Wyfold Court is a magnificent Grade II Listed Gothic mansion built between 1872 and 1873. Designed by the architect George Somers Clarke, a pupil of Sir Charles Barry and renowned for his design of the Palace of Westminster. In the late 1990’s PJ Livesey and English Heritage, converted the mansion in to eleven spectacular apartments, with No2 occupying a significant corner of the building. An ornamental carriage entrance with timber doors leads the way into a communal reception hall. The inner hall, with chequerboard floor tiles and marble pillars is said to be a copy of a similar corridor found at the House of Commons. Resplendent with period grandeur the feeling is enhanced by an impressive 43 ft high grand stair case, crafted in teak with beautiful stained glass windows featuring past Kings and Queens of England. The apartment offers over 5371 sq feet of accommodation and is arranged over three floors. Access to the apartment is from the ground floor where the entrance hall provides access to principle reception rooms and kitchen/breakfast room all of which have breath-taking views over formal gardens and surrounding countryside.
There is much to be admired in the drawing room; the 20 ft high ceiling, ornately decorated with painted plaster mouldings, an outstanding carved timber fireplace housing a wood-burning stove and full height windows providing wonderful views and a door to a private area of garden.
There is a well-proportioned bedroom suite, with an impressive original carved stone fireplace and a cloakroom located on the ground floor.
From the hallway, stairs lead up to a mezzanine comprising a sitting area and a fully fitted study and a central staircase that turns providing access to the bedroom accommodation. The first floor offers two further bedrooms each with en-suite facilities and a second staircase leading up to the second floor where there is a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a door out to a balcony with breathtaking, far reaching views.
