Description

Kimbrook House is a beautiful Grade II listed Georgian village house set in 3.5 acres of formal gardens and parkland. Dating from the late 17th century, and re-fronted in the late 19th century with handsome rendered brick with rusticated stone quoins and deeply moulded stone cornice and modern glazed sitting room addition to the south east designed by Nicolas Tye architects.

Kimbrook House is an exceptional family home which has been meticulously renovated and sympathetically extended by the current owners. The principal house combines elegant reception rooms, ideal for entertaining and at first floor there is comfortable bedroom accommodation. The second floor has another two bedrooms, both with vaulted ceilings and a large family bathroom with roll top bath and double shower. The single storey family room extension has been carefully placed away from the key historic facades, ensuring minimal disturbance to the historic fabric and setting; allowing the listed structure to remain dominant in scale and presence. The use of glass links allows visual separation while creating a flow between the listed building and extension. Two key materials used were dark copper cladding and minimal framed glass, both materials harmonise whilst emphasising the listed buildings current style. The use of bio-diverse green roofs allows the existing habitat below the footprint of the buildings to be retained, this also softens the buildings into the site when viewed from the upper levels of the 3 storey listed structure.

The property stands in a most idyllic position with far reaching views and electric gated access leading to a gravelled carriage driveway with central lawned area, mature trees and flowering and shrub borders, red brick wall to the front and further access via five bar gate. The formal gardens to the rear have been meticulously maintained and are a stunning feature of this special period home. The gardens feature mature box hedging, well-tended flowering and shrub borders, lawn, trees, including magnificent Wellingtonias believed to be part of an Avenue leading down from Kimbolton Castle, and paved terrace adjoining the sitting room, kitchen and glazed family room affording the opportunity for alfresco dining. The gardens also enjoy all-weather tennis court, “garden pod”, pond, timber summer house and storage shed for garden machinery. The formal gardens are partly walled with red brick Victorian garden house 6’10 x 7’ with a pitched slate roof, windows to three aspects, 6 panelled timber entrance door and open fireplace. There is a newly planted orchard to the north of the garden intersected by a footpath which has been fully fenced and not visible from the rear of the house.

The property comprises about 3.5 acres in total.

There are four garages linked internally to the main house. The garages have a charging point for an electric vehicle.

Square Footage: 4,702 sq ft
Acreage: 3.5 Acres
