About this property

  • Micklefield Green House is a charming family house and is all that remains of a much larger mansion dating back to about 1740. It is listed Grade II as being of architectural and historical importance. The house has been sympathetically restored in recent years. The addition of an award-winning circular kitchen, with French doors to a large patio area, provides a wonderful area for entertaining.

    The light and airy accommodation is arranged over three floors and retains many of the original period features such as a fine staircase, an open fireplace, a wood-burning stove, panelling and polished timber floors.

    Both the beautiful drawing room and the principal bedroom enjoy a stunning double aspect view over the gardens. The top floor has recently been re-modelled, creating a large family room, as well as a substantial guest suite.

    Outside
    The mature gardens and grounds are a particular feature providing a wonderful private aspect. Much of the five acres is given over to easily maintained lawns and woodland including many large trees, some over 200 years old.

    The property is approached from a village road through brick pillars onto a long gravel driveway sweeping up to the front of the house and onwards to the garage and additional parking.

    The formal gardens lie to the south and east of the house. From the kitchen is a large brick paved terrace with steps to the heated outdoor swimming pool. Below the top lawns is a large, old walled garden, with fruit and vegetable beds. There is considerable woodland, and the potential to create pony paddocks if required.

    Mains water and electricity. Private drainage and oil fired radiators and central heating. LPG gas for the AGA.

    Fixtures and Fittings
    Only those mentioned in the sales particulars are included in the sale, all others such as fitted carpets, curtains, light fittings and garden ornaments are specifically excluded but may be made available by separate negotiation.
