Luxurious living spaces of incredibly generous proportions, set in 0.75 acre with exceptional views.
Located in a conservation area and with beautiful countryside views, Chestnut House offers luxurious living spaces of incredibly generous proportions, high ceilings and six bedrooms, within 0.75 acres of beautiful established gardens.
This exceptional and substantial property, with in excess of 4,200sq ft of internal living space, dates back to 1870 and still retains a sense of dramatic opulence with an abundance of original period features, such as large sash windows and fireplaces.
There are four principle reception rooms, two of which have particularly fine views of the gardens from large bay windows with french doors. The fifth living area comprises a beautiful and very large conservatory adjoining the kitchen and has a combined length of 32ft. The kitchen has been beautifully appointed, with bespoke hand painted solid wood units with oak worktops, a black AGA and a large central island with both an oak and granite work surface.
An adjoining pantry and utility room also feature matching bespoke handmade cupboards and work surfaces, providing excellent storage for a large family. A large boot room comprising a range of bespoke hand painted cupboards with a similar theme to the kitchen, and a large shower room in the same style, completes the ground floor accommodation. In the basement there is a cellar with generous head room and a wine store.
There are a total of six bedrooms on the two upper floors. Five of the bedrooms are on the first floor together with a large bathroom and a separate shower room all of which are connected by an impressively large landing and second staircase which leads down to the kitchen.
A lovely large dual aspect sixth Bedroom can be found on the 2nd floor and is currently used as a home office.
Outside, the beautiful gardens are established and interesting, with expansive areas of lawn, elegant terraces, mature trees, a swimming pool and stunning lavender garden complete with Hartley Botanical Victorian Glasshouse. The plot benefits from from a glorious south easterly aspect and picturesque countryside walks are quite literally on the doorstep, with a rear gate taking you into beautiful, open farmland and public footpaths.
To the front and side of the property a gated gravel drive provides extensive car parking, and there is also a double garage. A Victorian wash house, complete with its original 'copper' provides excellent additional storage and a potting shed and log store.
