    About this property

    • Originally built in 1928, Sandham House is an impressive and individual house which has been significantly remodeled and updated to create a very comfortable family home. The accommodation is spread neatly over three floors providing a very flexible space for family living. In 2000 the current owners substantially extended and refurbished the house and the attention to detail is very apparent throughout. The rooms are all very spacious and the high ceilings give a real sense of natural light and space. The main reception rooms are very well proportioned and all lead off an impressive double height entrance hall with a galleried landing which provides the space for the spectacular staircase. The kitchen is also very well appointed and fitted by the highly regarded kitchen maker John Lewis of Hungerford.

      On the first floor there are two en suite bedrooms, three further guest bedrooms and a family bathroom. The second floor comprises of three further rooms which provides additional flexible accommodation, which are currently used as a large home office, gym and playroom/dressing room.

      Sandham House sits centrally within its plot with generous gardens to the south side and a large graveled parking area to the north. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn and enclosed by mature hedging providing a private setting for the house. Leading directly from the kitchen and sitting room is a very spacious terrace providing an excellent space for entertaining.

      Planning permission has been granted for a detached double garage. Ref: 18/01711/HSE

    The entrance hall at Sandham House must be one of the best i have seen. I love the way the staircase is such a centre point of this house.
