About this property

  • Believed to date back to 1812, Aish House is a wonderful, Grade II listed period home, with many charming features. In 2002 a considerable restoration program began, reverting the house back into one elegant residence from a number of apartments. As a result, Aish House now offers superb accommodation designed with family living in mind, yet still retains all the period charm and features, you would hope to see in a house of this style. The finished result is simply exquisite.

    The front door leads through to a wonderful spacious and decadent entrance hall, with a further five reception rooms on the ground floor, three of which face south with glazed doors to the terrace. The dining room, drawing room and study have open fireplaces and there is a large inglenook and wood burning stove in the sitting room. The wow factor could be attribute to any number of the principle rooms within the house, however the kitchen/breakfast room is possibly the jewel in the crown. This wonderful kitchen has been extended to provide a fabulous sitting area with bi fold doors to the terrace, making the most of the fabulous views over the grounds and surrounding countryside. The kitchen is integrated with a number of appliances and there is also an electric Aga, central island unit, a larder and underfloor heating. In addition is a large utility room and cloakroom.

    There is a beautiful galleried landing on the first floor, along with the master bedroom suite and four further bedrooms, all of which offer en suite bath or shower rooms. An external staircase provides access to the first floor apartment which comprises a kitchen/dining room, sitting room, bedroom and bathroom.

    Through the gated pillared entrance, the drive sweeps round to the front of the house, providing parking and turning. Situated near the entrance is a double garage with further potential, subject to the necessary planning consents. Situated to the east of the house is a beautiful walled garden, with bee boles at the far end and a number of established flowers and shrubs. There is a fabulous south facing terrace adjoining the kitchen and a number of the reception rooms, perfect for entertaining and taking full advantage of the view. Established and beautifully maintained gardens surround the house, together with a kitchen garden, paddock and orchard. In total, the grounds extend to just shy of 6 acres.
