Chapter One

At home

A magical Grade I listed house whose rich history has spanned the centuries to provide a warm and comfortable family home. Rudhall Manor sits in an enchanted private setting surrounded by beautiful gardens and grounds.

As a Grade l listed building it is only one of 30 private residences in the county and as such is one of the most special of houses in the whole of England. At its heart the house dates back to the 14th century or possibly even earlier but the most spectacular features belong to the 16th century.

The magnificent carved half-timber work is very impressive and the three gables on the north façade of the west wing are particularly fine and an interesting contrast to the delightful Georgian sandstone façade on the south side of the same wing. The original main entrance to the house has a fine Jacobean stone two storey frontier piece with coupled Tuscan columns and an adjoining Georgian Venetian window.

The main entrance today is approached by an imposing cloister porch leading to a magnificent carved oak front door. To the first time visitor Rudhall Manor immediately welcomes you with its warm tones, mixture of the grand and the cosy but most of all the enchantment of a long cherished home to a host of families over the centuries.

The history lover will particularly appreciate the extensive Tudor oak panelling, immaculate cornice work, historic fireplaces and exposed beams. The current owner has brought their artistic and Venetian heritage to the reconfigured the accommodation to provide an attractive overall balance and has maintained the property to a very high standard.

In the garden

The gardens and grounds make the whole setting complete and essentially a private paradise. Two terraces adjoining the house overlook an extensive lawn surrounded by magnificent specimen trees and clipped yew hedges.

It includes a historic county boundary marker. The lawns lead down to Rudhall Brook which enters the grounds via a waterfall and is crossed by a series of small bridges. The brook feeds two wonderful lakes providing a haven for birds and wildlife. The north west boundary includes an extensive rockery garden which is stocked with a wide variety of rare shrubs and young trees and intersected by
private pathways.

A woodland walk completes the enjoyment offered by this rural idyll. An array of outbuilding have been re-purposed for modern living and now include a heated indoor swimming pool and gym, a self contained studio apartment above significant garaging along with a green house and useful working spaces and storage.

We have lived in the house for over twenty years raising our three boys and could not have been happier. The brook provided endless happy summer nights on the water, sipping cocktails on the terrace as the sun set. The house is designed for family living in every way and has given us memories we will keep with us forever.
