Inherently private, this grand English country house was originally built in 1927 and is set in approx. 1 ha (2.5 acres) of sundrenched ornamental gardens and lawns.
Having been faithfully restored, the house has retained all the grand architectural features of its period including the coffered, pressed metal and plaster ceilings, curved walls, timber floors, large paned windows and several open fireplaces with ornate fire surrounds. There is hydronic heating throughout.
The property is gated and fully fenced with entry via a discreet circular gravel driveway that leads through the park-like grounds to the stone-paved entrance porch. The large colonnaded portico entrance enjoys a Georgian theme overlooking the tiered water fountain in the front garden.
A distinct French country look greets as do the bespoke French timber shutters covering floor to ceiling windows and doors and the huge expanse of parquetry flooring extends through the enormous commercial grade gourmet kitchen, family eating area and formal living room.
Immediately adjoining and flowing directly on from the living room and family room is the dramatic English style glass conservatory of impressive proportions which soars to the top of the two-storey house. The roof, windows and double glass doors are left uncovered to reveal the large gardens and sky vista offering magical views of stars and moon-shining. Underfloor heating ensures warmth through the cooler months and double glass doors at first floor level are opened at night to allow warm air to circulate through the upper floor.
Extremely versatile, the current configuration has 6 generous bedrooms, 4 bathrooms (3 are ensuite), and sitting area. The master bedroom, as befitting a house of this magnitude, is particularly large with its separate sitting and bed areas together with walk-in robe and ensuite bathroom. The guest suite also enjoys a large separate sitting and bed area and ensuite bathroom, a private and substantial outdoor terrace and its own ground floor entrance. The second guest suite with its lovely outlook of the front gardens has an ensuite bathroom and an exclusive separate outdoor terrace. The remaining 3 bedrooms are character filled and generously proportioned. All have outstanding garden views.
The outdoor facilities include an inground pool in a stone paved setting with an arbour of grand colonnaded Georgian columns.
