An exquisite and chic contemporary country home set within magnificent grounds approaching 5 acres. The cleverly designed architecture boasts excellent sized rooms throughout with an emphasis on natural light and entertaining space.
Constructed of mellow red brick under a clay tile roof, Langley Wood House was completed in early 2016 and is finished to an exceptional standard.
Internally the house combines light and spacious reception rooms on the ground and lower ground floors, with five bedrooms and bathroom suites on the first floor. There is an additional sixth bedroom and bathroom suite on the lower ground level.

The entrance hall gives a wonderful sense of arrival, with a double height vaulted ceiling, glazed doors into the garden, and a wonderful sweeping staircase leading to the first floor.

Langley Wood House caters for today’s modern living standards and includes Lutron lighting, wiring for audio system, air handling system in the entertainment room and automated blinds into he principal reception room.
