    About this property

    • Award-winning architects have designed an innovative, six bedroom home: large-scale living spaces flood with sunlight through wall-wide windows and open onto balconies and Indian sandstone terraces all round.

      The grounds offer every opportunity for recreation: choose south-facing sunning or a range of sports on site; wander wooded walkways or hold gatherings in the Field overlooking the lake.

      The giant Reception Hall features Jerusalem stone flooring, an open hearth and a chimney that stretches up to the sixteen feet high ceiling.

      The impressive Sitting Room offers floor-to-ceiling views of the ever-changing lake and its innovative floating walls slide back for a total of 900 sq.ft. of party space. The Sitting Room flows into the Dining Room from which doors open onto a sheltered terrace.

      The huge, high-ceilinged family sitting and dining areas are collected around an open plan kitchen. This over-sized, flexible space can be arranged for large-scale gatherings which can spill outside through doors to the south, east and west.

      The large and versatile Music / Garden Room enjoys double-door access onto its very own terrace and the West lawn. This space has been designed for options: it has its own washroom facilities and could be used for those seeking ground-floor independent living.

      The Library includes hand-crafted oak shelves and a large screen for home cinema.

      There is no better place on earth to work from home! With floor-to-ceiling windows to the south and east, the Office offers light and inspirational views. With 20 yards of stylish shelving, its own entrance and an Archive Room, this space makes an ideal base for one, two or three people.

      The principal suite features a dressing area, stone-tiled bathroom with wet-room shower, a sitting area with its own balcony, and a 14 feet ceiling.

      Two further double bedrooms enjoy ensuite facilities.

      Three more double bedrooms each face the Water with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors onto a large balcony. These rooms share a family bathroom with bath and shower.
