There is a central fireplace with decorative surround and two recessed display alcoves. Double doors open through to the dining room with further cornice work, full height sash windows and views over the gardens. The sitting room/library has panelled walls, an open fireplace and fitted book shelving. The conservatory opens
      into a snug sitting room with an open fireplace and connects
      through to the kitchen. Doors open onto the terrace with
      wonderful views over the stunning grounds. A further
      entrance hall has a cloakroom to one side, storage cupboard and connects through to the front hall. The kitchen has
      comprehensive base and wall mounted solid units incorporating Miele ovens, a five plate gas hob, dishwasher and granite tops. Beyond the kitchen is the breakfast room with French doors leading onto the terrace. The first floor has a spacious
      galleried landing with doors to the principal bedroom with bay

      bedrooms also have in-built wardrobes and two have en suite
      shower rooms with a further dressing room/bedroom five and
      family bathroom off the side landing.

      The Outside
      The house is set back from the small lane with the drive culminating to the side of the house where there is a lovely
      veranda and espalier pear trees. There is a double garage with
      large wood store, further store room, a home office and wine
      store. A gateway leads to the gardens of the house which are
      south west facing with a sheltered terrace, and with a
      wisteria along the house elevation. To the far side is a
      further traditional outbuilding in an L shape comprising a gym
      room, machinery stores and shelter for a back-up generator.

      Owl Cottage
      The holiday cottage is situated in a tucked away position from the house and previously used as a home office. The accommodation is hugely appealing with the main sitting room featuring stone floors, pitched ceiling and a wood burner. A modern kitchen with granite worktops is located off the inner hall along with two bedrooms and wet room. There are delightful wooded grounds and large sweeping lawns which are interspersed with specimen trees. A bridge leads over the river to the far bank which backs onto pasture land. To the far end of the property is a spring fed natural swimming pond with jetty. The wood, which is planted with thousands of spring bulbs, continues to a further meadow which has a stable/shelter and amounts to about 1.8 acres and is available by separate negotiation.

      Mains electricity, water and drainage. Heating via a ground
      source heat pump.

      Agent Note
      Planning permission for a ground mounted photovoltaic array.
      There is also a footpath from Mill Lane lane which leads past the
      house towards the village and is predominantly hedged on either side.

    The setting is simply beautiful. I love the way the house is orientated to take full advantage of the stunning views over the river and lovely open countryside.
