Dating back to 1860, Summerhill House is a fine
example of a double-fronted Victorian residence
offering immaculately presented living space
arranged over four floors. It enjoys a pleasing view
over the Common to the front and in addition to
the main house, there is ancillary accommodation
in the form of an attached cottage, with its own
private entrance and parking.

The property has been beautifully refurbished
and conveys a sense of calm and tranquillity
throughout, with a neutral colour palette, high
ceilings and numerous windows, all combining
to enhance the light and space. The property
provides flexible accommodation and
features include attractive fireplaces, stripped
wooden flooring, bay windows, sash windows,
plantation style window shutters, decorative
architraving, moulded cornicing and ceiling roses.

Entered via a portico with a cast iron balcony
above, the welcoming reception hall features a
sweeping staircase and creates a striking first
impression. The ground floor benefits from
four reception rooms and boasts an impressive
kitchen/breakfast room, extensively fitted with a
range of natural limed units, a large island, Italian
natural limestone worksurfaces and numerous
integral appliances; double doors provide
access to the walled rear garden. Adjoining the
kitchen is a useful walk-in pantry and located
off the reception hall is a cloakroom. There is
programmable Rako lighting to the front porch, all
hallways in the main house and kitchen, adjoining
reception room and master bedroom suite.

On the first floor is the sumptuous master suite
comprising of a bedroom with a bay window,
an extensively fitted dressing room and a
spacious bathroom. There are two further en
suite bedrooms on this floor. On the top floor
there are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a
shower room and a study, which could be an
additional bedroom.

The lower ground floor comprises of a cinema
room, a games room, a wet room, a laundry room
and a gardener’s WC. There are 2 independent
entrances to this floor and most rooms benefit
from under-floor heating.

The adjacent cottage enjoys its own private
entrance, although it may be accessed from within
the main house if required, and provides excellent
guest/staff accommodation.

The ground floor is arranged to provide a
sitting room with a wood-burning stove,
kitchen and cloakroom and there are two
bedrooms (1 en suite) and a shower room on
the upper floor.

Set back from the road, behind hedge-lined
wrought-ironing railings, Summerhill House
is approached via a carriage driveway that
provides ample off-road parking. To the rear
of the house is a walled garden, laid to lawn
and containing a paved patio area, perfect
for entertaining and relaxation. A spur off the
driveway, leads along the side of the house
to the Cottage entrance and continues on to
The Coach House, which is under separate
ownership and has a Right of Way for access
over Summerhill House’s driveway.
