Layer Breton Hall is an imposing country home that offers substantial and well-presented accommodation set within substantial grounds and a beautiful semi-rural position close to Abberton Reservoir and the Abberton SSSI. This six bedroom detached family home offers exceptional living spaces which have been finished to an exacting standard and benefits from decor that offers the perfect balance between traditional charm and bright, contemporary living. The property is set over three floors, with the ground floor accommodation accessed via a generous reception hall. To the right is a formal dining room and to the left a formal drawing room, both of which possess dual aspect windows and ornate feature fireplaces. The spacious sitting room lies adjacent and features triple aspect windows overlooking the beautiful garden, as well as a principal door providing access to it. There is also a stunning fireplace with exposed brick chimney breast and woodburning stove. The farmhouse style kitchen includes a range of wooden base and wall mounted units with integrated appliances, an Aga, quarry tile flooring, exposed ceiling timbers, and a substantial informal dining area. Ideal for informal and formal entertaining, the adjacent breakfast room provides further dining space as well as large patio doors that provide a stunning outlook over and access to the rear garden. This floor also benefits from a cloakroom with dual sink and separate W.C.
On the first floor, there are four bedrooms. Located to the front of the property, both the master bedroom and second bedroom enjoy front and side aspect over the gardens and beyond, fitted wardrobes, feature fireplaces, and an en-suite bathroom. There are an additional two good-sized bedrooms on this floor, both featuring rural views and fitted wardrobes. The bedrooms are serviced by a well-appointed family bathroom with modern white suite and dual washbasins. Upstairs on the second floor are two further generously sized bedrooms that are well-served by a Jack and Jill bathroom.
Set well back from the road, Layer Breton Hall is approached via a large shingle driveway that leads to the detached double garage providing ample off-street parking. The substantial garden wraps around the property and is mainly laid to beautifully manicured lawn, with designated areas of well-stocked beds, shrubbery and mature trees. Adding extra charm, the side of the house is embellished with beautiful climbing roses that extend up to the second storey. The garden also features a useful outbuilding, as well as a large pond surrounded by mature and weeping trees. Fully enclosed by hedging and bordered predominantly by fields, the gardens offer a peaceful, secluded outdoor space to relax and enjoy the views of the surrounding countryside. Adjoining the south facing lawn is the two and one half acre paddock.
