The rooms display a wonderful array of character and features including panelling; a magnificent inglenook fireplace; exposed timber framing and solid oak doors.The principle reception rooms enjoy views across the formal gardens and down the front drive; whilst, to the rear, are the bespoke fitted airy family Aga kitchen/breakfast room and contemporary rear hall/conservatory enjoying views across the open lawns to the rear and woodland beyond. To the side, overlooking the lake are a tranquil study and sitting/media room retreat. On the first floor are seven delightful bedrooms of varying styles; two of which are on suite, a family bathroom and a family shower room.Electrically operated wrought iron gates open on to a gravelled drive, flanked by sweeping lawns and an established productive orchard, leading through a Yew hedge and opening onto to a gravelled sweep with central lawned turning circle in front of the house.To the sides and rear are established lawned gardens with a broad terrace abutting the house offering sheltered entertaining and lovely views across the grounds. The lawns then open onto meadows, studded by a wide variety of mature trees, both coniferous and deciduous, through which Martels Brook with its ornamental waterfall meanders, linking with the original moat, together with a screened “secret garden” and a hard tennis court. A private automatic, lake fed, watering system has been subtly incorporated into the water features.Within the grounds are an excellent range of traditional and contemporary outbuildings; these offer extensive storage facilities and the option to further develop into entertaining areas or, indeed, ancillary accommodation (subject to any necessary consents). There are also useful secondary accesses; the substantial detached garage containing aa insulated wine cellar and separate W.C. is beside one.The grounds are enclosed and protected by mature light woodland and back directly onto the surrounding undulating open countryside.
