Apartment No.20 is located in The East Wing of the sympathetically constructed building that matches the impressive structure of The Old Hall in both classic period features and grandeur. Enjoying a second floor position, the apartment boasts lovely views over the rear garden from the wrought iron balcony off of the open plan living area. The high ceilings and sash windows replicate the authentic style of a Victorian build yet modern day comforts such as underfloor heating throughout make for an efficient and easy to maintain home, ideal for a lock up and leave. It is worth noting that this home is under restriction meaning that it can only be used as a second home and not a primary address.
The full history of Hazelwood Hall could fill an afternoon with tales from its architectural design in the early 1800’s to 1945 when it was bequeathed to the Roman Catholic Church and laterally the Missionary Sisters of the Apostles in 1967. In 2005 it was acquired by renowned developers Pringle Homes after being run as a nursing home for quite some years. Pringle Homes began painstakingly making plans with ‘industry-leading architects’ to restore the building and grounds to its former Victorian glory, providing a total of 21 luxury second home apartments within both the original building and a second sympathetically designed ‘East Wing’ that seamlessly merges with the old. The 18.5 acre grounds of Hazelwood Hall were extensively redesigned by celebrated Victorian landscape garden designer, Thomas Mawson around 1945. Thomas Mawson’s gardens are infamous amongst the prestigious Landscape Architects of modern day and his book ‘The Art and Craft of Garden Making’ is now regarded as ‘the foundation of modern landscape architecture’. The former glory of these superior gardens has now been brought back to life with much care and they are a true wonder to behold all year round.

Outside The beautiful gardens of Thomas Mawson wrap around Hazelwood Hall and The East Wing, totalling in 18.5 acres of private lawns, woodlands, terraces and picture perfect seating areas. Inscribed on a stone bench that overlooks the terraces, the words "The kiss of the sun for pardon, the song of the birds for mirth, one is nearer God’s heart in the garden than anywhere else on earth" Dorothy Gurney (1858-1952), are said to perfectly summarise Thomas Masons intentions for this beautiful outdoor haven. Practically, electric wrought iron gates provide that added security you would want for a lock up and leave home. There is a large visitors parking area within easy reach and each apartment has a designated parking bay to the front of the buildings.
