Enchanting house in fantastic Capability Brown Gardens

Superb quality Grade II* Listed house set in an idyllic rural setting with distant sea views. 4 bedroom suites in the main house plus 2 bedroom Boat House. Summer house currently used as a studio. Further useful outbuildings.

The Orangery was built in 1740 as a Water House with later designs by Robert Adam . The 18th Century parkland, a magnificent feature of the house, is attributed to Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown.

The house has undergone extensive refurbishment and extension in the last 40 years with the gardens restored and redesigned with the help of the renowned national designer Georgia Langton.

Under its current custodians, all the charm and character has been reinstated to create a fantastic hideaway with many original features.

Of particular note is the dining room which is beautifully crowned with a cupola. As well as being the perfect family home, the house is ideal for entertaining with the dining room opening out to a terrace with views over the parkland and out to sea.

There are 3 guest bedroom suites in the main house. The Boat House sits on the edge of the lake and there is a contemporary Summer House currently used as an art studio. Further useful outbuildings lie away from the house.
