About this property

  • Access to the property is via the estate's private, gated drive that winds its way through the beautifully landscaped grounds, past the Grade II listed 16th century palace and on towards the house, which is one of 16 new properties built in the historic walled garden in 2016. The development has been designed to complement the Palace architecture and the house is constructed of red brick under a slate tiled roof.

    The interior is decorated in soft neutral shades and has a light and airy feel and the high specification includes provision for a future wireless alarm system, double glazed windows with chrome fittings, low energy lighting and walnut finish internal doors, with Amtico flooring in the hallway, kitchen, utility room and bathrooms and deep pile carpets in the reception and bedrooms. The hall provides access to all of the ground floor accommodation, which includes a sitting room/dining room, a kitchen/breakfast room, a cloakroom and understair cupboard. The sitting room/dining room is a versatile space, with bi-fold doors giving a superb view of the pretty, part-walled garden, while the 17' deep kitchen has a large bay window to the front. The kitchen is fitted with units finished in two complementing tones of grey high-gloss, white quartz worksurfaces, LED shadow lighting and a range of integrated appliances that include a NEFF dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer, combination oven and induction hob. A utility room to the rear includes an integral washer/dryer, sink and worksurface, matching kitchen units, gas central heating boiler, a water softener and an external door providing access to the side of the house.

    The three bedrooms on the first floor include the master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and an en suite including a shower with rain shower head, a WC and heated towel rail, while the other two bedrooms have the use of a family bathroom with separate shower and bath.

    The garden has a large patio leading on to a lawn with herbaceous beds, one or two specimen trees and a small summer house with power and lighting to the rear. The front of the house has driveway parking for two cars and a gate on the right hand side gives pedestrian access to the back of the house. There is also provision for some additional visitor parking. Both the front and rear of the property is provided with external taps and weatherproof power sockets.

    Grounds and Gardens
    The c. 8.5 acres of lawns and beautiful maintained gardens enjoyed by residents is an outstanding feature of this property. A series of pathways lead around the palace and gardens affording access to the 'rose garden', 'lawns' and 'secluded areas' as well as the tennis court. A Concierge/ Caretaker offers another additional benefit, assisting residents with tasks such as taking in parcels, enabling access for tradesmen etc., when you are out.
