The house is set off from a country lane. You enter the park through imposing wrought iron gates, and drive into the park. This lovely stone house built in 1600, was once the main manor house and farm for this district. The house faces south, and you look out onto the swimming pool and gardens from all the main receptions rooms, and several of the bedrooms.
Walking into the house through the main door on the south façade, you are in the lovely light and modern open kitchen, fully equipped. This is part of the huge, yet cosy, sitting room, with a wood burning stove, stone walls and vaulted ceilings. The staircase is central in the house. On the other side of the staircase is a cloakroom, and dining room, and a large games room/billiard room. All the floors are original, and have been restored. There are also stairs to the cellar here, and the main hallway.
Up the central stone stairs, on the first floor, are four large bedrooms, the largest of which is 60m2, with glorious views over the garden
On the second floor, there is approx. 100m2 of space which could be additionally renovated, to provide another 4-6 bedrooms…or which could be used purely as storage.
