Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A magnificent 1930’s country mansion with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside tucked away in this highly sought after village.



Description

Approached through a set of wrought iron entrance gates a sweeping gravel driveway leads up, past the stable block, to a wide turning area directly in front of the main house that provides ample parking for several cars.

Woolpits was, we understand, originally constructed in the 1930’s and is of red brick construction under a series of pitched tiled roofs. Upon purchasing the property the current owners embarked upon a comprehensive refurbishment/modernisation programme with much care and attention being paid to not only updating the services but replacing the windows and restoring the overall general fabric and character of the overall building. However, further huge potential remains for incoming purchasers to put their own stamp on the house in the form of the integral staff annexe and extensive loft area.

Ground Floor:
The internal reception hall, entered through the solid wood front door, immediately conveys the house’s style and overall feel by way of its generous proportions, high ceilings and views out over the landscaped gardens and surrounding countryside beyond. All the main reception rooms lead off from the reception hall and continue the theme of space and light combined with character features that include stone fire places, original servants bells and floorings. At the western end of the house can be found the kitchen, utility, dog room and secondary stair case that leads up to the staff annexe.

Additionally there are extensive cellars that could be used for a multitude of purposes one of which could be as an excellent wine store.

First Floor:
Wooden stairs rise from the hall and lead up to a wide open landing, that is part galleried, and six main bedrooms with two family bathrooms and a separate W.C. At the western end of the landing a door leads through to the staff annexe that is currently set out to offer three bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and separate W.C. There are also two attic rooms above which could provide potential for further bedrooms/bathrooms if so desired (subject to gaining all the necessary consents) but which are currently used for storage.

Gardens & Grounds:
The gardens and grounds compliment the house extremely well, surrounding it on all sides and offering a mix of formal landscaped areas, rolling expanses of lawn and paddocks.

Along the rear of the house runs an expansive stone terrace with two covered areas and doors back into the main body of the house. It is the perfect spot from which to enjoy the long summer evenings, whether it be formal entertaining or simply relaxing, whilst admiring the wonderful views beyond. From the terrace a central set of steps leads down through the landscaped section of the garden, which has been laid out to a symmetrical pattern and boasts a great variety of flowering plants and shrubs. To the east of the house on an expanse of flat lawn is a children’s play area that overlooks not only the main gardens beyond but also the paddocks.

The Stable block:
At the start of the drive sits the old stable block which
has been comprehensively renovated and repaired
by the current owner that could lend itself ideally to
the provision of ancillary accommodation, subject to
gaining all the necessary planning consents. Presently it
consists of four stables, an internal tack room and hay loft
above.
