A handsome former rectory of classical Georgian proportions in an elevated setting in about 10 acres of gardens and grounds.
The property is an exceptional country house offered in exemplary order, having been subject to extensive refurbishment and development by the current owner, under the guidance of the interior designer Diana Sieff and architect Max Miller.
It has classical Georgian features and is understood to date from 1840, having formerly been the rectory to the nearby Holy Trinity Church. The house is situated on rising ground standing in the middle of about 10 acres of gardens and grounds, with a long driveway leading up to the front door.
Pool House and Outbuildings
To the north west of the main house is an L-shaped building incorporating a garage block and an outstanding pool/garden house. The pool house features a fantastic large reception room ideal for entertaining. There is also an impressive fitness studio with adjacent changing room and cloakroom with underfloor heating throughout. There is a single garage and a triple garage complete with battery charging stations, underfloor heating and adjustable security bollards for classic car storage.
Gardens and Grounds
The gardens have been expertly landscaped by Taylor Tripp Garden Design to provide an idyllic setting with large areas of lawn, perfect for croquet; formal gardens with box hedging and structure; potager garden complete with an Alitex greenhouse and a tennis court screened with pleached trees. There are various areas of terracing, one adjacent to the breakfast room and kitchen, which provides a perfect backdrop overlooking the grounds. There is a further sun filled terrace beyond the pool house where the beautiful swimming pool can be found. The salt treated pool has the option of being fully heated by both oil and ground source heating and the area is securely fenced with child lock gates as well as being fitted with a retractable pool cover for maximum peace of mind.
