A fine Grade II listed country house, with ancillary accommodation, in a stunning parkland setting.The origins of Hawley House can be traced to the mid to late 18th century, with subsequent additions, and as a result, this magnificent Grade II listed property still retains the grandeur of a bygone era, showcasing many character features and architectural details. These include elegant sash windows with their original working shutters, excellent ceiling heights with detailed cornicing, period fireplaces and impressive plasterwork. The house has been beautifully and sympathetically renovated by the current owners, an undertaking that only serves to enhance its character and appeal. Of notable interest and a rare find, is the large and beautifully preserved brick-lined ice well that, as its name suggests, was used to store ice before the days of artificial refrigeration. In addition to the main house, there is ancillary accommodation in the form of two two-bedroom apartments located above the garage building that offer the opportunity of a generous rental income.The house is approached from Fernhill Road via unassuming electric gates, opening onto a long driveway that sweeps through banks of rhododendrons and culminates in a large gravelled parking area and turning circle. Upon arrival, a large stone portico with a triglyph frieze and Tuscan columns, invites you to enter the house and into a stately reception hall. Here the parquet flooring, oak panelled walls, fireplace with log burner, and statement columned arches create a tremendous sense of arrival and successfully set the tone and character of this historic building. As might be expected of a property of this calibre, the principal reception rooms are impressive and provide significant spaces for formal and informal entertaining, possessing both pleasing proportions and fine detailing. The drawing room is especially inviting with its large bay window, ornate fireplace, parquet flooring, wall panelling, decorative ceiling plasterwork and comfortable ambience. Like the drawing room, the dining room also has a grand presence with three sets of sash windows, a fireplace, decorate ceiling plasterwork, and ample space to accommodate large gatherings. Adjoining the drawing room is a sitting room that provides optional relaxation space and boasts an impressive barrel vaulted ceiling, along with double doors opening out to the rear terrace. This room links with the generously proportioned orangery with its lofty glazed ceiling and terracotta tiled floor with detailed edging; a useful cloakroom discreetly occupies a corner of this room.At the far end of the reception hall is the spacious kitchen/breakfast room, a sociable hub fitted with an extensive range of units, granite work surfaces, a large island, a Brittania range cooker, and integral appliances including two Neff dishwashers, Neff microwave, and a US style fridge/freezer. This room is light and airy thanks to the large bay window and there is ample space for a breakfast table, perfect for informal dining. Also located at this side of the house is a serene snug/library with a large bay window and a fireplace with inset log burner, and a cloakroom.Situated on the lower ground floor is a dedicated cinema room, a kitchen, home office, utility room, warm room with shower, and two store rooms. On the first floor, many of the rooms enjoy wonderful views over the grounds and the accommodation is laid out to provide a sumptuous principal suite comprising a generously proportioned bedroom with a bay window, a fitted dressing room and a uniquely designed bathroom featuring a raised area with steps up to the Cleopatra Hydro Spa bath, a vanity unit with ‘his and her' wash basins, a frosted glass enclosed area housing a separate shower, and a further frosted glass enclosure containing a bidet and WC.
