Lawn House is a beautifully presented, 4 bedroom detached modern country home standing in gardens and grounds of about 5.9 acres including a large lake. Set in an idyllic rural location, tucked well away from main roads and traffic noise.
Lawn House extends in total to about 2600 square feet of living space, with the majority of the accommodation arranged on the ground floor. The first floor is primarily a guest bedroom suite incorporating an en suite bathroom and balcony.
SUPERB OPEN COUNTRY VIEWS
Lawn House was originally built in 2003, but since then no expense has been spared to create a very traditional country home.
The property is approached through secure electric gates, which lead into a large courtyard with a central feature roundabout.
There is a large ‘L’ shaped entrance hall having a feature slate floor and full height glass screens overlooking the front gardens. In addition, there are full height hardwood screens overlooking a shingle terrace.
The superb living room has a stone fireplace (inset wood burning stove,) and sliding doors lead to a large entertaining terrace, with views onto the formal gardens.
The ground floor has 3 good sized bedrooms, with the main bedroom having an en suite bathroom, and sliding doors leading to a private balcony with a superb view onto the lake. In addition, there is a family shower room which is beautifully appointed.
An outstanding feature of the ground floor is a magnificent kitchen with high vaulted ceilings and exposed A-framed timbers. The kitchen has a highly individual polished granite work top, and matching island work station with curved surfaces making a real feature. The units are of a light oak, and there is a whole range of built-in appliances including Neff twin ovens, touch control ceramic hob, extractor, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and microwave. Also, there is a breakfast bar for 2, and a large family area with space for a table and 6 chairs. 2 pairs of sliding doors lead to an entertaining terrace and garden, with a lovely outlook over the grounds.
A half turn staircase leads to an impressive landing on the first floor, with a glass wall overlooking the gardens.
The guest bedroom has sliding doors to its own private balcony having a superb outlook over the formal gardens and beyond. There is an en suite bathroom.
Outside, there is a detached double garage (with electric doors,) and an adjacent concrete pad for further garaging. There are excellent parking facilities for vehicles/boxes/trailers etc.
Lawn House is approached via a wide driveway, with a large, grass meadow to the right hand side enclosed by an established tree line (mainly of oak.) The driveway is flanked by a beech hedge, and the front garden area has a large, flat lawn enclosed by established borders with a variety of rhododendrons. Also, there is an established willow and oak tree.
A second vehicular entrance (with ledged and braced double entrance gates) comes off Slough Lane leading to a stone driveway.
The main garden area lies to the south side of the house, where there is a large, split level entertaining terrace with wrought iron gates leading to the garden. Beyond, there is a low, boxed hedge which surrounds a small area of lawn, enclosed on both sides by a wide variety of flowers.
Wrought iron gates lead to a large, mowed paddock enclosed by hedgerows and a tree line interspersed with willow and oak.
There is a large, timber workshop and raised cloches. Gravel pathways lead through to the lake, which has a stone bridge over. The lake is enclosed by a wide variety of specimen trees including bamboo, grasses and spindle wood. There is a lovely walk on all sides of the lake.
The main driveway from the front of the house continues by the side of the garage, and leads to a second courtyard. There is a large, detached barn (with roller door,) and extends to about 2000 square feet. The barn is sub-divided to create office and storage space. Adjacent, there is open-fronted garaging and stores.
