Property Description

Savills proudly presents Gurteen House, a 5-bed semi-detached home secretly hidden from view in a long gravel driveway, hidden among high mature trees and nestled among a small forest on app

The journey started some 17 years ago for these owners when they took an already unique 18th Century house and extended to create a wonderfully incorporated modern kitchen/living space and an indoor swimming pool. This has maintained the charm of the historic property while achieving wonderful light filled accommodation.

Stepping in to the entrance hallway, from elevated access, you are greeted by charming features such as the original tiled floor and exposed timber beams overhead, complimented by gargoyle inspired supports. You will notice numerous original features and bespoke plasterwork that make for a truly unique home.

From the entrance, you will find the lounge/library, currently used as a home office and a generous drawing room with double doors that will bring you to a quiet living room to the rear. Leaving the original house and making your way in to the extension, you will find a wonderfully bright kitchen/dining room, pantry and utility room. Also, at this level you will find one of the five double bedrooms and a bathroom.

Making your way up the solid timber staircase, reveals three double bedrooms, the main bathroom and the master bedroom. The master suite is impressive, complete with an office, dressing room and full en suite.

The views from all areas of the property including the rear garden are simply spectacular and cannot be underestimated, they must be experienced to be appreciated. A large lawn with low maintenance trees and shrubbery surrounding it lead to extensive paved terraces to the east and south of the property. The site is bounded on three sides by cut rock backdrop and stone walls, while the boundary to the east is tree lined with a private sunken patio and garden shed. Two adjoining storage units, one with a mezzanine floor are located to the north east of the property, and can be easily converted to living accommodation (STPP).

Extensive paved terrace located off the dining room to the front of the house. There is a gravelled parking area for several cars, a man-made pond, foundations laid for a tennis court and outhouses with potential for development. There is a lawned area to the rear with mature trees and shrubs followed by a wooded area.
