"Shotley Hall is a historic Grade II* listed residence designed by the renowned architect Edward Robson in 1862 and constructed in 1863, an expression of high Victorian neo gothic architecture.The original owner was Thomas Wilson, who built the house from the wealth his family had generated from silver and lead mining.The opportunity of acquiring this impressive country residence has arisen due to our clients looking to downsize.The property has been in their family for over 150 years, so this is potentially a once in a life time opportunity to acquire probably one of the finest homes of its type in the north of England.The property consists of the main residence and a self contained 'wing'.
The design and interior fittings are influenced by William Morris, in particular the stained glass work in the three principal reception rooms and palatial hall some of which, we have been advised by the current owners, were created by Burne Jones and some by Morris himself.The majority of the stained glass panels have a musical theme.Other highlights include the two tiled roundels set in the dining room fireplace and the ornate leaf balustrading on the main staircase rising from the hall.Though improved over the years, many features of the period have been retained with beautiful doors, shutters to the ground floor rooms, ceiling cornicing, fireplaces and deep moulded skirting boards.The new owners of this residence will be acquiring a piece of history and an opportunity to make personal improvements over time.
Enjoying a secluded position on the edge of the highly sought after village of Shotley Bridge, the property stands in mature, formal parkland gardens of 3.2 acres, encompassing swathes of lawn to all sides, well stocked borders, a wealth of shrubs and numerous tall trees including a number of Giant Sequoia Wellingtonia.A burn meanders through the grounds and is an attractive feature of the gardens.
