About this property

  • Access to the property is via the estate's private, gated drive that winds its way through the beautifully landscaped grounds, past the Grade II listed 16th century palace and on towards the house, which is one of 16 new properties built in the historic walled garden in 2016. The development has been designed to complement the Palace architecture and the house is constructed of red brick under a slate tiled roof.

    The property is discreetly positioned at the end of a select terrace and extends to around 1, 700 sq ft (158 sq m). The property provides modern interiors, decorated in neutral tones and has been thoughtfully designed for modern living with a ground floor bedroom and a stunning reception space, open plan to the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with units finished in two complementing tones of grey high-gloss, white quartz worksurfaces, LED shadow lighting and a range of integrated appliances that include a Smeg dishwasher and washing machine, Siemens combination oven and induction hob, a microwave and fridge and freezer. This very sociable room leads to the reception area and garden. The ground floor bedroom is located off the hall along with a cloakroom. The entrance door is inconspicuously positioned to the front of the building opening to an inviting and spacious entrance hall with stairs leading to the first floor accommodation. The two remaining double bedrooms offer luxury en suite facilities.

    Outside
    The garden extends from the house and commences a paved terrace and an area of artificial lawn with raised borders and gated access to two allocated parking spaces.

    The c. 8.5 acres of lawns and beautiful maintained gardens enjoyed by residents are an outstanding feature of this property. A series of pathways lead around the palace and gardens affording access to the 'rose garden', 'lawns' and 'secluded areas' as well as the tennis court. A concierge/ caretaker offers another additional benefit, assisting residents with tasks such as taking in parcels, enabling access for tradesmen etc., when you are out.

The communal grounds, lifestyle and sense of community explain why Danbury Palace proves so popular.
