Description

Hullavington House is a wonderful family home having been comprehensively refurbished and improved by the present owners. Indeed great flair and imagination has gone into the re-modelling of the property which is also now beautifully presented throughout. High quality fittings and fixtures blend naturally with the original charm of the property and help create a distinctive home of style and individuality. Equally the layout of the property makes it perfect for entertaining.

Internally the house is approached through an entrance portico with a glazed panelled front door leading into a wide reception hall with fireplace. There is also a side porch off which is the cloakroom. To one side of the main hall is the very comfortable dual aspect drawing room with an attractive open fireplace, bay window, fitted bookshelves and parquet floors. On the other side of the hall is the kitchen/breakfast room which also looks out over the gardens and grounds. The room doubles as an excellent family room and incorporates many appliances as well as a central island and breakfast area, impressive stone fireplace and sash windows. Approached through the 'wine cellar' is the dining room with ceiling beams, flagstone floor and mirrored cupboards. A concealed door leads into the boot room. Off the inner hall there is a pantry and the sitting room with inglenook fireplace and exposed stonework. There is also a large utility room, a second cloakroom, boiler room and a boot room which opens into the garden.

An elegant staircase leads up to the first floor. Here there is the dual aspect principal bedroom with dressing room and a beautifully fitted bathroom.
