This charming property has been lovingly renovated over the last 5 years and has a new roof and electrics. Every bathroom (14 in total) has been modernised (with many added) whilst retaining the original style. The 12 bedrooms are large and well appointed and the numerous reception rooms offer ample space for entertaining or relaxing. Solid oak parquet floors, marble fireplaces and ornate carvings are in abundance.
The 24 hectares of grounds are divided between formal gardens, paddocks (currently home to the owner's horses), woodland, pond, entrance drives (there are 4 separate entrance gates). There is a large kitchen garden maintained by the gardener which provides plenty of fresh produce. The tennis court and heated infinity pool offer views over the park.
There is a separate guardian's house, gate keeper's cottage, chapel, converted pigeonnaire and extensive outbuilding (a mixture of former servants quarters, garages, stables, etc. etc.) which could be easily transformed into conference rooms or additional accommodation if needed.
