7 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
Great Canfield Park is a charming Grade II listed country home set within approximately 5.64 acres of well-maintained gardens, grounds and paddocks, with a good range of outbuildings and excellent equestrian facilities. Further land is available to rent. The original part of Great Canfield Park was built in 1456 by the de Vere family (Earl of Oxford) as a hunting lodge. Maintaining impressive character throughout, many of its original features have been retained, including a wealth of oak, wall and roof timbers, leaded lights and two priest holes.
As you enter the house, you are greeted by a large entrance hallway with extensive exposed wall and ceiling timbers, a large traditional fireplace with brick back, sides and hearth as well as an impressive staircase to the rear of the hallway, which leads to the first floor. The ground floor accommodation is very well arranged with the main reception rooms enjoying views across the gardens and grounds. Both the dining and drawing rooms have wonderful traditional features with large brick fireplaces and exposed beams. The drawing room provides access to the gardens to the south east of the house. The dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room has a homely feel with stone flag flooring and AGA, with a sizeable boot room and connecting pantry. This then leads to an open plan family room, with a comfortable seating area and french doors leading out to the terrace. The ground floor also has a spacious study and downstairs WC.
On the first floor the large principal bedroom has a magnificent raised ceiling with extensive wall and ceiling timbers as part of an impressive eight sided king post. There is also a large en suite bathroom and dressing room. There are six further bedrooms on the first floor, one of which is currently used as a work/ playroom. With a separate staircase to the rear of the house, the playroom/bedroom seven would make for excellent guest or au pair accommodation. In Addition there is also a fitted laundry room.
