Description

The Orangery is a magnificent two storey property set into the hillside built of Elm Park Bath stone for ashlar and decorative work and Clipsham stone for the plinth and base. The windows to the front are traditional hardwood sashes beneath a traditional slate roof. It is a fine example of the reconstruction of an historic building replicating many of the attractive original cornice, plinth and pillar details. The quality of craftsmanship is outstanding, highlighting great attention to detail. To the rear of the main façade is a contemporary dwelling built largely of dressed stone and glass with a mainly lead roof.

The accommodation houses a magnificent long gallery in the original orangery with full height ceiling, decorative plasterwork and marble floor. There is a full height atrium situated between the orangery and the rest of the property providing the main reception hall, giving a sense of space and drama as well as housing a contemporary stainless steel and glass staircase with open Pippy oak treads. Accessed from a discreet trap door is a large basement room situated directly below the orangery with potential to be an indoor plunge pool. The atrium also houses the guest cloakroom. Beautiful veneer panelled sliding doors separate the atrium from the drawing room and kitchen. The substantial and comfortable double aspect drawing room has bifold doors leading onto the courtyard. There is a superb bespoke kitchen/family room located on the east side of the property, flooded with light from bifold doors onto the rear courtyard looking out onto the adjacent garden. The kitchen has contemporary gloss finishes with high end appliances including professional ovens.

Situated between the drawing room and kitchen is a double sided wood burning stove. Beyond the kitchen is a useful study, laundry room, walk in pantry and wine store. In the north wing is a substantial workshop with potential for three additional en suite bedrooms (established in perpetuity) but could alternatively provide further reception space, games room/gymnasium, subject to planning consent.

Accessed from an impressive galleried landing are four spacious bedrooms. The master bedroom has a walk in dressing room and open plan en suite bathroom with steam shower, as well as a sitting area with access to the roof terrace, which in turn leads directly into the main garden. The guest bedroom has a sitting area and en suite bathroom. In addition, there are two further individually styled bedrooms with en suite shower rooms.

On the west side of the property is a most attractive standalone coach house, built in a similar manner to the principal property, providing secure four car garaging with a luxurious self contained studio flat above, accessed via an external staircase.

The Orangery, whose principal elevation faces south east, represents a beautiful contemporary house on a unique historical site offering energy efficient and eco friendly features such as rainwater harvesting and a ground source heat pump providing domestic hot water and underfloor heating systems throughout the main house. The arrangement and measurements of the rooms can be seen on the accompanying floorplans. The overall design provides generously proportioned rooms with much of the ground floor accommodation being open plan, divided by sliding doors which makes the property ideal for entertaining.

The property will be attractive to buyers looking to move out of London, international buyers and regional buyers wishing to relocate from The Midlands conurbation into rural Warwickshire, accessible to The Cotswolds.
