A home that embraces the outdoors and cocoons you within its protective walls, Hindley Hall has been renovated, remodelled and reintroduced to the 21st century.
Swing open the castle-size door, and emerge into the entrance hall. Juxtaposing the high ceilings and grand open space of this traditional Victorian entrance hall. In this open space, architectural features vie for attention in all directions.
Serve up a feast for family and friends from the top of the range German kitchen. Thick granite worktops coat every surface, making way only for an immensely-sized AIMS Aga with additional gas hob. Discover the delights of the conservatory, a dreamy garden room which opens out through a set of bifold doors to the breathtaking Italian garden beyond.
Returning inside to entrance hall, and through the innovative glass doorway into the sitting room. Curves are a motif found throughout Hindley Hall, framed here in the fireplace and mirrored behind in the archway leading through to the dining room.
Step through the tinted glass archway and into the dining room. A grand formal feasting hall; gather with distinguished guests around the large table, hewn from eons old Italian marble. Look closely and see design features repeated throughout Hindley Hall, weaving rooms and spaces together: oak door handles and large dining room table, smoked glass bannisters and tables; marble staircases and table top inlays.
Returning out to the entrance hall ascend the beautifully curved Italian marble staircase, as light pours down from above. Feel the burn in Hindley Hall's private gym; with ample space for work out equipment and yoga mats. For a more leisurely pace, enjoy the delights of the sauna and infrared sauna. Or pot the black in the games room, located above the snug. Enjoy a drink out on the balcony, set over the conservatory and soaking up views over the Italian garden. Continue along to the first of three guest bedrooms. Also located on the next penthouse floor are two further guest bedrooms and a large double office with meeting area.
Return now to the top of the main staircase on the middle level. It's time for the masterpiece. There are master suites and then there are master wings. Three impressive rooms combine to form this luxury, private, master wing, featuring two grandly-sized ensuite bathrooms, two separate dressing rooms, the master bedroom and calming Zen room.
Grounds and outbuildings:
The extensive gardens and grounds at Hindley Hall are immaculately preserved by the groundsman who has maintained their appearance for 40 years. Amble around the cobbled footpaths to admire the willow trees, apple, plum, cherry and damson trees that fill the grounds with colour. At the climax of the driveway, a gravel courtyard accommodates up to ten cars, with a detached double garage which opens through a doorway at the back into the Italian garden. Meander along the cobbled path, past the signature sycamore tree, its autumn colours ablaze in the feature uplighting, before arriving at the stable block.
