A fine reception hall runs the entire length of the house. The west wing includes a fine drawing room extending to nearly 28 ft with south and west-facing bay windows providing a good deal of natural light. A fireplace provides a lovely focal point to this delightful room. Beyond, situated at the front of the house, is the morning room, again with an attractive fireplace and views over the front grounds, the lake and the drive. The west wing includes a sitting room/study and a well proportioned dining room which adjoins a fantastic kitchen/breakfast room, 21.9 ft x 20.10 ft featuring a vaulted ceiling and fitted with a range of bespoke, Shaker-style units. Double doors open to a rear terrace which overlooks the swimming pool.

On the first floor there are six well proportioned bedrooms. The principal bedroom suite enjoys far-reaching views over the property’s grounds and paddocks and includes a large en suite shower room. Bedroom two, situated at the front of the house, also has an en suite shower room with the remaining bedrooms serviced by a well appointed family bathroom.

The Loft
This property sits adjacent to Chivers - a contemporary building with reverse-style living, designed to take advantage of the property’s unique position with elevated views over the gardens and grounds. The ground floor provides versatile space, currently used as a large laundry room, gym, bedroom and en suite bathroom. The first floor comprises principally one large open space with a fitted kitchen, living and dining room with high, vaulted ceiling and deep glazing with double doors opening on to a retained balcony. At the end of this room is the principal bedroom with en suite bath/shower room.

With access from the courtyard, and sitting adjacent to The Loft is a range of outbuildings including five stables, hay barn, tack room, machinery store, double and single garage and further storage areas.

The house has a wide lane frontage with electric gates serving a long drive to a substantial parking area in front of both properties. The grounds run north to south and the property is situated in the middle of the land. To the north the grounds include an attractive lake which is surrounded by sloping lawns with an adjoining manège. Towards the front of the house is an attractive display of topiary hedging and mature trees along the lane frontage. The tree line continues to the south protecting the grounds and affording a good deal of privacy, particularly in the summer months. Immediately behind the house is an outdoor swimming pool and more formal gardens. The far southern area is laid to grass and used as large open paddocks with frontage to School Road.
