Kinlet Hall is a Grade 1 listed Georgian mansion, located in 100 acres of parkland, one mile from the main road. Until the summer of 2017 the house was home to an independent preparatory boarding/day school, and we still have school furniture, with some educational ventures still taking place in the building at certain times of year. The house is bordered by an 8-acre “walk” of planted trees and shrubs, including an abundance of rhododendrons, and some very old and very beautiful trees; the Norman parish church sits within the walk. The land surrounding the house is grassland, with arable fields behind. There are two nearby properties, and a home farm 1/4 mile from house. There is a large oval lawn in front of the house; at the back (the west front) there is a lawn with pebble walkway (no tarmac). Coming through the front door one enters a spacious entrance hall in classic classical style, with marble floor, and wooden pillars and pilasters. The room also features a large functioning fireplace. The entrance hall and side corridors have stone floors. The other ground floor reception rooms all have oak floorboards. There are three further reception rooms, one oak-panelled, one larger (approx. 11.2m x 7.7m). An elegant wooden staircase leads to the first floor. The first-floor bedrooms are high-ceilinged and spacious (e.g. 6.1m x 5.3m). The second-floor rooms have lower ceilings but are still spacious (e.g. 6.9m x 4m). One wing of the house contains the original 18th-century stables, with other rooms converted to classrooms. A subway runs under the house with interesting barrel-vaulted cellars. There are various outbuildings. The house is accessed by a one-mile drive. There is ample free parking on site. Storage areas: spare rooms in the house could be made available for storage - secure, weatherproof. Ample additional outdoor space if required.
