The spacious accommodation provides versatile living for both formal and family entertaining and amounts to over 9,700 sq ft arranged over three floors. Planning exists to create a superb vaulted principal suite on the second floor which has yet to be completed. The grounds provide a high degree of privacy with a swimming pool and tennis court.

    The principal reception rooms comprise a generous drawing room with an attractive marble fireplace and an outlook over the rear garden with an adjoining garden room having double doors opening on to the rear terrace. The elegant dining room has an outlook to the rear and some concealed storage cupboards housing a drinks cupboard with space for wine fridge. The sitting room is a stylish room with a bay window to the front and a recess for a wall mounted television.

    There is a study which is fitted with a range of bookshelves and a desk, and has an attractive spiral staircase rising to the library on the first floor.

    The striking and contemporary kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base cupboards with matching island units and integral appliances. There is an adjoining walk-in larder and access to the boiler room and well-appointed utility room.

    There is an office and a rear lobby with access to the garaging, a storage room and second cloakroom.

    The guest bedroom has a well-appointed en suite bathroom located on the ground floor with access to both the main house and outside. This suite may serve well as nanny or au pair accommodation.

    From the library is a fitted ladder rising to the second floor where a large store room is located together with the impressive vaulted bedroom. This bedroom is yet to be completed therefore a buyer can finish it to suit their own individual requirements.

    The house is approached through a brick pillared gated entrance over a gravel drive which leads to the parking area and triple garage. The garage has three electric up and over doors and a store room to the rear.

    The landscaped gardens, as a whole, are established with wide swathes of lawn interspersed with trees and established shrub beds.

The perimeter is planted with an established laurel hedge and there are mature rhododendrons and azalea beds, a silver birch and spruce. The whole area provides a high degree of privacy and seclusion.
