A handsome and rare country estate in a rural spot so close to London.
Accessed via a gated entrance and located at the end of the long sweeping tree-lined drive with its extensive gravelled parking and turning area to the front, Quornden is an handsome Georgian style country house dating back to the early 20th century with the orangery having been added by the current owners who have carried out extensive works to the property.
To the ground floor Quornden benefits from light and spacious reception rooms, the principal rooms facing south east with views over the terrace and gardens beyond. To the eastern side and rear are the informal reception rooms, including the kitchen/breakfast room giving access to the triple aspect orangery which in turn gives access to the garden. Designed by Chamber, the kitchen is fitted with Gaggenau appliances and an oil fired Aga. The utility room houses a secondary oven and fridge freezer.
To the first floor is the generous principal bedroom suite with bedroom, en suite bathroom and extensive bespoke wardrobes. There are four/five further bedrooms on the first floor, three en suite, and a family shower room with steam room. Access to the roof terrace is via the bedroom to the north of the house.
The second floor is currently arranged to four bedrooms, family bathroom, store rooms and attic space
Outbuildings, Gardens and Grounds
To the south of the house and wrapping around the sides, accessed via French windows from several of the reception rooms, is the terrace providing an excellent location for alfresco entertaining with views over the formal gardens with their magnificent mature specimen trees, shrubs and woodland walks beyond the semi-circular lawn and ha-ha.
Within the walled garden can be found the sunken heated swimming pool and The Cottage which provides the changing room for the pool as well as useful one bedroom ancillary accommodation. Nearby is the gym with an attached store. Behind the eastern end of the walled garden can be found the stables, barn and further outbuildings. The tennis court with its pavilion can be found to the north of the walled garden.
Surrounding the house and immediate gardens are paddocks and woodland, opening to a large area of pasture running the length of the valley, used by the current owners as a golf practice area.
