    About this property

    • Our client purchased Rynn House in 2011, but only moved in about a year later, following a comprehensive re-modelling and refurbishment programme, which was well-designed at the time, and still presents well today.

      Everywhere is practical and spacious, leaning towards minimalist in style, with two stunning highlights.

      The very generously proportioned light-filled kitchen/breakfast/family room opens into the dining room and to the rear through bi-fold doors to a wrap-around terrace, facing south and east, offering a delightful garden aspect and fine distant views.

      The principal bedroom suite on the first floor has its own corridor entrance, dressing room with window, large en suite bathroom and great views.

      Features generally include Amtico wood effect flooring to the hall, kitchen/breakfast/family room, dining room, utility and cloakroom and a wood burning stove to the family area, modern lantern-style roof lights to the kitchen and the stairs/landing and period-style radiators to the key areas. There is also much use of plantation style shutters to the double glazed windows.

      The kitchen itself is cleverly and individually designed to fit the room, incorporating a walk-in pantry and a stylish and prominent, split circular island unit, with polished granite work tops and fitted with an Aga to one half and a breakfast bar to the other. The bathroom/shower rooms are all en suite to the five bedrooms, and all feature electric under floor heating.

      The mature rear garden extends to about 1.2 acres in all, comprising good entertaining areas around to the rear of the house, including an extensive wrap-around stone terrace, accessed directly from the kitchen/breakfast/family room and also the dining room. From here, a gate leads to a formal garden with a circular lawn and terracing, accessed from the sitting room and the games room.

      The terracing has steps down to a grassed area, gated onto the main parkland garden, so ideal for dogs. This comprises a sloping lawn, with a mixture of fencing and hedging to the boundaries, interspersed with a huge variety of wonderful trees and shrubs. There is a gated side access and a separate covered log store.

    I recommend walking straight through into the large kitchen/family room on entering the house. This might easily make the house irresistible in this location.
