Grade II* Listed and dating from the 17th Century with later 18th Century additions, Glendon Hall was divided into four separate dwellings in the 1970’s. The South Wing is the principal and most impressive of these dwellings and enjoys far reaching southerly views and beautiful private gardens.
Approached from the north, the front door opens onto a corridor with the kitchen to the left. This room has a log burner and snug area, the main kitchen with wooden farmhouse style units and culminates in a lovely raised breakfast area within the beautiful bay window which enjoys views of the garden. Beyond the kitchen is a fully fitted utility room and a door leading to the second entrance and a cloakroom and study. The area beyond the kitchen, with its own entrance, could serve well as an annexe with access to a bedroom and shower room above via a second staircase. To the south-west end of the house are the formal rooms with an Anteroom leading through to a dining room and then to an impressive drawing room which benefits from a bay window and amounts to nearly 674 sq ft. The cellar, which is accessed from beneath the main staircase, houses the boiler and has a number of chambers with its own external entrance to the south of the house.
The main staircase rises from the hall and leads to a landing area. To the south-west, and mirroring the drawing room which it is above, is the principal bedroom which is filled with light via the bay window. It has a separate en suite with a shower and bath as well as a separate WC. Adjacent to this is another generous double bedroom which shares a ’Jack and Jill’ bathroom with bedroom 2 which is beyond. Bedroom 2 also benefits from a walk-in wardrobe with a door which leads through to a craft room and then on to the rear stairs and the area which could serve as an annexe. On the second floor, there is a further large double bedroom and a music room.
To the south, the garden is tiered with the upper level having a gravel path, beyond which is a lawn area. This is flanked by ancient yew and privet hedges. Central stone steps lead down to a more formal lawn area with a central fountain, accessed by a gravel path with leads to a ha-ha with paddocks beyond. To the east is a victorian style greenhouse. A path leads to the front door which has parking spaces for up to 5 cars immediately adjacent. There is a further area within the kitchen garden belonging to the South Wing.
Glendon Hall is discreetly positioned behind high estate walls just to the north of Kettering. Transport links are exceptional with the A43, A14 and A6 all nearby and enabling access across the region. Nearby Kettering Station has a train service to London St Pancras, which takes from 49 minutes. There is a wealth of excellent schooling, within the region including Maidwell Hall, Spratton Hall and Bilton Grange.
From Market Harborough, take the A6 south until reaching the junction with the A14. Before reaching the A14 take a left turn along Harrington Road which leads to Rothwell. The Harrington Road turns into Fox Road and, when reaching a T junction with Kettering Road, turn left and follow signs into Rothwell town centre. At the town centre follow signs leading east to Glendon. After about 2 miles you will find a high stone wall to your right. Take the second entrance, which is signed The East Gate. Follow the drive around to the right towards the main house and you will see the entrance to the South wing directly ahead.
