Description

This magnificent mid 18th century building has all the symmetrical splendour of the Georgian era. With its grand entrance and elegant reception rooms including; a fabulous ballroom, high ceilings and tall sash windows, this is a wonderful family home.

Upon entering through the central Doric stone portico, there is a spacious and elegant hallway. To the right, the dining room boasts moulded cornice and a mid 19th century marble fireplace flanked by fitted mahogany half glazed bookcases with cupboards below. To the left, the kitchen has a good range of fitted wall and base units. Both rooms have Venetian windows and fielded panel doors.

Passing through the hallway, on the right hand side is access to the cellar as well as WC and utility room opening on to the garden. The cellar has a brick vaulted ceiling and stone wine bins, access is via a stone staircase.

To the rear of the property, the impressive drawing room and sitting room overlook the garden, both having fielded panel doors, moulded cornices and ceiling bosses. The drawing room has two large sash windows with shutters and a classical painted timber fireplace surround with marble inset.

The sitting room has French windows opening on to a paved area. To the left, the hallway leads to the grand staircase, having four flights with ornamental stringing, turned newel posts and a hardwood handrail. The first floor enjoys a light and open landing below a covered oval skylight under a glazed cupola.

On entering the elegant ballroom, with its moulded cornice and splendid oval ceiling panel in the Adamesque style, your gaze is drawn towards the two floor to ceiling high shuttered windows with views across the garden. The hardwood floor and period fireplace compliment this magnificent room.
