About this property

  • Fronting West Street, this elegant and generously proportioned six-bedroom house offers 5400 sq ft of accommodation, with cellars, triple garaging and beautifully landscaped south facing gardens of about an acre, with tennis court and wonderful kitchen garden.

    Grade II listed, the mid-18th century house has an attractive appearance with honey-coloured dressed stone elevations under a collyweston slate roof.  Internally, the house retains its period grace and elegance, with tall sash windows, many shuttered, parquet and wood flooring, period fireplaces and picture rails, coupled with high ceilings.  This is fabulous family home with a real sense of space and natural light, coupled with incredible gardens.  It is perfectly designed for entertaining.

    The front door opens to a Minton-tiled entrance hallway.  The four reception rooms are all spacious, elegant rooms with high ceilings, and attractive period fireplaces.  The sitting and dining rooms have parquet flooring and shuttered bay windows and, with the solid wood floored office, line the property's frontage to West Street.  The south facing drawing room is a fabulous room, adjoining the kitchen, with a large shuttered bay window offering views of the gardens.  The farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room has ample space for family dining and an extensive suite arranged around a rangecooker, with additional integrated appliances.  A rear hallway leads to the ancillary laundry and cloakroom, providing access to the cellar staircase.

    There are four double bedroom suites at first floor, served by two staircases.  The principal bedroom overlooks the gardens and has a Jack & Jill en suite bathroom with full suite.  Bedroom two has a large bay window and an en suite shower room.  Bedroom three has an adjoining dressing room and bedroom four and en suite bathroom. 

    There are two further double bedrooms, with a child's games room and second family bathroom, with further attic storage, at second floor level.

    Vehicular access is through an impressive pair of stone pillars, with double timber gates opening from the courtyard to the property's driveway, which leads past the house to a turning sweep at the triple garage block, over which there is a useful store room. 

    The beautiful gardens are largely walled and lie to the south of the house, extending to 0.99 of an acre.  With an extensive split-level lawn, mature deciduous and fruit species trees, the gardens have well stocked planted borders, a lawn tennis court and, spanning the rear of the house, a partially covered terrace.

This is such an impressive home. The proportions are elegant, the features attractive and orientation and gardens impressive. I particularly like being able to walk to a village baker's, mini-market and pub to the front, with countryside walks to the rear, via Church Walk.
