An immaculately presented and newly refurbished Grade II listed late-Georgian manor house with two semi-detached cottages, set in beautiful grounds.
The house is a very attractive Grade II Listed, 2-storey manor house built of mellow red brick under a Welsh slate and plain tile roof and has a classic late-Georgian symmetrical front elevation decorated with flanking louvered shutters and an attractive stone doorcase. The entire property has undergone a full programme of renovation and modernisation to the highest standards over the past few years. Under the direction of the renowned interior designer, Melanie Hall, an ultra-modern and vibrant style has been introduced to the interior of the main house, which respects the authenticity and style of the original building and yet provides a striking contrast with the beautiful, old exterior. IMAGES TAKEN WHEN PREVIOUSLY FURNISHEDOn the ground floor, a great sense of space and light has been created with broad openings off the centrally-positioned reception hall to the sitting and dining rooms on either side. Both rooms have tall windows overlooking the garden and fireplaces fitted with wood-burning stoves. The dining room can comfortably seat twelve and is open-plan to the state-of-the-art chef's kitchen with central kitchen island and breakfast room. Adjacent to the drawing room is the family room and the newly-built orangery, which opens onto the terrace. Beyond the kitchen is the study, which contains the inglenook fireplace from the original house, the cloakroom, the walk-in larder and wine room, the laundry room and the boot room. On the first floor the layout of rooms has been re-configured to provide a larger principal bedroom suite, with a dressing room and en suite bath and shower room. There is a second double bedroom with en suite bath and shower room and two further double bedrooms, which are both en suite to a dual- access bath and shower room.Located some way from the main house are Apple Loft Cottage and Drayton Manor Cottage. The former currently serves as a guest cottage and has a sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, three bedrooms, shower room and cloakroom. The latter is used for staff accommodation and has a sitting room, kitchen breakfast room, two bedrooms, shower room and cloakroom.Attached at the rear of the house is a newly extended double garage with an adjacent bicycle store, log store and gardener's WC. A short walk from the main house is a newly built home office and gym which overlooks the stream and pond. There is also a summer house and adjacent to the kitchen garden are the garden store and greenhouse. In the larger of the two paddocks is a new modern machinery store with scope to create stabling if required, subject to consent.The property sits back from the village lane down a private drive, which forks to a parking area at the front of the house whilst a secondary spur continues to the garaging at the rear of the house and on to both cottages. The main house sits centrally to its land with gardens on all sides providing a sense of seclusion and privacy from neighbouring houses. The gardens and grounds surround the house with wide swathes of lawn, two terraces, a tulip garden, a vegetable garden, many fine mature trees and a small arboretum. On the southern side of the house are a sunken hot tub and a delightful stream flows around two sides of the garden. The gardens are complemented by two paddocks, one of which has separate access directly from the village lane. In all the gardens and grounds extend to about 7 acres.
The property is situated on the edge of the small village of Drayton, which is surrounded by unspoilt Somerset countryside and has a parish church, village hall, the Drayton Arms public house, and an annual Street Fair. The area has excellent schooling at all levels. Local schools include Kings School Bruton, Bruton School for Girls, Millfield, the Sherborne Schools, the Taunton schools, Hazlegrove, Leweston
