Full description

The current owners have overseen a total restoration and refurbishment project of Woolland House by renowned family firm of builders and craftsmen, R Moulding & Co.

The house is approached via a winding drive, passing the stable block, towards a large parking area at the side of the house. To access the house, you pass under a lovely archway with the clock tower above and into a beautiful cobbled courtyard with an ornate Provencal limestone fountain (sourced from France by the owners).

On one side of the archway is the coach house, independently accessed, with a fully fitted kitchen, sitting room, bedroom and bathroom.

A new glazed atrium entrance provides a splendid sense of arrival to the main house, leading into the galleried reception hall, an incredible entertaining space rising from floor to rafters and the heart of the house. The kitchen leads off this room and at the other end of the kitchen is a sitting room. A utility room and domestic office are positioned at one end of the house.

The master bedroom suite consists of a bedroom with a spectacular view, a dressing room and a large bathroom with under-floor heating, luxurious French double washbasin, roll top bath and a walk-in shower. There are a further 6 double bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. One bedroom has direct access to the gardens and would make a superb home office or further reception room.

A detached two-storey house is currently divided into two apartments, each with a kitchen, sitting room, large bedroom and bath / shower room.

Woolland House was formerly the home of the celebrated artist Dame Elisabeth Frink. Still standing in the grounds are two studios, built for her, where she created some of her most famous works. The ‘blue studio’ retains remnants of Frink’s time working there, including her ‘notes and scribbling’ on the studio wall. A second larger display studio is currently used as a home office and is also ideal for parties and events
