About this property

  • Wheaten House is a unique architect designed family home offering a high degree of flexibility in grounds of some 6.9 acres or thereabouts. The main house extends to some 6,700 sq ft, plus extensive garaging, and it enjoys glorious panoramic views across open countryside.

    Features include ground source under-floor heating installed on
    concrete upper and lower floors throughout the main house,
    controlled by individual room thermostats. Cat 8 wiring available in all main rooms to distribute internet, HD TV and telephones wherever required, plus a high quality Nuvo music system, with individual room controls and stereo ceiling speakers in all reception rooms and bedrooms.

    The stunning accommodation is arranged over two principal floors and has been carefully created to offer significant flexibility, including the option to convert part of the ground floor to independent living.

    At the heart of the house is the double height cathedral entrance hall, which leads through to the principal sitting room which has a wonderful open aspect, and includes a mezzanine study/library area.

    There is a further reception/family room which leads on to the extremely well fitted and presented Pippy Oak open plan kitchen, with its adjoining dining/conservatory area. Following on are the pantry, boot room and utility room, and above the extensive triple garage is a large games room, again with an open aspect.

    The opposite side of the house features a spacious circular study, perfectly suited as a home office, two bedrooms and a bedroom/reception room. Off the spacious upstairs landing is a principal bedroom suite with balcony, fully fitted dressing room and large bathroom with separate W.C. The side corridor opposite leads to three further bedrooms and a Jack and Jill family bathroom, with one of the bedrooms enjoying an en suite shower and W.C.

    The approach and setting of the house are quite outstanding with a circular drive area to the front, and mature areas of flowering shrubs and trees around the property. There are generous separate patio areas that take full advantage of the open outlook, together with a Jacuzzi spa set within the garden area.

    In all there are some 6.9 acres.

  • most rooms.
