Estate Manager's House

Written by The Webmaster

No two properties on the Bostock Hall Estate are alike, and so prices of homes can vary greatly depending on size, character, accommodation and private gardens. All properties have detached timber garages and allocated parking spaces, and residents have access to the Parkland’s communal gardens, a large lake with fishing rights, and a woodland walk through the mature forest trails.

The Estate Manager’s post was a most important one. He had responsibility over the gamekeepers and gardening staff, but most importantly over the agricultural development at Bostock.

In the 1930s, under the supervision of Captain Willia France-Hayhurst, Bostock became a model dairy farm with a dairy stock of around 60, together with a younger stock of around 80. The old Estate Manager’s house, originally built in 1880, is now a beautiful detached five bedroom, three reception room home.

The construction is a combination of hand-made red brick and white stucco render. With original dormer windows and imposing Victorian chimneys, it plays a unique and important role in the overall architecture of the Bostock Country Estate.

Inside the Estate Manager’s house, the feel is very much that of a country cottage. With huge oak beams and low ceilings, the house has a classic cosy feel.

The property has a private enclosed courtyard garden..

Please contact the relevant estate agent to view the property.
