A beautiful Grade II Listed Georgian country house with stunning views and a 2 bed cottage
Dating from the mid 18th Century, Tixover Hall is Grade II Listed and sits in an elevated position beside the River Welland overlooking the Welland Valley.
Stone-built with a Collyweston slate roof, the house orientates east-west and has the most stunning front facade with a columned porch. High ceilings, shuttered windows and a timeless elegance are themes throughout and the two principal rooms to either side of the entrance hall, the drawing room and dining room, each have three full height sash windows with easterly views over the garden and across open countryside to the conservation village of Duddington and beyond. Both rooms have period fireplaces and the drawing room has beautiful ceiling cornicing.
The kitchen has a four oven AGA, granite work surfaces, a large island and leads to the orangery which doubles as a bootroom. The family room, study and conservatory are on the south side of the house and all enjoy views of the garden, river and open countryside beyond. Lastly, there is a utility room and integral double garage (formerly the kitchen), which could, given the correct consents and permissions, be reinstated as a kitchen or converted into further reception space. Stairs lead from the hall to the first floor where the master bedroom suite benefits from morning sun and has a large dressing room and full en-suite bathroom. On the first floor there are a further four double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a shower room. Each of the bedrooms has stunning views and none disappoint. One of the bedrooms has a balcony overlooking the river.
On the second floor there are five attic rooms, two of which are used as occasional bedrooms, as well as a bathroom with sauna.
Adjoined, and accessable internally from the main house as well as having its own front door, is a two bedroom cottage, this benefits from its own drive and garden to the west of the house, providing privacy. This offers supremely flexible alternate accommodation and is currently let out.
Wrought iron gates open onto a gravelled driveway from the north. The driveway has a central roundel, which is lawned. A stone wall and mature trees provide cover and privacy from the road to the north. The gardens, which are a delight, flow to the east and south and are a mixture of well tended lawns, mature yew and beech hedges and well loved and tended beds.
On the east lawn there is a summer house which rotates to adjust to the sun's orientation. From the South lawn, steps lead down to the river and snowdrop walk where you can take in the river and meadows beyond.
