EQUESTRIAN - The Old Garden House is a substantial and beautifully presented family house, surrounded by its landscaped gardens, and situated on this highly sought after private road in the village of Mickleham.
The bright accommodation flows well with a good balance of both more and less formal rooms on the ground floor, comprising sitting room, dining room, family room, and a lovely kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga and a notable glazed roof lantern which floods the room with sunlight. There is a separate utility room, and a cloakroom/wc. From the family room, a connecting door gives access to annexed accommodation, with a bedroom and shower room, and a kitchen/utility room. This is currently used as a home office.
Upstairs, the 6 bedrooms all have a delightful outlook over the gardens, and lovely south westerly views to Ranmore. The main bedroom has an ensuite shower room and a fitted dressing room next door/bedroom 6 if preferred. There is then a further ensuite bedroom and a family bathroom on the first floor, and 3 further bedrooms and a family shower room on the second floor.
This property is featured by our Equestrian department.
