Loynton Hall is believed to have been built around 1671 by the Higgin Burne family, possibly over the cellars of an earlier house. It remained in their ownership until 1942 during which time the house evolved with later 18th Century Georgian additions. The current vendors have copies of two diaries of the Higgin Burne family in which life at Loynton Hall is chronicled over the 18th and 19th Centuries. It shows they had a fondness for acting and theatricals were often held at the house. Both provide interesting reading and facts which will be passed onto the new purchaser along with two large portraits situated in the drawing room.
Loynton Hall is a notable Georgian country house standing in mature gardens and grounds with far reaching views over its parkland and the surrounding Shropshire and Staffordshire countryside. Combining light and gracious accommodation the house is both ideal for comfortable every day living and large scale entertaining.
The house is well maintained and presented throughout while retaining many period features including intricate plaster work, impressive fireplaces and sash windows many with their original shutters. A part glazed front door with a fanlight over, sits between Doric columns and opens to an attractive hallway off which lead the drawing and dining rooms. Both have high ceilings and are lit by deep sash windows framing the views. A conservatory opens from the dining room with French doors to the side terrace and formal gardens. The kitchen is fitted in traditional style with granite work tops and a four door electric AGA with archway through to the adjoining break fast room. This is complemented by a utility room and guest cloakroom off the back hall from where this is also access to the extensive cellars and through to the separate flat.
Mahogany steps lead up from the central hall up to an attractive wide half landing and the traditional billiard room with an Adam style fireplace beyond. A mahogany staircase leads to a dividing landing and up to the six individually styled bedrooms. The master and guest bedrooms are to the front of the house and both have attractive fireplaces and the benefit of luxurious en suite bathrooms. The further bedrooms are complimented by a family bathroom and the rear bedroom has a spacious en suite shower room.
The flat comprises a fitted kitchen, sitting room, bedroom and shower room. It is either accessed by an outside door to the rear of the house or alternatively through a connecting door to the main house. It could easily be incorporated back in to the house for home office or gym if required.
Loynton Hall is approached through stone pillars and up a long tarmac driveway passing the parkland on your left and stunning views across Shropshire to the left. To the front of the house is a gravel turning circle and parking area and to the rear is a range of original coach houses and stables, now providing ample garaging, garden stores and work shop space.
The garden lies principally to the front of the house with sweeping lawns bound by a number of beautiful mature trees with the parkland, ideal for grazing livestock or horses, beyond. To the side of the house is a paved terrace with stocked borders and accessed from the conservatory, while to the rear is a gravel garden with further borders. In all the gardens and grounds extend to about 12.5 acres (5.07 ha)
