Historic Site
Stanford Hall is a grade II* listed 18th-century English country house in Nottinghamshire, England, in Stanford on Soar just north of Loughborough.It is constructed in red brick with ashlar dressings, with a hipped slate roof topped with a painted balustrade. It is built in two storeys with a 7 bay frontage.HistoryThe manor of Stanford, complete with its stone manor house, was sold in 1661 by the Raynes family to a London alderman, Thomas Lewes . He was succeeded by his grandson Francis Lewis, who was an MP and High Sheriff of Nottinghamshire for 1713–14. The estate then passed to the fourth and last generation of Leweses, Charles Lewes, who died with no heir. After him it passed by marriage to the Dashwood family, of whom the first to occupy the property was Charles Vere Dashwood. He commissioned William Anderson of Loughborough to rebuild the house in brick between 1771 and 1774. It then descended in the Dashwood family to Charles Lewes Dashwood, who sold in 1887 by Richard Ratcliff, a brewer from Burton-on-Trent.Ratcliff employed the local architect W.H. Fletcher to make substantial changes to the house, which included building new 2 storey wings flanking the main block and a new service wing. It passed on his death in 1898 to his son, also Richard, By 1928 the owner was Richard Snr.'s granddaughter Kathleen, who had married Lawrence Kimball.Sir Julien CahnIn 1928 Sir Julien Cahn purchased the Hall from the Kimballs for £70,000.
