With origins dating back to around the 17th century and listed Grade II as being of specific architectural and historical significance, Hepworth Hall is a much improved family home boasting a fine Georgian facade complemented by particularly elegant accommodation and mature grounds of around 0.64 of an acre. The house retains many original features including fine fireplaces, sash windows, polished brick and wooden flooring and original Georgian staircase.

The beautifully arranged accommodation currently in brief comprises: panelled entrance door opening to a reception hall with a fine staircase and brick flooring. A door leads to an elegant sitting room with a traditional style open jet master fireplace, sash windows to front and side and built in cupboard. The formal dining room is an excellent room for entertaining, complemented by an open fireplace with an Edwardian surround and mantle, sash windows to front and side and built in cupboards. The family room is a charming reception with fireplace, pamment floor tiles, secret door to wine cellar and French doors opening to the rear gardens. A farmhouse kitchen acts as the hub of the house, retaining a pamment tiled floor and fitted with a range of oak units with preparation surfaces and built in oven and hob, with a particular focal point being the electric four-oven Aga (yellow). From the kitchen, a secondary staircase leads to first floor, and door leads to a scullery/utility, walk in pantry and ground floor shower room. A fantastic bar area and wine cellar has been created (wine and storage bins not included!).

On the first floor is an elegant galleried landing with mural, airing cupboard, and back staircase descending to kitchen. The five delightful bedrooms provide excellent views across gardens and countryside beyond, one complemented by an en-suite shower, and a generous family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation.

Outside
The house enjoys a rather grand carriage driveway approach, leading to the front of the property and to the more recently built garaging with studio above and balcony overlooking the rear gardens. The mature and well maintained grounds provide the occupants with a good degree of privacy and include formal lawned gardens, heated swimming pool with pool house and a large pond creating a haven for wildlife. There are a number of useful converted outbuildings comprising guest accommodation/former cinema room, games room and garden room. The gardens are a particular feature of the property, and the house stands proudly within the centre of the plot which is thought to extend to about 0.64 of an acre (s.t.s).
