Freshwater House represents an exceptional prospect to acquire space and total privacy within a unique rural setting! It is also an opportunity to renovate a large family house offering over 4,200 square feet of living space, with ancillary accommodation in the adjacent garage block.
In the same ownership for the past 25 years and a much loved family home to boot, the house is subtly built into a slight incline and is therefore arranged over 3 floors with views across the grounds to the forestry plantation beyond.
Through the arched front door into the impressive hallway with its solid oak staircase rising to a feature galleried landing, the three principal reception rooms are to be found on the raised ground floor with a large games room on the lower ground floor and the first floor boasting a bathroom/shower room for every bedroom!
Further accommodation is to be found in the nearby garage block which has been designed to offer two further receptions, currently in use as a studio and a study, WC and kitchenette
Presented well and easily "ready to move into", the house can also be perceived as a blank canvas for those wishing to place their own stamp on a property. The key appeal will be for the seclusion and closeness to nature, viewings are highly recommended.

Beyond the house, sun terrace and pool, the extensive lawns stretch away from the house, bordered with evergreens and punctuated with shrubbery.
