Ansteys is an exceptional property of fine proportions, completed in 2011 by Belvedere, with a further redesign which has created a home with striking detailing, dramatic spaces and clean lines. Set within wonderful secluded gardens leading onto the 300 acre Bulstrode Park to the rear, Ansteys boasts luxurious and stylish accommodation of just under 11,000 square feet, arranged over four floors, all accessible via the internal lift.
Ansteys is imposing and grand, elevated on wide stone steps with an impressive pillared portico. The interior is equally magnificent, with wonderful ceiling heights, bright rooms and a feeling of space.
There is much of note:
The ground floor opens to the reception hall with its striking ebony flooring and stunning curved dark wood and glass staircase rising to the galleried landing with gently curved walls. The reception rooms are of wonderful proportions and lead off the central hallway.
Situated near the main entrance, the study is of good size and ideal for business callers and home working. Ansteys is perfect for both formal entertaining and relaxed family life - the principal reception rooms flow from the sun terrace through the drawing room to the family room via integral sliding doors.
The kitchen, dining room and drawing room all enjoy access to the terrace and gardens beyond through bi-fold doors. The kitchen is beautifully fitted with a comprehensive range of hand crafted painted units topped with granite surfaces. There are a wealth of quality appliances including a Wolf range with gas burners and griddle with ovens beneath and integral wine cooler, frid ge and freezer. An adjacent second kitchen is equally well-fitted and perfect for food preparation and catering with a range of further ovens, an additional integral fridge / freezer and a useful walk-in pantry.
The first floor offers three well-appointed double bedrooms accessed off the galleried landing. The master suite is particularly impressive, with its own corner balcony and dual luxuriously-fitted bathrooms situated off the well-fitted dressing room. The guest suite is similarly well-proportioned and also enjoys its own private balcony, superb en suite facilities and a walk-in dressing area. The remaining bedroom also has an ensuite shower room.
The second floor provides further flexible living space arranged around a central landing with a roof lantern providing natural light. This floor is currently configured as four double bedrooms (one with ensuite shower room) and a family bathroom but could provide separate teenage accommodation with a study/games room.
The lower ground floor boasts a wonderful cinema room with private cloakroom facilities, a temperature-controlled wine store and a well-fitted laundry room. There is also a self-contained one bedroom annexe comprising a sitting/dining room with kitchenette and a single bedroom with en suite shower room. There is a superb spa complex with mosaic pillars lining the heated swimming pool, an open plan gym area, a glass-fronted sauna and a walk-in wet room with changing area and cloakroom facilities.

Gardens and Grounds
The gardens at Ansteys have been carefully designed and planned to ensure all year-round interest in a secluded setting.
The rear garden features a well-tended lawn with shrub borders and rhododendron and laurel bushes and mature trees to the borders. As the lawn gently slopes towards Bulstrode Park at the rear, the area becomes woodland with a carpet of seasonal bluebells and daffodils.
The kitchen/breakfast room, dining room and drawing room all open to the wonderful split level paved terrace which spans the rear of the house and is perfect for al fresco dining and entertaining. Enclosed to the sides by a dwarf retaining wall with box hedging, there are central steps down to the lawn.
Ansteys is approached via electric gates opening onto a block-paved sloping driveway which leads to the parking area and forks to enter the lower ground floor garaging. The driveway is flanked to the side by well stocked borders and screened by mature hedging and trees.
