A truly stunning and unique duplex apartment set within a Grade I listed converted Manor House.
This wonderfully presented duplex apartment forms a large part of a converted manor house, itself which is Grade I listed and dates back nearly 300 years.
A sweeping gravelled driveway provides a turning and parking area to the front of the main building with steps and entrance into the main hall shared by the residents. An easy rise staircase leads to the first floor where you will find the entrances for Lakeview.
On entering the apartment you will find the reception hallway with stairs to the upper floor, with a generous guest cloakroom and built in coats cupboard. From here, you step through into the magnificent principal reception room with a large bay fronted window to the rear enjoying stunning views over the lake and parkland beyond. The character of this room is fantastic with a high ceiling and ornate cornicing and plasterwork. There is an original fireplace and one corner of the room leads to a decent sized study area with a range of built in storage units.
The dining room itself is equally impressive with a dual aspect over the gardens as before. This room has a feature fireplace and original shutters to some of the windows. The inner hall has further storage with a door leading to the kitchen/breakfast room which has a modern range of wall and base units and integrated appliances.
On the first floor landing, there is further built in storage and a door to the master bedroom suite which occupies the area above the drawing room and as such is a magnificent space with plenty of built in storage and an en suite bathroom with a separate shower. There are three further bedrooms, all of which have fitted wardrobes, one also with an en suite shower room. Finally, there is a further family bathroom on this level.
On the outside, as mentioned before, the communal gardens wrap around the Manor House, providing an air of exclusivity and delightful walks in various areas to enjoy the views over the lake. Nestled to the side of the main house is an additional parking area for visitors and access to the garage blocks where there is a double garage for the sole use of this apartment.
One of the finest converted apartments that I have seen - excellent and extraordinary living space providing a wonderfully private retreat, yet within striking distance of central London. The view over the lake to the rear is priceless.Justin Godfrey
