Withington House is equidistant from all the well regarded and sought-after surrounding towns and villages.

This stylish Edwardian country house retains many of the elegant and much cherished period features of the period but has been thoroughly remodelled by our clients to create a comfortable family home suited to 21st Century living.

Arranged over four floors, the 4381 sq ft of versatile and well balanced accommodation provides formal and informal reception rooms and six excellent bedrooms and bathrooms split over the two upper floors. The lower ground floor level houses a large utility/boot room and a large laundry room.

The heart of the house is the fine Mark Wilkinson living kitchen which extends into an informal dining area and a family room, with a cloakroom and a conveniently placed housekeeper’s office/study off. French doors open directly onto a raised decked balcony with a covered hot tub and an al fresco entertaining area.

The principal reception rooms lie off the hall and a large entrance vestibule. All three are elegant and spacious, with typically tall ceilings, fireplaces and a large side bay to the dining room.

A separate garaging and stable block lies to the west of the house and has a second driveway from the lane. A home office is located to the eastern end of this building, perfect for escaping interruptions.

Withington House stands back from this quiet country lane and lies at the head of a long, sweeping box lined driveway with stone gate posts and automated gates. The driveway bisects the extensive lawns and leads to a generous parking/turning area with a double carport and garden garage area. A space alongside is perfect for a horsebox or boat.

The gardens extend to almost 1.3 acres and include specimen trees and shrubs, lawns and mature hedges to the boundaries.

On the other side of the lane is a further area of paddock land extending to about 3.15 acres.
