The complete restoration of Slade Hooton Hall, as well as the impressive indoor heated pool and numerous outbuildings, make it a truly charming property. James Fisher is watching.
One for the traditionalists among you, Slade Hooton Hall, in the village of Lawton near Sheffield, is William and Mary’s picturesque home set on 3¾ acres of South Yorkshire countryside.
Built in 1698 for the then Lord Mayor of London, John Mirfin, the house went on sale through Savills for £2 million.
This Grade II* listed eight-bedroom home has recently undergone extensive restoration and refurbishment, making it livable in the 21st century while also retaining its historic charm.
Housing with an area of more than 5500 square meters. feet is spread over three floors. Downstairs is a games room/cozy and utility room, while upstairs on the ground floor a spacious entrance hall gives way to a traditional kitchen with one of the largest stovetops we’ve ever come across.
This, combined with the wooden ceiling and terracotta tiles on the floor, gives the room a rustic feel.
Elsewhere on the ground floor you will find an intricately decorated living room with casement windows, frieze stucco and a molded stone fireplace. Adjacent to this is a formal dining room with matching casement windows with sills and a decorative cornice.
Adjacent to the house is a cloche-like conservatory with a lantern on the roof, perfect for enjoying the garden in more inclement weather, while the gardens and grounds, which are mostly turfed, have a barn with a heated indoor pool, a lake and jetty, and a small grove.
Lawton is a small village located 16 miles east of Sheffield. Major cities such as Rotherham and Doncaster (other than Sheffield) are easily accessible by car.
The village has several walking paths that lead to the local pub as well as Roche Abbey, while everyday amenities can be found in nearby Wickersley and Thurcroft.
Slade Hooton Hall is currently on sale through Savills for £2 million – see more photos or ask an agent for more information.
With wood paneling and armor in the lobby, the Home Counties Mansion is one of the gems on offer.
