Mitford House, a former school house dating back to 1736, has been sympathetically restored to provide an excellent family home whilst retaining many of its period features.
The property enters into an impressive hall with a working fireplace and sash windows, this room gives access to the formal double aspect drawing room which is spacious and benefits from large sash windows, pretty french doors, and a large Georgian working fireplace. The morning room, which is located across the hall has a similarly impressive Georgian open fireplace, sash windows and french doors leading to the south facing formal gardens. The newly fitted kitchen, which is double aspect, features an open fireplace and leads through to a spacious and light breakfast room. There is a well-proportioned utility room and a separate boiler/boot room which houses the newly replaced Worcester boiler and Megaflow system and gives access to the rear parking area. The downstairs accommodation is completed by a dining room, a snug, a study and two downstairs cloakrooms.
The property has two particularly grand staircases, the first leading to the first floor accommodation only, the latter giving access to all three floors. On the first floor there is a superb family room with pretty views across the south and west gardens, this room further benefits from original oak flooring, a Juliet balcony, sash windows and an open fireplace. A substantial double aspect master bedroom is located across the hall; this room has an adjoining dressing room and access to the pretty south facing external balcony, which can also be accessed from the hallway via french doors. There are five further double bedrooms, all offering a wealth of character and charm, one of which has a smaller dressing room which could potentially be converted into an en-suite if required. This floor also has two newly fitted family bathrooms and a shower room.
The second floor, which is accessed via the back stairs, has a spacious double aspect reception room, two large double bedrooms, and a newly fitted bathroom. The reception room also leads through to The Studio, a wonderful multifunctional additional space which was previously used as an art studio. This double aspect room offers generous proportions and has two separate cloakrooms, in addition The Studio also has the added benefit of being entirely self-contained with access from an external spiral staircase.

Mitford House is approached from a quiet country lane leading into a private shingle driveway. The property sits within formal gardens and woodland. From the front parking area there is a pretty path which leads through a walled garden up to Mitford House, either side a lawned area, with surrounding plants including a variety of roses. A larger lawned area is located to the south of the property again with a variety of beautiful plants and trees forming a particularly special view of the property, which is heightened in summer months by wisteria wrapping around the balcony.
There is an impressive woodland area to the north and east of Mitford House, within this are a variety of mature trees along with two outbuildings and a workshop. There is a large parking area to the rear which offers space for more than 10 cars.
