Description

Courtenay House was built in 2008 with considerable additional
investment by the then owner. To further enhance the quality
of the fittings and finish to a quite exceptional standard, the current owners have undertaken a comprehensive programme of upgrading and decoration; producing possibly one of the finest levels of presentation to be found locally. Courtenay House is a gracious property with a traditional style yet equipped for today's modern day living. A majority of the fittings and furniture are available within the sale having been supplied by both Harrods of London and Brights of Nettlebed.

Double front doors open from the pillared entrance porch to the magnificent part panelled staircase hall with pairs of double doors at each corner leading to all the principal ground floor rooms. To the left of the staircase hall, is the drawing room with ornate ceiling cornices and a magnificent Louis XV Fleur de Peche cheminee antique marble fireplace with black granite slips and hearth. There are French windows leading out to the terrace and garden with double doors to the adjoining dining room this again follows the octagonal theme, with doors to the terrace and garden.

The kitchen breakfast room is stunning designed by Simon Bray with bespoke oak, cluster oak, walnut and pearl white lacquer finish furniture under Kashmir white granite work surfaces and upstands.

From the staircase hall the custom built staircase with wrought
iron spindles and elegant curving handrails leads down to the lower ground level and up to the first floor.
