    About this property

    • Butlers was built in 1904 and is constructed of brick under a tiled roof, the elevations being enhanced by hung tiles. There is spacious accommodation with the principal rooms facing south west and looking out over the garden. The drawing room benefits from oak panelling to two thirds height with fitted book shelving along part of one wall with cupboards below, off which is a room housing the entertainment system and a wine store. In the sitting room there is a deep bay window with a wide leaded window overlooking the garden and a fireplace with an inset wood burner set in an arch recess with a timber surround. Of particular note is the well fitted Mark Wilkinson kitchen/breakfast room/family room, well fitted with a central island unit and integral appliances and in-built entertainment system, opening out onto the formal garden and courtyard. On the first floor there is a master bedroom with en suite bathroom and dressing room, with 4 further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and a second bathroom.

      Gardens & Grounds
      Electric and timber gates supported on brick pillars give access to a sweeping gravel drive with a turning area to the front of the house with well stocked herbaceous and shrub borders. A fork off the main drive, through double five bar gates, leads to the side of the house and stable yard around which are the principal outbuildings which include a two storey coach house, constructed of brick with hanging tiles under a tiled roof to match the house. On the ground floor there are stables and adjacent is the wood store, a further room currently used as a gym and the boiler room for the flat. To the side of the stables, with an external access, are stairs leading up to the first floor and to the self-contained flat/annexe with accommodation comprising a bedroom and en suite shower room, kitchen/breakfast room and sitting room. The annexe is also accessible from the main house.

      The principal gardens are laid to lawn to the south of the house. The extensive lawns are arranged with shaped herbaceous borders, trees and shrubberies. Adjacent to the house and accessible from the family room is a delightful low maintenance formal garden with gravel paths between beds of shrubs, an ornamental pond with a central fountain surrounded by box hedging, ornamental trees and a wisteria covered arbour. Set behind a high yew hedge is the kitchen garden with raised vegetable beds and a greenhouse surrounded on two sides by a high red brick wall which extends the full length of the garden along the eastern boundary. A rose clad arch leads through to the heated swimming pool with paved surround, two “beach huts” with a changing room, wc and shower, a barbeque area and large pool room with fitted kitchen providing an ideal entertainment area. Archways in the brick wall lead through to the orchard.

    For me this location is perfect; surrounded by open countryside yet close to rail and road networks.
