Historical mansion’s gatehouse with four bedrooms for sale at next Bond Wolfe auction
A gatehouse to a Grade I-listed mansion in the Midlands that dates back nearly 300 years is one of the star properties in Bond Wolfe’s next auction in July.
The East Gatehouse at Patshull Hall in Burnhill Green, east of Wolverhampton in Staffordshire, will appear in the livestreamed auction on 13 July with a guide price* of £182,000+.
Ron Darlington, consultant director at Bond Wolfe, explained that Patshull Hall is a substantial Georgian mansion house and one of the largest listed buildings in the county.
The hall was built to designs by architect James Gibbs for Sir John Astley in around 1730 and is set in a park of some 340 acres that was created by Capability Brown and includes a large serpentine lake.
The property has had various uses since the turn of the 20th century, including operations as a rehabilitation centre, an orthopaedic hospital and a private school.
It then went through a significant period of decline before it was bought and restored for use as a wedding venue.
In 1990 the estate was broken up with many acres sold off for the creation of the adjacent Patshull Park Hotel, Golf & Country Club.
Patshull Hall itself was bought in 1997 by Neil Avery, a renovation specialist and entrepreneur, and the renovated hall was later purchased in 2015 to be used as a private family home.
Mr Darlington said: “This property offers a unique opportunity to acquire a four-bedroomed mews house formerly part of a historic listed building nestled in outstanding and extensive parkland.
“The East Gatehouse has a ground floor with a lounge, dining room, fitted kitchen with split level cooker, and an inner hall with an understairs toilet.
“Upstairs is a landing with two bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom, and on the second floor is a landing, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
“The property benefits from gas central heating and two allocated parking spaces that are around five minutes’ walk away.
“The village of Albrighton is a short drive away with a range of local shops and services, and the property is within easy reach of Shifnal, Wolverhampton and has motorway links via the M54.”
The East Gatehouse is just one of scores of properties appearing in Bond Wolfe’s auction which is due to start at 9am on Thursday 13 July.
The auction will be livestreamed via Bond Wolfe’s website with remote bidding by proxy, telephone or internet.
