    The Paddocks is set amid a private estate of 42 acres. This land is split into gardens and post and railed paddocks.

    There are a total of four stable blocks and one 9,000sq ft barn that could be suitable for stabling. There is also a formal gallop around the perimeter of the estate.

    The Paddocks is approached through a private, gated entrance with a drive leading to a four door garage. The garage block incorporates a gardener’s WC and a kitchenette. Above the garage is a large room that could be adapted to provide additional accommodation or a studio.

    Outside there is a tennis court, a pergola with hot tub, an outdoor assault course, mature woodland, a lake and extensive lawns suitable for helicopter landings.

    The property also has a 26ft swimming pool and gym, plus a games room on the first floor with full size bar, lounge and large balcony area.

    The original Georgian property has undergone significant extensions and modernisation.

    The kitchen/diner is bespoke and handmade incorporating a five-oven electric Aga. A centre island includes a breakfast bar with marble tops and contrasting walnut butcher’s block. There’s a pantry, a spacious dining area and an inglenook fireplace with AGA log burner.

    The kitchen is served by a wine cellar and a circular kitchen garden with greenhouse.

    Reception rooms in the house include a lounge, dining room, orangery, laundry, study and cloakroom/toilet.

    The original staircase has been retained and leads to the five bedrooms, all of which are doubles and have en-suite facilities in addition to a family bathroom.

    The master suite has a balcony with views across the land and an open plan, fully-fitted dressing room too.
