With its grand spiral staircase leading to the oh-so-elegant Hall, Hallsannery House offers a ‘dash of Downton’
Painstakingly refurbished in 2013 and staying true to its early Victorian roots, Hallsannery combines period elegance with modern comfort. Framing the stunning views over parkland, Estuary and to the hills beyond, full-length sash windows flood the house with light, whilst original cornicing and features abound.
The Morning Room
Nicknamed ‘the gentleman’s room’, the morning room exudes proportions and possibilities of days gone by. With plenty of seating to accommodate a gaggle of guests, views over the front lawn and estuary and a large smart TV, the morning room is ideal for watching your favourite sport or snuggling up in front of a film, setting up a board game or an impossible jigsaw or enjoying drinks and chat with family and friends. And if you can’t escape daily reality completely, the corner desk ‘with a view’ provides the perfect spot to quietly catch up on work or emails.
The ideal retreat for small (and not so small) kids! Boasting a large smart TV, buckets of toys, oodles of books and a pool table, there is plenty here to keep young – and not so young – entertained. With interconnecting doors to the drawing room, you can either open up for a larger entertaining space or keep them closed and a tad more cosy.
The Drawing Room
A dual aspect haven of beauty and peace, the opulent drawing room represents the best of days of old. Curl up on the Chesterfield sofas in front of a roaring fire or fling open the doors to the east lawn and let the warmth flood in, dust off your playing skills on the Bechstein piano or enjoy pre-dinner drinks in style before your dining room feast. For the ultimate in early morning decadence, sneak down before everyone else is awake and luxuriate in a book and a coffee to the sound of… silence.
With its statement lanterns, polished wood floor, ornate cornicing and elegant pillars, the hall offers a stunning welcome to Hallsannery. Leading onto the three reception rooms and merging into the exquisite spiral staircase, the hall lends itself to pre-dinner drinks, after-dinner speeches and spectacular photos. Playing host to the light-bedecked 10 foot high Christmas tree throughout the festive season, it’s not hard to see why this beautiful space ranks high in the memories of returning guests.
