History and Heritage

Nestled amidst the scenic countryside and surrounded by Entwistle, and Wayoh reservoirs, No. 1, Entwistle Hall offers a delightful blend of history, charm, and modern comfort.

Recently renovated throughout, this Grade II-listed home forms part of what was once an E-shaped structure, serving as part of the Entwistle family's Great Hall in circa 1600.

The captivating stone-built exterior exudes an aura of the past, with its original Tudor elements thoughtfully maintained in the form of stone mullion windows and robust interior beams.

As you arrive via the lane, convenient parking awaits immediately at the front. Proceed to the front entrance, gracefully tucked beneath character-rich stone walls, setting the tone for a truly inviting experience.

A Warm Welcome

Step into the hallway of this newly adorned Tudor home, and you'll find yourself embraced by an atmosphere of timeless elegance.

The entrance beckons with a timber cream door, exuding a warm and inviting charm. Adjacent to this door, an arched leaded small window graces the wall, its upper portions adorned with intricate stained glass panels that playfully scatter multicoloured light upon the interior.

Underfoot, the newly laid stone-flagged flooring sets a sturdy foundation, resonating with echoes of the past while promising durability for years to come.

Direct your gaze upward, where a remarkable original oval floral ceiling rose captivates attention. This intricate piece of craftsmanship blooms elegantly overhead, a testament to the artisanal sensibilities of the Tudor era.

Practicality meets aesthetics as a fixed wooden bench stands against one wall, offering a place to rest or pause before proceeding deeper into the home.

Character Living

Step left into the living room, where a sense of heritage and modern comfort harmoniously coexist.

Defined by its lofty proportions, this space features a high ceiling adorned with criss-cross beams that showcase the architectural mastery of the era.

The walls, painted in a soothing white hue, serve as a clean canvas that complements the Tudor aesthetic.

Underfoot, the quarry tiled flooring offers a durable foundation that effortlessly bridges the gap between history and modern living.
