£1.6 million in your back pocket? This 'remarkable' historic house in Rotherham could be yours

 

A COUNTRY mansion nestled in some of Rotherham’s most picturesque scenery - yours for £1.65 million.

Substantial stone built Hoober House - originally part of the Fitzwilliam Wentworth Estate - is being marketed by Savills.

The 14,500sq feet residence has been most recently used as offices and is now up for sale due to the firm relocating.

And the property - including a renovated period coach house - includes planning permission to turn it back into a home.

Marketing material from Savills said: “Hoober House enjoys an enviable location originally set within the Wentworth Estate and set within easy reach of the M1 motorway.

“The Fitzwilliam Wentworth Estate is located close by and around the property and Wentworth Woodhouse, which sits close by within the estate, is mentioned in Nikolaus Pevsner’s The Buildings of England as one of England’s greatest and most remarkable houses.

“The estate and the village offer outstanding architectural buildings and there are a number of follies and monuments in the surrounding area including Hoober Stand.”

The main building comprises two main floors plus a cellar, while the restored coach house is said to be ideal for leisure, office or residential use.

Savills said: “The layout of the main house would enable a substantial yet manageable country house to be recreated with a range of adjoining and very useful rooms set to the rear with independent access and ability to create a separate annexe if required.

“There is an impressive sweeping tree lined driveway approach to the main property with extensive parking, an adjoining paddock and a further driveway, the whole site offering a good degree of privacy.
“Each of the two substantial properties enjoys independent central heating and drainage to a modern private system.”
