    About this property

    • Formally the shooting lodge for the Roche Court estate, this beautiful house was originally three cottages built in the 1890s. In 2010 The Shooting Box was extensively redesigned and rebuilt from the frame to create one superb family house. The roof was completely recreated using the original period clay roof tiles, while the house was lime rendered to preserve its period features. The interior is superbly presented and designed with meticulous attention to detail.
      The front door leads into a spacious formal sitting room with oak flooring and a large fireplace with a brick surround. The double doors lead to a beautiful Mackintosh kitchen and dining area which was installed in 2019. There are ample floor and wall mounted cupboards with oak inserts and an island with a ceramic top which was supplied by John Lewis of Hungerford. There is a 6 burner gas range made by Bertsazzoni and a wood burner in the dining area. French doors with side lights lead out to the terrace and garden beyond. The utility houses both a sink, the washing machine and a separate tumble dryer built into the counter cupboards. A separate WC leads from the utility. In the other half of the ground floor there is a snug with a wood burner, an office with an external door leading to the garden and a spacious music room. There is a separate study and boot room with another external door and a separate WC.
      The staircase from the sitting room leads to a spacious landing and corridor. The principle bedroom with an Art Nouveau fireplace has an en-suite bathroom with a sink, WC and a bath. The second bedroom has built in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom, with a separate enclosed shower, bath, sink and WC. There are a further two double bedrooms both with Art Nouveau fireplaces and a large family bathroom with a separate enclosed shower, bath, sink and WC. Each room from the first floor has commanding views of the countryside.

      The entrance to the property is gated with a large gravel driveway. The ultra wide-bay double garage is built using oak and has a mezzanine for storage. There is a separate timber framed stable with two stalls with a sheltered standing area.
      The immaculate grounds extend to approximately 3.08 acres in total. This includes a post and rail paddock and an extensive garden which is predominantly lawn. There are a wide variety of mature trees including several that came directly from Kew Gardens. These include a Deodar, Atlas Cedars, an Italian Alder, a London Plane, a Tulip Tree and many others. The property is surrounded by uninterrupted rural countryside.
