Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Substantial house central in its parkland.

Description

Electric wrought-iron gates open into a long estate drive passing through a colourful planting of specimen trees and well tended lawns to a substantial courtyard in front of the house, with water fountain turning circle.

The south-facing house has striking elevations of pargeted render, relieved by red brick and clay hanging tiles under a clay tiled roof, designed to take advantage of its beautiful setting, enjoying a seamless relationship with the grounds.

The accommodation is 'L' shaped in design, versatile and light filled. The reception hall features a sweeping oak staircase, with matching panelling and ceiling timbers. Pride of place goes to the beautiful kitchen and orangery, enjoying views towards the lake and water feature. In contrast, the dining, drawing and snooker rooms, occupying the east wing, have a more traditional feel with exposed ceiling timbers, brickwork and grand hand-carved fireplaces. At the far end of the east wing is a self-contained wing with its own stairs, reception room, three bedrooms and a bathroom. The first floor has four bedrooms, three of which are en suite. The master suite includes a walk-in dressing room and en suite bathroom with separate shower.

Outside
The grounds are stunning, planted for all-year colour and interest with a variety of deciduous specimen trees, interwoven with path and driveway. In front of the house is a substantial parking area with a water feature with carved stone statue; beyond is an integral treble garage. The grounds to the north include a beautiful lake with stone bridge over, vast swathes of lawn and a hard enclosed tennis court. At the far end, forming a focal point, is a classical pavilion, on high ground. Within high evergreen hedging is an overspill car park and composting area.

Outbuildings
There are some very useful buildings including an entertaining barn with dance floor, bar and adjoining rooms. On the other side of the drive is a further outbuilding/garden stores.
