Built in the late 1800s, the East Wing at Ashwell Hall is a Grade II listed, 9 bedroom home set on a plot of approximately 1.5 acres. East Wing is now ready for its next chapter to be written by its next custodians.
A Showstopping Arrival
In gothic Elizabethan style, the East Wing is Grade II listed and constructed of ironstone with limestone detail set beneath the slate roof with carved finials on the gables. The impressive octagonal chimney flues – noted in Pevsner’s Buildings of England - add a dramatic statement to the home. The stone mullion windows are mostly sash, some with charming Tudor style arches to wooden frames - a shape reoccurring elsewhere within the home’s architectural interior.
At just under 6,500 sq. feet the accommodation at the East Wing is spread over four floors. As you arrive, a hallway with dramatic arched windows leads past a storeroom, the old laundry, and a series of stone steps to the front door. Once inside, the reception rooms are in an elevated position above ground level, and currently configured as a main reception hall with staircase, three reception rooms, a wet room shower room, and a kitchen with lobby area with stone steps that lead to the drive. Exterior double doors beneath the kitchen leads to the ground floor and a series of workshops, cold room, and wine cellar. The first floor layout features 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with the second floor currently configured with a further four bedrooms, storeroom, and a sitting area.
Gardens And Grounds
The estate’s shared driveway opens to the East Wing’s private drive with large parking area. A gate to the side leads to the mature grounds of approximately 1 1/2 acres with a yew tree lined avenue, woodland and lawned gardens. The home is in the most spectacular location, and just minutes away from Oakham, and is waiting for its next exciting chapter to be written by its next custodians.
Near and Far
Set on the edge of Ashwell village, and only minutes from the market town of Oakham, the East Wing at Ashwell Hall is surrounded by fields and woodland, providing a peaceful hideaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Rutland Garden Village is a stone’s throw from the East Wing, enabling you to wander, ponder and pick up seasonal plants, fresh fruit and vegetables and pet supplies. Furnish your home with stylish homewares from Barefoot Sunday before rewarding yourself with tea and freshly baked cake at The Cakery, all on site at the Garden Village. The village itself is home to an active village hall, with regular community-organised events.
