  • Sale Type: For Sale by Private Treaty
Occupying an idyllic rural position with far reaching panoramic views over the unspoiled countryside, this sophisticated and understated period home offers stylish and contemporary living... Wrought Iron electrically operated sliding gates open to reveal this beautiful home; presented to an exceptional standard, retaining original period features resulting in a wealth of charm and character throughout whilst offering a complimentary contrast of high end bespoke finishes throughout. Simply best in class, this former schoolhouse built in c1860 was remodelled and extended in 2014. Designed by Dermot Bannon and featured on Room To Improve, the two-storey cedar clad extension to the side and a dramatic glazed atrium to the rear, positioned to maximise both light and the views, are particularly noteworthy. The wealth of modern features, including Geothermal underfloor heating are exceptional. The three reception rooms are designed for family living – with the added bonus of an office snug (plumbed for use as a wet room), while the superbly appointed thoroughly modern kitchen will not disappoint.

The three other bedrooms are all double rooms and the family bathroom clad in marble tiles features a roll top bath and separate walk in wet room shower effect.
