    About this property

    • Built in the early 1940s, Eaglesfield has been significantly extended and upgraded by the current owners, and now provides a wonderful home which is ideally configured for family living. With generously proportioned and practical accommodation arranged over two floors, it provides excellent living and entertaining space. The centrepiece is the impressive kitchen/breakfast room, a lovely light room, with a central island, five door Aga, under floor heating, views over the garden, windows on three sides and a door to the garden. There is also a pantry, a useful utility room and a walk in shower. The two principal reception rooms overlook the front and are ideal for family gatherings. The main bedroom overlooks the garden to the front and has an exceptional en suite bath/shower room with garden views. It has underfloor heating, twin basins, free standing bath and walk in shower. There are three further bedrooms, together with a bathroom and two shower rooms.

      The house occupies an enviable setting in mature gardens, and is set apart from other properties, approached off its own drive into a large gravelled turning circle. The gardens are a major feature of the house, and are principally laid to lawn with well stocked borders and a number of fine mature trees. On one side of the garden, paths have been created that wind through different areas of planting. At the rear of the garden is an area of woodland with a number of mature trees, including oak and chestnut. There are a number of outbuildings to the side of the house.
