Property description

Tenure: Freehold

High Chimneys is an historic Grade II listed country house of which the South Wing forms the major portion, North Wing being the only other portion. South Wing has the characteristics of
a Jacobean/Elizabethan property including high ceilings, exposed timbers, leaded light windows and working window shutters, with impressive fireplaces and solid oak floors. There is a magnificent solid oak staircase and wonderful brickwork making for very handsome wisteria-clad elevations.
There is a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room full of period features complete with 4-oven Aga, a snug/TV room and a substantial utility room at ground floor level. Up the staircase to the first floor are two formal principal reception rooms comprising the drawing room and formal dining room both with original fireplaces, and a study. On the second floor is the principal bedroom suite and a guest suite both with feature fireplaces and en suite bathrooms with free standing baths. There is also a separate family shower. On the third floor there are two additional double bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom and a further double room which could either be used as another sitting/TV room or bedroom 5.

A triple garage and useful outbuildings (with lapsed planning permission to convert to office/ancillary) with a vegetable garden close by. The front of the house has a magnificent flagstone terrace, and the principal lawned gardens lie to the rear of the property with a pleasant mixture of herbaceous borders and mature trees, providing several areas for al fresco entertaining including a Julian Christian garden building with
dining seating for 10. For cricketers there is the added benefit of an established cricket net within the grounds.
