A beautiful 18th century Grade II listed period house, rich with history, offering charm, character and flexible family accommodation.
A unique opportunity to acquire this charming Grade II listed Georgian property. The original house, owned by Sir George Lewis, a famous lawyer of his day and confidant of the Prince of Wales. It was built circa 1720 and later converted in 1922 to provide three homes. Ashley House being the principle wing retaining the main reception rooms.
Set well back from the road, the property has a generous frontage (approx. 118 ft.), electronic gates and a gravel drive.
This imposing period house retains many of its original features. These include some intricate detailing such as ornate plasterwork and cornicing, high ceilings, panelled walls, wide doors, sash windows with internal shutters and box bay windows.
Built in the Georgian era but refurbished by the current owners the house combines grandeur and elegance, to more than meet the demands of modern living.
From the moment you walk through the front door this home invites you in. The impressive entrance hall flooded with light is a key feature of the house and absolutely ideal for entertaining and welcoming friends and family into your home.
The drawing room is a lovely space with parquet flooring and a wood burning stove providing the focal point. This gives access to the small conservatory, which is currently being used as a study.
The generous dining room is situated at the rear, again with parquet flooring throughout, a log burning stove with marble surround and French doors leading out to the garden. This gives you access to the striking kitchen/breakfast room with a Mercury oven, American fridge/freezer and sociable central island. This room also give access to the garden, creating the perfect place to entertain.
Also downstairs is a laundry room and guest cloakroom.
On the first floor is the main bedroom with an open fireplace and views out to the rear garden. There are three further double bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Externally to the rear is the beautiful south easterly facing garden. Mainly laid to lawn with a generous patio area. There is a lovely den in the far left corner, perfect for children to play. There is a Mulberry tree situated in the centre, steeped in history, this tree was once planted at Hampton Court Palace.
