Property description

Predominantly georgian. Set within a tranquil village location on a plot of approaching 2.5 acres (stls) close to Hanningfield Reservoir is this Listed (Grade II), former ecclesiastical residence with its origins dating back to c.1500's, with later considerable additions completed by 1801. Having now been fully renovated and enhanced, this is a truly wonderful and fine family home, with accommodation approaching 6,000 sq ft, across four floors, including a fully utilised cellar. The home is an enticing mixture of both period elegance with a now contemporary slant.

An extensive array of period features include, hand-tooled cornicing, complementary skirting and architrave, sash windows and shutters, original fireplaces, high ceilings, an easy-rise staircase, polished walnut floors; the list continues, denoting the original splendour of the home.

The current vendors have utilised and enhanced these features to create a home that evokes grandeur yet is ideal for family living and entertaining both inside and out. Numerous receptions - a sitting room, family room, library, study, kitchen/breakfast room, pantry, laundry room, formal dining room, downstairs cloakroom - all radiate from the magnificent entrance hallway and captivating reception vestibule with the original servants "bell pulls".

The home is light-filled and this continues to the first floor where there are five double bedrooms. The master suite, as with many of the others, is dual aspect and enjoys uninterrupted views across the south facing landscaped grounds. The en-suite bathroom has a roll top bath with rainwater shower, elegant twin wash hand basins and high quality sanitary ware. In addition, there is a conveniently located family bathroom. The second floor is again spacious and has been further restored, now comprising one suite, two further bedrooms and a wonderful 32ft family entertainment/ multimedia room.

To the exterior the home offers exceptional recreational opportunities, the landscaped grounds lead to an in-ground swimming pool and a bespoke-built pool house, complete with kitchen/bar area, lounge, changing rooms, walk-in shower, cloakroom, anti-slip tiling and adjacent to the barbecue and additional entertaining area. Across from here is the Tennis Court, fenced and immaculately maintained.

There are several outbuildings which service the home, the largest being the former Coach House and Stabling with adjacent Garaging, perfect for storage but ideal to be further developed (stpp) into an Annexe or Studio.
