Superbly presented detached six bedroom family house set in a generous gardens with heated outdoor pool and a hot tub.
The Vinery is a superbly presented detached house, understood to date from the mid 1800s with later additions. It stands on the site of what was once the kitchen garden serving the Maresfield Park Estate, and retains a link to its history with the beautiful Victorian red brick garden wall on two sides.
The property has been extended over time and has been significantly improved by the current owners, with recent upgrades and improvements including a new slate roof, Parex Monocouche Rendering to the exterior, and George Barnsdale wooden double glazed windows throughout.
The result is a fine family house, which offers beautifully presented accommodation arranged over two floors. Flooring is a mix of oiled oak wood and travertine tiles, with some carpeting to the bedrooms and landing. The interiors offer spacious rooms with good ceiling heights and neutral décor. Most rooms are dual aspect, giving wonderful views across the superbly-appointed grounds.
The floorplans give an excellent overview of the property and should be used as a reference for the full extent and layout of The Vinery. The house has a good flow and a pleasing layout, with two formal reception rooms lying off the hallway, and an adjoining study.
The kitchen/breakfast room is of particular note, being well-equipped with under counter and wall hung bespoke wood cabinets, complemented by granite surfaces and a central island. There is space for a range cooker, and French doors to the rear terrace; it is served by a utility room, fitted with bespoke wood units and with space for the usual appliances. Beyond lies a rear hall giving access to a family/games room, a boot room, and to the staircase leading up to the principal bedroom suite.
The principal suite has a generous triple aspect bedroom, a balcony offering spectacular views across the garden, a Lefroy Brooks shower room and a second bedroom currently used as a dressing room, which can also be accessed from the main landing.
There are four further bedrooms, one with a stunning Lefroy Brooks en suite shower room and connecting door to the adjoining bedroom, creating an ideal nursery; the remaining two bedrooms are served by a family bathroom.
The Vinery is approached from a track via a pair of electronically operated bespoke five bar gates, opening to the gravelled driveway ahead of the house and the timber framed double heritage garage; beyond lies a small enclosure with storage.
The beautifully landscaped gardens are a particular feature of the property. The grounds are fully enclosed, yet have a lovely open, spacious feel, with an expanse of lawn, interspersed with mature trees and beds, planted with a range of flowering shrubs and plants to provide interest throughout the year.
The heated swimming pool is sited in a slightly elevated position, and is surrounded by a paved terrace offering space for sunloungers. The pool machinery is housed in the outbuilding which lies to the south of the pool.

The walled garden is really special - I think the pool is perfect for entertaining.Rohan Vines
