28 April 2014, Morville Hall, one of only a handful of Grade I listed residential properties in Shropshire – is now available to rent through national property consultancy Carter Jonas.
The seven-bedroom property near Bridgnorth is owned by the National Trust and is available to rent for an annual cost of £24,000. There is also a further three-bedroom flat available adjoining the main Hall with an asking rent of £7,800 per annum.
Once part of a Saxon settlement, Morville Hall’s architectural history can be traced through Elizabethan and Tudor periods – it is a property which has been modified through the centuries.
The accommodation is spacious and well laid out, with seven bedrooms, several reception rooms, and a loggia which looks out onto the unspoilt Shropshire countryside.
There is a wealth of original Elizabethan and Georgian features throughout the property which sits in a beautiful and tranquil part of Shropshire.
The landscaped gardens are exceptional, and include a curved lawn, ha-ha, natural bathing pool, fruit trees, lavender garden and wonderful rotating summer house.”
Victoria Pocock, who is handling the letting, said: “This really is an extremely rare opportunity to live in one of Shropshire’s most interesting and, in my opinion, desirable properties.
Departing tenant Dr Chris Douglas said it has been “a privilege” living at Morville Hall.
He added: “It is a fascinating mix – a Grade I manor house in a beautiful location with fine architecture and elegant pavilions, set in attractive and varied formal gardens next to the medieval church of St Gregory the Great. It is also the centre of a wonderful village community.”
