Stanwick Hall to get a makeover on TV

When the beautiful Grade-II* listed, Queen Anne-era Stanwick Hall came up for sale in 2006, many would have been surprised at the relatively  low asking price of £1.1m.

Though the house came with seven bedroom and 11-acres in the Northamptonshire countryside, it also came with an ‘At Risk’ rating from English Heritage due to the structural problems.

Despite this it did sell and now Endemol have expressed an interest to the architect in charge of the restoration, Anthony Rickett, who has agreed to let them follow the work.  It’s always pleasing to hear of houses being restored and it’s even better when the work is brought to the attention of the wider public so they can also appreciate the hard work that is done to maintain these vital pieces of our heritage.

    Grandparents,parents,aunts,uncles,cousins other family members have lived High St and Higham Road all their lives. My sister and I lived 50yds (with parents) along High St from this magnificent house until we married. My aunt was interviewed for the prog as she lives (has done all her life)at the end of the lane. I played in the grounds, had tea in the house, played in surrounding fields as a child 45years ago. It will be a great pleasure to see this programme

    We agreed to buy the property in 1978 for £45K with 2.78 acres (asking price £48.5K) or £61K with extra land. It was at risk then following a fire. The Trustees for the vendor pulled out stating that they would restore the property & put it on the market in 1979. Sadly, the property still suffers after another 33 years.
