A fine Arts and Crafts house with a cottage and extensive grounds of about 14.37 acres.
Cotebrook House is a magnificent Arts and Crafts house built in the style of CFA Voysey, the well-known English architect and textile designer. It is an handsome thatched property in a prominent position overlooking its land, which is bisected by a long sweeping drive through grassland leading to the rear of the house.
The front door opens into an impressive reception hall providing access to the main reception rooms. These include an elegant drawing room with a fireplace and a door from a rectangular bay to a veranda. The adjoining sitting room and dining room also have access to the garden via French doors. At the western end of the house is a kitchen/breakfast room with a range of fitted storage units, a utility room and a snug. There is a wine cellar and a side hall with back stairs to the first floor and a door to the garden.
The main staircase rises from the reception hall to a half landing with a cloakroom off and stairs continue to the main landing serving the bedrooms. There are seven bedrooms in all, including two with access onto the balcony, each of which with fitted wardrobes, and five bathrooms (three en suite). The total internal area is around 6000 sq ft.
The house is set in delightful landscaped gardens with a mixture of formal planting, including wonderful herbaceous borders, and less structured areas. At its heart is an outdoor swimming pool framed by a paved terrace and adjoin a glazed garden room/conservatory connected to the garaging and office block.
The garaging provides a link to the delightful two storey thatched cottage with a hall, kitchen, and two reception rooms on the ground floor. A bathroom is accessed off a half landing and on the second floor are two bedrooms.
On the far side of the garden room are changing rooms, an office and a workshop/store with gardeners w.c. Opposite is a stable block with a small grooms flat.
The land, which is currently in grass, slopes gently away from the house and is bisected by the tarmac driveway. It is currently unfenced and mown but offers potential for equestrian uses.
