Subject to confirmation from a lawyer, the property is likely to qualify for "mixed use" for Stamp Duty, rather than the higher residential rate, as it was when bought by the current owners. The vendor may help with the SDLT, subject to negotiation.

Having undergone an extensive refurbishment and improvement by the current owners, Lime Kiln House is a superb new family home in immaculate order. The commanding position offers breath taking views over the surrounding countryside from many of the rooms.

The vast reception hall with galleried staircase leads to the formal reception rooms. The drawing room is of particular note, with hand crafted panelling, a suspended ceiling and a library area.

The striking kitchen/breakfast/family room contains a bespoke fitted kitchen featuring work surfaces constructed from local marble. Also on this side of the house is the large cinema room, with doors leading to an area of decking, ideal for outdoor entertaining.

The attention to detail is noticeable throughout, and continues to the first floor where there is an excellent balance of bedrooms to bathrooms.

The indoor leisure complex features a swimming pool with ample seating space around and a wonderful mural, along with a sauna, changing room and WC.

There is a new triple-bay garage with stairs to a large open plan room. Planning consent has been granted for a new two bedroom lodge house near the entrance gates.

A paddock lies to the north with road access.
