Unique and luxuriously appointed house designed for family living and entertaining at its ultimate best.
Worden can be dated from the 16th century when it was reputedly a cider press and orchard. Over the years, it evolved into a full working farm, until the year 2000, when it was sold as a family home. Worden House is undoubtedly now, one of the jewels in the South Hams crown, a luxurious and unique house in a spectacular setting with lifestyle and fun at its core. The house is designed for family living and entertaining at its very best, with exquisite attention to detail at every turn. Worden House is arranged over three floors with generous and well-proportioned rooms throughout. The galleried entrance hall with high vaulted ceiling provides a warm welcome and leads through to the remaining reception rooms on the ground floor, including a wonderful kitchen / living room with open fire and fold back doors to the heated dining terrace and croquet lawn. In addition to the family kitchen / living room is a purpose built professional kitchen, situated in the heart of the house next to the dining room. Steps descend to the lower ground floor which comprises a large living area with dedicated bar, cinema / games room, Moroccan style Hammam spa and an impressive indoor swimming pool with wall to wall doors leading to the terrace. The first floor is occupied by 6 beautifully appointed bedroom suites, all with private bathrooms. In addition, there are a further two bedroom suites in the guest cottage and a wonderful party barn suitable for entertaining in style or alternatively providing a superb home office or children's den.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The grounds at Worden are as impressive as the house and offer more than a hint of Italy. 160 established olive trees have been planted amongst the rolling valley and provide a spectacular backdrop to the outdoor swimming pool and terrace. The gardens also more than hint at their natural heritage with a carpet of primroses, spring bulbs and a natural wild flower meadow. Within the grounds is an Astro Turf tennis court and pavilion and a pond, which is large enough to potter about on in a small rowing boat. The range of outbuildings include a three bay open car port, two garages, a stone barn and a large agricultural modern barn.
