About this property

  • Spring House is a most attractive Grade II* listed detached property believed to date from the late 15th/early 16th century, remodelled and partly rebuilt in the c. early 17th century with later additions, including an extensive renovation in 2010. The impressive living space is arranged over three floors, combining charming character features with modern embellishments, ideal for both family living and formal entertaining. Salient features include a bespoke kitchen, stylish bathroom suites, exposed wall, ceiling and floor timbers, leadlight windows, underfloor heating to the family/dining room, and an inglenook fireplace. Also of note are the attractive and established gardens and grounds, which amount to about 1.63 acres in total.

    The spacious, triple aspect sitting room has a charming inglenook fireplace inset with a wood burning stove and provides a superb reception area.

    The impressive family/dining room has attractive views to the garden and French doors at either end opening to the rear terrace.

    A playroom/snug has built-in storage and a view to the garden.

    The bespoke, hand-crafted kitchen by Christopher Peters is well-equipped with a comprehensive range of wall units with integral appliances including a four oven Aga. There is a central island incorporating a breakfast bar and combination microwave oven.

    An adjoining utility room provides further storage and space for appliances.

    There is a double aspect study, and a cloakroom and useful boot room complete the ground floor.

    Arranged over the first floor is the impressive principal suite with a stylish en suite shower room and adjoining dressing room with built-in wardrobes. There is an independent staircase rising from the utility room, providing annexe/guest suite potential.

    There are two further double bedrooms, one with a built-in storage cupboard, and both with attractive views over the gardens.

    A well-appointed family bathroom completes the first floor.

    Arranged over the second floor and completing the accommodation is a spacious bedroom.

    Spring House is approached via a tree lined driveway with a pond to one side, culminating in a turning circle with a majestic tree under planted with spring bulbs, and providing access to the garage and ample off-road parking. A brick edged pathway flanked by lawn and shrubs leads to the front door.

    A picket fence separates the side and rear garden, comprising a south facing landscaped lawn interspersed with a variety of established deciduous trees with areas of beech hedging under planted with well-stocked beds. Steps rise to a paved terrace which spans the rear of the property, ideal for al fresco entertaining, and adjoins a charming rose knot garden. To the perimeter is another pond, and the garden enjoys far reaching views over the surrounding farmland. A small paddock runs adjacent to the drive.
