Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This stunning Grade II Listed period gem was built in 1780. It occupies a wonderful position overlooking its own parkland and grounds as well as Semington Brook, which meanders through the grounds.

Originally owned by the eminent wool merchant family, Dugdale, the house remains architecturally stunning and is blessed with numerous period details and charm. The house was positioned to make the most of the views and more importantly the light. All of the principal rooms face south, overlooking the gardens and have large sash windows.

The property has a simple and usable layout which is great for both entertaining and more intimate family life in equal measure. The current owners have treasured the house and enhanced it throughout their ownership with sympathetic improvements internally and dramatic and well planned enhancements outside in the grounds.

The grand principal rooms have good ceiling height and well-proportioned rooms, as you would expect from such an important house. More recently the kitchen/breakfast room was created and opened up to provide the large family room that you see today. This opens out into the large patio, ideal for in/out, style living. The house also has a number of useful rooms, such as the pantry, utility room, cellar and study.

The upper two floors provide seven bedrooms, all with front facing views and they are complemented by five bathrooms. Of particular note is the opulent master suite with dressing room and modern en suite facilities.

The house enjoys a secluded spot and is located on a quiet single track lane.

The outside has seen the most change in recent years, under the watchful eye of the current owners who are keen gardeners. They have extensively planted the formal gardens with large and well stocked flower beds providing interest and year-round colour. There is an automated watering system as the gardens are set up for minimum maintenance. There are large lawned areas and mature trees on both the boundaries and alongside the brook as well as two footbridges onto the private island.

The current owners also transformed the parkland from a mass of brambles, working hard to create a charming and multifunctional arboretum style area. This has its own field access. The island is surrounded by Semington Brook and accessed via the pedestrian footbridges or by vehicular access. This is ideal grazing land, currently being used by the local farmer on a voluntary arrangement.

There are extensive outbuildings, all discreetly positioned away from the main house and hidden from the lane. Ample parking is available through the electric gates and onto the large driveway.
