The freehold for Boys Hall, a Jacobean Grade II listed manor house, situated in the parish of Willesborough on the outskirts Ashford, has been brought to the market for around £1.5m.
According to Andrew Moore, director at Christie and Co’s Maidstone office, the property has the potential to be “reinstated into a successful hotel, restaurant and wedding venue”, and would be “ideally suited for either a hands-on owner operator or a multiple operator looking to add a beautiful venue to their portfolio”.
Set within 2.75 acres and surrounded by mature gardens, the property dates back to 1616 and is believed to have been built by Thomas Boys, a member of the influential Boys family.
Some 10 bedrooms are situated across the first and second floors of the house, one of which features oak paneling with a domed ceiling and white marble chimneypiece with carved panels, believed to have been gifted from Windsor Castle.
Additionally, there are ancillary areas comprising three cloakrooms and a well equipped kitchen, plus an air conditioned conservatory featuring a swimming pool, which is currently covered with removable timber flooring.
Moore added: “Boys Hall provides a fabulous and unique opportunity to acquire a wonderful historical Jacobean property that has been under the same ownership for the past 16 years.
“Although currently closed, the property could easily be reinstated into a successful hotel, restaurant and wedding venue. It is ideally suited for either a hands-on owner operator or a multiple operator looking to add a beautiful venue to their portfolio.”
