Description

Hurn Court was the family seat of the Earl of Malmesbury from the 1700s and has an interesting and well documented provenance including Royalty and other notable historical figures such as Handel, Lord Nelson, author Henry Fielding and Edwardian hostess Lilly Langtry. The surrounding farmland beside the River Stour is retained to this day by the current Earl of Malmesbury's Estate whilst the stately communal parkland in which the house sits is professionally managed and maintained.

Heron Lodge comprises the South West portion of Hurn Court being attached to the remainder of the house by only one wall and provides extensive and well proportioned accommodation over three floors around an exceptional reception hall/atrium providing natural light to the heart of the property.



Accommodation

The accommodation extends to approximately 5215 sq ft/484 sq metres and is particularly light and spacious with all principle rooms facing south offering commanding views over the parkland. Original features such as shutters, fireplaces and flagstone floors have been retained preserving the character and style of the property while living space has been generously configured to include the provision of en-suite bathrooms and dressing rooms. The third floor provides flexible suite accommodation for staff, children, guests, leisure, offices or a combination thereof. Of particular note the property features a private courtyard ideal for al fresco dining, a walk through wine store adjacent to the dining room, a drawing room balcony, a versatile studio room with conservatory style roof-light and the unique oriel widow to the master bedroom.

Outside the property enjoys private lawns to the South and West, a double garage, reserved parking spaces, ample visitors parking and use of the magnificent communal grounds which include two tennis courts. The property is connected to mains drainage, and independently metered gas and electricity services. The freehold of the house and grounds is owned by the eight main house properties who granted themselves199 year leases in 2008. The management company is controlled by the eight main house properties with a professional managing agent employed. The annual maintenance charge for Heron Lodge will be approximately £5,000 and includes maintenance of the house, grounds and buildings insurance.

Heron Lodge affords great scope for living and entertaining on a grand and elegant scale whilst providing a superbly comfortable, secure and cost effective home. The property has been beautifully refurbished to the highest standards by the present owners and is offered for sale in immaculate order throughout.
