A beautiful Grade II* listed village house with stunning garden and listed studio/outbuilding with planning.
Burghurst Manor House is an outstanding Grade II* Listed village house with delightful gardens of about 0.70 of an acre and a detached listed outbuilding benefiting from planning for a two bedroom dwelling with garaging and its own private garden.
Commanding a central village position with timeless views to the south, this beautifully presented and proportioned family home, dates in part from the 15th century with later 18th century addition and boasts accommodation amounting to over 5,000 sq ft including cellarage and extensive loft space.
Attractive reception rooms with high ceilings comprise an impressive reception hall, a drawing room of excellent proportions, a wonderful oak panelled sitting room and an adjacent dining room, both enjoying a lovely southerly aspect and a study/home office. Together, they provide excellent areas for entertaining.
The generous kitchen/breakfast room with stunning arched doors leads to the terrace and garden. This light and airy room has hand painted cupboards, gas fired Aga and two ring electric hob.
A large utility/laundry room, boot room/secondary kitchen both provide further shelving, storage and space for various white goods. A cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.
An elegant sweeping staircase leads to the galleried first floor landing which in turn leads to five double bedrooms that are served by five stylishly appointed bath/shower rooms and two dressing rooms, one with extensive cupboards.
Access can be gained to a superb unconverted loft (with ancient crown post), spanning the width of the house.
Outside, the beautiful part walled gardens of about 0.70 of an acre extend to the rear of the house with the rose garden designed by award-winning Chelsea gold medalist Jo Thompson. There is also a kitchen garden and fabulous heated outdoor swimming pool surrounded by yew hedging. Electric wooden gates open to the off road parking area for several cars, a garage and workshop.
The Grade II listed outbuilding lies to the north east of the garden and can be accessed directly from the garden or via a right of way over the neighbouring drive. It currently incorporates a versatile first floor studio, kitchen and bathroom with garaging beneath, but planning has been granted for a two bedroom home.
