About this property

  • The Priory is a substantial Grade II* Listed house, which is believed to date from 1154, where according to the listing, the property was established as a small assembly or college of Augustinian canons, which was later dissolved in 1539 and the building converted into a dwelling, which has been adapted over the years including 19th Century additions.

    As it stands today, the property has been thoroughly modernised and sensitively adapted to create a characterful and versatile family home brimming with original features, including carved oak beams, ornate plasterwork, leaded windows and inglenook fireplaces, to name but a few.

    With accommodation over three floors, extending to over 5,800 sq ft, the house accommodates a large family with ease, and there is potential for an annexe if required, subject to the necessary consents.

    The ground floor comprises a cross passage hallway, a dining room, drawing room, kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, a utility room and study. At the back of the house, a garden room has a spiral staircase leading to a library or cinema room on the first floor. There is also a study, utility room and boot room.

    On the first floor, there is a principal bedroom suite with dressing room and en suite bathroom, and 4 further guest bedroom suites. There are two further bedrooms, a shared bathroom, sitting area and store room on the second floor.

    Outside, the house is approached through a gated entrance, which leads to an extensive parking and turning area to the side of the house and in front of the detached triple garage. Within the gardens there is a substantial detached barn, which has been converted to provide a wonderful entertaining space, with water and electric connected, a kitchen area and WC's. This building could lend itself to a variety of alternate uses, subject to the necessary consents.

    The gardens face to the south and west, enjoying plenty of sun and views. There are extensive level lawns, terraces, a vegetable garden, greenhouse and potting/tool sheds within the gardens, and a series of paths which lead down towards a section of woodland running alongside the village pond.
