The Hermitage is a handsome Georgian house with earlier origins and a sympathetic 21st Century wing. The layout and the proportion of the rooms creates a degree of versatility in their use. The older part of the house offers elegant rooms with a wealth of period features: six panel doors, high ceilings and sash windows with working shutters. The most recent extension successfully blends traditional materials with contemporary styling, creating a comfortable wing of the house which can be integrated or separated from the main house as desired.
The stylishly traditional front door opens to an impressive dining hall with fireplace to one end and shuttered windows to two elevations. The elegant sitting room has a marble fireplace with alcoves to either side. A door opens to the garden room which provides a useful year-round reception or playroom, with southerly aspect. An inner hall passes the guest cloakroom and leads into the kitchen.
The kitchen is superb. It is fitted with bespoke range of furniture by Mark Wilkinson, with a huge
island and copious amounts of storage. The Aga stands to one end and bi-fold doors at the other
end, open to the terrace and beautifully landscaped gardens.
The side hall, with door from the drive, creates a subtle link between the original house and the new wing and leads to a useful walk-through homeworking station. The family room beyond, has windows to the garden and a polished, limestone floor.
The utility room is a great size for family life and offers ample space for appliances, as well as plenty of storage.
There are five bedrooms in all. Within the original part of the house there is a principal bedroom
with beautifully appointed en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms and a
large family bathroom.
Within the new wing there is a well-proportioned bedroom with a roll-top bath set next to a picture window, over-looking the neighbouring fields. Adjacent is the fifth bedroom and a stylish wet room / WC.
The Hermitage has a gravelled forecourt to the front with a parking area. A run of traditional outbuildings contains a secure store / workshop. Adjacent to this is a stable and an open cart shed,
serving as a car port, and there is a further brick garage / store beyond. Planning Permission has
been granted to enlarge the carport to a double garage and create a gym / home office.
The rear garden is delightful. There is a terrace beside the garden room and kitchen with a step up to the lawn. This has deep flower and shrub borders and a box maze to one side. A wisteria draped pergola is set over the morning terrace. A hand gate leads through the stone wall to the main lawn which is enclosed by maturing yew hedging.
The outdoor heated swimming pool sits within its own private gated area, surrounded by pleached hornbeam and mature yew hedging, with a patio and summer house to one end.
The garden is south and west facing and enjoys views over the gently rolling countryside that surrounds the village.
