A stunning Georgian house dating back to 1725 which has retained many of its original features.
Hobourn House is a quintessentially Georgian Grade II listed property in the historic market town of Woburn.
Built in 1725, this Georgian three storey red brick double pile home stands majestically along Bedford Street.
The façade has typical Georgian symmetry with 2 bays of sashed windows on either side of the middle bay with the front door flanked by 2 stone Tuscan columns holding a triangle pediment. The majestic home is adorned with ashlar dressings including quoins, windowsills, plinth and band.
The ground floor composes of a large living room and formal mahogany panelled dining room, on either side of the grand entry, both with fireplaces. There is an expansive traditional bespoke designer kitchen with a large island. The built-in leather upholstered breakfast area is nestled in the extension which has a lovely view of the garden and beyond, complete with a hidden television lift in the bookcase; this strategic location takes advantage of the morning light.
There are 6 spacious bedrooms, 3 on each floor, each floor offering 1 en suite and 1 family bathroom.
The lower ground floor has an entertainment/ playroom, boot room, plant room with a modern fuel-efficient boiler, water tank and upgraded electrics. Further below is a spacious wine cellar.
There is Cat 6 wiring throughout the house with
100mb services currently available.
The house has dual aspects of the 2 prominent churches, a view most sought-after within the village.
The terraced garden has 4 levels, a spacious brick patio for entertaining, 2 further grass areas, the last with a mature cedar of Lebanon and a 3 car oak framed, slate roof carport on the fourth level.
The carport can be reached down a long private driveway owned by the neighbour (easement rights).
