A STUNNING country manor built on a land that once belonged to Henry VIII has gone on sale for £995,000.
The four-bedroom detached house is located in Birmingham and has six acres of grounds.
The property was built in the 17th century and is set in the grounds of the original Groveley Hall – which dates back to the 13th century.
The estate was acquired by Henry VIII from the College of Westbury, Bristol, around 1536.
Back then, it had likely been used as a religious institution by the college.
But once it was taken over by the King as part of The Reformation, it was given to his secretary of state Sir Ralph Sadler.
Steeped in history, the manor has retained much of its original charm.
It features high beams, quarry-tiled floors, a grand inglenook fireplace and strip-panel latch doors.
On the ground floor, there are a large sitting room, a formal dining room and a grand drawing room with a charming inglenook fireplace and period beams – perfect for entertaining guests.
The large kitchen and breakfast room has a farmhouse feel, including a breakfast bar and French doors to its rear which overlook the extensive gardens.
In the house, you can also find a utility room and stairs leading to a bathroom and dressing room, as well as the third bedroom.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms with a large family bathroom.
The master quarters benefit from stunning views of the grounds and a superior dressing room.
There are also a number of outbuildings as well as a garage.
The property is close to several motorway links and the villages of Hopwood, Alvechurch and Barnt Green can be found nearby.
Groveley Hall is currently on the market with Purple Bricks for £995,000.
