About this property

  • St Andrews Court is an impressive house extending to approximately 6,690 sq ft. In recent years various improvement works have been carried out, extending the family living space and connecting the house seamlessly with the gardens.

    The property offers carefully maintained accommodation over three floors and is set in extensive gardens and grounds, set well back from the lane and approached via a straight gravel drive. St Andrews Court offers an exceptional package including a fully equipped detached annexe in addition to a very well-appointed stable block.

    The gravel drive passes the paddocks and stable block and leads through a set of wrought iron gates to parking and turning areas at the front and rear of the house.

    Oak double front doors open into a large enclosed porch and a further pair of doors open into a reception hall with a dramatic sweeping staircase leading to a galleried landing.

    The house offers a delightful blend of the contemporary and more traditional, with a large dining room and drawing room flanking the hall. The drawing room is of particular note with exposed brick walls and a brick fireplace with a log burner set between bi-fold doors opening onto a paved garden terrace.

    The kitchen is very much at the heart of the house and incorporates a significant extension providing sitting and dining space and bi-fold doors giving a perfect link to the garden. The working end of the kitchen provides excellent storage solutions with base and wall units, good quality fitted appliances including a bank of eye level ovens all set around a large island unit with a gas hob and breakfast bar.

    Off the kitchen is a utility room and a door into an area which would lend itself into being used as a self-contained ground floor annexe. The current arrangement is for a bedroom, sitting room and shower room and back stairs to the first floor.

    In one wing is an outstanding principal bedroom suite with extensive wardrobe space, stairs up to a large second floor dressing room and an en suite bathroom, together with a second en suite bedroom.

    A further two bedrooms create a link with the other wing providing a second impressive suite, the bedroom for which is currently used as a sitting room. Bi-fold doors open onto a garden terrace and there are two further bathrooms at this end of the building.

    The second floor includes two offices, a WC, a games room and the dressing room previously mentioned.

    Annexe

    The annexe provides excellent, versatile space and incorporates a large living room, a kitchen, shower room and sitting room/study on the ground floor and two bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor.

    Garage

    A detached double garage with electric roller doors.

    Stable block

    With three loose boxes, a workshop, grooms room, shower room and a stable yard.

    Gardens, grounds and paddocks

    The gardens are a wonderful feature of the property with a centre piece of a pretty ornamental pond, terracing, well-maintained lawns and a variety of mature trees and shrubs.

    Beyond are three paddocks, each with their own water supply and bounded by hedgerow and post and rail fencing.
