Description

Welkin Hurst is set at the top of Winter Hill in picturesque landscaped gardens. Designed to be the perfect garden for family entertainment and relaxation. The property was refurbished 10 years ago to the family’s exacting specifications. This has created a home that offers beautifully presented and spacious entertaining and living spaces.

The ground floor features a spacious and welcoming reception hall. A dining room with French doors opens onto the garden, and a drawing room with wonderful inglenook fireplace provides for formal entertaining. The glorious orangery links the indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces. This provides a light filled space with glass pitched roof, three sets of sliding doors opening onto the paved sun terrace and discreet fully equipped bar. It also has superb views to the swimming pool & croquet lawn. There is a family room with bespoke library shelving, triple aspect views and direct garden access, and a study/office with en suite facilities. A beautifully fitted traditional kitchen/breakfast room with a comprehensive range of units, large central island, integrated appliances and breakfast dining area, is complemented by a large utility room with extensive storage space and range of appliances. A boot room with direct access to the front of the property and the integral double garage provides a useful day-to-day entrance. A spacious ground floor bedroom suite has a fully fitted dressing area, fantastic garden views and a luxurious en suite shower room.

On the first floor there is a generous open landing area that would be ideal for an informal sitting and media room. There are five good double bedrooms and three luxury bathrooms to the first floor (in addition to the full suite on the ground floor). One of the bedrooms has a back staircase down to the utility room and kitchen area on the ground floor, making it ideal for guests or an au pair/nanny.

Welkin Hurst is set within enchanting landscaped gardens that wrap around the house. The house itself is situated centrally on the plot giving an excellent degree of privacy in all directions. Features include a specimen Blue Cedar and Japanese pagoda, croquet lawn, a wonderful woodland walk and ornamental pond. The sweeping lawns around the property beautifully showcase these features. There is a heated swimming pool with pretty twin circular pool houses, one housing spa facilities, with a paved surround providing ample relaxation space. An enclosed tennis court is adjacent to a croquet lawn. Further outbuildings include a heated plant house with mature grape vine, numerous greenhouses and sheds, and a brick-build double car port in addition to the integral double garage.
