More Hall is an historic Grade II Listed house on the edge of the Peak District National Park.
More Hall dates back to the 16th Century, owned by Thomas More of More Hall. More of More Hall features in a ballad - The Dragon of Wantley, which was performed as an Opera in Covent Garden and Haymarket in the 18th century.
The house has been restored by the current owner offering beautifully proportioned accommodation, predominately facing south, with lovely views. The principal reception rooms are ideal for entertaining and family life, and have been decorated.
There remains a double bedroom/box room and an en suite bedroom above the kitchen to be decorated, to suit the next owner’s requirements.
There are up to 7 bedrooms including the 2 bedrooms requiring refurbishment. The principal bedroom with a bathroom adjacent is of particular note for its size, exposed floor boards and 2 sash windows overlooking the garden.
The house is set in 2.17 acres of mature grounds including ponds, an orchard and a woodland garden with a great show of daffodils in season.
To the front of the house is a stone flagged terrace overlooking the front lawn.
The house is accessed from a private lane onto a parking area, where there is a double garage.
