Savills is delighted to present Ardeen, a handsome Georgian period property in fine fettle and decorative order throughout, set on an immense site measuring approximately 0.93 of an acre. The site has approx. 143 metres of frontage onto Barrington's avenue itself extending as far as the Atlantic Pond.
Accessed off an unassuming entrance on Barrington's Avenue, Ardeen has both pedestrian and vehicular access points. Behind solid wood gates a gravel driveway guides you to the main entrance, where you will find ample parking and a feature Californian Redwood tree standing proudly on the north elevation of the property. Here in the main driveway, you will begin to appreciate original features that Ardeen still retains, such as cast-iron rainwater goods, weighted sash windows, decorative bargeboards and a cast-iron boot scraper to threshold.
Stepping inside the main hallway via a rebuilt porch, you are greeted by high ceilings, original plasterwork and a lovely solid wood staircase with gradual steps leading up to the first floor. The property is in very good decorative order throughout, all accommodation is generous but also practical in its proportions and layout. On the ground floor, you will find four reception rooms, each with its own intact period features and differing aspects of the grounds, a south facing kitchen/breakfast room with utility room overlooking the front garden, a study and guest shower room. Upstairs you will find four double bedrooms, bathroom and an attic level study, the master bedroom is a particularly beautiful room with its own en suite and separate dressing room.
The grounds offer a selection of outdoor spaces to be enjoyed. On the southerly elevation, there is a level lawn area with gravel pathways and rose lined pergolas, this space is completely screened by an ivy clad stone wall with a secret doorway leading out onto Barrington's avenue. A lovely patio area provides a quiet and private seating area which is a perfect sun trap, a passage way beyond the patio leads to an internal courtyard which has a boiler house, storage shed and retired outhouse.
