Wonderfully tranquil family house and detached lodge set in a unique secluded location surrounded by about 1.5 acres of glorious private gardens.
Mandrakes is a wonderfully special property consisting of a three bedroom main house with pool and a detached stone built two double bedroom lodge enjoying fine rural views on all sides.
Mandrakes has been continuously restored over the years by our clients to provide comfortable and stylish accommodation over two floors. The kitchen boasts a four hotplate Aga with much exposed brickwork showing the galletting in the mortar, a distinctive feature of local properties. The sitting/dining room has a central wood burning stove and door into the conservatory overlooking the swimming pool and garden. The breakfast room/study has a feature 'French fire' and wall built in cupboards again with doors to the garden.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The Rose room with views to the front, the Lavender room with views over the pool and garden and the glorious Master bedroom with a roll top bath set on a plinth, built in cupboards and triple aspect views.
The stone built lodge has been converted to a spacious two bedroom self contained building with a large open-plan sitting/dining room with huge log burner, a kitchen with an Aga, small study and shower room.
Stairs lead to a galleried landing where there are two stylish bedrooms and a bathroom.
The wonderful grounds of approximately 1.5 acres include a pretty swimming pool. Extensive walled gardens surround the property with flower areas, woodlands, terraced areas, herb garden, orchard and vegetable plot with a fruit cage and cold frame. Much of the old terracing remains providing feature walls for espalier fruit trees and climbing plants. There are numerous outbuildings including large Greenhouses, an apricot house, Pavilion/Studio, tool shed and kennel.
