Period' elegance in glorious rolling countryside
This period' house was built about 17 years ago in the Queen Anne style, under a clay tiled roof, and cleverly embodies all the gracious living of a bygone era with all that is expected in today's modern age. Beautifully proportioned rooms lead from a gracious galleried reception hall accessed through oak entrance doors. The drawing room maintains perfect symmetry around the central fireplace and houses the integrated sound system that also serves the dining room and kitchen/conservatory areas. All these rooms have doors onto the stone terrace to the rear of the house. No expense has been spared in the décor, there being hand paint finishes used to great effect, especially in the bespoke kitchen/breakfast room with its island unit, Stoves range cooker, underfloor heating and unique dresser'. The master bedroom suite has a bathroom and dressing area. Two of the bedrooms have the useful configuration of a shared bathroom accessed directly from both rooms.
The house is approached through a pillared entrance and gravel drive. There is a substantial barn with a 2-bay car port with large workshop for the enthusiast, above which is a sizeable studio, with two balconies and bathroom that could be a generous apartment for staff. There is also a single garage/store. The front and side of the garden is bordered by the bluebell woods of Blackdown Park through which runs a stream with waterfall, which forms the eastern boundary. There is a fenced balcony eating area here designed to take full advantage of this pretty natural feature. In all about 0.84 acre (0.3 ha).

Foresters is a fantastic family home - I particularly like the way it combines a sense of character whilst offering all the convenience of a contemporary property.Sophie Richardson
