature in its own right.’
“A handsome Grade II listed Palladian house with earlier origins being of architectural importance set in gardens and grounds of about 15½ acres (6.5 acre formal and informal gardens plus 9 acre paddock) including a 1½ acre lake. The property is described as a Palladian Villa, which has been significantly extended. The front elevation has the classical proportions of the period, constructed in brick, finished in render under a slate roof. A Modillion eaves cornice lies below the parapet.”
