    About this property

    • The Seymour forms a major part of an impressive Grade II Victorian Gothic style stone mansion which is set in 12 acres of fine parkland and approached along an extensive private driveway with paddocks and meadows to either side. The property was built in the Victorian era for the Gosling family and remained in their ownership until finally being sold and converted into a private school (Waterside School).

      The mansion itself is set behind a gated frontage with allocated parking to the front of the building around a central island. The garage block is accessed independently.

      The grand entrance hallway on the ground floor gives access to a coats cupboard and guest cloakroom. There are two spacious reception rooms – both with high ceilings and period details. The drawing room has an aspect over the gardens to the rear. The kitchen breakfast area offers plenty of space and a feature fireplace, together with a range of fitted units.

      Upstairs the are four bedrooms, three of which have en suite facilities. A roof terrace is accessible via the principal suite and this enjoys wonderful countryside views.

      The Seymour is presently a two storey property and subject to the relevant permissions it may be possible to add a second floor by converting the large attic space. Outside and to the rear of the property on the southern aspect of the house there is a private paved terrace with stone balustrade and steps leading down to the croquet lawn.
