A stunning Georgian village house with secondary accommodation set in beautiful grounds close to Hungerford.
Shefford Woodlands House is a beautiful and impressive Grade II listed Georgian village house with well-proportioned, elegant rooms and a spacious and grand feel. High ceilings and large sash windows throughout fill the rooms with natural light and there is a stunning entrance hall and sweeping staircase at the centre of the house leading to the main reception rooms.
The property would now benefit from some updating and modernisation, and would make a wonderful family home.
There is a delightful formal drawing room looking out across the gardens, together with an impressive dining room and a smaller, more intimate sitting room. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a four-oven Aga and has a large walk-in larder, with a butler’s pantry and large utility room adjacent.
The staircase leads up to a half-landing with an attractive full-height window, and beyond this the spacious, wide landings lead to five good sized double bedrooms and three bathrooms. The property is currently divided to form a separate annexe with its own entrance, but this could easily be reinstated to create one larger house again. The annexe comprises a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.
Rose Cottage, available by separate negotiation, is situated adjacent to the main house, and is a pretty, end of terrace period cottage, attached at the back to the workshop/ orangery. On the ground floor, there are two reception rooms, a kitchen and bathroom, and upstairs are two bedrooms and a further bathroom. The cottage has a delightful garden to the side, in addition to the front garden.
The house sits in the middle of its grounds and is approached down a gravel drive past a central lawn and fountain, edged with beautiful yew hedges.
The gardens and grounds are mature and well established, with areas of formal lawns and mature trees, and smaller, more secluded areas enclosed by tall yew hedges and mixed flower borders. The kitchen looks out towards a charming box hedge parterre and rose garden.
There is a fabulous orangery, which would make a superb party and entertaining space, or could be used as a potential home office/additional accommodation, subject to any necessary planning permission. In addition, there is a courtyard of outbuildings incorporating two garages, two large workshop/stores, a four-bay car port and an extensive gravelled parking area. In the southern corner of the grounds there is a disused tennis court.
