If you are looking for a country estate house without the worry of land management, then this 5000+ sq. ft. country house on acres of private mature grounds is for you.

Sitting on 3.16 acres of stunning landscaped gardens, the property extends to 5,230 sq. ft. of substantial living space.
Accommodation includes the original house to the front and a converted barn to the rear. The property is laid out in a U shape and is connected by a South facing hallway. This hallway features the grand staircase to the master suite which leads to the sun terrace and 2 further downstairs bedrooms with en-suites.

The original house serves as a 30ft long dining room with marble fire place and American pitch pine floor boards. This is mirrored on the opposite side of the entrance hall with a formal lounge. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms with dressing areas, en-suites and access to the sun terrace. The kitchen can be found off the south facing hallway adjacent to the formal lounge.

At the end of the hall you are introduced to the old barn which now serves as a snug, leading into the gym with full length mirrors and a shower room. Upstairs is a 36ft by 25ft games room with plumbing for a bar and separate W.C. The room connecting the house to the old barn is a beautiful sitting room, with floor to ceiling windows either end and a vaulted ceiling. It also boasts a large marble fire place with multi fuel burning stove. The 30mm thick solid oak floor runs through to the snug. At the end of the barn there is a separate external entrance to a self-contained two bedroom annexe.

The property is certified with an impressive C2 BER Certifcate, heated using Oil Fired Central Heating and features wireless thermostatic zone controlled heating which also heats the water. There are 2 solid fuel feature fireplaces, 1 multi fuel burning stove and 1 gas fired stove in the property.
