Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This Grade II Listed residence built in 1885 is surrounded by a high wall that continues round the corner to a cul-de-sac lane where you will find the hydraulic entrance gates. The perimeter wall provides privacy and security that is further enhanced as you sweep through the gates into more than three acres of grounds. The gravel drive curves round to the front of the house that is everything you imagine a classical Georgian property to be with its central front door, tall chimney stacks, a myriad of multipane sash windows and a wall covered in Virginia creeper.

The spacious reception hall provides a welcome feel with its fireplace, ornate coving and ceiling rose similar to that which you will find in the nearby drawing room with its marble fireplace. There are steps to the inner lobby and to the kitchen/diner with its original flint wall, four oven gas Aga, seating/study area and space for a table and chairs as well as access to the very large utility room, built in safe and wine store and the formal dining room. There are also doors to a wonderful sitting room converted from the original barn. It has brick walls, Rhodesian teak flooring, a brick fireplace with a wood burning stove and bespoke mahogany french doors leading to the courtyard and the all weather entertainment area with its barbecue, seating area, hot tub and sauna.

Upstairs there is the main bedroom with its en-suite bathroom and a walk in wardrobe, four double bedrooms with vanity units and wardrobes plus two family bathrooms, a cloakroom and a linen room. Outside there is a large workshop and a tandem garage as well as a vaulted and beamed barn. This would be ideal for conversion into a separate annex subject to the necessary planning permissions. The large lawns are interspersed with mature shrubs and specimen trees as well as seating areas, a gravel patio with a hidden well and a fire pit while the acre of woodland backs onto fields.

What the Owner says:

"We moved here in 1991 as we wanted somewhere that would be a lovely family home and a place that was very private and secure. It will be very sad to leave our wonderful home that is full of happy memories but we feel that it is now time to downsize".
