    About this property

    • Little Chantersluer is a very fine and beautifully presented period property of what is thought to be 14th century origins which has been extensive refurbished. The overall accommodation is both flexible and well-proportioned and as you would expect of a property of this age it also retains many fine original features.

      Downstairs the accommodation consists of an entrance lobby, family room, snug with low level bay window looking over the front lawn, study, further room with open fire place (used as a sixth bedroom by the current owners), drawing room with inglenook fireplace, a magnificent Smallbone kitchen and breakfast room with AGA, utility room, boot room and cloakroom.

      Upstairs there are five bedrooms that all enjoy lovely views out over the surrounding gardens and countryside beyond, a family bathroom and a shower/wet room.

      The separate self-contained one bedroom cottage is well-proportioned underfloor heated accommodation consisting of sitting/dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, bathroom and bedroom. The cottage, with its own private patio area, would provide ancillary accommodation for guests, live in staff or family members.

      THE BARN
      The magnificent four bay timber barn that we believe dates from the 17th century, has been sensitively refurbished to provide a stunning entertaining/living space with underfloor heating. It comprises a gallery, main barn space with cellar, plus kitchen, shower room, changing area and cloakroom.

      Set well back from Smalls Hill Road down a long private driveway, Little Chantersluer is approached via a tarmac shingle drive that terminates in a large turning circle to the front of the triple garage block and barn. A picket gate leads visitors down across the main lawn past the cottage to the front door of the main house.

      The surrounding gardens and grounds, with several large mature trees, have been beautifully maintained over the years and provide large expanses of lawn and well-stocked borders and beds that offer an all-round succession of blooms. There is a pond and a wild meadow to the south of the main house.

      In addition there is an all-weather tennis court, air-source heated swimming pool, pool house with WC and plenty of space around the pool for entertaining. There is a further patio for outdoor entertaining nestled to the rear of the house with views to the mature holm evergreen oak with tree house.
      Please note the estate has private drainage.

    I adore this house, its everything I love about our country houses its got its own barn, annexe, swimming pool and tennis court all in a fantastic country setting.
