    About this property

    • Alderbury Hill House offers over 10,000 sq. ft of beautifully appointed accommodation in total. There is an immaculate five bedroom family house behind handsome red brick, tiled and timbered elevations, with extensive ancillary domestic outbuildings and a further three beautifully converted cottages, which currently serve as holiday lets and return a good rental income.

      The owners have undertaken an holistic refurbishment of the whole property, including a new roof, new hardwood windows, new plumbing and compliant drainage systems and under-flooring heating. There is an integrated audio system in the house, pool house and parts of the garden. Importantly, there are also dual fibre broadband lines to the property. The property benefits from high ceilings and numerous attractive original details, while contemporary styling and modern fittings have been added. This is a house that equally suits family living and entertaining on a lavish scale. No expense has been spared in the refurbishment undertaken by the current owners.

      There are four reception rooms on the ground floor. The front door opens into a spacious reception hall, leading right in to the heart of the house. At the end is the light and airy kitchen, very much the heart of the home and welcomes plenty of natural light through seven sets of French doors, which open onto the rear terrace. There is a large island, an electric AGA and an extensive range of appliances including a Heatrae Sadia boiling water tap. The open plan dining area suits family living well, whilst the snug to the rear has a wood burning stove. The elegant drawing room opens from the reception hallway, with the large formal dining room just opposite. There is also a private study and a comfortable sitting room with fireplace, all of which are beautifully finished and presented. Practically, the house has also been thoughtfully configured; a side door leads to the boot room with adjoining cloakroom, and the utility room leads on to the plant room. On the first floor, the spacious principal bedroom has a Juliet balcony, its own dressing room and a large en-suite bathroom with dual washbasins, a freestanding bathtub and a separate rain shower. There are four further bedrooms, all of which are immaculate, all with their own en-suite bathrooms or shower rooms.

      Cottages and Outbuildings
      The pool house is a useful ancillary space to the main house if you are letting out the cottages. It has a sixth guest bedroom and provides a wonderful entertaining area which opens onto a south facing terrace which consists of 215 sqm of tumbled sand stone. The property has six outbuildings, three of which have been converted to create three beautifully appointed holiday cottages, with views across the beautiful grounds. Each of the cottages has a fully equipped kitchen, and all provide a living space and two bedrooms with bathrooms. The remaining outbuildings include a large garage block with office facilities, a three bay car barn and a stable block, with three loose boxes.

      Gardens and Grounds
      The house and outbuildings are set in extensive, rolling parkland grounds with magnificent views across the surrounding countryside. The driveway leads to a large gravel parking area at the front of the house, and further parking can be found round to the rear of the property, where the cottages and further outbuildings are situated.

      The gardens and grounds include extensive lawns and meadows, whilst a 250 sqm paved limestone flagged terrace wraps around the side and rear of the house. There is a heated swimming pool and a hard tennis court. There are also paddocks for exercising horses. The gardens and grounds all benefit from an integrated watering system and specialist lighting has been installed to enhance the terracing and features of the property. In addition, there is a private bore hole which is not currently in use.

    Rarely do such beautifully presented properties come to the market where you can literally move in and drop your suit cases. I love the amount of natural light coursing through all the principal rooms.
