Abbeyhill is an elegant country Regency residence of substantial proportions sensitively re-imagined for the 21st century together with a 3 bedroom cottage, Abbecot, and which has been faultlessly maintained and presented in immaculate decorative order throughout.
Set in manicured grounds extending to approximately 1¾ acres, Abbeyhill together with Abbecot combines modern-day comfort and convenience with the signature traditional elegance of the Regency era.
The principal residence is distinguished by spacious reception rooms offering opportunities for entertaining on the grand scale and areas for more informal family living, central to which is a magnificent lantern-ceilinged orangery/conservatory. The accommodation is completed by a double aspect drawing room, formal dining room and large kitchen/breakfast room on the ground floor and four bedrooms, a library/study and two bathrooms spread over the first and second floors.
Abbecot with its delightful courtyard setting and own easily manged garden area, is ideally suitable for an independent relative or staff, while an adjoining coach house offers a wealth of potential, subject to the usual planning consents for additional accommodation.
