THE PROPERTY

AN OUTSTANDING VICTORIAN HOME WITH EXCELLENT EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES ON THE FRINGE OF THIS MUCH ADMIRED VILLAGE .... Ockley House is a most impressive and attractive late Victorian residence with a wonderful approach and elegant substantial drive culminating in extensive parking and turning facility in front of the house. On the approach, there are a series of post and rail paddocks alongside the drive and areas of formal garden surrounding the house Ockley House has been tastefully enhanced and upgraded to an extremely good standard by the current owners, whilst retaining many of the characteristics of the Victorian era that one would expect including well proportioned rooms, high ceilings, sash windows and open fireplaces. Some of the particular noteworthy features include the superb kitchen/breakfast room which is beautifully appointed with an open plan feel and the kitchen area features a vaulted ceiling and enjoys a bright outlook with lovely views. The dining room is an elegant and substantial room in excess of 28 feet with a lovely open fireplace. There is a great sense of space and versatility as can be identified on the floorplan. Ockley House sits in a gently elevated position with fine views over its grounds of about 7.5 acres with post and rail paddocks and formal gardens. There is a substantial parking area in front of the house with the driveway continuing from the right of the property to the rear where there is a garage block and further secondary access for larger vehicles. The gardens have been well maintained over the years, offering a high degree of seclusion and very much in harmony with the charming character of the property. The paddocks enjoy a wonderfully unspoilt scenic rural location with attractive views back toward the village and the church spire visible. There is an all weather 40 metre by 20 metre menage and a stable yard incorporating a total of five stables, tack room, feed room and various storerooms, along with a hay barn. Please note the following: There is a public footpath running through the land holding. The adjoining property has the benefit of a right of way off the secondary (southern driveway).
