Full description

Hansard House is an exceptional property in respect of style, location and size, which prior to the current ownership, operated as a hotel and has been completely remodelled, improved and updated in recent years. The building is of traditional construction, rendered beneath a pitched slate roof, with high quality replacement upvc windows. The origins of the building are apparent from the proportions, with a magnificent reception hall, impressive 30’ drawing room, formal dining room and large family kitchen/breakfast room, all ideally suited to entertaining. There is also a comfortable sitting room, ground floor study, large utility and a downstairs WC. At first floor is a lovely galleried landing, a particularly large principal bedroom, with a beautifully fitted dressing room and an en-suite bath and shower room, stylishly and luxuriously appointed with high quality fittings. There are four further double guest bedrooms, all of which have high quality en-suites and there is further scope for accommodation on the second floor, with a staircase leading from the first floor landing. The interior design of the house is second to none, with carefully selected materials combining to create a modern home of immense contemporary beauty and in particular, the floor coverings are worthy of particular mention, with polished pale ceramic flag tiles through the reception hall which continues into the kitchen and beautiful American Walnut flooring in the sitting room, study and dining room and natural limestone flooring utilised in the bathrooms. The general fabric of the building is excellent, having been subject to complete renovation and meeting the current building regulation requirements and benefits from having been rewired, together with a new central heating system operated by two condensing boilers. Outside, directly to the front of the house is a large tarmac driveway which provides extensive parking, access to a large garage/workshop and lying to the south of the building, enjoying a sheltered south facing aspect is a beautifully designed terrace, which spans the entire rear elevation, attractively finished in natural stone paving and a traditional “Popple” stone wall.
