Halton Grange, on the edge of Wall village, is a magnificent country home dating back to 1913. Having been extensively refurbished, remodelled and extended in recent years, the house now offers a wealth of spacious and versatile accommodation to include a modern leisure suite, which will appeal to a variety of selective purchasers. The secluded position and superbly maintained grounds, gardens and paddocks, extending to around 12.3 acres in total, affords a great deal of privacy.
An entrance vestibule to the front of the property opens up to a formal reception hallway providing access to the first floor and ground floor accommodation including the garden room conservatory, sitting room and drawing room. A beautifully appointed dining room has a range of handmade display cupboards, fitted dressers and shelving by Edwin Loxley of Nottingham. The central hub of this large home is the fabulous Mark Wilkinson breakfasting and dining kitchen which was designed, crafted and installed to exacting specifications resulting in a space which is very well utilised with a multitude of modern fitted appliances by Miele and Gaggenau. The hand painted cream cabinets are complemented by striking black granite tops and a range of other furniture including a fitted dresser. The kitchen is equipped as much for everyday dining as for catering to large parties and is supplemented by a large laundry room with six integrated freezers, a chilled walk-in pantry and a wine store. Whilst there is access from the kitchen directly into the formal dining room, there is also ample space in the kitchen itself to offer everyday dining as well as a sitting area. Glazed panels and doors to the rear ensure this area is flooded with natural light.
A large games room can be accessed from within the house or via a door to the front of the property and in turn leads to the leisure suite. An inviting 12m x 5m swimming pool laps up onto the Greek stone floor which reflects natural light pouring in from skylights, glazed panels and doors opening to the rear courtyard. This luxurious area is a space to relax and perfect for entertaining. Swim lengths of the pool or wind down in the infinity style jacuzzi. A mezzanine cocktail bar overlooking the pool has a dedicated self-contained bar kitchen with fridge, dishwasher and sink. A changing and spa suite contains a steam room, solarium, shower and separate cloakroom.
To the first floor is a very spacious landing which has been fitted in part with study furniture to provide an office. Three double bedrooms and one single, all with fitted handmade furniture, benefit from the use of two modern family bathrooms, the larger of which has a separate shower cubicle. The sumptuous master suite has a large range of fitted, handmade furniture and a luxurious en-suite bathroom with central roll top bath and a separate shower with rinsing/massaging jets. All of the bedrooms are extremely well appointed and have the advantage of beautiful garden views.
Accessed from the road through electronically controlled entrance gates, a gravelled driveway curves around to meet the house at the front. An integrated double garage sits under the annexe flat and adjacent to the games room. Halton Grange sits in around 12.3 acres in all which is made up of French parterres de broderie gardens as well as formal lawns, a kitchen garden with greenhouse, woodland, an all-weather tennis court and 10.51 acres of paddock fields. Outbuildings include a large professional workshop, gardeners WC, stone built coal house and oil store, along with an excellent tack room and stables. There is power, water and well placed lighting throughout the gardens.
