A handsome Arts & Crafts country home with beautifully designed gardens and grounds

Built in 1905, Munstead Court is an impressive country residence with later skilful and sympathetic additions.

Internally, the accommodation enjoys a sense of light and space and original features are complemented by well-considered modern additions that blend to create a mix of elegance and style. The property benefits from three entrances, one of which opens into a spacious hallway featuring an impressive stone fireplace with an inset log burner.

Three generously proportioned reception rooms all showcase the property’s charming features, including fireplaces and leaded light windows overlooking the beautiful gardens. The accommodation has been designed to take full advantage of the wonderful outlook and this is particularly evident in the capacious kitchen/breakfast/family room where bi-folding doors to two sides, open up and ‘bring the outside in’. This multi-functional room incorporates a dedicated seating area for relaxation, space for a dining table and a sleek kitchen fitted with an extensive range of units, a large island with an integral breakfast bar and an Aga.

The eastern wing of the house is host to a games room/TV room/second kitchen, pantry, gym, boot room and cloakroom; stairs rise to a study/7th bedroom with an en suite bathroom. This area could be utilised as self-contained guest/au pair accommodation if desired.

The first floor accommodation is equally as well-planned and includes the principal suite comprising a generous bedroom, a dressing room, a sumptuous bathroom and access to a roof terrace. This level is serviced by two staircases, in addition to a passenger lift. There are three additional bedrooms (2 with en suite facilities) on this level, along with a family bathroom and a separate shower room, whilst the upper floor is arranged to provide two bedrooms (1 en suite), a seating area and expansive loft storage space.

This is a rarely available opportunity that will suit the most discerning of buyers, and will cater for those seeking a large family home with flexible and adaptable accommodation. Privacy is a key attribute

This property has 7.44 acres of land.


The sense of arrival is impressive through electrically operated gates opening onto a long sweeping driveway edged with clipped box hedging. To the front of the house is a large walled courtyard providing a spacious parking area and to the side, a garage building contains two garages and a double carport.

The gardens and grounds complement the house perfectly and are designed with expanses of lawn, a stable block and adjacent paddock, well-stocked flower/shrub beds and borders, a parterre style garden, an established pond, an ‘all weather’ tennis court, and unusually, an outdoor bar. Of particular note, and situated off the kitchen/breakfast/family room, is an attractive sunken garden/patio inspired by Gertrude Jekyll.

N.B. It is worth noting that planning permission was granted for the construction of a two-storey side extension and a replacement 4-car garage with ancillary accommodation over. App. No. WA/2010/1945 (Lapsed)
