EQUESTRIAN - An inspired and beautifully crafted family house where extensions and re-design have resulted in a flow of accommodation which expertly blends the older part of the house with the new. From the vaulted entrance hall there is access to two lovely reception rooms with inglenook open fireplaces, one with a log-burning stove. Solid oak flooring and custom made double glazed windows are a theme that run through the property and there is underfloor heating in the newer parts, particularly in the kitchen and the family room. The kitchen features an AIMS electric 3 oven Aga with a 2 oven module, and bespoke fitted units with granite work-surfaces. There is Lutron programmable lighting. It is fully fitted with steam and microwave ovens together with a warming drawer, and under counter fridge and dishwasher. There is a separate utility with space for the fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer, a storeroom and French doors out to the garden, via a small conservatory/boot room. The family room is a large bright room just off the kitchen. It has bi-fold doors with direct access to the garden, a separate door from the front and access to a useful ground floor additional wet-room. Up the main staircase an extremely generous landing leads to five bedrooms and the family bathroom. All the bedrooms are of excellent proportions, fitted with bespoke hand-made wardrobes, and look out over the surrounding gardens. The main bedroom suite is large enough to incorporate a comfortable sitting area, a luxuriously fitted ensuite wet-room and a separate walk-in wardrobe/dressing room. The bedroom itself features a delightful Juliette balcony with a wonderful view out over the rear gardens. Above the attached garage and accessed via a separate spiral staircase there is an excellent room with an ensuite wet-room. This is currently used as a sixth bedroom but is also space for a study. Overall, the high quality of materials, workmanship, design and attention to detail are evident, resulting in a unique and very comfortable home.

Adjoining the house, a large paved terrace is a sheltered sun-trap, ideal for outdoor dining and entertaining and has lovely views out over the wider gardens. A path leads to the Arctic Cabin which can seat up to 15 and features an indoor barbecue.
