  • Property Details

    Coldharbour House is privately set in unspoilt countryside to the north of Bridge. Centred on a beautifully restored principal house, the property includes a detached secondary cottage, a self-contained flat, stabling and garaging.The Grade II Listed main house dates from the 17th century with an elegant Georgian wing. The juxtaposition of the two periods offers masses of character, with the bright Georgian rooms complementing the intimate and cosy, beamed rooms of the original farmhouse.The principal front door opens to an elegant hall with a gracious staircase to the first floor. To the right is the study, beautifully fitted with cherrywood panelling to dado height and cupboards to either side of the open fireplace. All the joinery in the house is bespoke to the property and has been executed to a fine standard. The triple aspect drawing room faces the hall and is elegantly styled; from the rear corner there is access to an inner hall. A door leads outside and is most commonly used as the “every day” door. Steps lead up to a utility area with bespoke cupboards and an adjoining cloakroom. The kitchen/breakfast room takes up the remainder of the older portion of the house.Wonderfully atmospheric - with beamed ceiling, exposed brickwork and copious cupboards - the handmade kitchen is centred on a granite covered island unit with a breakfast bar. A deep inglenook fireplace houses a 2-oven electric Aga module adjacent to a 2-oven oil-fired Aga. To the left of the fireplace is a unit housing a Gaggenau charcoal grill and a deep fat fryer; all fitted white goods will remain. The dining room is set to one side of the kitchen in a conservatory style room. With glass on three sides the room enjoys lovely views over the adjoining paddocks and garden. The useful cellar is currently arranged as a gym and a work room.The master bedroom suite is beautifully crafted. The bedroom leads through to the en-suite bathroom, which is fully fitted with bespoke oak joinery and has both a shower and a bath, and twin basins set in granite work tops. Beyond is a comprehensively fitted dressing room with every nook and cranny being utilised for storage, with drawers, cupboards and shelves all in limed oak. The remaining first floor accommodation comprises four further bedrooms (one with an en-suite bathroom) and a family bathroom.The Granary and The AnnexeSet a little way across the courtyard is the detached granary building, which was converted by the current owners to provide secondary accommodation. The principal area of the building is given over to a self-contained cottage. A good sized sitting room has lovely views over the paddocks. The farmhouse kitchen is well fitted with extensive cupboards with granite work surfaces over. The first floor accommodation has three bedrooms (one en-suite) and a family bathroom.Adjoining The Granary is a self-contained flat with a sitting room and kitchen, together with a bedroom and a bathroom. The two units have been designed so that they could, with minimal work, be incorporated into one larger cottage.Approached over a long, tree lined drive to a parking area to the side of the house, Coldharbour House sits centrally in its grounds and has lovely views over the paddocks and meadows. The stable block and garaging are set further down the drive. The garage is currently arranged as four garages and an adjoining workshop.The stable block is a substantial “C” shaped building formed around a courtyard. It comprises five stables, a hay barn, a foaling box, a tack room, a store room with WC and a large tractor store. Just across from here is the all-weather manege.The land is principally divided into two blocks: a large grass field to the east of the drive and a series of smaller enclosures to the west of the buildings t
