South House is a wonderful family house of classic Georgian style which dates back to 1780. The property's substantial and flexible accommodation extends over three floors and has been sympathetically updated over recent years with great care taken to preserve and enhance the charm and character associated with a property from this era. Entrance is via a solid panelled front door to a stone flagged reception hall with elegant staircase, and stone steps down to a cellar. The two principal reception rooms are to the front incoporating grand open fireplaces and sash windows. To the rear is a cosy sitting room, again with an open fireplace. The stone flagged kitchen/breakfast room features an Aga and bespoke fitted units with granite/marble worktops and integrated bosch appliances including two dishwashers. Supplementing the kitchen is a large walk-in pantry complete with cold slab. A studded oak door leads to a utility/boot room with cloakroom off and doors to the garden and courtyard.

The first floor incorporates the principal bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further double bedrooms (one with dressing room) and a family bathroom with a rolltop bath and walk-in shower. The oak staircase continues to the second floor where there are three further substantial double bedrooms and a single/box room served by a newly installed and impressive bathroom with oak flooring, panelled walls and a white suite which includes twin hand basins, a rolltop bath and a large shower.

Further to the main house is the former coach house which has been converted to an exceptional standard and now forms a self-contained annexe suitable also for holiday or long lets.

Outside

Gravel driveway approach at the side via automated gates to a parking and turning area, also giving access to the Coach House. Pedestrian access off Main Street with flagstone paviers leading to front door and around the property. The gardens are a delight with many separate but interconnecting areas of interest. A walled garden to the south provides a lawn with an oak framed, state of the art gymnasium complete with air conditioning; the outdoor heated swimming pool is set in a private and secluded position with paved surround, a covered outdoor barbecue and dining area - excellent for entertaining. A series of single storey outbuidings provides a pool house complete with fitted kitchen area and changing room, a wet room with shower and wc, garden stores and a boiler house with twin gas-fired boilers serving the main house and pool. Adjoining the rear of the house is a courtyard with flagstone paviers and brick walls, formerly part of an outbuilding, with pergola and climbing plants and providing a sheltered area ideal for al fresco dining. Beyond are further gardens which lead to a kitchen garden with small vineyard of approximately 80 red and white vines. At the far end of the garden is an all weather tennis court with access from the pool area and overlooking the paddock. The paddock has the remnants of an old orchard with post and rail fencing, a stone boundary wall and gated access onto Farm Lane.
