About this property

  • Believed to have been built in 1920 on land forming part of the Duc d'Orleans estate, Lenchwick House is a handsome detached property with versatile and spacious accommodation laid out over two floors. Scope exists to remodel the existing layout to suit the needs of modern life (subject to the usual consents). The property retains some period features including ceiling cornicing, sash windows and a handsome carved fireplace.

    You enter the property via the welcoming entrance hall which provides access to three principal reception rooms, a drawing room with conservatory, dining room and snug, all with fine views over the gardens. The drawing room is particularly magnificent and has a wonderful bay window. There is also a comfortable snug, again with a bay window.

    The kitchen is fitted out with a comprehensive range of cabinets and an Aga. Across the hall is a very useful walk-in larder. Adjoining the kitchen is a large room which is currently used as an office and has access to a shower room but could become a ground floor bedroom. Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom and utility, the latter accessed from the garden.

    The staircase to the bedroom accommodation rises from the hall. The good sized landing leads to the principal bedroom with fitted cupboards, a large window and en suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle. There are four further bedrooms sharing a bathroom and a store cupboard.

    The gardens, which are mainly laid to lawn with ornamental specimen trees, lie to three sides of the property and offer seclusion and views from all aspects. A pretty veranda adjoins the property providing an ideal place for summer dining. The grounds beyond the gardens are permanent pasture dotted with mature parkland trees.

    The property is approached from the village lane via a long driveway which terminates at the property.

    Up to about 32 acres in total by negotiation.
