Hastingford House is understood to date from 15th Century, with later additions, and is a beautifully restored L-shaped 6-bay Hall House. Externally, the house presents attractive mellow brick, sandstone and weatherboard elevations.

The house provides stunning and well-arranged accommodation over two floors. Features of note include two magnificent inglenook fireplaces, a wealth of honey coloured timbers, a spiral staircase, which leads from the kitchen/breakfast room to the utility room, oak latch doors and a two oven Aga and an extensive range of Smallbone units in the kitchen/breakfast room.

Also of note is the vaulted study/bedroom 5 which features bespoke Mark Wilkinson oak book shelving, an extensive range of cupboards and a built in desk. In addition, the house benefits from luxurious and well-appointed bathrooms with some Phillip Starke fitments, and mirrors by CP Hart.

In addition to the main house, there is separate weatherboard and tile annexe, providing an ideal home office.

Hastingford House is approached from the lane via an electrically operated wooden five bar entrance gate, from which a gravel driveway leads up to the front of the house. Bordering the parking area is a substantial 15th century five bay thatched barn, which provides garaging and storage. To the front of the house there is a lawn with a beautifully maintained knot garden beyond.

Immediately adjacent to the rear of the house is a wide York Stone terrace, with steps leading down to a circular paved sitting area with a barbeque to one side. From the terrace, a winding brick path leads through the gardens to the kitchen garden, which is intersected by various brick paved paths. To one side of the kitchen garden there is a greenhouse, fruit cage, garden store and a heated kennel.

The remainder of the gardens have been beautifully landscaped over the years, and have been influenced in part by the RHS Chelsea Flower Shower designer, Miriam Book. There is an ornamental pond, numerous well-stocked herbaceous beds and some magnificent mature trees. Forming the northern boundary of the property is an attractive river. Beyond the formal gardens there is an all weather tennis court, picturesque stocked lake with a bridge and wild flower meadow beyond. To the far end of the grounds there is a recently planted orchard and an enchanting tree house with a balcony overlooking the grounds.

From the property and its gardens there is a wonderful outlook over the lake. In all about 2.5 acres.
