About this property

  • Cascina Fontana Manor, dating from the latter part of the nineteenth century, is a substantial property of exceptional proportions. The house stands centrally overlooking the surrounding 9.5 acres of its parkland estate. The property can be reached by two separate entrances which lead through the grounds to the house. Part of the land was acquired by the current owners in order to create the maximum amount of privacy. The L-shaped house has extensive accommodation laid out over three floors. On entering the main gates of the house there is a gatehouse tower which has retained most of its original features and can be used as a guesthouse offering a level of privacy from the main building. With high panelled ceilings, wood and stone floors, and impressive fireplaces, the property has an air of stature and elegance. Each room has beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and large windows letting in natural light throughout the day.

    The main entrance hall leads to the master's study, an impressive drawing room, a large formal dining room and a large professional kitchen with a dining area for twelve people. On the upper floor there are three large bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, fitted wardrobes or walk-in wardrobes. There is also another study on this floor. The guest wing floor is entered separately from the main house and is ideal for maintaining privacy within the main property. The ground floor of the guest wing is a large open space with floor to ceiling glass doors which open onto the courtyard. The first floor consists of three double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and fitted wardrobes. A well-equipped gym and a sitting area with a fireplace occupy the whole of the upper floor.

    The property also has an ample wine cellar, a larder and a games room which opens onto the outdoor out-door dining area and leads to the swimming pool.

    Above the property is a stable yard with six paddocks, a tack room and two stables. There is also room to store a trailer.
