About this property

  • The French house is an elegant, period home that has been beautifully designed with ample natural light and an intangible calmness. Set in a wonderfully maintained wrap around garden, backing on to private parkland it offers upmost privacy and tranquility.
    The house is entered into a delightful open plan living space with stone floors, Georgian windows and an abundance of natural light. The large, elegant entrance hall, with a sleek wine store leads into a double aspect sitting room with an open fireplace and doors to the garden. The spacious country style kitchen/dining room leading from the entrance hall creates the perfect entertaining space, featuring a large granite topped island, bluestone Verdigris lanterns, doors to the garden, a series of integrated Miele and Liebherr appliances and a 6 door AGA. An elegantly designed utility room, with access to the garden leads on from the kitchen, boasting stylish bespoke storage and a Belfast sink. The ground floor is completed by a charming double aspect snug with exposed beams, an open fireplace dating back to the 17th century with a wood burner and the original coal store.
    To the first floor there are four beautifully presented en-suite bedrooms, all with their own character and charm. The principal bedroom features a vaulted ceiling with sky lights, allowing natural light to flood into the room, bespoke storage and a Juliet balcony overlooking the beautiful gardens below.
    The house is accessed via electric wooden gates onto a paved drive allowing ample off-street parking. To the left there is a double car port with a stylish en suite annex above. To the rear there is a lovely patio area with access from the house, perfect for alfresco dining, which overlooks the beautifully maintained lawned garden which enjoys high levels of privacy and with a decorative gate overlooking private parkland. To the front of the property, there is a peaceful south facing garden with a variety of flowerbeds featuring flowers, shrubs and mature trees.
