Tenure: Freehold

Standing in an elevated and peaceful position, this wonderful family house has incredible views, excellent proportions and enviable amenities including a tennis court, swimming pool and various outbuildings, all set in established gardens and grounds. In all about 8.8 acres. EPC rating F.

The house is not listed and occupies an imposing elevated position, comprising a handsome Edwardian country house built of brickwork elevations with decorative Tudor style rendering and timberwork set under a tiled roof.

Overall, Ashton House is a superb family home with a manageable and practical layout, offering flexibility to an incoming buyer.

The spacious reception hall forms the heart of the house with a bench seat providing a fine position to enjoy the far reaching views. The layout of the house is excellent with the drawing room, dining room and sitting room all located off this central hall and well suited to formal entertaining. The kitchen / breakfast room is ideally positioned near the playroom, dining room, larder, pantry and utility areas.

The long sweeping tree-lined drive leads up to a pretty crescent shaped gravel parking area to the north of the house. The most formal garden lies to the south of the house and is in the form of a quarry tiled sun terrace which flanks the southern elevation of the house providing panoramic views south. The central feature of the garden is a magnificent Oak tree which dominates the principal area of lawn.

The swimming pool area complements the house beautifully and offers a fantastic area in which to relax during the summer months. A very well kept tennis court sits towards the bottom of the garden with magnificent views over the surrounding countryside.
