**Guide Price £1,350,000 - £1,500,000** A beautifully situated Grade II Listed period country house, sympathetically refurbished in recent years to an exceptionally high standard, approached down a long tree-lined drive and enjoying far reaching views across open countryside. Established gardens and grounds of about 5.5 acres.

Roughters House is a fine example of a fine Grade II Listed period country house, immaculately presented, and typical of the area with brick elevations, half tile hung, beneath a tiled roof.
A programme of sympathetic refurbishment has been undertaken over the last few years by the present owner and includes the creation of a wonderful kitchen/breakfast room,
luxuriously appointed bathrooms, a new oil fired central heating system with MegaFlow hot water tank, a new roof, several new window frames and internal oak doors, and a light oak staircase. The property has also been completely redecorated throughout.

The main features include:
Panelled enclosed entrance porch and door to reception hall/sitting room with flagstone floor and wide inglenook fireplace with wood burner.
• There are four further reception rooms, two with open fireplaces, and one with door to the southwest-facing paved terrace and garden.
• There is a large inner hall with separate access from the drive, and shower room, thus making part of the ground floor accommodation convertible into a separate annexe if required.
• Stunning kitchen/breakfast room which has been
expensively fitted and equipped and has an oak floor and vaulted ceiling, access to the boiler room and door to large utility room.
• The two principal bedrooms on the first floor both have dressing areas and en suite bath/shower rooms. There is also a third bedroom and an excellent family bathroom with sauna.
• The second floor is approached by two staircases and comprises a large landing and two further bedrooms.

Roughters House is approached down a long tree lined drive flanked by lawn and established trees, part of which also serves a neighbouring property, and then continues to a good sized parking area adjacent to the house. Brick and tile double garage 22’8 x 18’10 with electrically operated up and over door, further door to the inner lobby with stairs leading to the first floor room/gymnasium 28’ x 13’.
Integral machinery store 18’10 x 7’. Traditional brick outbuilding (formerly housing the oil storage tank). Further brick, tile and weather-boarded outbuilding providing workshop/garden store.
The gardens and grounds form a really delightful feature with sweeping lawns and many mature trees and shrubs. There is an extensive paved west-facing terrace adjacent to the house,
ideal for summer entertaining. Adjacent sun terrace overlooking a delightful pond/water feature In addition there is a hedgeenclosed
heated swimming pool (now in need of some attention) and large wood chip children’s play area. Beyond are extensive areas of lawn and a small area of woodland.
