This truly remarkable Georgian country house is positioned in a wonderful village setting. Behind the period facade this seven-bedroom home has a stunning interior blending seamlessly with classic yet modern design. Indoor pool, and separate two-bedroom cottage. In all 2.7 acres.

Forest Green House has the unmistakable symmetry of a classic Georgian Country House.
Approach via a gated gravel driveway and past manicured lawn gardens, a sense of excitement and expectation is felt by all who visit. The front elevation, with Georgian sash windows and the half clay-tiled elevations, exemplifies the architecture of this period.

The grand reception hall with its high ceilings, Adam style fireplace, wood panelling and southerly aspect offers a bright and opulent feel when entering this amazing home. Leading from this wonderful entrance the main drawing can be found. This remarkable room enjoys a warmth and luxurious feel from the wood panelled walls, central fireplace, ornate ceilings and the large box bay window with fine views across to the formal gardens beyond.

Towards the rear of the drawing room a doorway leads to a more contemporary sitting room, again enjoying lovely views out into the gardens. The music room, and family room are also accessed from the main reception hall.

A Palladian style extension has been added to the rear of this fine period property creating a substantial hub of the home. Bespoke fitted by Damien Logue, the kitchen area has an impressive central island with a breakfast bar. A full height array of draw units and pantry style cabinets have been fitted with an oak finish. Complementing the rich warm colours of the Oak units are more country chic style cabinets in a light neutral tone, all topped with light stone worksurfaces. A wide four oven range by Falcon, two dishwashers, wine fridge, integrated day fridge and an American style Fischer and Paykel free standing fridge unit with freezer draws below, all add to the usability and effectiveness of this cleverly thought out and designed kitchen space.

In addition, a large dining area and family seating area all look out towards the garden terraces. This fabulous space is flooded with light from a substantial roof lantern and dual aspect windows.
Leading from the kitchen area is a separate dining room (currently used as a games room), utility room, and cloakroom. The indoor swimming pool is also accessed from here. The pool area is over 31 meters in length, to one side there are fully opening bi-fold doors giving an inside outside feel. A newly installed sauna and changing room facilities complete this superb indoor leisure setup.

The first-floor bedroom accommodation is as grand and spacious as the ground floor reception rooms. With high ceilings, large Georgian windows, and all beautifully presented.

The master bedroom suite has been meticulously designed with bespoke cabinets and wardrobes. The large Georgian panelled windows have a wonderful view over the front and side gardens. An opulent and spacious en-suite bathroom and separate dressing compliment this splendid suite. Six further double bedrooms all benefit from en-suite shower rooms or full bathrooms. A back stair at the far end of the landing brings you down to the rear lobby, new to the kitchen area.

The entrance drive approaches the house from the south and opens to a large gravel forecourt. To the west of the parking area is a separate recently refurbished cottage. With two charming reception rooms, newly installed fitted kitchen and two double bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor. A barn style garage/workshop with ample parking is also discreetly positioned away from the main house.

The house is surrounded by its gardens and, following the installation of the ground source heating system, have been professionally landscaped. The gardens have been arranged into separate areas, such as a formally laid out rose garden, a more relaxed wild garden area and substantial lawn areas, interspersed with manicured hedging, topiary, and mature specimen trees.

A focal point of the property is the tiled courtyard, opening from the house and swimming pool building. This impressive terrace is perfect for family BBQ’s or large summer parties.

In all 2.7 acres.
