About this property

TENURE: Freehold

  • Equestrian

EQUESTRIAN - Elegant Queen Anne style country house surrounded by two acres of beautiful gardens, with six acres of additional paddock land.

Built in 1913, the house was commissioned by Viscount Dunedin for his daughter as a wedding present. Subsequently, with happy longevity there have only been four owners, including the actress Googie Withers and her husband John McCallum. Constructed in the Queen Anne style, using red brick under a red tiled roof, the traditional layout is well arranged with the main reception rooms all facing in a southerly direction with Georgian style sash windows overlooking the gardens. The rooms are classically proportioned, providing excellent family accommodation and space for formal entertaining. Interesting internal features include the original wood parquet flooring, traditional mouldings, open fireplaces, antique fire backs and marble slips.

The principal ground floor rooms open off the impressive reception hall with its panelled walls and elegant staircase. The dual aspect drawing room is delightfully light and in common with the sitting room and study, it has open fireplaces and French doors to the terrace. The dining room has a door to the east garden and it adjoins the kitchen/breakfast room which opens to the conservatory, with views of the gardens on all sides.

The beautifully carved oak staircase rises to the generous landing and the five first floor bedrooms. The principal bedroom is spacious with a large en suite bathroom and a separate dressing room, which could offer a further bedroom. The remaining four characterful bedrooms are served by two family bathrooms.

Self-contained Staff/Guest Annexe

Approached from the rear hall or by a separate access beside the garages, the annexe makes ideal au pair accommodation or an “escape” for teenage children. Accommodation comprises a hall, sitting/dining room with a bay window, kitchen and a bedroom with en suite bathroom.

The Mirrie is situated in a fabulous rural location, as only one of two houses, on this private no through road. Flanked by rolling fields, the house has its own private 6 acre paddock opposite. The house lies 2 miles from Denham Green which caters for day-to-day shopping needs and Denham Station (London Marylebone 24 minutes). Nearby Gerrards Cross offers a more comprehensive range of shops, recreational facilities and rail service (London Marylebone 18 minutes). Sporting facilities include the adjoining Denham Golf Club as well as Harewood Downs and Stoke Park Country Club. Racing is on offer at Ascot, Windsor and Kempton Park and the area is also known for an extensive network of footpaths and bridle paths. Excellent state and private schooling is provided for all ages - further information can be sourced via www.buckscc.gov.uk, www.southbucks.gov.uk, www.ofsted.gov.uk or www.schools-search.co.uk.

The property is approached through a pair of brick piers to a gravel driveway and a turning circle with a separate spur to the garages. The gardens and grounds surround the house on all sides and are an absolute delight. A large terrace spans the south side of the house, creating an attractive setting for summer entertaining. The lawn is flanked by yew hedges and a magnificent cedar tree stands in pride of place. A mature rhododendron garden shelters the swimming pool and pool house. To the east of the house, lawned gardens are surrounded by herbaceous borders and are overlooked by a charming Gothic folly with a thatched roof. The scene is completed with an apple orchard, a lavender parterre and a cutting bed. The garage block provides space for two cars and, between the two garages, a garden store is located and there is a separate WC. Additional outbuildings include a potting shed and a greenhouse.
