A unique property set in an impressive 65 acre private country estate with superb southerly views over the grounds and towards the lake DESCRIPTION North Frith is a picturesque 65 acre private country estate comprising ancient woodland with Sika deer, badgers and an abundance of wildlife, park-like gardens and grounds, fields and two lakes, all beautifully maintained for the exclusive use of the residents. The impressive Grade II listed main house dates back to 1889 and, together with a range of staff quarters, stable blocks and coach houses, it was converted in 2001 by Berkeley Homes into 27 unique properties including detached cottages/houses, mews houses, apartments and The Orangery. The Orangery is a substantial, distinctive addition to the main house. It is a unique property with superb, uninterrupted southerly views over the grounds and down to one of the lakes. It displays exposed steel framework and, as one might expect, an abundance of windows. It is believed to have been part of the original design but has been significantly altered over the years and during the conversion. In addition to use of the communal grounds and visitor parking, the house comes with its own private, south facing garden with an area for outdoor dining, a walled passageway/courtyard running around two side of the house offering additional private outdoor space, twin garages and two dedicated parking spaces.
