About this property

  • This impressive 7 bedroom family house can be found in a sought after location with stunning views over undulating countryside. The property is around 7000 sq. ft., rendered and sits under a clay tiled roof. It has been very well maintained by its current owners and comes to the market for the first time in over 25 years.

    The property is entered into a large reception hall. The kitchen features black granite work surfaces, an AGA and built in appliances include a range of Miele ovens and a Liebherr wine fridge. The tiled floor continues from here into a garden room with French doors opening terracing; perfect for outdoor entertaining.

    The 3 receptions rooms all open out onto the gardens and include a drawing room with fireplace, a dining room, and a large entertainment room with a fully equipped bar. The property also boasts a fabulous indoor swimming pool area with the plant room, and a changing room with shower and WC. There is also a good sized guest cloakroom and beside this there is internal access through to the garaging, laundry room, cloakroom, store room and further studio room above.

    A galleried staircase leads up to the bedroom accommodation which includes a master bedroom with a balcony, a dressing room area, and an en suite bathroom with walk in shower, a guest bedroom with a balcony and dressing area and a Jack and Jill bathroom with bedroom 4. There is a second guest room with en suite shower room and 3 further bedrooms (one with Juliette balcony) and two family bathrooms. All the bedrooms have built in wardrobes and storage and the sumptuous bathrooms come complete with Hans Grohe fixtures and Villeroy and Boch sanitary ware.

    Garden, grounds and paddock
    The property is approached through large electric wrought iron gates and onto a sweeping driveway with ample parking. Beautifully manicured gardens surround the house and there are truly glorious far reaching views to the rear.

    A deep terrace provides seating areas; perfect for outdoor dining and the stepped gardens are very private; mainly to lawn with mature hedging, trees, bushes and perennial shrubs in topiary shapes providing year round colour. The lower garden has a Pavilion with covered veranda, and opposite is a fully enclosed hard surface tennis court. There is also a private paddock.

    The CGIs are an example of what is potentially achievable within the current internal volume subject to the necessary planning approval.

    Please note: Planning permission has not been granted for this neo classical design.
