A fine, extended Georgian home with established gardens and grounds extending to about four acres with a stunning lake, wild flower meadows and heated swimming pool
Selgars House sits proudly in a beautiful position over looking its wonderful gardens and grounds. With its Georgian architecture, the striking façade is inviting and sets the tone throughout. Inside, the reception hallway is perfect for welcoming guests and is clearly the heart of the home. There are two formal reception rooms to either side, both benefiting from fine proportions, tall ceilings and a pretty outlook over the front garden, the sitting room also enjoys a working feature fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room offers a great space for family life with ample space for a kitchen table, the kitchen itself has a wide range of wall, base and drawer units with integrated appliances. Adjacent to the kitchen is the snug which is in the 17th century part of Selgars House, there is a wealth of character including exposed beams, exposed brickwork and an impressive fireplace. There is also a back staircase from the snug leading to the first floor. Further accommodation on the ground floor includes a useful boot room which has doors leading outside, a pantry and utility room.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms (one en suite), family bathroom and WC. Bedroom one is of particular interest with an en suite bathroom, dressing room (can be used as fifth bedroom) and views over the front garden. While bedroom two has wonderful views over the neighbouring mill pond.
Outside, the grounds are magical and a particular feature to the property with many different areas within the four acres. Nearest the house is the formal gardens with a level lawn area and an array of mature shrubs, plants and trees. Pretty paths lead through the established borders and over the stream to the simply stunning lake which has an abundance of wildlife. Next to the barn is a terraced seating area looking out to the lake and countryside beyond.
To the south, there is a wonderful, part walled garden with outdoor swimming pool and terrace, perfect for entertaining or alfresco dining. Further areas within the grounds include a kitchen garden, wild flower meadows with pretty paths meandering through to an orchard and further level lawn area.
