    About this property

    • Coles Hill House:

      A beautiful Grade ll listed Georgian country house set in 20 acres of formal gardens and parkland with wonderful views. Dating from the 17th century, the north elevation was an 18th century addition providing a handsome mellow red brick symmetry, whilst an early 19th century addition was made to the west.

      Coles Hill House is an exceptional family home which has been in the same family ownership since 1963, and would now benefit from some sympathetic renovation. The principal house combines elegant reception rooms, ideal for entertaining and at first floor there is comfortable bedroom accommodation. The second floor is currently unused, however there is good ceiling height and excellent potential for increasing the bedroom accommodation or creating a staff flat at this level.

      The gardens and grounds provide a tranquil private setting, laid mostly to lawn with attractive formal rose beds and clipped yew hedges to the south. There is a tennis court and a useful range of traditional outbuildings providing garaging, stables, kennels, and various store rooms. Adjoining the gardens and grounds are two well-fenced paddocks providing useful grazing for horses whilst at the same time protecting the immediate environments of the house. The property comprises about 20 acres in total.

    A country house in such an idyllic setting does not come to the market very often. Coles Hill House has been owned by the same family since 1963 and gives the new buyer a chance to create a very special family home to their taste within a stunning Georgian country house.
