A prime country house with established gardens and a paddock.
Mulberry house is a beautifully appointed and bespoke family home, standing amongst established gardens and on an elevated escarpment. Constructed from aged brick and rendered elevations under a slate tiled roof, there are aluminium powder coated double glazed windows throughout, underfloor heating and highly specified fittings. The footprint for the home is extremely versatile with potential for a self-contained annex for a dependant relative, income or indeed multi-generational living. The plot is extensive and extends to 1.95 acres and includes a paddock with stables, there are beautifully landscaped formal gardens and a large ornamental pond. Additional outbuildings include an open fronted barn with a garage and store adjacent, in addition to a greenhouse to serve the kitchen garden.
Mulberry house extends to approximately 5074 square feet with a generous reception hall, the central axis. There is a galleried landing above with wonderful solar gain from the dual aspect and A frame windows. A limestone floor extends through from the hall to the kitchen breakfast room and on again to the rear of the dining room and utility. There are three principal rooms and the sitting room and dining room are both dual aspect with opening doors to terraces to front and rear. For the former there is a feature fireplace as the focal point which includes an inset wood burning stove and there are ceiling speakers with an integrated Sonos system. The family room is adaptable and can be separated for an independent annexe, there are extensive windows and doors and a Jotul wood burning stove. The kitchen/breakfast room is undoubtedly the core of the home, a wonderful social space with a lantern light and double doors which open on to the rear sun terrace which is ideal for alfresco dining. The kitchen has been ergonomically designed by Neptune with marble work surfaces, there are various integrated appliances by Fisher and Paykel in addition to an Everhot electric oven, wine fridge and a Perrin and Rowe hot tap.
