Property description

The property
The Earl of Bradford built the core of Knockin Hall between 1690 and 1720 as his family summer residence. Since then, the house has evolved and been added to over the centuries. The property offers exceptional dining and entertaining space on the ground floor, with the windows providing a wonderful vista over the gardens and parkland beyond. The first and second floors comprise nine bedrooms and four bathrooms, ensuring good balance to the ground floor accommodation.

Entering the property via the stone portico, the reception hall, with a black and white tiled floor, flows into the formal and informal reception rooms. The drawing room and morning room benefit from south facing bay windows towards the Breidden Hill. The dining room is centrally located with access to both the kitchen and games room. The kitchen, along with the sitting/dining room, has been beautifully extended and refurbished under the instructions of renowned architect Graham Moss. The kitchen has a modern range of wall and base units together with a central island with granite work tops. The kitchen leads through an open arch into the 50ft open plan, dining/sitting room with under floor heating, open fire place, log burner and bay window. To the rear of the property is the back hall, comprising cloakroom and utility with connection to the range of outbuildings.

An attractive oak staircase leads from the hallway to the first and second floor landings, with a sky lantern above. On the first floor is the principal bedroom suite that has an adjoining dressing room and en suite bathroom with double sinks, free standing central bath and a separate shower. On the second floor is the guest bedroom with en suite bathroom. There are five further bedrooms and two bathrooms arranged over the first and second floors. Two further bedrooms are accessed from the back stairs, which links all floors. The hall also gives access to a large vaulted cellar, which connects through to the Farmhouse.

A second set of gates open to a gravel driveway, with an avenue of trees and a sweeping concourse at the front of the house. The driveway continues to the back where there is further parking and access to the astroturf tennis court, Courtyard Cottage, Megs Cottage and a range of versatile outbuildings. Accessed via a separate driveway is Knockin Hall Farmhouse, with its own private walled garden.

The Hall stands in glorious gardens with gravel pathways leading between stocked borders and well-manicured lawns to the productive walled kitchen garden and woodland walk which boasts an abundance of mature specimen trees and an array of rhododendrons. Two lakes bordered by beautiful irises sit centrally within the parkland style setting, whilst the sweeping lawns continue down to the orchard, and coppice of ornamental Himalayan birch.
