Property description

The Spinney is an exceptional late Victorian country house, which provides elegant, well-proportioned and beautifully presented accommodation arranged over three floors. The property has been sympathetically improved by the current owner with a great attention to detail.

Features within the house include a wide flagstone floor in the entrance lobby, an impressive double height entrance hall with a lovely oak staircase, oak panelled doors, an impressive marble fireplace in the drawing room, intricate coving and double glazed windows. A particular feature of the property is the magnificent kitchen/breakfast room, which is fitted with an extensive range of bespoke cream painted units with polished granite work surfaces and a walk-in larder. The reception rooms are ideally arranged for formal and informal entertaining, and are complemented over the first and second floors by nine bedrooms and six bath/shower rooms. In addition to the main house, is a pretty detached two bedroom cottage.

The gardens and grounds are a particular feature and provide an exceptional setting for the property. From the minor country lane, wrought iron gates give way to a sweeping gravel driveway, which winds through the grounds providing a magnificent approach and is bordered on one side by the property's two lakes, mature oaks, beech and willows.

Situated a short distance from the main house, is a courtyard complex formed by the detached two bedroom cottage, garden store/workshop, three loose boxes and a three-bay garage with a loft room above.

Immediately adjacent to the drawing room is a wide paved terrace bordered by balustrading. The terrace continues around to the rear of the house, from which steps lead up to a sheltered swimming pool set into a paved surround.

The remainder of the formal gardens are laid to sweeping expanses of lawn with various well-stocked borders and clipped hedges.

The gardens and grounds at The Spinney provide an exceptional and secluded setting for this beautiful period house.

About 10.5 acres.
