Characterful family home in delightful grounds
Ladymead is a fabulous family home with 16th century origins which has been extensively remodelled and updated over the years. The house is very well proportioned and benefits from extensive gardens with paddock, tennis court and swimming pool. Internally, the property is well presented and ideal for family life, while retaining many character features such as exposed beams and flagstone floors. Recent improvements to the house include double glazing throughout, a 4 bar water pump and 5 amp lighting to the principal rooms.
The front door leads on to a generous hallway with polished parquet flooring. Leading on from the hallway is a delightful double aspect study with oak flooring and fitted cabinets. The kitchen is a wonderful entertaining space with an AGA, York stone flagstone floor, bespoke fitted units and a walk in larder. The breakfast room has a vaulted beamed ceiling, underfloor heating and doors leading out on to a terrace. There is also a useful utility and boot room to the rear of the house as well as a stylish downstairs cloakroom. The family/dining room has a wonderful inglenook fireplace with French doors on to the garden and terrace.
A formal sitting room with an open fire and French doors on to the garden completes the downstairs accommodation.
To the first floor there are 6 bedrooms, a walk in dressing room and a principal suite with built in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. There are two further family bathrooms.
Externally the gardens and grounds are delightful and made up of lawned areas, an orchard and a pretty parterre garden next to the house. In addition there is an outdoor heated pool, pool house with kitchenette, changing area with showers and a WC. The tennis court is located behind the pool and the grounds are completed by a paddock and stable area. To the front of the house is a driveway, parking for several cars and a double garage.
