2 Bedroom House Under Offer

Originating from a place called Home Wood in the early 13th century, the park was established and landscaped in the early 18th century, gradually evolving to what we see today. Owned by the Earls of Jersey for many generations, the mansion house from the 1750s was demolished in 1935 to be replaced 'with no expense spared' by a new design by Edwin Lutyens, the world-famous architect of designs as diverse and evocative as Thiepval Arch and the Cenotaph, both WW1 memorials, and the HQ of the British Medical Association. His bold building incorporated many forward-thinking ideas from underfloor heating in bathrooms to a central heating system supplied from the cellar. Everywhere the design is consummate in its expression of sublime architecture, but it is also practical with lifts, easy stairs and vast windows. The two Garden Flats occupy a wonderful position separate from the main house hence deliciously secluded, looking out over lengthy areas of lawn to the rear of the park with some beautiful mature trees, and beyond the estate there is little save for rolling farmland. To live in such a place is a privilege.

The entrance to the house can be via main door or garden courtyard. Coming in from the main door leads into a bright and inviting hallway with a handy store cupboard off to the right, followed by a smart modern W.C. Off to the left, the kitchen has been refitted and remodelled, now providing really comprehensive storage in a set of modern units running round three sides. The glazed window and door to the end bring in exceptional natural light so the room feels positive at all times, and the door opens out onto the garden which encourages you to use it all the time. Next door, the dining room is perfectly proportioned for a good sized table and chairs with ample room remaining for sideboard/ dresser etc, and it's glazed double doors opening onto the garden. Note while its current use is what a new owner will probably also do, there is no reason this could not be a third bedroom if desired. Continue through the inner hallway and take a right, leading into the living room. For us, this is the star of the accommodation. It is spacious and well proportioned enough to accommodate a large suite. Two floor to ceiling sash windows also provide a view out across the parkland. Few properties of any type can offer such a wonderful outlook.
