Description

GUIDE PRICE £1,300,000 - £1,400,000
A character five bedroom 15th century beautiful Grade II detached 2,588 sq ft property, set on a generous plot of approximately 2.2 acres. The property has lots to offer including a separate versatile annexe building that could be a home office, a gym, a range of equestrian facilities including stables, paddocks and manege. The stunning formal gardens to both front and rear boasts many features including a swim spa, hot tub, outdoor kitchen BBQ area and a fire-pit house with seating and powered blinds that make for a superb environment for alfresco entertaining. The whole property has been enhanced and remodelled and the main house has been sympathetically renovated by the current owners to blend period charm with modern comforts. Dating back to c1450 the property is screened from the quiet lane and hidden away in its own private plot on the edge of the well-served village of West Kingsdown. The property is now looking for a new custodian that will enjoy all its elements and is sure to suit an array of buyers, including equestrian, home workers, families looking for multi-generational living or enjoy having guests to stay. The home is ideal for looking for an ‘escape to the country’ and a 'get away from it all' experience and yet is still conveniently located for road and rail links into central London. This charming period home must be viewed to fully appreciate the character and the overall package it offers.

Seller Insight

With origins in the 15th century, this beautiful Grade II listed family home, which boasts 2.2 acres of stunning gardens and grounds, sits tucked away on a quiet lane on the edge of the well-served village of West Kingsdown. It was the land that surrounds the house, and the fact that it gave us the ability to keep our horses at home that initially sparked our interest in the property,” say the owners. “Then, when we came to view it, the minute we set eyes on the house itself we were totally sold. It dates back to c1450 so it’s hugely characterful, but when we bought it eighteen years ago it had been empty for around six years so it was very rundown and crying out for some TLC.

We feel we are simply custodians of the house, and as such, in everything we’ve done to it we’ve treated it with the utmost respect. In a lot of ways, we’ve sympathetically (truncated)

Seller Insight

We’ve relished the fact that when we shut the gate we quite literally feel as if we’re miles from anywhere, and when the sun is shining it’s like being on holiday! We’ve added a range of equestrian facilities, but we’ve also created lots of lovely areas for relaxing, for the grandchildren to play in and also space for alfresco entertaining. One of our favourite areas is the huge decked terrace overlooking the manege. We’ve installed a three and a half meter BBQ area, essentially an outdoor kitchen; there’s a swim spa, a hot tub and also a fire-pit house with seating and blinds that can come down to create a really cosy atmosphere. The property as a whole is amazing, and the location is a place where we’ve been able to enjoy all the benefits of countryside living, with all the convenience of having an array of well-served towns and villages within easy reach, as well as excellent transport links. It’s been ideal for commuting into London, but at the end of a hard day it’s (truncated)
