About this property

  • Maresfield was built in 2013 to an exacting specification by the current owners. Characterised by light and spacious rooms, high ceilings and multiple large windows, it is both impressive and welcoming. The option to enclose or to open up the main reception rooms lends the house perfectly to entertaining, while the smaller rooms such as the gym, the study and the television room are ideal for everyday life. Features such as American white oak doors, Nordan windows, walnut style bathroom cabinetry and cornicing even in the bathrooms are testament to the attention to detail that has gone into every part of this house.

    A pillared entrance portico frames double oak front doors which open to the vestibule and then into the reception hall. Directly ahead, the garden room is a bright and versatile sitting room which connects to the garden via three sets of glazed doors. Plantation shutters partially screen the garden room from the hall. Similarly the dining room has three sets of French windows opening to a west facing terrace and plantation shutters partially separate the dining the room from the hall. The sitting room is lit by a square bay window and has space for large furniture. The open plan kitchen has generous space for dining and comfortable seating next to a series of glazed doors opening to the terrace. The superbly equipped kitchen is fitted with contemporary cream units by Vidico and has a large island unit as well as a range of Siemens appliances which include a coffee machine, induction hob and wall mounted ovens. Behind the kitchen is a utility room with excellent storage, a WC and a back door. In addition to the main reception rooms, Maresfield has a cosy television room, a gym and a study.

    The bedrooms are at the east end of the house. All have en suite facilities and built in storage, headboards and side tables. The master bedroom suite is supremely comfortable with a large square bay window and two generous walk-in dressing rooms fitted with bespoke, well lit storage units. The luxurious master bathroom has a freestanding oval bath and a double walk-in shower with oversized rainfall shower head. Two wash basins are set into walnut style cabinetry. Three further double bedrooms have built in storage and beautifully designed en suite shower rooms with bespoke bathroom cabinetry.

    The triple garage has remote controlled doors, heating, insulation, light, power and water.

    Garage Apartment
    At the west end of the garage is a storage / utility area and a staircase to an apartment on the first floor. The apartment consists of an open plan living room with kitchen, a shower room and bedroom.

    Maresfield is set in about an acre of landscaped garden. Electric gates open to a smart block paved parking area edged by neat lawn. On the south side of the house is a terrace with glass and steel balustrading enclosing a sheltered and sunny spot to sit out or entertain in the summer. Below the terrace, the ground falls away in neat terraces edged with box hedge and planted with shrubs that provide year round colour.

    Maresfield will be sold with a paddock of about 2 acres which would be ideal for buyers with animals. With an equestrian centre next door, the area is well suited to horse owners.

Maresfield House is immaculately finished and incredibly well presented, with an interior designed very much in the style of a luxury hotel. From the gated entrance to the striking bathrooms, every inch of this property looks the part.
