Highfield House is a substantial period residence offering beautifully presented and extensive family living space extending to over 4000 sq ft. Formerly a pair of cottages this fine family residence boasts versatile accommodation arranged across two floors with impressive principal receptions, practical and adaptable informal rooms, no less than six individual bedrooms serviced by three bathrooms and a luxurious kitchen/breakfast room.
The reception hall reveals a wonderful 'butterfly' staircase and creates a spectacular centrepiece as you enter the property. From here, you can access the formal receptions, which include the dual aspect drawing room and the formal dining room. Additional receptions include a generous study, family room/snug and a spacious dual aspect room (currently used as a gym), which features French doors onto the formal gardens. The kitchen has a sleek contemporary feel with handleless doors and extensive cabinets. The kitchen flows seamlessly through to a breakfast room creating a sociable space ideal for less formal family dining and there is a well-equipped utility room and Guest WC.
The first floor opens up to a substantial galleried landing area, which easily supports uses such as a reading area, library or study space. Double doors from the landing reveal a sumptuous master suite, which incorporates a fitted dressing room and luxurious en suite. There are five further individual double bedrooms all enjoying delightful garden views and serviced by two family sized bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms and a bathroom are designed and laid out in such a way that would allow for an independent apartment if required.
The house sits in glorious landscaped grounds of around 3 acres (sts) which are accessed via a long sweeping carriage driveway. The land has been cleverly designed and sectioned into distinct areas that include formal lawns and terraces, grass tennis court, wooded walks, a unique sunken section that creates a wonderful 'natural amphitheatre', fruit orchard and even a Copper Beech hedged maze. The grounds are surrounded by wooded boundaries and open countryside creating a distinct feel of privacy and seclusion. Further highlights include a heated swimming pool, double garage block and a variety of other garden structures.
