Extending to over 6,200sqft, Blunham Court forms part of the original Grade II listed 18th Century Blunham House and is steeped in local history; it is reputed that Winston Churchill stayed at the house during the war. The original house was divided into two separate residences in 1952 and Blunham Court occupies the formal and impressive front portion.   Since purchasing the house in 2000, the current owners have updated the property to create an enviable home of great character and appeal.   The accommodation is laid out over two floors with some beautiful period features including a stunning sweeping oak staircase (mentioned in Pevsner), oak parquet flooring, panelled walls, sash windows and shutters, architraving and open fireplaces.   The rooms are full of natural light with high ceilings and grand proportions, many boasting wonderful views over the gardens.    The house is perfect for entertaining with a unrivalled galleried reception hall, a beautiful drawing room, a large kitchen/dining room, fitted with contemporary units and bespoke cabinets, a cosy family room and a study. There is also good-size laundry/utility room as well as a larder and a hobbies room (which was the original butler’s pantry). On the first floor are five bedrooms including a master bedroom suite, accessed from a separate landing and pretty staircase, guest bedroom with jack-and-jill bathroom, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The property is approached through a five bar gate opening to a long, tree lined driveway leading down to the house, the gravelled parking and the double garage and workshop. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with some beautiful mature trees and well stocked beds and borders. To the side of the house is a walled south-facing terrace, ideal for al-fresco dining.   There is also a hard tennis court with sport fencing and a paved seating area with pretty gazebo.    Wrought iron gates open through to a spinney which in turns leads down to the River Ivel. In the spinney is a field shelter, a hay barn and a timber garden shed.    The current owners currently lease a paddock which can be accessed via separate gates.
