An outstanding comtemporary family house with far reaching views

South Over is an elegant, contemporary family home which is presented to a very high standard throughout. The central hallway is the main feature on arrival with a welcoming woodburning stove and bespoke staircase leading up to the first floor. Fabulous reception rooms look out over the formal gardens, terraces and sweeping lawns. Of particular note is the open plan kitchen/breakfast room which is well appointed and fitted with an Aga, and has a fabulous orangery roof and bi-fold doors leading to the terracing, allowing a seamless flow between inside and out. Also of note, is the cinema room fitted with a projector and screen and surround sound speakers. Upstairs on the first floor, the bedrooms do not disappoint. The generous principal bedroom suite has a dressing room with ample closet space and en suite and also benefits from a large glass balcony, making this the ultimate vantage point to take in the views. A guest bedroom suite and 3 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom can also be found on this floor.

This property has 38.58 acres of land.


South Over is set in a stunning elevated position with spectacular, far reaching views over its own grounds and beyond. The property is approached via electric gates to the drive, which provides ample parking, along with the triple garage; currently set up as a gym/ games room with storage area above. The formal gardens of about 2.5 acres are mainly laid to lawn, with mature trees, shrubs and flower borders, including the Olive garden on the decked terrace. The paved terraces provide the ideal location for outside entertaining, with the swimming pool a few steps below. Beyond the formal gardens, which are deer fenced, are about 18 acres of private woodland and paddock, with lake and log cabin, all completely screened for privacy and seclusion. Beyond the lake, a gate provides access to the remaining 18 acres of woodland, with public footpath.
