Historic hall on market for £2.35m

News | Published:

A historic stately home resting in three acres of countryside has been put up for sale for £2.35 million.

Wrottesley Hall in Codsall features three large Georgian-influenced houses set in stunning landscaped parkland.

The original hall was built as the seat of Lord Wrottesley in 1696 and stood within grounds of 2,000 acres.

After it was destroyed by fire in 1897, it stood as a ruin until 1923 when the fourth Lord Wrottesley built a smaller home using the same foundations in 1923.

The estate was broken up in 1963 and converted to house three independent properties, although many original features remain such as a clock and bell tower.

All three homes on the estate are currently owned by the same family who intend to sell the component parts in one transaction.

The main building, Wrottesley Hall, features 14 rooms including an elegant drawing room, a large hall with an ornate staircase and four large bedrooms.

It is flanked on either side by two other sizeable properties, The West Wing and The East Wing. There is also garages for up to nine vehicles.

The entire property has been put on the market by the Tettenhall office of estate agents Berriman Eaton.

Nick Berriman, a partner in the firm, said the sale offers a unique opportunity to own one of the most elegant properties in the West Midlands.

"The land has been split between three members of the same family in recent years," he said.

"For them all to decide to sell at the same time represents a one time chance for someone to take over a truly beautiful residence.

"As a result we would expect a high level of interest."

Wrottesley Hall has been occupied by the same couple for the past 20 years, while their daughters each bought the freehold to the two wings during the same period.

Berriman Eaton also recently put The Ridgeway in Springhill Lane, Lower Penn, Wolverhampton on the market for £2.5 million, while the Grade I listed Georgian manor house Patshull Hall in Burnhill Green is currently the subject of an undisclosed offer.

Patshull Hall operated as a wedding venue until last year when it shut down with debts of £2.7 million.
