Full description

A MAGNIFICENT MANORIAL-STYLE HOME OF IMMENSE CHARACTER AND PRESTIGE lying in the older part of Great Coates Village in a lovely secluded position.

It stands in extensive grounds with swimming pool and tennis court.

In addition to the main house with its three fine reception rooms and five bedrooms (two with en-suites), there is a separate two-storey cottage with living accommodation and two bedrooms.

Great Coates House is a truly fine home, originally built as a main residence for the Sutton Estate.
Altered and considerably extended over the years, it has only recently undergone a scheme of extensive yet thoughtful refurbishment. We understand that the many improvements since 2009 include rewiring the house, installing a new kitchen and upgrading the bathrooms, the installation of a new central heating system to the cottage and enhancing the main central heating system by fitting stylish column radiators.
As a result, of these extensive improvements, whilst well equipped and attractively modernised, it still retains many of its splendid original features and is, without doubt, a most impressive home of immense style and character.
There is far too much to describe, and internal inspection is absolutely essential in order to fully appreciate what this wonderful home has to offer.
It has three extremely spacious reception rooms, and special mention must be made of the recently updated breakfast-kitchen, which has, in the last few years been fully refitted.
On the first floor there are five well-proportioned bedrooms, two having luxury en-suite facilities.
Standing in extensive, mature gardens, complete with swimming pool, tennis court and other outbuildings, it is, without doubt, truly unique and offers a rare opportunity to acquire a property of exceptional quality and substance.
