The impressive entrance to Birtles Hall greets you with ionic stone columns before walking through into the grand entrance hall, with oak flooring and wonderful cantilevered staircase all lit by a dome ceiling atrium.
The apartment is adorned by wonderful period features such as exceptional ceiling height to the ground floor, mahogany doors, deep skirting boards, ornately coved and moulded ceilings and an impressive period fireplace to the bow-fronted drawing room.
A solid wooden door leads to Fytton Court’s private entrance hall which has a dome-vaulted ceiling with dog-tooth and egg and dark cornicing. The main drawing room is exceptionally spacious, with wonderfully high molded ceilings and beech flooring. The room is lit by floor to ceiling sash windows that look out over the stunning, wonderfully kept communal gardens and woodland. There is also a unique stone and marble fireplace surround with a living flame gas fire.
The master bedroom is generously proportioned and fitted with extensive wardrobes with a large en suite shower room off. The bedroom has large sash windows overlooking the beautiful gardens. The second en suite bedroom is idyllic with views of the north walled courtyard.
A mahogany staircase leads down to the lower ground floor level which has a large open-plan kitchen/breakfast room with wood units, granite worktops and a full complement of appliances. The large kitchen/breakfast room is open-plan to the dining area with two sets of French doors leading onto the private stone terrace. The good-sized study has a door through to the storage/ workshop which would make an ideal cinema room. This floor is completed by a WC and utility room.
Fytton Court forms part of the extremely impressive Grade II Listed Birtles Hall, which was built circa 1790 for the Hibbert family. This historic period gem is constructed of dressed stone Ashlar wisteria-clad elevations with Ionic porch and balustrading, all surmounted by a Welsh slate roof.
The artistry of the exterior is mirrored in the communal galleried entrance hall, with original sweeping staircase. The interior was extensively remodeled by Henry Sellers after a fire in 1938. Birtles Hall is not only a magnificent country house to look at, Fytton Court’s interior presents luxury living that is grand, secure and hassle-free.
