Property DetailsAn historic Georgian house offering extensive accommodation and beautiful grounds, in a very private position.Syrencot House is a Grade II listed house which has been added to over the centuries. In the 1700s a three story extension was added, with further extensions in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. The result is a house full of character, offering extensive and flexible accommodation. Steeped in history the house has been in the ownership of the Dyke-Poores during the 19th century and at the turn of the century was purchased by the British Army. During part of the Second World War the house was the military residence of Lt Gen Browning, General Sir Richard Gale, and Lord Alanbrooke and saw the planning and mounting of Operation Overlord, in particular the plans for the taking of Pegasus Bridge. The current owners have lovingly restored the house since they bought it in 2000 which includes rewiring, plumbing, re-plastering and a new roof. They have also reconfigured the rooms to create a house that suits modern day living.Entering the ground floor through the pillared portico the hallway links the four ages of the house. To the left, in the Georgian part, are the formal reception rooms which have high ceilings and large sash windows allowing the light to flood in. At the back of the house is a garden room with ceiling lantern. This would make an ideal family kitchen. To the right of the hall in the oldest part of the house is a sitting room and library both with open fires and one with doors opening out to therear garden.On the first floor is the impressive master bedroom which has retained the original wood shutters andwood panelled walls.

To the front of the house is a turning circle and large areas of lawn. Growing against the house are wisteria and climbing roses. The remainder of the front is laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees and hidden away is a large open bay barn which could be converted into stables.Behind the house is the garden with formal flower beds and lawn. There are two terraces adjacent tothe house with views over the field (a water meadow) and towards the River Avon. To the side of the house is a large walled garden approaching an acre in size which is mostly laid to lawn with flower beds against the walls, fruit trees, a potting shed with water and electricity and a green house. There are also garden plans by landscape designer George Cartier available.In courtyards either side of the house are two large barns, the first constructed of brick andcorrugated iron elevations and roof, the other built of metal.
