This immaculate restored home is situated within a gated compound, enjoying absolute privacy and with a sweeping garden and grandiose facade.

To the rear of the kitchen is a service entrance and pantry. To this south wing there are also 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. Both bedrooms have direct access to the garden, so could be used as an independent guest or staff apartment.
Upstairs there is an extensive mezzanine with glass balconies and banisters ensuring a wonderful continuous feeling of space. From the mezzanine there is access to the rear gardens and parkland. Library area and in the north wing a master bedroom suite with lovely views overlooking both the formal gardens to the front of the property and the parkland to the rear, with dressing room and bathroom.

Leading off the driveway and parking area is the original stables converted into a large fully insulated and glazed garage of 165m2 with tiled flooring, shower room and large feature doors. The current owners use this open plan space as an office and could be converted to a separate apartment thanks to plumbing and electricity already being in place and plenty of natural light.
