The Orangery is set in a beautiful elevated setting with far reaching views to the south.
The Orangery is a unique new home set in this beautiful part of Bletchingley, in an elevated position with stunning southerly views sweeping over verdant National Trust farmland down into the Weald of Sussex.
Nestled in a cul de sac on the edge of the village and within the remaining buildings of the Victorian country estate, Castle Hill, the Orangery offers the tranquility and ambience of its country estate origins. It sits adjacent to the restored stone mansion, which was converted to six luxury apartments seven years ago.
The Orangery, together with the neighboring homes, sits on the ancient monument, Bletchingley Castle. The main wing of the original mansion was removed in the 1950's and the Orangery is sited on the footprint of the ballroom and billiard room. A cellar was used to provide for storage of heating coal for a glass house, and it is now accessed by stone steps under the western terrace.
The final phase of fitting out works will commence soon and provides a wonderful opportunity to bespoke and make your own.
The Orangery is approached through private gates, with ample parking within the spacious forecourt.
The Orangery is being finished to a high specification offering a spacious 3175 sq ft of accommodation with generous proportions ideal for modern living.
The five bedrooms and five bathrooms are arranged over the two floors of the north wing which also houses a separate utility and integral double garage /games room.
The vast triple aspect orangery wing provides open plan living, looking over the south facing garden and views beyond. The 36sqm (387 sq ft) mezzanine floor has great potential for a home office and benefits from the same outlook.
A set of French doors on the west leads to a paved terrace for outdoor entertaining. The cellar below provides outdoor storage and possibilities for a wine store.
