Headley Meadows is a traditional country house nestling in stunning gardens in a parkland setting.
An elegant and well-proportioned drawing room, dining room, sitting room and study are all positioned on the southern elevation to capture the views of the garden and the southerly aspect. The kitchen/ breakfast room opens onto the formal gardens to the side and there is a utility area and wine store.
Upstairs, the main bedroom takes advantage of the elevated position and has far-reaching views of the garden and pool towards the tennis court and the lower field. There is an en suite bathroom leading to a dressing room. Headley Meadows has two more bedrooms on the first floor plus a family bathroom; a good sized ground floor bedroom with adjacent bathroom provides guest or au pair accommodation. In addition, there is a flat at the rear of the house which can be accessed from either the main house or the rear of the house as well as having its own private entrance outside. It has a separate sitting room, bathroom, kitchen and bedroom. Headley Meadows has been a family home for the existing owners for forty years and there is now scope for modernisation to create an idyllic country home in a tranquil setting. Alternatively the opportunity exists for the house to be replaced with a brand new country residence, subject to the usual planning consents. EPC rating F.
Headley Meadows is approached via a secure sliding iron gate leading to a stunning tree-lined drive winding up to the house which is positioned prominently at the top of the gently sloping land with elevated views over its own fields and gardens. The heated swimming pool and tennis court are in excellent condition, having been well-maintained by the current owners.
The professionally landscaped gardens were originally laid out by the gardeners at Wisley in Surrey in the 1960s and as a result there is an impressive selection of mature, specimen trees creating park-like gardens, which have been lovingly tended and maintained. A large paddock at the top of the property has a stable and connected water with two gates leading to the woods beyond. The large field at the bottom of the property also has water supplied directly to it. From the house the south-facing terrace looks out over the gardens and down towards the swimming pool and tennis court.
From the kitchen there is access to a more formal garden bordered by box hedging and a beautiful original stone wall. A number of outbuildings provide useful storage. Turning and parking for numerous cars to the front, with a detached double garage to the rear.
