An elegant and imposing country house of magnificent proportions, dating from the late 19th century with later additions, set amidst beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds.
The accommodation is extensive and versatile, laid out over three floors and includes a splendid conservatory and indoor swimming pool.
A vast galleried entrance hall gives an excellent first impression and leads to the generously proportioned reception rooms which feature high ceilings, heavy panelled wooden doors with brass fittings and some beautiful marble fireplaces. Of particular note are the drawing, dining and family rooms which all enjoy views of the gardens and grounds.
The kitchen / breakfast room offers a substantial open plan family area, walk in larder, original wrought iron range and granite work surfaces. Double doors lead out to the conservatory and in turn to the indoor swimming pool, which has been loosely based on the architectural design of the domed glass ceiling at Crystal Palace. The terrace, ideal for entertaining, is found off the conservatory with sensational views towards Canary Wharf.
An elegant dividing staircase leads up to a galleried landing. The accommodation on this floor comprises a master suite with two dressing areas and a well appointed en-suite bathroom, five further bedrooms and a flat with a kitchen, sitting room and bedroom suite. The second floor offers much potential, and is currently laid out as a large sitting room and three bedrooms.
Gardens And Grounds
Homefield is approached via electric wrought iron gates. A gravel drive sweeps up to the front of the house and then continues around the east of the property where there is further parking and the double garage.
The landscaped gardens and grounds provide a delightful parkland setting, with mature specimen shrubs, trees and rhododendrons. Large expanses of lawn are surrounded by well-established borders and brick pathways which stretch away from the house. A walled croquet lawn and floodlit tennis court are to the north east of the house.
