Description

Herbert House has colour-washed rendered elevations with contrasting slate roof relieved by deep sash windows and stands centrally within its own parkland grounds. The centrepiece of this house is a magnificent custom-built kitchen and family room, a light-filled room with bi-fold doors opening on to the terrace and gardens. Other notable features are the beautiful conservatory, well proportioned dining room and at the rear of the house, the drawing room which overlooks the rear gardens.

On the first floor there are five bedrooms with three bathrooms, two of which are en suite.

Herbert House enjoys a 105m road frontage with two five-bar entrance gates opening into a sweeping gravelled drive passing the front of the house, which in turn provides access to the garage block providing a double garage and adjoining games room (easily reverted to further garaging). Immediately adjoining the house is a lovely stone terrace, ideal for alfresco dining. The gardens behind the house are completely secluded, surrounded by a variety of deciduous and evergreen trees and beyond is a pavilion which adjoins the fenced all-weather tennis court finished with Astroturf. To the west is an enclosed swimming pool and entertaining area, which includes a tiled in-ground heated pool.

A surrounding paved area includes a pool house comprising kitchen, changing room, shower room and WC.

To the south of the grounds is a detached building, ideal for home working, a playroom or a gym.
