    About this property

    • Dating from circa 1700, this Grade I Listed property is one of three houses that adjoins the main mansion house to its east, accessed from within its Cour d'Honneur. Steeped in history, Burley on the Hill has important cricketing connections with England and Lords, among many other notable historical events.

      With delightful east facing private gardens with a southerly aspect, generous parking and a triple garage, the property also benefits from the communal use of the approximately 60 acres of wider grounds, woodland and deer park at Burley on the Hill, of which the owners are all shareholders and for which there is an annual management charge.

      An attractive and well-appointed house, it occupies a stunning setting. With high ceilings, symmetrical proportions and attractive views, the house is entered by a wide stone flagged entrance hallway. Double doors access the dining room, whilst the elegant sitting room has an open fireplace and access to the beautiful, partially walled garden. The kitchen incorporates an extensive fitted suite with granite tops and island unit, double oven Aga and fitted window seat benching.

      The first floor is accessed past a half landing studio. The five bedrooms all have high ceilings and fine views. The principal and guest double bedrooms are dual-aspect, each with an en suite bath or shower room. Bedrooms three and four are doubles and, with bedroom five, share a large family bathroom.

    Elegant proportions, along with symmetry and flow sums up the accommodation within this attractive house. It is also larger than I had anticipated, dwarfed as it by the mansion house alongside. The gardens are a delight and the triple garage an important additional benefit, whilst the wider parkland, woodland and deer park offer beautiful walks.
