Property DetailsImpressive family home, with equestrian facilities set in a very convenient yet rural location
With the original part of the house thought to date back to 1696, Mutehill has been beautifully renovated and extended by the present owners to create an impressive two-storey, family, country home with spacious and flexible accommodation designed to make the most of its south-facing position and views over to the Cleish Hills.
At the front, double doors open into a large, welcoming reception hall, off which are the principal public rooms, all of which are south-facing. To one side, a large sitting room with bay window leads through to an impressive games/family room, which has patio doors leading to the garden. On the other side of the hall is a second sitting room with bay window, which could also be used as a formal dining room. The farmhouse-style kitchen has an array of base and wall units, a useful island unit, timber work tops and a 4-oven, oil-fuelled AGA. From the kitchen is the working end of the house, including a laundry/utility room, plant room, and W.C. A recently completed sunroom gives access to the rear section of the house as well as providing more sitting and dining space. Adjacent to the sunroom is a large office, which has bespoke Neville Johnson fitted furniture, and a further W.C.
On the first floor there is a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, a guest bedroom with en suite, a further 4 spacious bedrooms (2 of which share a Jack & Jill en suite) and a family bathroom.
The attention to detail is evident throughout the house with features such as oak doors and surrounds on the ground floor, contemporary shower and bathrooms with fitted furniture and rain sensors on the Velux windows in the sunroom, to mention but a few.
It should be noted that the original west wing of the house was demolished and sympathetically re-built in 2009/10.
Mutehill is approached by an electric gate then on to a private drive, which was resurfaced around 6 years ago, and leads to a large parking area, which sits to the rear and side of the house.
The gardens and grounds provide a private and peaceful setting for Mutehill and extend to around 15 acres. The more formal section of the garden is to the east and features a large area of lawn surrounded by mature shrub and flower borders. To the front of the house is a large patio area, ideal for al fresco dining, entertaining and just relaxing and taking in the views. To the north is a 3 acre paddock, bounded on one side by mature trees and a small stream.
Mutehill is ideal for those involved in equestrian pursuits and includes:
5 timber loose boxes, all with automatic water supply;
Store and tack room;
2 moveable field shelters;
Gated enclosed yard.
The land at Mutehill is split into 4 paddocks and garden ground and totals just under 15 acres.
In addition to the above, there are 2 double garages with power and light, 1 of which has been built recently and has an automatic door, and there is a large tractor shelter. There are 2 fully enclosed chicken runs with 1 henhouse.
