    About this property

    • In addition to the accommodation in the main four-bedroom house – which also includes a self-contained one-bedroom apartment – there are two apartments above the garage block, a huge indoor pool complex, a games room, several bars, a putting green and extensive grounds.

      With security and privacy in mind, the property has two gated entrances to sweeping driveways that skirt around manicured lawns edged by mature trees and shrubs. There is plenty of parking within a large courtyard at the rear of the property as well as garaging for four cars.

      The imposing, five-bay Georgian period house was built in 1822 by Philippe Le Feuvre whose initials were inscribed on a stone on the east side of the house. Its architecture is notably symmetrical with balanced chimneys and small single-storey wings either side. It also has exposed quoins, a stucco façade flush with the granite shuttered windows and an elaborate central porch, supported on fluted columns.

      A glazed walkway links the main kitchen to a fully fitted indoor bar area and games room, which is currently used as an additional sitting room.

      An adjoining courtyard provides a great outdoor entertaining space with a barbecue and bar area, and it is a wonderful suntrap in summer.

      The luxurious pool complex has a beautiful wood ceiling and attractive tiled areas with space for loungers and other furnishings.

      As well as housing a large pool, this complex provides a Jacuzzi, a hot tub, his and hers changing rooms with shower and toilet facilities and a bar area with everything in place including fridges, icemakers and a sink with hot and cold water. There is also a tea- and coffee-making station in the lobby. The water in the pool is maintained without the use of chemicals and there is automatic heating and ventilation to ensure a comfortable environment within the building.

      The house has been designed to meet the needs of modern living while retaining its period character and many original features. These include marble fireplaces, wood panelling, high ceilings and ornate plaster detail such as ceiling roses, decorated cornices and wall niches. There is eye-catching leaded detail of flowers and birds on the glazing to the front door and the back door also has an elaborate fanlight.

      The kitchen has plenty of space for an extra-large family dining table, while dinner parties and other gatherings can be enjoyed in the formal dining room. This has windows on one side overlooking the garden and a door on the other side to the rear courtyard.

      For laundry, there is a separate utility room complete with two Bosch washing machines and two driers. This part of the house connects with a sunroom that provides a covered walkway to the pool complex.

      The ground floor also provides a reception room next to the kitchen, which could be used as a cosy TV snug, and a 35-foot-long drawing room. This has an attractive archway, panelling, wood flooring and a marble fireplace which has been fitted with a living-flame fire. Either side of the fireplace, there are alcoves with built-in cupboards and illuminated display shelves. The room has French doors to the inner courtyard and an ornately carved door to a traditionally designed study with customised furnishings

      The garage block at the rear of the house incorporates two double garages, storerooms, the games room and an entrance door to the one- and two-bedroom apartments above it.

    Superb Georgian property with so much character and charm throughout.
