Hall could be all yours ... for a cool £2.1million

Harehope Hall
Harehope Hall

With its 13 bedrooms, elegant Victorian architecture and acres of grounds, it’s every inch the des-res – and there’s even a cottage thrown in.

But such opulence comes at a cost and any potential buyers of Harehope Hall, near Eglingham, better have deep pockets.

The stately home, built in 1848 as a sporting lodge for the Baker-Cresswell family, has gone on the open market for a cool £2.1million, through Wooler-based estate agent Sale and Partners.

Now owned by the Wrangham family, the house comes with an estate covering 53 acres of woodland, three acres of paddock and 26 acres of farmland.

Harehope Hall itself features a library and drawing room, a sitting room, kitchen and spectacular dining room, as well as seven bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The adjoining Cresswell Wing, which has private access as well as access from the main house, contains a further four bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a living room and large breakfasting kitchen.

It was used as a holiday let and is currently business-rated with a value of £2,600.

The gardens are extensive and include a sun terrace and outdoor heated swimming pool.

The cottage, Harehope West Lodge, has two bedrooms and also comes with an extensive stone stable block providing nine loose boxes and garaging.

Ewan Harris, from Sale and Partners, said: “It’s not often that a property of this standard comes on the market.”

Harehope Hall’s owners, John and Ali Wrangham, said they had decided to put their home up for sale after their children had flown the nest.

Ali said: “It has been a hard decision to take, but we had to be realistic. It was just too big for the two of us now our family has grown up, so we thought we would down-size.

“We are only moving five miles along the road, to one of our farm houses on the estate.”
