A wonderful family home of great period integrity
This exquisite grade II listed William and Mary home, of architectural and historical importance, was built circa 1698 and has been home to a private school and Thomas Holloway - the English portrait painter noted for his arduous engraving of cartoons by Raphael at Windsor Castle in 1800.
The house features a magnificent five window wide facade of brown brick with red dressings, relieved by beautifully regimented fenestration, a small central pediment and a distinctive modillion (under eaves) cornice. There is also delightful stucco work, as well as a pretty doorcase and canopy to the ground floor.
Internally this period integrity is also apparent throughout with a number of notable features, including a most elegant carved staircase and door architraving, operational box window shutters, wall panelling, wide timber floorboards and some stunning fireplaces. All of which are complimented by our clients tasteful choice of decor and an excellent flow of natural light.
The rooms are beautifully proportioned and the stunning first floor drawing room is of particular note. The configuration allows superbly for entertaining but equally well for everyday family life with excellent provision for live in staff or teenage children requiring some independence.
To the rear of the house there is a delightful and established garden that leads into a walled courtyard and garage area(accessed via Johnsons Drive), providing secure parking.
