About this property

  • Carters Corner Place is a magnificently elegant Grade II Listed country house, which has been sympathetically divided into three. 2 Carters Corner Place is the central unit, which is accessed via the beautiful stone and cobble private courtyard and encompasses the impressive central stone doorway with inscription above. The property is steeped in history and features a plethora of period details, such as wooden panelling, stone and mullion windows and characterful fireplaces. The reception rooms are all elegantly proportioned. The entrance hall doubles up as a music room and leads through to the delightful drawing room with dining area, which has a particularly impressive fireplace and views over the walled garden. The layout of the ground floor works as well for families as it does for entertaining on account of the connectivity between the rooms and the direct access into the exclusively owned walled garden to the rear.

    The panelled staircase, with working bell pull, leads up to the first floor landing. The principal suite occupies one end of the first floor and encompasses a bathroom and dressing room area. There are 4 further bedrooms, a family bathroom and an additional shower room. The attic room above the second floor provides an ideal area for a children's den or over flow accommodation.

    2 Carters Corner Place benefits from exclusive ownership of the, south west facing walled garden of the manor house, thought to date from 1653 as evidenced by an inscription in the wall. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a stone path around and features some beautiful, mature trees, an orchard with 4 apple trees and a Mulberry tree, a petanque court and deep flower beds, typical of an English country garden. There is a private courtyard in front of the entrance to 2 Carters Corner Place and a garage.
