About this property

  • Netherby is an impressive detached family home set within an acre plot of mature grounds. The Tudor style house dates from 1903 and was built as a wedding gift to John Roberts and Jenny Adams by Jenny's father Denovan Adams, a talented artist of the era. The house has fine west facing reception rooms and superb period features throughout such as wood panelling, ornate cornicing and sash and case windows. The exterior is beautifully presented and finished with brick, white harling, painted timbers, sandstone window sills and a red pantile roof. The house has been in the same family ownership for almost 55 years.

    The hallway is accessed through a set of impressive double storm doors where there is a cloakroom with a separate WC. The hallway gives access to the three reception rooms and is a beautiful space with a grand staircase, arches and wood panelling. The drawing room has a large bay window overlooking the garden as well as an open fire with original finely carved mantelpiece and Portland stone surround.

    The sitting room is also a fine space with views over the garden. This was the original dining room for the property and formerly linked with the butler's pantry, which is fitted with original wall mounted cabinets. Situated between both rooms is the elegant dining room, which also looks over the garden.

    The kitchen is south facing and has plenty of space for a dining table. There is a range of fitted wall and floor mounted units with integrated appliances. Located off the kitchen is a laundry room, butler's pantry, wine cellar, WC, store room, game larder with original cold storage shelves and former coal cellar.

    The first floor is split into two sections with four of the main bedrooms located to the front of the house, each looking over the gardens to the front and rear. There are two family bathrooms serving the main bedrooms and one en suite shower room located in the east facing bedroom. The landing has a useful store cupboard and a walk in linen store with ample shelving.

    To the back of the house are a further two bedrooms, a shower room and a separate WC, accessed both by a second stair by the kitchen and from the main landing.

    The attic is accessed from the hall outside one of the bathrooms and has a dormer window.

    The grounds of Netherby are accessed by double gates set between impressive stone pillars on the corner of St Mary's Drive and The Crescent. The driveway leads through the beautiful grounds of Netherby to the front door and round to the garage. The main lawn sits to the west and down a small flight of steps from the upper terrace which has a path running around the house. On the south side of the house is a large greenhouse which catches the sun for most of the day in the summer months. Across from the back door is the double garage, old wash house and gardener's WC. Beyond the garage is another area of mature garden ground with a pedestrian gate out onto The Crescent. In total the grounds extend to about an acre.
