The Pigeon House is a stunning secluded property set in approximately 3.5 acres surrounded by woodland and is built around an 18th century pigeon house which has been converted to residential use and offers spectacular views as far as the sea.
The flexible accommodation is arranged over four levels and is in excess of 5000 sq ft and has plenty of space and light as most primary rooms have wonderful views over the gardens and beyond.
The house is approached by a long private drive leading to a carriage driveway and is set in mature gardens which incorporate formal lawns, a small lake and areas of woodland all surrounded by neighbouring woods.
The central feature of the property is the Pigeon House standing three storeys high dressed in an attractive napped flint elevation with Middle East influenced arch detailing which is now used as a dining room, games room and a fabulous observation room with 360 degree views over the country towards the sea.
The large reception hallway is dominated by huge windows that overlook the terrace and beyond to the lake, this leads into the living room with impressive wood burner and doors outside. A glazed walkway runs past the Dining hall to the open plan kitchen breakfast/family room with adjacent utility room.
The two storey annex was formally a housekeepers accommodation but provides flexible space that could be for guests or a business.
The covered pool faces south and has attractive settings with a paved terrace, an attractive pergola, and mature planting which hides the pump house. The pool is serviced by a separate w.c, storage room and a shower room with sauna. There is also a hot tube on the terrace above.
On the lower level are plenty of small rooms including storage, a workshop, wine cellar and wood store.
Parking is easy with two garages, a car port and space for numerous vehicles.
Originally converted to residential in 1973, the current owner purchased in 1999 and embarked on ambitious plans to modernise and improve including added pitched roofs, developing the tower including building a glazed bridge and adding spiral staircases, landscaping and refurbishing the pool. The master ensuite was replaced in July 2019
The lake was drained, cleaned and refurbished in 2014, it is well stocked with fish and other wildlife and has a recirculating water fall.
The pool was refurbished in 2018 with new fibreglass, paving and an electric cover.
This unique and fantastic home has no onward chain. A viewing is highly recommended.
