This landmark property features an automatic gated entrance, sweeping drive, and exquisite family living accommodation extending beyond 10,000 square feet.
Commissioned by the present owner, and completed in 2009 to an exclusive, luxury specification, this exceptional home provides spacious accommodation arranged over three floors, fully equipped for family living and grand entertaining.
Upon entering from an imposing outer hall, its scale is immediately apparent. Arranged around a breathtaking, magnificent, atrium rotunda hall - which features a bespoke semi-circular staircase, elevator and first floor gallery - are three projecting wings housing luxurious living quarters.
The ground floor consists of approximately 4,500 square feet of accommodation. The reception rooms are spacious and well arranged for entertaining on a large scale, as well as family living. The grand hall leads into an elegant bay windowed lounge with vaulted ceiling and access onto a superb, large outdoor terrace; family room, formal dining room with access to a useful preparation kitchen, snug/tv room, family kitchen/breakfast room, two guest bedrooms with en-suites, cloakroom/wc, and lift access to all floors.
On the first floor, double doors lead into a hall with generous built-in storage and lift. The exceptional master bedroom suite has been positioned in order to take maximum advantage of the views from this easterly wing, and is equipped with extensive dressing facilities, and spacious en-suite bathroom. There is a further bedroom with en-suite on this floor.
The lower ground floor features a splendid and commodious entertaining room, versatile in its use – the space works well for social gatherings, but could easily be adapted for use as a media room, gallery space, or games room. In addition there is a gym with shower and wc facilities, office/study, laundry room, drying room/boot room, cloakroom/wc, lift and wine cellar. There is access from this level to the garage and rear parking area.
The grounds are breathtaking and provide an inspirational setting for Birch House. Along with the terracing, they have been designed to take full advantage of the wonderful views and White Cart river frontage. The landscaped gardens are mainly laid to lawn with an expansive entertaining terrace, a range of mature shrubs, herbaceous borders, and trees providing privacy and seclusion. Beyond the landscaping, the grounds descend towards the river bank where there are areas of meadow, providing scope for an equine paddock and/or the creation of woodland walks.
Integral to the main structure is an expansive garage with store room, accessed via twin automated double roller doors . The driveway also facilitates parking for numerous cars, both at the front and rear of the house. A useful garden store with wc is located beside the rear parking area.
There is gas-fired under-floor heating throughout the house, along with living flame fires in three reception rooms, lift access to all floors, an alarm and fire detection system, low voltage lighting and air conditioning within the office.
