THE PROPERTY

Haygrass House is approached via a private drive leading to a large parking and turning area in front of the beautiful East facade. The house is Grade II listed and of classic Georgian architecture surrounded by established formal gardens and grounds. According to the listing, the house dates from c.1800 and is in a classic Georgian architectural style with a wealth of decorative period features internally. First impressions are superb, with a large and elegant entrance hall giving access to the principal reception rooms. The wealth of reception rooms at Haygrass House ensure it is both an ideal family home and perfect for entertaining and the proportions, ceiling heights and original features are impressive. The drawing room faces due south over the extensive formal gardens and grounds with a bay window ensuring plenty of natural light. Opposite is the dining room, an equally generous room with floor to ceiling sash windows and an open fire. The entrance hall continues into the inner hall from which the beautiful cantivered staircase with roof light above rises to the first floor. There is a library off the inner hall, with south facing floor to ceiling windows and double doors giving access to the gardens. The kitchen forms the heart of the home and is fully fitted with modern appliances as well as a central island and AGA. A pantry sits off the kitchen and there is a secondary kitchen with a door leading directly into the dining room, ideal for preparation when entertaining. Also on the ground floor are a cinema room, family room and study / home office. Beyond this and towards the back of the house are the practical elements including a large laundry / utility room and two store rooms. There is access to the rear courtyard from the back of the house. There is an extensive basement including a wine cellar and storage rooms. Haygrass House has the unique feature of a ballroom, cementing its place as the consummate entertaining house. The ballroom measures 40 ft by 18 ft and is ideal for parties. Off the ballroom is a preparation kitchen, pantry and a gym. The grand proportions continue to the first floor, where a generous front landing leads to the main bedrooms. The principal bedroom is particularly impressive with a double aspect giving elevated views over the gardens and a beautifully finished en suite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms at the front of the house, one with an en suite bathroom. There are six further bedrooms, and four bath / shower rooms all of which are of generous proportions. The Lodge Next to the entrance gates and with its own parking and garden is the lodge, which has been refurbished to an excellent standard and works ideally as additional guest accommodation. It also provides an opportunity for rental income. The Lodge consists of two bedrooms, two bathrooms, sitting room and kitchen. Stable Flat Situated above the stables, the stable flat offers additional ancillary accommodation for staff or guests. There are two bedrooms, a bathroom and an open plan kitchen / dining / sitting room.
