A multi gabled timber framed house with a fascinating history dating from 1421 that has been exquisitely restored over the last fifteen years resulting in a country home of elegance and the upmost poise.

Burlton Hall is currently a cherished family home but has many incarnations throughout its history including time as a country house hotel. The future could offer many commercial possibilities including a wedding and events venue or other leisure use. This would be subject to the relevant planning consents being obtained.

Originally built on land, which during the reign of William the Conqueror was granted to the Abbey of St Peter and St Paul in Shrewsbury, Burlton Hall had a succession of both religious and aristocratic owners following the English civil war. Eventually the property came into the ownership of the Chambre-Vaughan family whose initials still remain on the gates today. In the late 1880's a dramatic architectural change took place resulting in the house we see today. Architecturally uniting Medieval and Victoriana this house tells many tales. The sale of Burlton Hall offers a new purchaser the exciting opportunity to live in splendid surroundings in a popular North Shropshire village. The atmospheric, gracious, elegant and well-appointed Grade II listed house has been renovated to the highest of standards. Careful consideration and immense attention to detail along with the use of high quality natural materials under the directive of local craftsman including Nick Over and Chris Ayres has resulted in a superb restoration.

The renovation and refurbishment includes a large family kitchen bespokely designed with oak cabinetry, feature pippy oak drawfronts, AGA and slate worktops. The bathrooms have been stylishly refitted and the restored windows are set amongst a plethora of exquisite period features that are both medieval, Victorian and reclaimed. These details include parquet flooring, ornate plaster cornices and ceiling roses, carved stone and wooden fireplaces, detailed architraves, important listed stained glass, panelled doors and two hand turned staircases. Of significance is the panelled entrance porch of reclaimed jigsaw carved panelling to both the walls and ceiling which reputedly dates from 1420 and forms an original part of the house. The carved boars head, seen over the entrance arch, is thematically repeated throughout Burlton Hall. This sensational and unusual entrance sets the tone of this incredible house.

Suitable for comfortable family life as well as entertaining on a grand scale, the light, gracious and vast internal accommodation is distinguished and sophisticated. With five principal reception rooms the ground floor is complimented by a part panelled parlour/sitting room and spacious back hallway from which the welcoming kitchen breakfast room leads. The comprehensively fitted boot room, utility, freezer room and two chamber cellar completes the ground and lower ground accommodation.

The superb staircase with feature lantern light rises to the large landing. Nine bedrooms, the principals with views across the parkland gardens, six bathrooms, one shower room and the first floor study completes the first floor accommodation. Bedrooms eight and nine could easily create a self contained flat ideal for staff/nanny/relative use.

Fixtures and fittings: Only those items known as fixtures and fittings will be included in the sale. Certain items such as the kitchen table made by Chris Ayres, garden ornaments, carpets and curtains may be available by separate negotiation.

Agents note: Burlton Hall is Grade II listed and a comprehensive history of the house is available on request from the selling agent.
