Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This elegant period residence with its origins in the 1700s is surrounded landscaped grounds, a paddock and stunning woodlands. From the moment you walk under the Palladian style front entrance and through the gorgeous oak panelled front door you feel you are in for a real treat. Even the recently renovated reception hall is a work of art with its Pugin style floor tiling, hand painted Chinese silk wallpaper and top quality oak doors, skirtings and architraves throughout the property.

The reception hall is open plan to a seating area that flows through to the truly magnificent kitchen/breakfast room. Also in the kitchen is an ingenious remote controlled lift up entrance to the very useful cellar. There is a large utility room, shower room and a study/gym/bedroom as well as a cloakroom and a large office. The atmosphere changes as you walk into the formal dining room with its wall and ceiling beams and the magnificent drawing room with its Jacobean style pattered ceiling, vast inglenook, half height oak wall panelling and charming bay window. The large sitting room/music room is equally charming with its inglenook fireplace and bay window.

The first floor corridor with its wall and ceiling beams leads to a family bathroom and six double bedrooms including two en-suites. At the end of the corridor there is the awe inspiring master suite with its vaulted ceiling, cross beams, beautiful built in oak wardrobes and french doors to a balcony and a superb en-suite bathroom.

The elevated rear garden includes attractive flower and shrub beds with steps up to a lawn and a Palladian style pavilion and further steps to another lawn with views across an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The large front garden includes the wraparound terrace and flowing lawns interspersed with specimen trees. Solar panels are available to heat the large swimming pool complex that includes changing rooms with a shower and toilet. There is also a summerhouse, two garden sheds, a garage and gravel driveway, the paddock, two stables and the magnificent woodlands.

What the Owner says:

"We moved here about eight years ago because we loved the position and the stunning landscape. The house was charming but needed considerable updating and we have thoroughly enjoyed having the opportunity to renovate the property and are very proud of the results".
