    About this property

    • Tucked away behind walled gardens, Whistlers has been sympathetically renovated and converted to create a most stylish home. With origins believed to date to the 1800s, the property successfully combines period features with contemporary design and high tech ‘smart home' specification.

      The layout, with open plan spaces in the main reception areas, enhances the feeling of light and space. Finished to a high specification with features including solid oak windows and doors, Italian stone flooring, Carrara marble, mood lighting, surround sound system, underfloor heating and ‘Loxone' technology to many areas.

      The kitchen area has marble work surfaces, a two door gas Aga with an Aga companion comprising two electric ovens and gas hob, Amana fridge freezer and a central island with black walnut top. The stunning drawing room with vaulted ceiling and exposed A frame beams has a York stone fireplace and floor to ceiling windows and doors overlooking and opening to the south facing terrace and gardens. Beyond the drawing room is a study which also opens out to the terrace and could alternatively be used as a further bedroom depending on needs.

      A beautifully crafted oak staircase appears to float as it rises. The principal bedroom with oak floors is split level and overlooks the garden. The integral feature beams creatively divide the room from the dressing area and bathroom beyond.

      The guest bedroom, also with oak floors has fitted cupboards and en suite bathroom. On the ground floor there is also a cloakroom with shower and a utility/laundry room.

      From the hall, wide steps lead down to the west wing offering fabulous versatile accommodation. A sitting room with wood burner has a small kitchen area and could alternatively be used as a dining/party room. With two further bedrooms and bathroom beyond the west wing has a separate entrance so offers scope to be used as an annexe for visiting friends and relatives or as self-contained accommodation if desired.

      Outside, Whistlers is entered through solid timber electric gates to a gravel parking area. An archway opens to the west rose garden with topiary box and yew and a 60 year old standard lilac wisteria. In the main garden, steps from the terrace lead past lavender beds to the lawns and well stocked, established herbaceous borders. A wrought iron gate leads to the woodland garden which has a path to a substantial timber garden store and gravel gated off road parking accessed from Rectory Lane entrance.
