About this property

  • The house is of great character with a Georgian core and external brick and flint facade under Dutch black glazed pantiles to the front. There is a more recent rear extension constructed of brick and rendered under Welsh slate tiles. Extensively remodelled and extended by Purcell, Miller & Tritton Architects in 1998. Full internal insulation solar panels and triple phase electrics make for a 21st century house within an 18th century structure.

    Internally the property has wonderful original features such as an ornate porch, well proportioned rooms, open fireplaces, exposed beams and barley twist chimneys. The accommodation is arranged over two floors with the principal reception rooms and bedrooms being of generous proportions. The reception hall is a delightfully light and bright room with an oak floor, open fireplace with marble surround and double doors that lead through to an inner hall. The reception hall also leads through to the dining room, which is a charming room with dual aspect. The double drawing room has dual aspect and a Jet master with marble surround. Also off the inner hall are the cloakroom and kitchen. The open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room is spacious, light and airy designed by Andrew Bannister. The room is extensive with an oak floor, base and wall mounted units under a granite worktop as well as a large peninsular unit with storage below. On the opposite side of the kitchen there is a granite worktop, with dishwasher and fridge built in under, a double oven with rotisserie cooker and gas hob. The family area has doors out on to the terrace, which is perfect for al fresco dining. The utility, extensive cellar with wine bins and a vault, boot room and study/bedroom 6, lie beyond the kitchen. On the first floor the principal bedroom benefits from built in cupboards, a dressing room, an en suite bathroom and delightful views of the surrounding countryside. There are a further four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Four of the bedrooms have in built wardrobes. All bathrooms fixtures and fittings are by Goodwood Bathrooms with fittings by Lefroy Brooks. Loft is easily accessible with good storage space.

    The house is approached through five bar electric gates both on entry and exit, over a gravel drive with a turning sweep in front of the house. The house sits well within its plot with the delightful gardens and grounds surrounding it on all sides, with the majority of the garden mainly laid to lawn surrounded by open countryside on all sides. The well established trees and Yew hedges give the property a high degree of privacy and seclusion. In addition a terrace lies to the west of the house with established flower beds and borders throughout the gardens including roses and lavender bushes. There are also espalier fruit trees and two useful outbuildings. There is also a south facing terrace covered in a beautiful wisteria.

    Agents Note: Potential to build a double garage with flat above on the west side of property. Gravel and hardcore already installed. As is mains electricity. Subject to the necessary approvals being obtained.
