Victorian house with exceptional secluded gardens.
This pretty Victorian house with an array of outbuildings is tucked away from view and has been architecturally extended and reconfigured under the stewardship of the current owners to create this unique home. The layout and generous room sizes can be seen in greater detail on the attached floorplan.
The house is approached through an iron gate beside a partly walled, partly fenced boundary with mature shrubs. A gravel drive splits to the left to a turning circle and the main house, and to the right (with a yew hedge border that provides separate access to the swimming pool, gym and office buildings).
On entering the house, one is immediately struck by the natural light and the property's privacy. The glazed porch, which sets the standard for the house, was added by the current owners and opens into a wide hall with marble tiles. To the left of the hall is a study with a fitted mahogany desk and bookshelves, and views over the front garden. T
To the rear, the hall opens into a well-appointed kitchen breakfast room with an array of integrated high end appliances including a Neff steam oven, Bosch double oven and dishwasher. There are modern shaker style floor and wall mounted cabinets with marble and granite work surfaces, and a large breakfast table which sits next to French doors leading out to the garden. To the right of the kitchen the large dining room has a stone ornamental fireplace and a fully glazed window with views of the garden.
Beyond is an exceptional architect designed Garden room with a working fireplace, spiral staircase to the upper floors and underfloor heating allowing year round use.
On the lower ground floor, accessed from the hall or the garden room, is a study, second plant room and large store room. At the half landing there is a drawing room, accessible from both the garden room and the hall, with internal windows for light and views over the garden, working shutters and attractive period cornicing.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms, two of which are en suite. On the second floor is an exceptional principal bedroom which has extensive built in wardrobes, a large dressing area, a seating area with an ornamental fireplace, and a terrace with stunning views over the garden. The fourth bedroom and en suites are also on the second floor.
Outside the gardens of the White House are exceptional having been designed by the world renowned Garden designer John Brooks. It offers great privacy because of the wide variety of specimen trees deep borders with perennial plants and shrubs and at the far end large ponds. The swimming pool and gym building has been designed to look like a cricket pavilion, which houses a heated pool with a swim jet at one end and a Jacuzzi at the other. Additionally there is also a sauna, shower and cloakroom.
There is a further outbuilding which was remodelled and rebuilt by the current owners as a home office on the first floor, with an office plus a small office/store room and two garages on the ground floor.
