About this property

  • A handsome Grade II listed family home, believed to be Georgian in origin and once a village public house, which boasts beautiful brick and flint elevations, full height sash windows and original features throughout. The property has undergone an extensive program of redevelopment and improvement by the current owners to offer exceptionally well presented accommodation with an elegance in finish complimenting a fine attention to detail throughout.

    The house is arranged around a traditional reception hall running centrally through the house to meet the original staircase and providing access to the formal receptions. Positioned either side of the hallway, the first two receptions are currently used as a snug/t.v. room and formal dining room. There is access beneath the t.v. room to a handy cellar. Overlooking the gardens is an elegant formal drawing room enjoying superb views over the South facing garden, with a traditional dual aspect design and feature stone fireplace with open hearth.

    To the rear of the house is an extended and remodelled kitchen/breakfast room. This beautifully proportioned and informal family space includes a bespoke Martin Moore kitchen and is ideal for modern living. A further utility room is accessed from here.

    The bedroom accommodation is adaptable with the principal bedroom suite including a luxury en suite bath & shower room. There are four further generous bedrooms, all enjoying wonderful views, and a further nursery/dressing room. These rooms are served by a remodelled family bath and shower room.

    A real feature of the property is its glorious position and beautifully landscaped gardens & grounds approaching 1 acre. Traditionally designed courtyard style landscaping wrapping around the house includes tiered patios bordered and interspersed with box hedge rows and well stocked specimen beds, a raised flagstone pond and attractive brick built retaining walls with steps leading down to a large two-part gravel driveway providing ample parking. The lawns themselves are extensive and enjoy a gentle tiered effect subtly dividing the two areas.

    Within the gardens is a large outbuilding currently used as a workshop with separate gym and with potential to create ancillary accommodation, a games room or similar. There is a further brick and flint stable block with store and a greenhouse also located within the gardens.
