About this property

  • Bullen Court was originally a row of period cottages and dates back to the mid 19th Century and has been comprehensively re-modelled and extended to create what is now a most attractive village house of impressive proportions offering almost 6000 square feet of living accommodation. On the ground floor are some delightful reception rooms with period features including open fireplaces, decorative tiled floors and a particularly attractive main staircase leading to the first floor from the spacious reception hall. The house has plenty of space for entertaining or for a large family with a good size drawing room, additional sitting room and lovely light dining room over looking the river. In addition is a generous kitchen/breakfast room with AGA, scullery, pantry and laundry rooms close by. On the first floor is a spacious principal bedroom seven further bedrooms and ample bathrooms.

    Stable Cottage
    Adjacent to Bullen Court is the cottage, previously used to provide rental income but would be equally suited to guest accommodation or for relatives. The property is well appointed and provides a living room with adjoining kitchen / breakfast room. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and bathroom.

    Outside
    Bullen Court is set back from Goose Lane along a private driveway that sweeps past the main house and around to Stable Cottage where there is extensive parking and both a double and single garage. The property is nicely situated with plenty of privacy and a particularly attractive, mature well maintained garden surrounding the house. The river Ding runs gently past the house to the south and a pretty white painted bridge leads across to an area of garden on the southern bank. To the rear of the house is a most attractive walled garden with gravelled area and stone terrace, a level lawn and two greenhouses. To the west is another attractive area of garden with level lawn, some fine mature trees and decorative yew hedge plants. To the west of the property is the bulk of the land, opposite Stable Cottage is a further extensive area of lawn with enclosed all weather tennis court and beyond this lies an enclosed paddock of approximately 3.2 acres from which there is road access to the paddock from Paulls Lane. Adjacent to the paddock is a small area of woodland.
