With its elegant Queen Anne façade, the house is the epitome of the English county home. The elegant canopied entrance porch, with detailed fan light over, leads into a wonderful and welcoming entrance hall. A short passage leads to a bright reception hall...
with stairs rising to the first floor. A tall window on the half landing fills the hall with light.Either side of the hall are two delightful reception rooms. The formal drawing room, with tall ceilings and a marble fireplace is to the right while the sitting room, to the left, has tall windows and French doors to the garden; this is a cosy room on a winters evening, yet sunny and bright in the summer.At the end of the hall a series of arches lead into the dining room, with lovely old beams from the original farmhouse in evidence. A study can be accessed off the dining room. The farmhouse kitchen is well fitted with old pine units, and a deep inglenook houses a three oven oil-fired Aga. There is ample of space for a large table for informal suppers and family get togethers. A door from the kitchen opens to the garden.Wide, easy rising stairs lead up to the first floor landing. At the front of the house are the principal and guest bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms. Three further bedrooms (one en suite) and a family bathroom complete the accommodation on this floor. The staircase continues to the second floor where there are three additional bedrooms and a bathroom.The long established, mature gardens are an absolute delight. A gravelled driveway off Agester Lane leads to a generous parking and turning area in front of the house. A newly constructed oak-framed building houses an open car port with an adjoining garage.The gardens surround the house on three sides, with each area having an individual character. To the north, sweeping lawns are surrounded by mature trees and shrubs. Behind the house is an alfresco eating area with a timber pergola festooned in climbing roses and clematis. This gives onto a raised lawned area with traditional flower beds stocked with flowering annuals and herbaceous plants. Lovely brick and flint walls lend character and a sense of serenity. To the south, wide lawns and further walled areas combine to create a wonderful setting for this important house.
