About this property

  • Tixall House is an elegant country house with great charm situated within the village conservation area. It offers well balanced formal and informal rooms and extremely attractive gardens and grounds.

    A gravelled drive leads to the front door and into a formal reception hall with wooden flooring leading to a wood panelled, double aspect dining room. To the opposing side of the reception hall is the double sitting room with decorative covings and three windows overlooking the garden. This flows into the more contemporary drawing room with two sets of French doors leading to the terrace and gardens. The kitchen boasts tiled floors, beams to the ceiling, a four-oven AGA and a separate utility room and wine store. Also to the ground floor is a playroom and WC and an adjoining brick built car port with access directly into the boot room.

    A stylish staircase leads to the first floor with a master bedroom suite with views over the gardens, an en suite bathroom and dressing room. There are six further bedrooms, most with fitted wardrobes, and two with en suite bathrooms plus two additional family bathrooms. Also to the first floor is a spacious study with a balcony.

    Outside
    Sitting to the north of the house is a separate two storey coach house with a workshop and substantial garaging to the ground floor. The 1st floor of the coach house provides opportunity for a number of different uses as ancillary accommodation, a home office, media room or a gym. There is a kitchenette and a bathroom already in place.

    The house sits in lovely mature gardens and grounds offering a high level of privacy and extending to about 2.72 acres, bordered in part by stone and brick walls and by mature hedging to the remainder. Included within the gardens is an arboretum, a rose garden, lawned areas and well stocked borders. To the west of the house lies a private swimming pool with an 18th century timber and brick built pump house servicing the pool.
