      Equally suited to an extended family as for entertaining, there is ample staff accommodation and potentially two further self contained guest suites or for providing home offices with reception areas and a separate guest entrance.

      The house is arranged in three distinct wings set around an award winning ‘courtyard' garden providing a delightful outlook from the principal rooms and pool through large triple glazed windows and patio doors. Oak floors with marquetry borders set off the main reception rooms and this quality is reflected throughout.

      The gardens and woodland extend to about 2.5 acres in all, with a flat lawn to the east and a raised planted bank beyond. The six car garage lies to the side at the front and a large block paved parking area stands at the front. The extended portico allows one to alight from vehicles under cover and there is a separate front access to one of the apartment or office areas.

      The award winning courtyard garden is beautifully stocked and includes water features, a pond and waterfall set amidst gravel pathways with a profusion of specimen shrubs and bushes. An alfresco entertaining area lies at the rear of the garden room with a chimneyed barbecue. Wonderful for relaxing after a swim or a work-out in the gym. A bridge leads over the natural stream at the rear of the formal gardens and leads into the woodland with a private nature trail and pathways, eventually leading to The Nook section of the TT course. There are a number of specially commissioned garden features including a summer house.

    Amazing house in a superb location, gardens extend as far as The Nook on the TT course. Portico entrance to always arrive in style.
