A handsome Grade II Listed house offering a compelling mix of period charm with fresh, modern spaces.
Believed to date back to the 16th and 17thCentury, Sedgcombe House is Grade II Listed and offers a compelling mix of period charm and fresh, modern spaces. The house retains a clear relationship to the architectural history of the area and the accommodation is generous with the numerous reception rooms allowing for a real flexibility as to how they could be used. Highlights include the showstopping vaulted entrance hall, with ornate staircase. There is a wealth of period features throughout that include flagstone and polished wood floors, exposed wall timbers and beams, oak and painted panelling, stone fireplaces and door surrounds and finally oaks doors and windows with leaded lights.
In contrast to the period features, the house is very much set up to suit 21st Century living and has been fitted with a Leutron lighting system, underfloor heating, a projector with surround sound system and an integrated sound system throughout a number of rooms in the house. The kitchen is very much the heart of the home and has been fitted with painted units, granite work tops and integrated Miele appliances which include a double oven, coffee maker, induction hob, dishwasher and fridge/freezer – if that wasn’t enough, there is also a gas fired Aga. The five bedroom, five bathroom layout (of which four are en-suite) is ideally suited for a family. The master bedroom is particularly impressive with walk in wardrobe, en-suite bathroom and attractive semi-circular bay window which provides a view across the garden.
Double gates open onto a gravel driveway where there is parking for a number of cars. The south east facing, private gardens are simply stunning and it is clear that a huge amount of time and effort has gone into creating this magnificent space. Mostly laid to lawn, the garden is interspersed with a variety of well-establish flower beds, stone pathways and immaculately kept yew and box topiary. There is a wonderful loggia which is a perfect place for those who enjoy outside dining and entertaining. There is a stone built double garage with guest annexe above.
