About this property

  • A sophisticated, welcoming house, designed in the style of a traditional English country residence.

    The house is approached via a gated 200 metre private drive which has been sympathetically landscaped and is secured by a further set of oak gates, which open to the large driveway and courtyard offering ample parking.

    Warm red brick elevations with elegant bay windows are off set with natural stone work and the house is capped by clay roof tiles. It is very rare to find a property so close to London with such a large garden.

    The accommodation flows naturally between informal and formal entertaining areas and is perfectly arranged to suit modern family living.

    From the light, airy reception hall to the sumptuous master suite, every detail has been exquisitely considered. The generously proportioned rooms are complemented by full height doors, plaster cornicing's, tall skirting boards and detailed door and window architraves.

    The reception hall is light and bright with natural light from the roof lantern and views through to the rear garden. Porcelain floor tiles complement the walnut handrail of the hand-built sweeping staircase.

    To the right of the hallway the ambulatory leads to the coats cupboard, panelled cloakroom and large study with a door leading out to a western facing terrace. The grand split-level drawing room has a limestone fireplace and access out to the south terrace. The panelled dining room opens onto the south terrace and is ideal for entertaining as it interconnects with the drawing room.

    The large kitchen area is carefully designed to divide into separate living areas offering plenty of space for informal entertaining and relaxing. The fully fitted kitchen has modern integrated appliances and accesses the utility room, which also has a further cloakroom and shower/wet room. The family area has a limestone fireplace and doors leading out to the south terrace and gardens.

    There is a breakfast/informal dining area with doors to the eastern terrace and the glazed morning room enjoys access to and views across the rear gardens. There is also access to an additional reception room which leads down to a conservatory, a useful space for a games room or teenager space.

    The bespoke staircase leads to a light, galleried landing. The principle bedroom enjoys views across the rear gardens and has a luxurious en suite shower room with adjoining dressing room, plus a further en suite showe, steam room and dressing room. The guest room has lovely views over the rear garden and has an en suite bathroom and dressing room. There are four more generous bedrooms all with en suite shower rooms.

    This floor enjoys an abundance of natural light with roof lanterns. The glass walled gymnasium is spacious and there is also a changing room with a shower/steam room. The games/media room is pre-wired for multiple uses, subject to personal requirements.

    On the lower ground floor is the impressive indoor pool and leisure complex.

    A stone terrace surrounds the house and is accessed from all of the principal reception rooms, affording al fresco entertaining and dining. Mature planting ensures the house is secluded but enjoys views across the landscaped gardens and parkland.

    To the rear of the house is a gently rolling lawn with a southerly aspect which opens out to grass parkland and a woodland copse which adjoins the golf course.

    There is a self contained apartment which has its own entrance door and staircase. There is a generous bed/sitting room, kitchen and en suite shower room.

    Please note the property is available unfurnished, the furniture seen in the photographs has been added using CGI.
