    About this property

    • Beech Lawn is a most impressive and beautifully restored Grade II listed country house, of not only great historical interest but also architectural importance. In recent years the house has been significantly renovated and refurbished having new services installed and various leisure facilities added. It is now a private family home of exceptional quality ideal for home working, family living and entertaining in equal measure. The home also benefits from the most exquisite country grounds with far reaching views.

      The interiors present beautiful original features including a striking turn staircase, decorative 18th Century and 19th Century coving and fine fireplaces, which are most evident in the beautiful drawing room and dining/games room. The kitchen a more modern affair, hand built by Jeremy Wood of Wetherby finished with a two oven Aga, Miele appliances and double Fisher and Paykel fridge freezers, and large porcelain floor tiles with underfloor heating. Completing the ground floor are the family room, study, conservatory, currently doubling as a gym and garden room, providing a super vantage point from which to enjoy the walled gardens in the morning sun. There is access to the cellar which could potentially be made into a wine cellar.

      Leading to the first floor via either of the staircases, you are greeted by five magnificent, spacious bedrooms, including the principal bedroom featuring a large dressing room and luxurious en suite bathroom with underfloor heating and air conditioning. One of the bedrooms has an adjoining snug perfect for teenagers and another is currently used as a cinema. The second bedroom has a superb en suite bathroom and the house bathroom benefits from a shower which doubles as a steam room. On the second floor there are two further rooms which could create a further bedroom and snug or office space.

      The house is approached across Heath Common and through an electric timber sliding gate which leads to a block paved parking area adjacent to the garaging. The driveway leads through a gate to the stable yard with five loose boxes a flood light ménage and paddocks extending to about three and a half acres, although there is a separate access and parking area making it ideal for livery. On the opposite side of the house and cottage is a very inviting and very private walled garden, laid principally to lawn but with well stocked boarders and several paved terraces designed to catch the sun throughout the day. There is a further lawned garden to the front of the house, dissected by a gravel driveway providing additional access to the walled garden, with several colorful beds bound by box hedging, bordered by a beech hedge and ha ha.
