Full Details

The Chanters House is one of the most exquisite and historically significant houses for sale in the country. A sensational example of period architecture dating from the 14th Century to the modern day, this home has undergone extensive and painstaking renovations over the past 10 years by the current owners to make it a magnificent country home once again. The property has been meticulously designed over three floors to make it a wonderful home suitable for modern day living whilst retaining the history and sense of grandeur that can only be realised in a property such as this. A grand reception hall with solid oak flooring and a substantial period fireplace leads to the principal reception rooms, namely the fascinating Cromwell Fairfax Room where it is believed Civil War was declared in the 17th Century. The centrepiece of this home, however, is The Great Library, the breath-taking room is home to around 22,000 books, and is the largest library West of Salisbury. With a further six reception rooms, this residence provides space for a large multi-generational family, or alternatively has previously been used as a venue for weddings or bespoke photo shoots. On the first floor, a free-flowing galleried landing overlooks the grand reception hall below and provides access to four double bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathrooms that have been beautifully refurbished to make luxury rooms that are light and airy spaces, whilst retaining character and opulence. The floor above provides access to a further six bedrooms all with en-suites which have all been equally as beautifully renovated and dressed. The focal point of the accommodation is, however, the grandiose master suite; the ‘Reynell’ bedroom which features ‘his and hers’ en-suites and also an expansive dressing room. The gardens and grounds are a particular feature of The Chanters House, predominantly facing South and West. On the southern lawn a beautiful area comprising a BBQ oven and seating has been recently constructed to provide perfect entertaining space for the summer months. The grounds also benefit from a range of outbuildings, most notably a dazzling indoor swimming pool with changing rooms which is located within the walled garden, and is a real centre-piece for the home and the gardens. Also, ideal for summer entertaining is the tennis court to the western side of the house and the parkland which runs down to the river, providing a large area of deciduous woodland and woodland walks. Double gates provide access to a sweeping drive and a substantial amount of parking. EPC EXEMPT
