Country house with superb gardens, stabling and natural swimming pond, set in just under 5 acres.
Rockworth House is a spacious country house of some 4,500 square feet. The house has been equipped to high standards and offers superb family accommodation, with landscaped gardens surrounded by beautiful wild meadow land, with stabling, outbuildings and set in this sought after semi-rural, yet accessible location.
The property has a capacious reception hall with stone flagged floors and cloaks storage. A generous cloakroom with further storage lies off this. The kitchen/breakfast room also benefits from stone flagged floors and offers a superb space for a family with a generous breakfast/dining area and a range of bespoke hand built units with wood work surfaces and fitted appliances including a range style oven. Bi-fold doors lead out to the rear terrace and there are views across the gardens. The main reception room comprises a sitting room, dining area and a garden room with wood floors, a feature fireplace with marble surround and an extensive range of bespoke fitted cabinetry. The garden room area is glazed to three sides and offers access onto the rear terrace and garden. The family room is situated to the front of the house with double doors to the side garden area. The superb, bespoke fitted study is accessed from this room. The well fitted utility room completes the ground floor accommodation.
A beautiful oak staircase rises to the first floor landing and continues to the second floor. There are four bedroom suites on the first floor with shower/bathrooms fitted in a range of styles, both modern and traditional. The principal bedroom suite has a dressing room equipped with a range of furniture as well as a wet room. Double doors lead out onto a large balcony, the perfect place to enjoy the gardens and countryside views. There is a fifth bedroom and a stunning family bathroom with a free standing bath also on this floor. On the second floor there are two further bedrooms (one with an en suite shower room), a night cloakroom and a cinema room.
The property is wired with speakers for a Sonos' music system to some of the rooms and to the outside terrace. There is a Heatmiser' heating system as well as air conditioning to a selection of the rooms.
The property is approached through a choice of two vehicular electric wooden sliding gates onto a paved drive with parking for several cars. There is a two bay car port and an outbuilding/annexe with a gym and wine room on the ground floor, with a bedroom and en suite shower room on the first floor. This could easily be adapted to a self-contained one bedroom annexe. The formal rear garden is landscaped and mainly laid to lawn with an extensive terrace area with pergola. The borders are beautifully planted with shrubs and flowering plants. A winding path leads to a hot tub surrounded by wild flowers. A further path with a vine and wisteria clad pergola leads to an idyllic outside dining and separate seating area, perfect for entertaining with an outdoor fireplace. A kitchen garden with raised beds and a Victorian style greenhouse is wonderfully flanked by an espalier fruit tree screen. To the side of the house is a stable yard with four loose boxes, tack room and storage barn. Surrounding the formal gardens is a vibrant wildflower meadow with natural pathways, providing an eco-friendly wildlife haven, together with areas of woodland and a fruit orchard with apples, plum and cherry trees. In the corner of the meadow is a beautiful decked wildlife pond, brimming with activity. Of particular note is a wonderful 22 metre natural swimming pond and picnic lawn, blending seamlessly into the garden. The property extends to just under 5 acres in all and backs on to open farmland. The gardens benefit from Wi-Fi controlled lighting and also a rain water irrigation system.
