A Magnificent Manor

Grade I listed Queen Anne manor house in Bedfordshire for sale for a sum 41% lower than it was offered for in 2016

Built between 1710 and 1714 and much enlarged between 1859 and 1860, Hinwick House, near Wellingborough in Bedfordshire was described as a “celebration of Britishness” by The Telegraph in 2017. Its original inspiration was said to be Buckingham House – today known as Buckingham Palace.

 

Grade I listed and extending to 52,660 square foot including ancillary accommodation and outbuildings, this Queen Anne house has 5 reception rooms, 12 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. It comes with an 18th century clock tower, a dovecote, 4 staff flats, 3 cottages and for drinkers there are 3 bars even.

 

A Magnificent Manor – £8.5 million ($10.9 million, €10 million or درهم40.2 million) for Hinwick House, Podington, Wellingborough, Bedfordshire, NN29 7JE, United Kingdom through agents Savills – Grade I listed Queen Anne manor house in Bedfordshire for sale for a sum 41% lower than it was offered for in 2016.
Hinwick House was built for Richard Orlebar and his wife Diana Astry. Mr. Orlebar was said to have introduced the first pure-bred foxhounds to England. When he died, with no direct heir, the estate passed to his cousin, John Orlebar.

Constructed primarily of coarsed Ketton and Weldon limestone rubble with ashlar dressings, architectural details include Doric and Corinthian pilasters, balustraded parapets and a bas relief of Diana, wife of Richard Orlebar. The Victorian wing was designed by F. C. Penrose in 1860 and the “fine” interior includes a “magnificent” staircase by Daniel Wyman and plasterwork by John Woolston.

Renovated by businessman Sam Singh and his wife after they purchased the compact estate in 2014, the property has been used in the time since as both a family home and rented for parties, conferences and weddings. Guests have variously reportedly included Boris Johnson and there are rumours that the ghosts of four murdered soldiers buried under the building haunt the house.

 

Hinwick House – which is about an hour and a half’s drive from central London – stands in 37 acres of land that consists of formal gardens, a Georgian walled garden, an orchard, a deer park and a paddock. There are two lakes, a stream and areas of woodland also.

 

Agents Savills seek £8.5 million.

  1. Knock it down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a dump!!!!!!!!!!!! Ugly and draughty and totally gross!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF would anyone want this escapes my mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. So much potential. Lots can be done to make it a truly superb home. Beyond preserving the excellent work done by the current owners I would suggest the walled barns could be made into extra guest accommodation and perhaps an indoor swimming pool added. Such things can be done in a tasteful fashion and with respect to the heritage of the building. They would truly add value and if you owned a car collection they would make for great garaging too. Creating an equestrian course, stabling and a small pheasant shoot would be a wonderful project also… How I dream.
