Holmwood is a substantial and elegant country house originally built in 2007 to a design by award winning architect, Christopher Gregory.
This superb house was constructed to a high standard matching the requirements of modern day living and is of a size equally suitable for a large family for private use and for entertaining on a grand scale.

The layout and flow of the accommodation makes full use of its outstanding setting within its own grounds and views of the countryside beyond. The house has the benefit of lutron lighting and an integrated music system to a number of the main rooms. Enormous attention to detail has been paid to the internal and external architecture, incorporating use of traditional materials and paying particular attention to ceiling heights, open plan living and the creation of a warm family feel. Internal features include a bespoke ‘Plain English’ kitchen, stone flooring, stone fire places and large bay windows and the main reception rooms are arranged off the impressive entrance hall with its elegant staircase. The house is approached over an impressive gravelled entrance drive guarded by a Lodge Cottage to a large parking area and steps down to the front door. A continuation of the drive leads to extensive garaging. The house is of a mellow red brick construction under a tile roof and is laid out principally over two floors.

Ground floor: Reception hall: A lovely light reception hall leads to the drawing room. Drawing room: An impressive drawing room with large bay windows, brick fireplace, oak flooring and exposed beams. Dining Room: A beautiful light room with views of the garden, double doors from the hall and a large open fireplace. Kitchen/Prep kitchen: A high quality ‘Plain English’ bespoke fitted kitchen with extensive wooden worktops, wall and floor units and central work island together with an Aga. This is very much the centre of the house and has a breakfast area together with a secondary preparation kitchen with further storage and cooking facilities. Laundry/Utility Room: Comprehensively fitted for extra fridges and freezers. Study: Oak flooring with beamed ceiling Rear Hall with Cloakroom and WC. Games room: A particularly impressive games/ entertaining room ideal for family use with doors out to the terrace and garden.

First Floor: The first floor is dominated by the large master bedroom suite, a supremely elegant master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and separate dressing area. There is a large bay window overlooking the garden with views to the countryside beyond. There are a further 5 impressive bedroom suites on this floor with high quality fitted bathrooms. All the common parts of the house are generous, well lit and have a great feeling of space throughout. There is also a large gym/cinema room with surround sound speakers together with further extensive loft space which could potentially be converted into further rooms should it be a required.

East Lodge is an attractive lodge cottage approached off a spur from the main driveway and is constructed of attractive brick and tile construction. This consists of a large reception room, a good sized kitchen, utility room and shower room. On the first floor there are two bedrooms and a bathroom with a spacious landing where a study could easily be created. The
cottage is subject to a planning tie that it should be occupied ancillary to the main house.
A continuation of the drive leads to the garage block with three car bays allowing parked cars to remain out of sight.

Garden and grounds:
The gardens were designed and laid out at the same time as the house by Todd Longstaffe-Gowan, one of the leading award-winning landscape gardeners. There are extensive lawned areas on both sides of the house separated by neat gravelled paths and incorporating an intriguing circle shaped central lawn. To one side is a heated swimming pool in a sheltered and private setting with a charming pool house with changing facilities, and at the foot of the garden is an all-weather tennis court and pavilion. The gardens are enclosed within elegant mature herbaceous borders and flowerbeds which have the benefit of an irrigation system and there are some wonderful mature trees of all varieties. A beautiful block of mixed woodland of mature oak and beech wood provides a serene backdrop to the house and gardens and is crisscross by a network of pathways.
