Description

Dating back to 1866 when it was built for the Corbet Family of Adderley Hall, Cobscot Hay is an impressive, beautifully presented, former rectory which has been empathetically modernised by the current owners to provide accommodation which is practical for modern day living and entertaining. Standing in a magnificent elevated position on the edge of the village of Adderley, it enjoys far reaching views over the surrounding countryside. The elegant and well proportioned rooms feature a wealth of original features including sash windows, shutters, picture rails and ceiling cornices, original service bells, along with period styled Chesney fireplaces.


The accommodation is set over four floors and is entered through an impressive Victorian Gothic door into the reception hall with a limestone fireplace to one side. The four main reception rooms offer both formal and informal space and radiate off: the graceful double aspect drawing room has a marble fireplace with large floor to ceiling bay windows with French doors which frame the beautiful surrounding views. The dining room has a limestone fireplace and three windows which also overlook the gardens and countryside, whilst the study and sitting room both provide a more informal reception space.


The bespoke kitchen was fitted by Clive Christian and is the heart of the home. A five oven dual control AGA and Miele integrated appliances are incorporated within a superb range of cupboards which are topped with granite worktops. A light oak, island unit/breakfast bar offers additional storage and a travertine tiled floor provides underfloor heating. A seating area has views over the gardens through French doors. Leading off the kitchen is access to the rear stairs, cellars and a useful laundry room which feature two Miele washing machines and dryers. The pantry/coldroom, playroom and gym are also accessed from the kitchen. There are also two cloakrooms on this floor.


The master bedroom suite is found on the first floor and benefits from beautiful bay windows and a marble fireplace. A dressing room leads into a well appointed bathroom with twin hand basins, a Duravit corner air bath and separate Pharo shower arc. There are three further bedrooms on this floor: one with its own ensuite shower room, a large family bathroom and a separate wet room with shower. The second floor has four further bedrooms: one with its own dressing room and ensuite shower room and the other three sharing a bathroom. The accommodation is completed with the cellars which have been converted into a games room, office and wine cellars.


Outside, Cobscot Hey is approached over a gravel drive leading to a large parking and turning area. The gardens have been landscaped and include a variety of mature trees and shrubs including rhododendron and azaleas. There is a terrace for outside entertaining and dining and a walled courtyard. The current owners installed eight vegetable beds which are protected by Beech hedging.
