'Berkeley House' is a truly exceptional period residence with handsome Ashlar stone elevations beautifully complemented by the wonderful parkland style setting that the owners have created. The sweeping drive with its mature woodland verge adds a real sense of arrival. The interior is beautifully presented and retains much of the original character with accommodation that is arranged around a fabulous hallway with an impressive cantilevered stone staircase. There are three fine reception rooms, all with attractive fireplaces, and the dining room opens onto the verandah; the stunning kitchen is bespoke with granite worktops and travertine flooring and features an AGA. In addition there is a large play room, cloakroom and a useable cellar with separate external access. On the first floor a delightful galleried landing, with a sitting area overlooking the grounds, opens onto the balcony and there are four well-proportioned bedrooms complemented by two stylish bathrooms. The incredible gardens feature more formal areas by the house extending into landscaped grounds, studded with an array of specimen trees, which wrap around a small man made 'lake'. There is a paddock with its own access, an apple tree tunnel, raised vegetable beds and fruit cages.
