Kingsbridge House is an imposing and handsome, red brick house of traditional style. The property is approached via a generous sweeping gravel drive which provides generous parking for several cars and which has an elegant feature fountain in the middle of a turning circle, directly in front of the house. The gardens and grounds lie largely to the sides and rear of the house and are south facing with a large terraced area wrapping around the house. Having been professionally landscaped, the gardens feature numerous mature trees, shrubs and extensive lawns; which then lead onto open grassland and give the appearance of delightful park-like grounds. At the far end of the property lies the River Loddon with a pretty footbridge over leading to neighbouring land. Kingsbridge House has a number of enviable leisure facilities including a heated swimming pool overlooked by a pretty Breeze House which provides a sheltered spot for enjoying snacks and drinks by the pool, a tennis court, a games room which currently houses a snooker table, and field shelter.
