This beautiful Georgian family home, which enjoys stunning views across the grounds, has been subject to an exceptional restoration combining elegant character with all the conveniences for modern living.
Internally, the home is of a typical Georgian stature, with reception rooms, both to the left and the right of the substantial reception hall. They are elegantly proportioned and retain many period features including good height, lightly beamed, with substantial fireplaces and masses of natural light from the large sash windows. Of Particular note is the bespoke fitted country kitchen (made by Lavenham Joinery), which incorporates particularly fine cabinetry. This room is further enhanced by the addition of an exceptional orangery, which creates a large light and airy space for all the family to enjoy, with beautiful southerly views onto the garden; fabulous for entertaining.
Further rooms on the ground floor include the study, Downstairs shower room/wc and a separate boot room. There is a separate utility with cabinetry to match the kitchen and a gardener’s wc, which has access from both inside and out. The cellar is accessible from the kitchen.
On the first floor are five bedrooms, most with wardrobe cupboards, together with the family bathroom, with separate shower, a second shower room, and a separate cloakroom.
To the rear of the house sits a pretty cottage garden with several arbours, the Pump/Bakehouse, and a beautiful Listed flint wall. From this part of the garden a gate leads to the stable yard, comprising 6 boxes, a tack room as well as a tractor shed which could be used as a garage. The formal gardens have been partially redesigned by the present owners, providing a tranquil setting with a variety of different areas to be seated, each taking in a different aspect of the garden.
The areas around the house are watered by a rainbird automatic watering system, which is fed by the enclosed pond. Vistas have been created to the south with an avenue of Sweet Gum/ Liquid Amber trees, which are underplanted with Lavenders and Geums, flanked by lawns which fall away gently, to the spring fed pond and the River Brain. Post and rail fencing surround the pond and the grounds, with some parts spilt into paddocks. Additional land is available, by separate negotiation.
