Full description

The original property has been sympathetically developed and increased in size with the current owners having invested a substantial amount of not only money but time and thought into creating one of the finest homes in the locality. Externally the mix of mellow brickwork under hand crafted roof tiles, stonework to the entrances and the use of the timber for the doors and windows blends superbly to create a fully mature country home. This high quality look sets the tone that continues upon entering the house.

The grounds are beautifully landscaped and provide a private and secure setting. Professionally designed with lawn, stone patio areas, tennis court and swimming pool, independent pool house with changing facilities and a very pleasant sitting area. The needs of the majority of residents at this level are well catered for in this exquisite setting. The garden benefits from a range of mature specimen shrubs and trees with hedges to the perimeter creating an attractive aspect from every position within the grounds or indeed from the house itself. Internally the supremely high level of presentation continues throughout the house. The impressive reception hallway with its hand crafted timber panelling sets the tone of this family orientated residence incorporating a very traditional feel with modern home technology and leisure facilities. Superbly proportioned rooms together with more intimate spaces make Chantry Dane a very well balanced family home with a traditional country house feel.
