Tenure: Freehold

An outstanding Arts and Crafts country house dating back to the 1920s offering fabulous family accommodation as well as delightful secondary accommodation, set in beautifully landscaped grounds amounting to 3.85 acres bordering Worplesdon Golf Course and equestrian fields.

A family home of exceptional quality - with a great commute. Beesacres offers an excellent layout for families with elegant beautifully presented interiors. This combined with an exceptional rural setting and the added benefit of convenience for numerous amenities, including schools, golf and country pursuits amounts to an ideal fusion.

Located on Worplesdon's Berry Lane, the property has wonderful borders on all sides with neighbours including the Worplesdon Golf Course across a private field to the North, equestrian fields and an estate to the East and South, and a 4.5acre property to the South and West.

Automated double opening oak gates open off of Berry Lane onto a spacious courtyard, in front of the house, cottage and outbuildings. The separate cottage offers flexible and adaptable secondary accommodation in addition to an office, extensive garaging and the gym all with garden views set around the courtyard. The heated pool enjoys a particularly splendid tucked away setting whilst the pool house offers changing and shower facilities in addition to a full kitchen.

The main house has a charming and functional floor plan, comprising a ground floor reception hall, spacious drawing room with feature fireplace, library, dining room and the bespoke 'Mark Wilkinson' fitted family kitchen leading to a wonderful family room with vaulted ceiling. On this level is also a useful pantry, laundry, study, cloakroom and boot room.

The first floor offers 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms including a spacious master bedroom suite with dressing room and en suite bathroom, with two staircases providing access to this level. The second floor includes an additional bedroom, a further bathroom and a large room suitable for a playroom, media room, billiards, or additional guest or staff accommodation. The property benefits from a central cat 5 wiring system which synchronises the 'Lutron' multi scene & 5v lighting circuits with the audio/visual connections throughout the house.

Outside, the guest cottage has a bedroom, sitting room and bathroom on the ground floor, and a large reception room / office with convenience kitchen on the first floor. The pool house is very attractive and includes a kitchen, heated changing room, shower room and wc. The gym has vaulted ceilings and has very pretty views across the west lawn and on to the adjoining field. There is stable styled garaging for three cars and a traditional two car garage with a work area, loo and substantial storage in the attic.

The mature grounds offer rare complete seclusion and privacy including expansive lawns, seasonal gardens and tree lined woodland walkways, with rhododendrons, tall and rough plantings. The primary gardens and lawns, designed by Anthony Paul, evolve and bloom throughout the year, offering delightful views and vistas from every room. A gazebo and tree-lined paths to a secret garden are also extremely well-located on the property. A further field of approximately 7.7 acres, interspersed with occasional trees and heather and bordering the 9th fairway of Worplesdon Golf Club, is available by separate negotiation.
