This exceptional early 19th century house was built for Dr Andrew Coventry, Britain’s first Professor of Agriculture, which is reflected in the spectacular gardens he established which surround the house.

A classically proportioned, impressive yet welcoming house, the ground floor is dominated by the south facing drawing room and dining room, both with bay windows overlooking the front gardens. A further sitting room has a library feel, and other rooms on this level include a study/home office, kitchen, breakfast room, utility room, cosy snug, bathroom, larder, wine store, and WC.

A staircase leads up to a split level landing, off which are two spacious double bedrooms, one with a dressing room and the other with an en-suite bathroom, while there are a further five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a study/nursery, and a back staircase.

The sale includes a pretty two-bedroom gate lodge and an attractive courtyard of stone outbuildings including a derelict former gardener’s cottage ripe for renovation, while the 25 or so acres of stunning grounds offer a blend of mature, richly planted formal gardens, unspoilt parkland and woodland, and include a duck pond, woodland burn, orchard, kitchen garden, summerhouse, and tennis court.
