About this property

  • Tigley House is a beautiful and immaculately presented Grade II listed home of immense charm and character. Originally dating from circa 1550, the current owners have been in residence for over 23 years and have modernised and extended the property in to what it is today. The flagstone entrance hall leads into an impressive living room / reception hall with antique paneling to one wall and a wood burning stove set in a large recess. From this room, doors lead to the two further sitting rooms, both with wood burning stoves and one currently used as a large home office. An arch leads to the fabulous dining room complete with a glass topped well set within the floor and double doors leading to the stunning gardens beyond. The kitchen offers more than a hint of Greece with white washed stone walls, pale blue units and a stone tiled floor.
    Integral appliances include an electric cooker, dishwasher and 2 fridges. Off the kitchen is the former 'ash house' now used as a pantry and there are steps leading to the utility room / boot room. Also on the ground floor but accessed by it's own private set of stone steps is bedroom 5 and an adjoining shower room / cloakroom.

    The galleried landing on the first floor leads to two en suite double bedrooms and two further double bedrooms, although one is currently fitted with a cabin bed and desk for visiting grandchildren. There is also a family bathroom with shower on this floor.

    Tigley Stable (annexe) is a detached converted stable which offers simply gorgeous accommodation over one level. The open plan sitting room has floor to ceiling windows and a Jerusalem marble tiled floor with under floor heating. The kitchen area is fitted with a number of units, a cooker and a fridge. There is a double bedroom and wet room.

    Outside the gardens are a delight, being well established and beautifully kept. There are a number of specimen trees including a Swamp Cypress and a Judas Tree and although gardens are mainly laid to lawn, there is a wonderful selection of Rhododendrons. Camellias and Azaleas. Within the gardens is an Indonesian Summer House with veranda and a timber garden gazebo. An outbuilding houses all the garden machinery and ride on lawn mower.
