    About this property

    • Originally dating back to the1960s Ardlui was developed on land which belonged to the Manor House next door. Our selling clients carried out a comprehensive re-modelling of the property about 12 years ago which included a partial re-build incorporating a new roof, new windows, underfloor heating, wiring and plumbing, with everything finished to a beautiful interior designed specification.

      The property has been well cared for and still feels like new; with many features of special note, namely the bespoke turn staircase to the double height entrance hall, linking the generous reception spaces downstairs to the first floor landing library.

      The three inter-linked reception rooms have a wonderful outlook and one incorporates a stylish, open-plan kitchen. In addition, we should mention the stand-out principal bedroom suite, with its balcony and views, as well as a luxury bathroom and a separate dressing room.

      The spacious kitchen/dining/family room and the sitting room have sliding doors onto the south-facing terrace, covered with a modern pergola, providing shade when required.

      The landscaped garden does not disappoint, with beautiful flowers, shrubs and trees and generous lawns on two levels. There is an amazing landscaped pond just beyond the terrace, lying in full view from the house and complete with a period, oak framed covered bridge, acting as a fine vantage point for sitting and enjoying the garden and the distant view in all weather.

      A path leads down to the bottom of the garden, through an area of orchard, where there is a further large entertainment area, incorporating a swimming pool (with safety cover) and a pool house, plus a large vegetable and fruit garden, set around a double greenhouse, often used for indoor dining.

      To the front, the drive is initially shared and accesses the private parking and the integral garage.

    This really shows what is possible these days, when a typical 1960's house is given an imaginative, high quality make-over, making it stand out at this level, amongst the alternatives.
