On behalf of Nestseekers – East Midlands, SDL Property Auctions is selling The South Wing of Clifton Hall, a Grade I listed building with history dating back to the Domesday Book.
It is one of the most outstanding listed buildings in the area, nestled within the charming Clifton Village.
Stepping foot into the mansion is like being transported to the set of one of London’s high society balls, the Octagon entrance hall is a staggering 44ft high, and is one of the most spectacular features of the property, with a magnificent domed ceiling in the hall’s former watchtower.
The Great Chamber, also known as the drawing room, was completed way back in 1632. It has a unique, breath-taking ceiling as well as the historical ‘Clifton Fireplace’ which features intricate carvings of the Clifton Family crest. It is believed that The Great Chamber once played host to musical performances, banquets, and dances – perfect for your society debut!
The property also features a Red Room (also known as the Silk Room), which was once used by Lady Clifton to hang red silks that were brought back from China and features the history of nine generations of the Clifton family.
Royalty were never far away either, with the Hall once welcoming King Charles as its most illustrious guest, with the designated Pages’ Room on hand for the King’s pages to sleep as they stayed on guard. Perhaps Queen Charlotte could have visited as well?
Andrew Parker, Managing Director and Auctioneer at SDL Property Auctions, said: “It is fantastic to see a property such as Clifton Hall come to auction – it really is a sight to behold and almost has to be seen to be believed. At SDL Property Auctions, we pride ourselves on being able to bring any property to auction – from two-up two-down terraces to period estates such as this – it will be fascinating to see what it achieves”.
With nine bedrooms throughout the property, this would be the perfect pad to get together with your friends and organise your very own Bridgerton themed extravaganza – however it won’t come cheap.
The property is being offered for sale by Timed Auction on the SDL Property Auctions website with a guide price of £1,950,000+ plus fees, with the auction running until Wednesday 6th April at 2pm.
