A beautifully presented Victorian house, standing in a magnificent elevated rural position. About 10.5 acres.

Outside

The gardens and grounds are a particular feature and provide an exceptional setting for the property. From the minor country lane, wrought iron gates give way to a sweeping gravel driveway, which winds through the grounds providing a magnificent approach and is bordered on one side by the property's two lakes, mature oaks, beech and willows.

Situated a short distance from the main house, is a courtyard complex formed by the detached two bedroom cottage, garden store/workshop, three loose boxes and a three-bay garage with a loft room above.

Immediately adjacent to the drawing room is a wide paved terrace bordered by balustrading. The terrace continues around to the rear of the house, from which steps lead up to a sheltered swimming pool set into a paved surround.

The remainder of the formal gardens are laid to sweeping expanses of lawn with various well-stocked borders and clipped hedges.

The gardens and grounds at The Spinney provide an exceptional and secluded setting for this beautiful period house.

About 10.5 acres.
