The property retains many historical features such as oak panelling, stone mullioned windows and an over mantel in the formal dining room that has detailed carvings, one of which is believed to depict King Charles I.
The heart of the home is the impressive breakfast kitchen that is filled with natural light through the glazed apex ceiling and has the unique feature of a well, which has been cleverly utilised as a kitchen island with a glass and granite surface. There is also a generous drawing room with a gritstone fireplace, a large sitting room with a dining area, downstairs shower room and a fabulous formal dining room.

The grounds of Holmesfield Hall provide wonderful surroundings to the home and consist of a manicured, formal front garden, wrap-around gardens to the rear and an extensive seating terrace. The property is also ideal for equestrian usage due to approximately 13 acres of the plot being grazing land, which can be accessed from the house and Hob Lane.
This magnificent residence offers additional accommodation within Holmesfield Hall Cottage and is ideal for relative or dependent persons. The cottage has been recently renovated and has its own garden and parking area.
