Enchanting Georgian Grade II listed family home sitting in about 4 acres.
Grade II listed and believed to date back to 1721 with later additions, Tubney Warren House is an idyllic family home. With considerable outside space, recently re surfaced club size tennis court, 32 x 16ft swimming pool and generously sized, beautifully proportioned rooms inside, the house has everything required for large family get-togethers and for friends to gather.
The typically Georgian Cotswold stone façade with its ornamental frieze, stunning deep sash windows and entrance porch make for a captivating south facing elevation festooned with wisteria. A family home for the last 29 years, it has been lovingly and sensitively restored and enhanced, maintaining period details including the tapestry rails in the reception rooms, wooden shutters to the sash windows and plaster ceiling roses.
The front porch and entrance hall welcome you into the heart of the house with its wide oak staircase winding to the upper floors. The ground floor connects all rooms, effortlessly ensuring a pleasing flow which enhances the warmth and feeling of wellbeing of the house.
The kitchen/breakfast room is open to the family room, making a delightfully warm and welcoming space. The farmhouse style kitchen has a 4 door Aga, bespoke painted units and dresser, Verde limestone worktops and French doors to the garden.
The family end of the room faces south with a big wood burning stove. A second kitchen room housing additional appliances and large Belfast sink is located directly off, making for easy entertaining as well as convenient day to day food and wine storage and preparation. Superfast broadband is fed by fibre into a generously sized study with a wood A-frame truss to the eaves. This is filled with light thanks to triple aspect windows as well as velux, making this ideal work space both light and spacious. Leading off from the boot room, the study also has a door directly to the garden and its own private patio area.
The charming south and east facing sitting room with its open fire, floor length sash window and wooden shutters opens directly from the hall. This leads on to the double aspect dining room, also with an open fireplace and deep square bay window looking onto the croquet lawn. The dining room doubles back to the rear hall and from this one enters a laundry room featuring a Verde limestone work surface with further Belfast sink and ample storage along with a toilet and washbasin. Warmed by the primary boiler, two cellar rooms providing useful extra storage space are easily accessible via a staircase from the hall.
Upstairs, the beautiful principal bedroom suite spans the entire depth of the house. Dual aspect with south and east facing views, this opens to a dressing area and a fitted out walk-in wardrobe. This leads further to the stunning and stylish bathroom. A slipper bath, tucked beneath the large window, looks straight onto the quintessentially English country garden at the rear of the property. A double vanity unit is clad in limestone, matching the large glazed open shower. A cushioned bench seat adds a quirky and tasteful touch to a bathroom created to be a delightful place to both start and end one's day.
As well as the family bathroom and adjacent walk in linen cupboard, 3 further good sized bedrooms lead off from the first floor landings, 1 with an en suite shower room. A second staircase leads back down to the rear hall.
On the second floor are 3 further delightful bedrooms and another family bathroom, all with exposed beams, the two main bedrooms looking onto the rear garden. Accessible from one of these there is also a large attic room in addition to copious eaves storage.
The very essence of the house is a well-loved family home, which it has been for nearly 30 years.
