About this property

  • Beeches is an elegant country house sporting regency architectural features providing 6253 sq ft of accommodation. The property has been comprehensively renovated throughout with new electrical and plumbing systems, and an improved layout which provides exciting living over two floors with integral ancillary accommodation.

    On the ground floor there are a range of reception rooms including an outstanding drawing/dining room benefitting from an abundance of natural light, large wood burner and butler's pantry. In addition, there is a well-appointed study and a large sitting room which leads off the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen itself has bespoke wall and floor mounted storage units and direct access via French doors on to a beautiful covered terrace with views over the front garden and heated outdoor swimming pool. This floor also has a large utility room, a cloakroom and stairs down to a vaulted cellar. On the east side of the house there is a self-contained and well-appointed one bedroom annexe with its own access making an ideal staff/granny flat.

    On the first floor the well-proportioned and light rooms continue with six double bedrooms and four stylish bathrooms. The principal bedroom is of particular merit with an exquisite bathroom en suite, large triple aspect bedroom, bespoke fitted dressing room, all enhanced by French doors giving access to a stunning south facing balcony.

    The property is accessed through twin wrought iron gates to the drive which wraps around the property. There is a large parking area in front of the house with additional space for several vehicles to the rear.

    Of real merit, at The Beeches, is the 7.85 acres of outstanding gardens and grounds. The gardens to the front of the house are the most formal and due to their south facing orientation benefit from well-tended mature borders, lawned areas and mature trees such as Larch and Chestnut. The garden is also walled on one side giving excellent privacy and a real feeling of seclusion. The area is also home to the swimming pool which is the perfect place to spend time on a warm summer's day.

    The Orchard Flat is situated behind the main house comprising a garage, car port and workshop below and independent access at the back to the first floor apartment which includes a kitchen/dining room, sitting room, two bedrooms and bathroom.

    There is also a range of useful outbuildings adaptable to your needs, including a beautifully finished gym (which could also be an office), stabling and storage sheds.

I have always wanted to own my own vineyard and this one is just the right size for a budding vintner, sampling my own wine, in my party barn with a blazing log fire, perfect!
