The West Wing

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.

In the 19th century the estate was maintained by 105 staff and housed in the servants wing now known as The West Wing. Adjoining the main hall, this wing features some of the most beautiful architectural details on the estate.

The original servants’ quarters for the hall were beyond all reasonable cost for restoration and so demolished. The new building follows closely the line of the existing building and retains the ornate Stucco rendered facades that face the lake. Care was taken to replicate the former elevations using modern techniques. The main chimney stacks were removed brick by brick and stored for rebuilding to ensure that it retained its existing character with repair work being carried out on the stone capping details.

The West Wing, which comprises ten two and three-bedroom mews homes, is accessed via two separate enclosed landscaped courtyards and columned loggia; this provides individuality and charm to each property enhancing the overall living environment.

While the original accommodation was modestly appointed throughout, the new structure has been designed to maintain the old-world charm, but with the convenience of all that is expected in today’s modern lifestyle. The properties are all connected to the mains services with the benefit of double-glazed windows, roof and wall insulation and gas central heating. Each has a separate single or French door to the lake elevation, with its own patio area with a private path running parallel to the properties which overlook the ornamental gardens.
There are currently no properties for sale in The West Wing.
