The accommodation features solid oak and slate flooring, aluminium windows, bi-fold doors, a red brick and oak clad exterior façade, a wood burner within the huge lounge, bar, designer kitchen with fully integrated appliances and contemporary flush cabinets. The ground floor is complete with snug/cinema room, cloakroom and separate utility room. The first floor, with split level landing, has five double bedrooms, two en-suite bathrooms and a family bathroom-each finished in their unique style. Views of the creek are perfectly framed from many of the rooms yet privacy and seclusion are in abundance.
St Mary's is nestled amongst 2.3 acres of terraced valley garden with an extensive array of broadleaf woodland. This includes species of oak, sycamore, ash, hawthorn and elm as well as a large Canadian pine, twisted willow, weeping willows and acers. A gravelled terrace wraps around the front and side of the building with a Scandinavian log fired hot tub located on a lower level, perfectly positioned to enjoy the views of the water and natural surroundings. Of further note is a recently constructed steel framed barn which can be utilised as a tennis court, storage facility, for boat storage or a variety of other uses. Services to the property include mains water and electricity, oil fired central heating and private drainage.
There is a certain majesty and tranquillity surrounding St Mary's and we at Jackie Stanleys recommend a visit to witness it for yourself.
