Description

Once a traditional granite farm in the countryside, this stunning 10,500 sq ft home now combines the beauty of traditional pink Jersey granite with modern day living, having been subject to a major renovation in 2014 that included new roof, rebuilt insulated walls, latest heating, plumbing, electrical systems and new flooring.



Today, it will appeal to discerning owners who seek privacy, security, various external spaces for entertaining, including the beautiful Italian style garden, and plentiful and varied internal accommodation for a family and guests.



This country estate is set amidst 10 acres of equine land and occupies high ground with 360 degree open country views. The house, which has date stones inset, including one from 1659, faces directly south and benefits from plenty of light from windows south and north.

What were previously granite cottages adjoining the main house, have now been incorporated into the home to provide extended, spacious open plan eating, dining and living space, whilst a formal dining room, and a library with the original exposed granite fireplace with log burner, add to the charm of the accommodation.



The large kitchen is by Charles York and includes an electric AGA and centre island. This is the heart of the home from where all the various living and dining rooms are connected, providing a wonderful flow.



There are eight stylish and luxuriously furnished bedrooms in total, five of which are in the main house, all of generous size, and two of which are on the second floor.



The ensuite bathrooms have been lavishly equipped by luxury bathroom supplier, C P Hart, with stylish baths, including a large feature bath by Spanish designer Jaime Hayon, as well as large showers. A pair of inset washbasin stands, also by Jaime Hayon, add to the unique design of the bathrooms.



A large original granite barn has been cleverly linked to the main house by a glass, floor to ceiling living area that overlooks the pretty courtyard to the east and the swimming pool and patio via sliding glass doors, to the west.



This room is light and spacious with tiled floor, a feature gas fire and provides for an ideal room to enjoy summer days in and out of the pool and the evening sun.



The linked converted barn provides a variety of additional space including a contemporary second 'cooks' kitchen by Minotticucine, boot room, storage rooms, an entertainment room, plus gym/home office with its own external access. It also includes a changing room and shower room with direct access to the swimming pool.



Upstairs are three large ensuite bedrooms with contemporary bathroom fittings by Philppe Starck and walk-in wardrobes, ideal for adult family members or guests.



There are lawned areas to the south and west for maximum sunshine hours. The south facing garden has been carefully designed in the Italian Tuscany style and features two large lawned areas and a patio close to the living and dining area.



As one would expect with this comprehensively designed house, the external areas are irrigated and have lighting installed and have the benefit of Sonos speakers externally, as well as internally.



THE COTTAGE - For staff or guests there is also a one bedroom south facing cottage adjoining the property.



GARAGES - There is an open four car garage as well as another two car garage, the latter having internal access to the property.



This country estate provides varied and generous accommodation and no expense has been spared by the owners who have brought it to modern day standards, thereby offering it in walk-in condition. It represents great value and should be viewed early.







TECHNICAL INFORMATION



This home has been extensively renovated and a great amount of forward thinking has been applied to ensure that it is heated economically by way of a Building Management System.



The Heatmiser heating system ensures hot water circulates 24/7 from the two 500 litre water tanks. Air source heat pumps operate the wet underfloor ground floor heating throughout and there are also gas boilers for the upstairs radiators in the main farmhouse for winter. Solar panels on the barn extension provide most of the hot water as well as heating the swimming pool. All are housed in a purpose made plant room for convenient access and efficient maintenance.



The energy costs for such a large property demonstrate the attention to energy efficiency and carbon usage in the design of the property renovation.



The programmable lighting system is Cebus to the main house and Lutron in the barn wing.



There is a well in the drive that serves to irrigate the gardens, whilst the entire property is connected to mains water and mains drains.

Three phase electricity, high speed fibre broadband, CCTV and an alarm system which can be monitored remotely, add to the extremely thorough and comprehensive attention that has been given during the renovation.



All windows are double glazed and there are internal plantation shutters throughout.
