Built in 1923, we understand, and being of the Arts and Crafts Movement style, the main house, Durford Edge faces south to the rear, allowing natural light into the main rooms. Built in local stone, in an Elizabethan style, the well-proportioned accommodation includes fine oak doors, oak and pine beamed ceilings, leaded light double glazing and attractive fireplaces. Durford Edge, along with The Hollow, the potential leisure complex, provides a rare opportunity to buy a little piece of architectural history, offering, as it does, huge potential and scope for enhancement. The house retains many of the original ideas and features incorporated into the design by Henry Inigo Triggs. We understand that the extensive gardens were originally designed by Gertrude Jekyll; one of the most important British Landscape Designers of the twentieth century. The property lies within mature and varied grounds.
6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 separate wcs, entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, library, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, cloakroom, sauna room. Workshop, games room, garage, potential leisure complex, gardens and grounds.
