The kitchen/breakfast room to the rear has been designed by Martin Moore, fitted with contemporary style cabinetry, a central island, a four oven AGA and a walk in larder. The breakfast area is in open plan arrangement with the kitchen and enjoys attractive southerly garden views.
The downstairs comprises of five reception rooms including a beamed drawing room, garden room, family room, games room and study. All reception rooms boast views across the delightful mature gardens. To the first floor, the impressive principal bedroom with generous en suite bathroom and French doors opening to a balcony. There are seven further bedrooms set over the first and second floors along with three bath/shower rooms and a versatile family room.
An annexe could be used as a home office, gym or additional accommodation.
The property is approached by a long private drive leading to a detached three bay garage/workshop. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, designed to be low maintenance and are framed by a collection of mature trees, shrubs and hedging. The terrace extends along the width of the property overlooking the garden and views beyond. There is a paddock with stable block and tack room. The surrounding private woodland, a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs ensure year round colour as well as a privacy and seclusion.
