An impressive and well-placed country house set within established grounds, backing onto the golf course, next to the racecourse
Dating back to about 1908, Charlewood is a fine Edwardian house, striking in appearance and privately set within established grounds.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors, with the impressive formal reception rooms positioned on the southerly side, either side of the spacious central reception hall. This is a fine room, opening out to the gardens and with a turn-staircase rising up to the first floor accommodation and featuring a tall window over the half landing.
Notable features throughout the reception areas include large bay windows with a lovely outlook, high ceilings with decorative mouldings, fireplaces, oak flooring and oak panelling in the dining room. The bespoke hand-painted kitchen/breakfast room has painted wooden units with wood, marble and tiled surfaces, as well as tiled flooring, centred around a recessed Falcon gas range cooker. This in turn leads through to the large garden/family room, creating attractive informal space, ideal for modern day living.
In additional to the main accommodation, there is a flexible first floor annexe with its own front door. This can be expanded into the ground floor to make it even more spacious, if desired.
The separate Lodge Cottage has been recently modernised by our clients and is very well presented. There is a discreet area of garden and parking by the main gates, with the apple orchard and further screening from the gardens of the main house.
The gardens and grounds are a real feature of the property, with mature hedging and rhododendrons to the boundaries and an impressive treelined approach drive behind the entrance gates. The formal lawns and extensive planting lie immediately behind the house and are laid-out and divided by shingled pathways, together with an orchard and a paddock beyond, which has its own access to the drive, the cottage garden, greenhouses, planted areas and two large garden sheds.

A gem of a mini country estate, with so much to like, but with its position right at the top of the list for me.Robert JacobsProperty agent
