About this property

  • A striking property with the possibility of being utilised as either one large family home, or as two separate smaller homes, with an interconnecting door between the two. It is originally believed to date back into the mid 1700's, but adapted and modernised throughout in the late 1990's and duly further enhanced with a major extension of particular architectural note, as deemed by RIBA, being a runner up of the Ibstock Downland prize.

    The property occupies a delightful private position tucked away in a gated and walled setting, overlooking its mature south facing gardens, with a French door off the vaulted and beamed drawing room opening on to the southerly facing terrace, and dual French doors opening off the kitchen to the inner courtyard garden, both looking on to stunning architectural features such as an oriel window off the master bedroom Juliet balcony and a cloistered glazed and vaulted reception hall, either wonderful for ‘Al Fresco' dining. Many other stunning features are to be found throughout the

    Affording an impressive blend of modern and contemporary yet traditional well apportioned striking accommodation of approximately 2,841 sq ft, the property incorporates stylish fixtures and fittings.

    The Studio/annexe
    Approached directly off the drive, facing back towards the house itself, the studio / annexe is attractively timber built with painted elevations and dual windows to the front, affording great natural light and a spacious feel. The flexible open plan space comprises a sitting room/office with a kitchenette, and a shower room off.

    Approached via timber electric gates, the gravelled driveway offers parking for numerous vehicles. A stone terrace runs across the back of the house, with low steps leading up to the main lawned and walled garden, which benefits from extensively planted mature flower beds with an array of herbaceous plants, shrubs, and trees. Off to one side of the garden, there is a useful brick built store.
