Property description

Tenure: Freehold


Historic rural retreat with unique landscaped wild swimming pool

In brief

Set on a private leafy road surrounded by a mix of woodland and open fields, Antye House is Grade II listed. Completely renovated to an exquisitely high standard, the home’s original features of exposed timbers, leaded casement windows, latched wooden doors and inglenook fireplaces fuse impeccably with contemporary updates of luxury bathrooms and sleek kitchen. An idyllic natural pool for wild swimming is landscaped with stone surround and creates an air of peaceful tranquillity within the large grounds.

In more detail

Ground floor

A modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room is lined with handmade units and granite work tops with a matching island and breakfast bar. With plenty of space for table and chairs there’s also a comfortable seating area. Doors open from the kitchen straight out to the garden for great connection to the outdoors. There’s also a walk in larder plus a utility room sits adjacent to the kitchen and is similar in style.

With additions over the years the property now sprawls out over the ground floor to include four reception rooms. The garden room with its curved windows and French doors looks straight out to the rose garden full of traditional English scented roses while the comfortable lounge has a large inglenook fireplace. There’s also an atmospheric dining room with a wood burning stove in its large inglenook fireplace and brick paved flooring which continues from the large entranceway. Plus there’s a ground floor cloakroom and shower room on this floor too.

First floor

Three separate staircases rise up to the first floor and enable all five bedrooms to be accessed easily from whichever is nearest. Two of the double bedrooms are en-suite with another two sharing a Jack and Jill bath and shower room. Bedrooms are simply styled and imbued with the home’s character from historic features of exposed timbers and dark stained wood flooring.


Beautifully landscaped gardens include a large lawn which extends to the natural swimming pool. Surrounded by reed beds, wildflowers and mature trees this area styled in natural materials is a lure to relaxation. With an oak framed pagoda, raised decked walkways and natural stone seating areas this is a truly exceptional space.

A large outbuilding, a sizable potting shed and a store are also in the grounds along with a separate detached games room and brick built pizza oven.
There is also ample off road parking, a large driveway as well as a detached triple garage.
