Views to a thrill at listed manor house.

Little Aston Hall has been converted into deluxe apartments WITH park views, acres of landscape grounds to admire and a lake to relax by, Little Aston Hall is a superb grade II listed manor house, tucked away in the sought-after village of Little Aston, Lichfield.

Built in the 1730s by Richard Scott - who also owned Great Barr Hall - Little Aston Hall was converted into seven deluxe apartments in the 1980s after having been the Esso regional headquarters and head office for Birfield Ltd. It was also bought by GKN in the 1960s.

Now, it's your chance to acquire your own piece of this historic manor house.

The three double-bedroom penthouse apartment - described by the estate agents as "probably one of the finest apartments in the region" - is now on the market.

You can't fail to be impressed.

The approach to the hall from the gated driveway is breathtaking and the building itself stands proudly and elegantly behind a circular lawn with a central pool.

As you'd expect for a grade II listed building, the hall and its apartments retain many original features, making it a quintessentially English property.

The pillared entrance opens into an imposing oak-panelled communal hallway and apartment 33 is located on the second floor, which can be reached by the main oak staircase or by lift.

The apartment is spacious at 1,737 sq ft and boasts a private terrace from which you can drink in the magnificent views.

Once through the private reception hall, there are a few stairs to the single-floor accommodation.

The refined drawing room/dining room (24' x 15') has tall windows that overlook the lawns and lake at the rear of the hall, while an additional window has views to the side gardens. Oak door and window frames, deep ceiling cornice, decorative plaster work and central rose add a sense of grandeur. The room also has a marble fireplace with timber surround.

The large master bedroom (24'1" x 14'1") with built-in wardrobes is light and airy, with three tall windows overlooking the grounds at the front of the hall. It has an ensuite tiled bathroom with spa bath pedestal washbasin and wc.

The second bedroom (11'9" x 11' 4") has wardrobes either side of the tall window that affords views of the gardens, while the third bedroom (12'2" x 11' 1"), which is currently used as a study, has a range of fitted furniture including wardrobes and cupboards.

A family bathroom is adjacent to the second bedroom and comprises shower enclosure, pedestal washbasin, bidet and wc. A guest cloakroom with wc and pedestal washbasin can be found off the reception hallway, where there is also an airing cupboard.

The breakfast kitchen is cottage style with white wooden cupboards and wall units that are offset with decorative blue inserts, blue worktops, inset one-and-a-half bowl sink, an in-built four-burner hob with extractor hood, built-in oven and plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher.

Space at the end of the kitchen allows for a small table and chairs by the window, which overlooks the gardens. Another luxury of this penthouse is its own private roof terrace, which can be enhanced with containers of flowers to create a cosy courtyard that can be enjoyed all year round. It is reached via a spiral staircase that leads to a small conservatory.

Owners of this deluxe penthouse also have a two-car garage, which is located in a separate block and has a remote controlled entrance door light and power.

Little Aston Hall is close to Little Aston Hospital, about one mile from Sutton Park and four miles from Sutton Coldfield town centre. Birmingham city centre is about nine miles away, while Lichfield city centre is about seven miles away.

The property is on the market for PS650,000. For more details call Quantrills on 0121 354 9229.
