Hedgecourt House is a stunning family home with substantial and very well presented accommodation originally believed to have been built between 1740 and 1768. The property has been extended and improved several times during its life, with one extension originally created by the famous designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
The property is imbued throughout with exceptional character and original features. Of particular note are the lovely inglenook fireplaces in the dining room and drawing room, oak beams and flagstone flooring. The kitchen/breakfast room is beautifully fitted with a range of bespoke kitchen units designed by Mark Wilkinson with woodblock and granite worktops.
The beautiful master bedroom suite has a dressing room as well as a nursery/study. There are three further good sized bedrooms off the main landing, all with en suite bathrooms. A lockable door from the principal bedroom also connects through to the guest wing, where there is a very well appointed bath/shower room with designer suite, three further bedrooms and a secondary staircase.
The property is set back from Copthorne Road, with the stunning gardens and grounds bordering Hedgecourt Lake. A sweeping drive bordered by beech hedging leads up to electric wooden double gates. In front of the house is a substantial parking and turning area. Beyond is a substantial barn style garage block and garden stores.
Across the front of the house are brick paved paths and lawn bordered by topiary hedging, opposite is an avenue of ornamental trees bordered by woodland. A long gravel pathway flanked by pyramid trellises and a pergola, leads to the eastern end of the grounds. On the southern side of the pathway is a delightful pool area, with a very attractive swimming pool. Alongside the swimming pool sits the wonderful timber framed pool house with vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, large sitting area, two further sets of French doors, fitted kitchen, WC and shower room. Beyond is a croquet lawn. The main garden lies to the north side of the pathway where there is a sunken rose garden, ponds with water lilies and Japanese bridges, woodland, a kitchen garden bordered by ornamental box hedging with fruit cages and a magnificent lawn and wild garden bordering Hedgecourt Lake.
