This substantial and elegant country house has been recently refurbished with an eye to detail and high energy efficiency - it is effectively cost neutral to run the heating. Shirley Hall sits within its 33 acres of parkland and farmland at the end of a long carriage drive flanked by open land.

The house is Grade II Listed being of significant historical and architectural importance and is one of the most important and impressive private residences in the area. Its roots date back to Norman times (the original building and well, which is an interesting feature of the wine cellar, are recorded in the Domesday Book) and the current main house dates from the mid-19th Century. The house enjoys a rich and fascinating history. It was commissioned during WWII by the army and memorabilia from that time are preserved in the extensive cellars.

Extending to approximately 19,750 q ft. and featuring some spectacular ground floor reception rooms, the house has well-proportioned accommodation characterised by high ceilings, large sash windows and a feeling of space and light. The main reception rooms are arranged off the double height reception hall and interconnect with adjacent rooms, making the layout ideal for grand scale entertaining. The orangery/winter garden is a particular feature of the property and is a classic feature of mid-19th Century architecture living. The modern bespoke kitchen is well-equipped and has double doors leading out into the garden and nearby is a utility room, study and gym. The 8 first floor bedroom en-suites are accessed by a grand sweeping staircase leading to a wide galleried landing overlooking the entrance hall. There are 10 further bedrooms and 7 bathrooms on the second floor. A Sonos entertainment system is available in the main portion of the house as well as CCTV which includes the front and back electric gates.

The gardens and grounds are interspersed with magnificent parkland trees including giant redwoods, monkey puzzle, oak, horse chestnut and rare orchids. There is a tennis court, Victorian summerhouse and small walled garden. There are a further 4 cottages all providing substantial rental income, a coach house, car park and a magnificent stable block for those with equestrian interests. A biomass boiler provides cost neutral heating to the house. A former cattle building has potential for conversion and there is planning consent for a swimming pool within the grounds.
