History

Created from a delightful rural mansion in the most tranquil of countryside settings, these spacious two bedroom apartments offer modern day living within a gracious Georgian country house. Over the past two centuries, Lea Hall has been home to one of the aristocratic Leveson-Gower family, the Meakin pottery family and Dr Francis Hickin-Northen who helped Charles Darwin's father with his home visits. During the second world war, Lea Hall was a base for the 'Land Girls'. Now you could make it your own home. Arrive at the gates of Lea Hall, drive up its long driveway to the privately positioned house which looks out over your own sensational, unspoiled view of the English countryside, leading your eye to the Wrekin on the Shropshire/Welsh Border and to the Welsh hills beyond. Rarely do such homes come onto the market and this is a unique opportunity to own one of just three lovely apartments in this beautiful house, each apartment offering this amazing view. Lea Hall is just four miles from the much sought after village of Eccleshall, ten miles from the M6 motorway and twelve miles from the county town of Stafford from which there are fast train services to London, Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool. Each apartment retains period features whilst offering modern facilities, two dedicated car parking spaces as well as dedicated garden space.
