There is a fascinating history to Street End Place. The property has been in the same family for numerous generations, and this is the first time it has been offered for sale. The original mansion house was demolished in the 1960s and replaced with a bungalow. This was subsequently demolished in the late 1980s and replaced with the house that is seen today. The property occupies the original footprint of the former mansion and benefits from the original walled gardens and associated period buildings, including a separate three-bedroom cottage.
A magnificent stone pillared entrance portico leads up to the double front door. In turn this opens to the stunning full height reception hall with its striking bifurcating staircase with a half landing and display niches to either side.
To the right is the superb 40ft drawing room, which has an ornate marble fireplace and a bay window with fabulous far-reaching views over adjoining farmland. To the left of the hall is the formal dining room, a wonderful room for entertaining. Beyond is the family breakfast room, which gives access to both the kitchen and the Amdega conservatory.
Positioned between the breakfast room and the drawing room is the generous sitting room with views over the walled garden. This is a bright and welcoming space with a large bay window. From here there is access to a half cellar and two large store cupboards. The kitchen provides plenty of storage in an array of fitted wall and base units alongside integrated appliances, including a double oven and an induction hob. There is a useful utility room and a separate cloakroom.
Upstairs the extensive 40’ galleried landing is the focal point with a skylight overhead. There are four generous double bedrooms, all of which have en suite bathrooms. These include the principal bedroom with its large en suite bathroom and access to the southwest-facing balcony. Two further bedrooms also have access to balconies.
Stable Cottage is set a little way from the main house and forms part of the range of buildings within the courtyard to the rear of the house.
The cottage has been beautifully appointed and styled and offers three reception rooms, a kitchen, three bedrooms and a shower room.
The cottage enjoys its own secluded rear garden with lovely far-reaching views. There is also a double garage.
A long carriage driveway leads up from Street End to a large gravel parking area at the front of the house. The everyday drive is to the rear, which also serves Stable Cottage and the outbuildings.
The outbuildings principally comprise a former stable block and adjoining store room, a detached store/garage. Attached to Stable Cottage is a further range of buildings, including a double garage and the former estate office with a self-contained flat above.
The parklike gardens and grounds include sweeping lawns and a magnificent display of fine specimen trees. To the rear of the house is a pair of walled gardens. The garden nearer to the house is profusely planted and landscaped with pathways interspersing the lawns and shrub and herbaceous beds. The rear courtyard is tranquil and provides a wonderful setting for this rare and special property.
