Woodlands is a substantial family house, which has been re-imagined and renovated with flair, and great attention to detail. There is a clear sense of design which has achieved an excellent flow of accommodation combining large comfortable rooms with a relaxing atmosphere of well-appointed informality. It is surrounded by landscaped gardens, and located on the edge of the sought after village of Westcott. Internally, the house offers spacious accommodation, with high ceilings and large windows flooding the property with light. There are attractive fireplaces and the elegant staircase and hall are again bathed in light from the glazed roof lantern above. The principal rooms have a southerly aspect, with attractive bay windows drawing the eye towards the surrounding hills. A modern, well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room is ideally suited for informal family living with both sitting and dining areas, and bi-fold doors to the south facing terrace. In addition on the ground floor there is an elegant drawing room, family room, study, utility room, and a large boot room, as well as a guest bedroom suite. The first floor is arranged with six bedrooms, five bathrooms, and the laundry room.
The gardens at Woodlands are a particular feature of the property. Wrought iron gates, with an entry system, open onto a drive that winds up between lawns, with shrub and flower borders, evergreen hedges and mature trees, to arrive at a parking and turning area below the house. From here, steps lead up to the entrance porch. The drive continues beside the house to a further parking area and double carport adjoining the back door. There is a detached triple garage. A south facing terrace has views through the wooded boundary to the north slopes of Leith Hill. The rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a variety of ornamental trees, hedges and fruit trees and a border
of light woodland along the eastern boundary. At the end of the garden, there is brick built stable block comprising two boxes and a tack room, whilst, further on, there is a hard tennis court.
