    About this property


      Gayton House is constructed on the site of two earlier properties, numbers 44 and 46 Well Lane. It is a magnificent house with the elegant proportions of the Georgian period and excellent family accommodation arranged over three floors.

      It has an impressive double-fronted façade beneath a slate hipped roof and occupies a position well back from the lane providing space for a sweeping drive. To one side is a substantial garage block with a workshop area and a flat/home office above.

      The property has been designed to an exacting standard and has the hallmarks of a premium quality build. It is in unfinished condition providing buyers with the opportunity of completing the project in their own style, tailoring it to their own specific requirements.

      The front door opens into a reception hall serving the various reception rooms. The superb open plan kitchen enjoys an outlook over the gardens and is fitted with a high quality kitchen with an island and various integrated Gaggenau appliances.

      Access to the first floor is via a temporary staircase and there is a series of bedrooms suites over the first and second floors with the bathrooms requiring fitting.

      The garage block is of similar construction to the house and has three open bays to the front elevation providing garaging and storage. At the side is access to a ground floor room with an internal staircase leading to rooms above offering flexible space for a home office, a flat or leisure space.

      The gardens and grounds extend to all sides of the house and are bounded in part by an attractive high sandstone wall. There is a tennis court to one side and to the other a former outbuilding which may offer potential as a pool house or outside kitchen.

      The site extends to about 2 acres.

      Title convenants apply, please contact our office for more details.

    This is a very exciting opportunity for buyers to acquire a spectacular property, on which they can add the final touches.
