FHP Living feel privileged to offer for sale such a rare visitor to the open market in what the writer believes to be, one of best houses in and around the city of Nottingham. Set high above the road on a bluff, the house and garden are completely private and are accessed by a private curved gated driveway, tucked from sight of the road. You would never know it was there! The driveway has spaces for 6 cars and has been used as a photo location for furniture and fabric brochures, even as a film set for a rap video!

Magdala Mount is an impressive grand Victorian house that was built in the late 19th century and was one of the first houses on Magdala Road, in the beautiful conservation area known as Mapperley Park. It has royal links in that Edward VIII, whilst Prince of Wales, was entertained by his mistress Freda Dudley Ward here. She was believed to be his mistress between 1918-1929. The royal household staff would move in and give the Magdala Mount house staff the weekend off. One of the stained-glass windows even features the Royal Crest, which you can only have if Royalty have stayed.

The grand reception hall measuring an impressive 54.0 x 16,0 is oak-lined and boasts a magnificent open fireplace and stained-glass windows with a variety of heraldry. Originally used as a grand dining hall, it is now a reception room perfect for parties. Indeed, a hundred people recently sat in here for a wedding with enough room for a central aisle.

The ornate plaster ceilings throughout the ground floor are of particular note. Intricate designs are individual to each room and are of a quality and skill of a bygone age.

The hand-built dining kitchen is from “Smallbone of Devizes” and features an island unit with granite work surfaces along with appliances, large bay window and decorative high-level ceiling.

The conservatory/orangery and glasshouse were built in 1908 by Foster and Pearson of Beeston who also built the glasshouses at Chatsworth. It features an original grotto built from porous lava rock which is teeming with plants to create a ‘living wall’. It has an automatic irrigation system for optimal maintenance.

The home office was custom built by Hammonds and features two workplaces and a range of filing and store cabinets. The two principal reception rooms both feature large bay windows allowing natural light to flow, high level decorative ceilings and beautiful period fireplaces. Furthermore, there is a study, cloakroom with small utility, Tv room semi open plan with a snug. To the rear side there is a second staircase with access to the cellars including wine cellar, which has capacity for around 1,500 bottles and the vendor informs us that it’s always at optimal temperature.

The grand staircase which ascends to the commodious landing provides access to the spacious master bedroom suite with large bay window allowing natural light to flow, access to a luxurious tiled bathroom with modern stylish suite, including free standing bath within the bay, separate shower, and walk-in dressing room with fitted wardrobes & central drawer unit. There are also five additional bedrooms, two with walk in wardrobes and en suite facilities with modern suites. In addition, there is a good size laundry/storage room and stylish family bathroom.

The ‘Lodge’ which stands adjacent to the main house, although more modest in terms of its accommodation, offers over 1500 Sqft spanning two floors and is a great benefit, creating living space ideally suited to the dependant relative, nanny, or independent lettable dwelling, featuring a spacious lounge dining room, kitchen fitted with a range of units and appliances, two double bedrooms with exposed beams, and modern family bathroom. (Internal Area Approx. 1550 Sqft)

The detached pool house which offers a further 1660 Sqft of space has been created in a contemporary style with by-folding doors opening onto an attractive deck, housing a fabulous swimming pool with an adjacent jacuzzi, shower, WC, changing room and even a kitchen complete with gas hob, sink and fridge for “al fresco” preparations, together with an outdoor barbeque area completing this entertainment space.

Security is optimised with a comprehensive alarm system linked to a 24hr monitoring service, seven recorded CCTV cameras, electric gates, wrought iron fencing, external lighting throughout the perimeter of the house and garden together with a safe.

Outside, the large established and well-tended landscaped gardens are a true delight and must be seen to be fully appreciated, offering an abundance of plants, shrubs, bushes, and herbaceous borders including a large expanse of lawn, patios, and a rear courtyard. Viewing essential.
