Stunning from the very outskirts, the tree-lined property welcomes you to the 7 acres of land in which it sits. Throughout the home, you'll find traditional elements including large columns, original fireplaces and exposed wooden beams, yet the decor is stylish and modern. The heart of the house is the large open-plan living area, home to the kitchen, dining room and one of the lounge areas, with ceiling-to-floor bi-fold doors opening onto the vast garden. Outside make use of the heated swimming pool complete with hard cover and wonderful pool house (open April - September) with outdoor dining area and poolside pizza oven. The tall vaulted ceilings and large windows allow light to stream into the room, making it appear bigger and more impressive than it already is!

For a bit of peace and quiet, feel free to head into one of two lounge areas, where you'll find a feature fireplace in each and a TV with a games console in one. Younger kids will love the playroom filled with toys, whilst older youths will no doubt hang around the games room. Despite being on holiday you'll have no excuse not to exercise, as you have a private indoor gym. The six bedrooms are no doubt presented as fashionably as the rest of the property, and two unique mezzanine bedrooms offer a family sleeping space that takes the sting out of having to share with the kids.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
