    About this property

    • Gooserye is a magnificent country house with a history dating as far back as the 1600's, with the majority of the main house built in c.1908 in the style of Sir Edwin Lutyens. Presented in immaculate condition throughout, the house features many original period features including oak beams, oak panelling and working fireplaces.

      The three main reception rooms have a beautiful outlook over the formal gardens to the south. The dining room, study and the games room have exquisite wooden panelling and large windows. This ground floor accommodation flows brilliantly and also includes a formal drawing room, sitting room, kitchen, utility/boot room and WC.

      On the first floor is a minstrel's gallery and vaulted picture gallery, both of which are very typical features of Lutyens' houses. The master bedroom is located at the end of the picture gallery and benefits from high ceilings and views over the gardens. There is a dressing room and en suite bathroom. There are a further six bedrooms and four bathrooms in the main house.

      The house has the benefit of an impressive 17m indoor swimming pool with a hot tub and changing facilities. This is accessed through the brilliantly appointed boot and utility room.

      The main house ‘Gooserye' is complimented by an adjoining, interconnected, property called ‘Pond House'. Pond House has been converted into two flats, each of which is entirely self-contained with its own separate entrance. The first floor flat has three bedrooms, sitting/dining room, bathroom and kitchen. The ground floor flat has a bedroom, reception room with open fireplace, kitchen and bathroom. These flats can be either kept entirely separate or made interconnecting to Gooserye by one, existing, access door from each flat.

      Grounds
      The grounds extend to approximately 16 acres in total. The formal gardens comprise flat lawned areas, a beautiful Jekyll inspired and immaculately maintained inner garden and gently sloping gardens leading to the tennis court and outbuildings. The gardens open up into parkland, woodland full of bluebells and the open paddock beyond.

      There is a four bay garage plus parking space for a further ten cars and numerous outbuildings, workshops and barns which could also be used for stabling.
