Stunning country house in a beautiful setting.
The charming accommodation is light-filled with high ceilings,
well-proportioned and elegant rooms throughout. The accommodation flows well with an impressive entrance hall with
stone floors, a sweeping staircase leading onto a galleried landing and decorative cornice work. The drawing room has a superb bow end with large full height sash windows and attractive views over the gardens. 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
window, fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. The other
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 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.
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.
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.Tom OrfordProperty agent
