About this property

  • 2 Oldlands Hall comprises the west wing of a handsome country house, believed to date from 1875 and set within in a rural country estate setting and benefitting from far-reaching views to the south.

    Number 2 embraces the essence of grand living on a small scale with its own private entrance and garden and accommodation arranged over three floors. Lovely period features include high ceilings and expansive sash windows which maximise the natural light and the property has been stylishly refurbished to a high
    standard with traditional style engineered wood flooring and contemporary fixtures and fittings.

    The impressive dual-aspect formal drawing room features a stone fireplace and wide shuttered bay windows framing a wonderful view over the private terrace and countryside beyond.

    The kitchen overlooks the private garden to the side and is newly-fitted with bespoke space saving Smallbone units and integrated Miele appliances including a grill and an electric oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and an induction hob. A utility area off the entrance hall has cupboards under a wooden worktop providing space and plumbing for a washing machine and the boiler.

    The principal bedroom on the first floor commands a particularly far-reaching view and has a stylish en suite bathroom. The second bedroom on the top floor also enjoys a lovely outlook to the south and the en suite shower room has access to a small balcony.

    The property is approached over a long shared formal drive leading to the front of main house where there is a large turning circle around a central lawn. To the rear is a wide Yorkstone terrace where the wonderful views can be appreciated. There is a private area of level lawn to the side, further private grounds and a detached double garage with a workshop.

    The communal grounds include a line of geometrical ponds with fountains stretching down the length of the rear lawn, parkland and many pathways.
