Description

St. Vincents is an imposing Grade II listed Georgian country residence with superbly proportioned accommodation set within its own small estate of just over 20 acres. This classic house dates from 1775. Its period features include decorative cornices, sash windows some with working shutters, and elegant fireplaces. The property stands within its mature gardens, which
provide a high degree of privacy and seclusion. Within the grounds are a separate Victorian Coach House and a detached four bedroom Cottage which has provided a rental income for a
number of years but could also provide additional guest or staff accommodation as required. The grounds contain formal mature gardens, an extensive kitchen garden, woodland (including a
bluebell wood), a stream and three paddocks.

• A double front door with an elegant fan light window opens onto the entrance hall with stairs rising to the galleried first floor landing.
• The principal reception rooms are classically elegant and well-proportioned with stunning views over the grounds. Both have attractive fireplaces with the drawing room having a Jetmaster fire and the dining room a duck nest grate.
