About this property

  • Originally a traditional stone farmhouse, Gothens was extended on a grand scale in 2004 to create an impressive country house with leisure wing. With its astragal windows, harled walls, slate roof and central courtyard, Gothens has an extremely pretty traditional exterior which fits beautifully into the surrounding countryside. The interior meanwhile is contemporary, luxurious and ideal for entertaining.

    At the front of the house stone pillars frame the smart front entrance which opens to a vestibule and then the reception hall. This is the original part of the house where there is a sitting room, dining room and a beautiful kitchen with a large central island, four oven AGA and painted timber units. The kitchen is open to a dining area in the sun room which has doors to a south facing terrace. In the newer part of the house there is an impressive drawing room with beautiful timber floor, a large fireplace and French doors opening into the garden. Beyond is a music room/library which has a wall of fitted shelving and connects to a peaceful light filled conservatory.

    The west wing of Gothens houses the leisure suite with indoor swimming pool , Jacuzzi, changing room, shower, 2 W.Cs, bar/sitting area, large games room and a decked terrace. In addition to all of this there is a home cinema, complete with cinema seats. The plant room is also at this end of the house. The biomass boiler efficiently heats the swimming pool as well as the house.

    The first floor accommodation is split between the main house to the south and above the games room to the north. In the main house the principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom, 2 dressing areas and a private sitting room. There are four further double bedrooms (two en suite) and a family bathroom. Above the games room there are two double bedrooms and a shower room, in addition to the home cinema.

    Garage apartment
    Above the garage there is a one bedroom apartment with kitchen, sitting room, bedroom, store room and bathroom as well as a ground floor utility area.

    The triple garage also has a store room on the ground floor.

    Timber shed / biomass store

    Electric gates open into a tree lined avenue and then to gravel parking at the front of the house and also in the courtyard at the rear. The remainder of the garden is mainly neat lawn and there is a paved terrace outside the sun room as well as the decked terrace beside the swimming pool.
