    About this property

    • Smannell House is a truly exceptional property. Although constructed only eight years ago, it is traditional in its design and boasts wonderfully light, well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings and an overriding feeling of space throughout. All thought has been given to satisfying every modern day living requirement with expansive accommodation flowing seamlessly from one room to the next, the ideal house for entertaining. The drawing room is supremely elegant and features a gas fireplace as a focal point whilst light floods in from six windows. In addition to a family room and dining room, the kitchen/breakfast room is 32 ft in length and boasts a stylish fitted kitchen with central island and ample relaxation and dining space. There are three sets bifold doors out to the elevated terrace. A walkway leads beyond to a spacious study/games room, again with bifold doors on each side of the room and with a staircase leading up to a studio room/bedroom above. These rooms combined could be used for semi-independent overflow accommodation if desired. The principal bedroom is dual aspect and benefits from an adjoining dressing room and well appointed bathroom, whilst the guest room also has an en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms which and a family bathroom.

      Outside

      Hidden behind mature hedging and shrubbery, Smannell House is gated with a driveway leading to a sizeable parking area where there is also a double garage/workshop and open bay parking space. The mature gardens to the front are a pure delight and generously extend around the sides of the house to the rear garden.
      Mainly laid to lawn, the rear garden again boasts a wide variety of mature shrubs and trees, with a most attractive summerhouse which could serve as a home office away from the house. The summerhouse is the perfect place to sit and relax and enjoy the vista beyond the garden to the adjoining fields.
