House of Mailer is a very pretty, south facing period country house lying within a charming garden and commanding attractive panoramic (southerly) views over the surrounding countryside. Nestled within its own delightful well established garden with lawns, hedging, mature trees and shrubs, it offers a wonderfully sheltered and private setting.
House of Mailer has many desirable character and period features and provides both well-proportioned and flexible accommodation, ideally suited for family living and entertaining. The reception space is especially appealing with an attractive drawing room with feature fireplace leading into the delightful and well-proportioned garden room/dining room which enjoys direct garden access and views onto the gardens and countryside beyond. The adjacent country style breakfasting kitchen, with a dual aspect and Aga, is a most welcoming room, providing a good range of storage units together with an attractive bay window. The hall leads to a cosy snug, good sized study which could also be a family room.
There are three bedrooms (two with wash hand basins) on the ground floor with one benefiting from a dual aspect all serviced by a ground floor bathroom. The remaining ground floor accommodation includes a practical utility room, further wc, front and side vestibules and boiler room. Subject to careful re-configuration and obtaining any necessary consents, there may be potential to create a self-contained annex where the snug and utility are currently positioned.
The first floor has two further bedrooms and a bathroom. The generously sized master bedroom is particularly striking with multiple aspects which captures the rural views.
The accommodation over two floors comprises:-
Ground Floor: Front Vestibule, Hall, Drawing Room, Garden Room, Breakfasting Kitchen, Study, Snug, 3 Bedrooms, Utility, Side Vestibule, Bathroom, WC, Boiler Room
