About this property

  • The central part of a period building which dates from 1885, formally the home of Lord Northbrook, it became a boarding house for St Swithun's School, before being converted into five individual homes in the early 1980's. The current owners have carried out a careful renovation programe, and the house now blends the period features and characteristics of the era, with contemporary style and practical spaces.

    Of particular note is the impressive drawing room, with high ceilings and stone fire surround and wood burning stove, a really elegant room which is exceptionally light, as it leads into the recently added garden room – this has been thoughtfully done to enjoy the garden, whilst not detracting from the original building. The kitchen has been very cleverly designed and enjoys a view over the front garden.

    On the first floor is the principal bedroom with excellent built in wardrobes, along with a bathroom with wet room and separate free standing bath. There is also a fourth bedroom/study on this floor. The second floor comprises two further bedrooms and a shower room.

    To the front the house is an attractive low level brick and flint wall the house is accessed via a wrought iron pedestrian gate, where there is a courtyard garden. To the rear of the house is a cleverly landscaped garden which has a deck and raised planters and leading onto a faux grass lawn area. There is a pergola providing cover over a dining area which has an outdoor log burner. There is rear access to the garden which leads out to the garage.
