Middlewood Hall at Worrall is a classic early C19 Grade II-listed hall set in 54 acres of parkland which was constructed originally commissioned in 1810 for a family of Sheffield steel forgers and later became a luxury hotel.

This splendid five-bedroom barn conversion, once the coachhouse to the hall, retains a stunning approach through beautiful parkland via a long drive studded with mature trees and with a wooded backdrop and distant views. Through substantial stone gate piers, this beautiful mellow sandstone home resides by a paddock, landscaped gardens, outbuildings and a double garage.The five bedrooms and lofty reception rooms are arranged around a superb two-storey galleried dining hall, with beams exposed to the ridge; light cascades through its massive stone archway with delicate lunette windows and french doors.There is fine detail all around. Neat coursed, hand tooled mellow sandstone walls sit beneath natural graded stone roof slates. Original openings are generous and flood the property with light and further styled with oeil-de-boeuf and oculus windows to the elevations and gable, each subtly framed with carved stone cavetto mouldings.On the ground floor double French doors open through the original broad stone archway with lunette window high above, the two-storey dining hall is open to the rafters revealing massive timbered beams in the purlins and trusses, a stair rises to a gallery where the view is most satisfying, and on to the master bedroom suite. The sitting room at the rear is a large later addition, also with soaring ceilings, a triple aspect and Georgian windows.A well fitted farmhouse style kitchen sits beside the reception rooms, there is a ground floor cloakroom, a store/boot room, a practically fitted utility and a spacious study room quietly tucked away.Bedrooms are split between the upper and lower floors where they are divided further to the east and west wing. At the east wing a double room served by a modern bathroom and to the west two well-proportioned doubles with a modern shower room suite.

On the market at £795,000. More details at www.onthemarket.com/details/5311490/
