FANCY buying your own piece of Regency elegance set in glorious countryside? Well if you’ve got a few spare quid to spare, a new house on the market near Daventry could be right for you.
Bragborough Hall and its estate, off the Braunston to Welton road, have been put on the market at a guide price in excess of £7 million for the 641-acre property.
The estate boasts the main house with its own tennis court and swimming pool, plus three flats, two lodges and a bungalow, along with extensive farmland, parks and gardens.
The acreage roughly equates to a square mile of land – if compared to Daventry town, that area would be large enough to take in most of Ashby Fields and the Drayton Fields industrial estate, all of the Headlands and Timken estates, plus part of the town centre and Drayton.
The Regency period house still has it’s butler’s pantry, back staircase, and servants’ accommodation rooms on the second floor.
If space to entertain is a concern, the main house has a sitting room, dining room, family room, drawing room and library, plus and entrance hall and reception hall.
Alex Lawson of Savills Rural Agency said: “The attraction of Bragborough Hall estate is that it really is the complete package and unspoilt by unsympathetic modernisation, like so many properties of its calibre.”
The 641-acre estate is focused around the main house, but also includes fields to the north of Braunston and near Welton.
The estate also has its own established game shoot.
If all that sounds a little too much for one buyer, the estate is being offered as a whole or in six lots.
And there’s some history to the hall too, the Grade II listed house is mentioned in Pevsner’s famous guides, and it contributed significantly towards the country’s war efforts.
Between 1939 and 1945 during the Second World War, the hall was used as an evacuation maternity hospital from London’s St Barts Hospital and Hackney Mother’s Hospital in east London when both suffered bomb damage.
Bragborough Hall is on the market with Savills and Fisher German.
