Impressive country home with 1.2 acres and swimming pool

Granville House is a fine country residence situated in Toot Hill. This wonderfully positioned property originally dates back to the 1930’s and over the years has been transformed into a sprawling family home.

Upon entering Granville House, you are immediately met by a fabulous American walnut and glass staircase leading to the galleried landing, lit by heritage double glazed timber sliding sash windows which overlook rolling fields. Leading from the entrance hall, the accommodation neatly flows to the Study /Snug, the main reception room, the kitchen and dining room. The snug is currently used as both an office; this room is lined with handmade bespoke cupboards with frosted glass inserts. The spacious living room with a bespoke solid oak floor and flush granite fireplace is simply breath-taking and includes bi-folding doors leading out to the rear garden. The Kitchen has a wonderful rear aspect and truly is the heart of the home. The kitchen is a bespoke design with an extensive range of units flanking an angled island unit and breakfast bar. Both kitchen and utility room are covered with an expanse of Granite worktops and a full range of the highest specification Gaganaue appliances. The space is not only visually impressive but also ideal for busy family life. Bespoke double doors from the kitchen neatly lead directly to the utility room. A fully functional room, incorporating kitchen units, a second sink and second dishwasher ready to cater for entertaining large numbers of guest. The ground floor continues through a glass corridor leading from the kitchen area to a guest bedroom with en-suite, a reception room / playroom, generously sized laundry / boot room, a Gymnasium and media room. This area of the property could be adapted to create an annex (subject to planning approvals).

On the first floor there are four bedrooms all with a rear aspect over the garden. Bedroom one includes an extensive range of fitted wardrobes and a fully equipped en-suite. Bedroom two also includes an en-suite shower room and there is a family bathroom to serve bedrooms three and four.

This property has 1.2 acres of land.


The property is set towards the front of its 1.2 acre plot. It is approached via electric gates which lead to a wide shingle driveway providing parking for several vehicles and the double garage.

The rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn and are extremely well-secluded by mature trees and shrubs to the boundaries. There is also a heated outdoor swimming pool within the gardens. Also within the grounds is a stable block with three horse boxes and a tack room and the property enjoys being unoverlooked having open countryside to two aspects.
