Believed to date to the 16th Century and showcasing exceptional period charm throughout, Landguard House offers an immaculately presented, elegant living environment, with versatile, well-proportioned accommodation arranged over three floors. Providing an exquisite home perfectly suited to both entertaining and modern family lifestyles, the property is set back from the road in the heart of the village, with stunning gardens offering far-reaching countryside views.

Five refined reception areas on the ground floor provide comfortable, flexible spaces in which to relax; the welcoming office/library; a formal dining room offering the ideal setting to host family and friends; the sitting room with wood burner offering a cosier environment in which to unwind; and an impressive drawing room having direct access into the light-filled conservatory with picturesque garden views. With contemporary cabinetry and a stylish bespoke design to complement the property’s vintage, the kitchen offers a sociable heart to this home, centred around an Aga stove, with an island unit and open apertures to the adjoining breakfast/family room. Just beyond, is a practical boot room and a good sized utility room with cloakroom beside.

Two staircases rise to the first floor where elevated views over the gardens can be appreciated, and rooms comprise four bedrooms and a modern family bathroom. The principal bedroom offers a luxurious retreat, with decorative fireplace, spacious dressing area, a free-standing bathtub and en suite shower room, whilst the second bedroom has comparable en suite facilities. A further stairway gives access to the top of the house where an additional bedroom and study area are situated. A large attic space currently provides ample internal storage but also offers potential for the addition of a further bathroom.

The garden and grounds at Landguard House are particularly noteworthy, being beautifully designed and planted with an attractive selection of shrubs and perennial plants. Features include a formal water feature, low and high level, manicured hedging, deep colourful borders, expanses of lawn and low brick walls which edge terracing. Majestic mature trees and specimen trees interspersed within the grassed areas create dappled shade and post-and-wire-rail fencing at the boundary afford an uninterrupted outlook and a sense of a borrowed landscape.

To the rear of the property is a versatile outbuilding offering a myriad of uses. Currently used as a cinema/entertainment room with snooker room beside, gym, store and potting shed, the outbuilding makes an ideal area for entertaining but could also offer potential for conversion subject to the necessary consents.
