A handsome period country house, with extensive accommdation and grounds

Toat Hill House is a handsome country property, with six bedrooms and fantastic entertaining space on the ground floor. The property is set in beautiful and extensive gardens, and occupies a peaceful and private position backing onto open fields. On the ground floor there are four generous reception rooms, leading off the hallway offering much flexibility in their use. There is an elegant, comfortable dual aspect drawing room with an impressive open fireplace, a more informal sitting room, a dining room, ideal for entertaining guests or enjoying family meals, and a very generous triple aspect family room with French doors onto the gardens. This space would lend itself very well as a home office. The kitchen breakfast room has splendid wooden units to base and wall level, as well as a central island, marble worktops, an Aga and an integrated double oven and hob. From the welcoming hallway, stairs rise to the first floor where the very generous principal bedroom with its dressing room and an en suite bathroom can be found. There are a further five bedrooms on this floor, one with an en suite and two family bathrooms. On the top floor there is a large open loft space, which could easily be converted into additional living space.

This property has 4.45 acres of land.

The property is approached via a gravel driveway, with ample space to park several cars at the front of the house. The gardens to the rear are delightful and well maintained with a wonderful terrace, with covered seating area ideal for al fresco dining. Immaculate lawns sweep down to the tennis court, with a paddock beyond. The remainder of the formal gardens are bordered by a variety of mature trees and hedging, together with some lovely flower borders and shrubs, creating a sense of peace and seclusion. Agent's Note: There is a separate large field of approximately 6.93 acres adjacent to the property which is available by separate negotiation.
