About this property

  • Conford Park House dates to 1906 and was built in the Arts and Crafts style, for Sir Archibald MacDonald, Lord of the Manor of Ludshott. The property, which features the wonderful room proportions and play between light and space that is synonymous with Arts & Crafts architecture, has an extraordinary sense of volume and natural light as well as glorious views from the principal reception rooms and bedrooms over the gardens.

    Since the present owners purchased the property in 2005, they have carried out a complete refurbishment programming, which included extending the property and re-designing the layout within to create a more practical arrangement of rooms, better geared to modern day living. The house has been re-plumbed, re-wired and underfloor heating has been installed to the ground floor and principal bedroom suite. The sensational spa and leisure wing, added by the current owners, is connected to the ground floor of the property via a glass link. This spectacular extension houses the indoor swimming pool, spa, gym and leisure facilities. The floor to ceiling windows and dramatic double-height window at one end afford views over the parkland and lake. The layout of the property across the reception hall and ground floor living spaces is semi-open plan, making it as practical for a couple as it is for a larger family and great for entertaining.

    The kitchen opens out onto the garden terrace, fabulous for al fresco breakfasts and summer entertaining. The staircase and vast window that runs from ground floor to first floor ceiling, are particularly theatrical features of the house. At first floor level, the breath-taking principal suite leaves nothing to be desired. There is beautifully fitted joinery in both dressing areas and one of the bathrooms is accessed via a secret door between wardrobe spaces. All of the bedroom suites exude comfort both in terms of their design and finish.

    Conford Park Lodge is located near the second entrance gates, half way along the private drive. It is arranged over two floors and has its own private garden and a car port. Linden Cottage, which is located away from the house, between the garaging and tennis court, was built in 2016 in a complimentary style to that of the main house. It is arranged over two floors and was refurbished at the same time as the main house.

    The garage block is conveniently located close to the main house. At ground floor level it is a triple garage and at first floor level there is an office space with cloakroom. There is a further garage, or tractor shed, which has a kitchen and two office rooms, ideal for grounds staff. The carport has a store room within it. There is a boathouse on the lake.
