The Buildings
Battenhall House is a stunning Grade II* Listed Italianate mansion which has been beautifully refurbished to accommodate some apartments and the extensive communal facilities, and the space is both impressive and welcoming.

Other existing buildings – the Stable Block, The Gatehouse and Gardener's Cottage – have been similarly carefully restored to provide delightful character homes, alongside three new-build villas housing further one and two bedroom apartments.

The very best materials have been used to create both communal areas and individual properties that are elegant, stylish, luxurious and comfortable.

All properties benefit from a 10-year home warranty provided by the NHBC or Checkmate (new-build and conversion properties respectively), the commencement dates of which vary and will be advised for specific properties on request.
