A charming Grade 2 listed country house and separate barn cottage with an array of outbuildings, swimming pool and tennis court set within approximately 15 acres of gardens and pasture land.
Approached up a long tree-lined driveway within a secluded setting, this 8-bedroom house in the Elizabethan Tudor style has 17th century origins and is unusually spacious at 7,050 square feet. The separate 3-bedroom home converted from a barn comprises a further 2,325 square feet. A large storage shed would be useful for a selection of different uses (90ft x 40ft). The grounds, bordered by woodland and a river, incorporate an outdoor pool, tennis court, formal gardens and paddocks.
The 8-bedroom, 5-bathroom (2 ensuite) house features a number of large fire places, flagstone floors, parquetry floors, vaulted and beamed ceilings and both sash and lead light windows.
A formal entrance hall for entertaining leads to a range of formal and informal reception rooms including drawing room, sitting room, dining room, games room, library, eat-in kitchen and office. Throughout there is an historic charm but the property feels very much like the family home which it has been.
The adjacent Thames Water facility is out of sight, Screened behind woodland. The vendor says “I have not, in the 24 years we have owned the property, ever smelt the facility, we have entertained a lot on the back terrace and you would not know that it was there”.
An outdoor swimming pool is sheltered within a courtyard garden with an adjacent party barn. Major reception rooms overlook the terrace to the paddocks and tree line beyond the river. It really is an idyllic rural outlook in a fantastically convenient location.
