DescriptionMemberton House is a delightful country house accessed from a sweeping driveway affording privacy and seclusion. Originally built in about 1800 on approximately 0.25ha (0.61acre) of beautifully maintained gardens, it is now a wonderful combination of old and new architecture. It was modernised by its current owners, architect and artist with no expense spared. Retaining many period features, the accommodation offers tremendous space and comfort.
In the original part of the house are the drawing room and formal dining room leading into a small conservatory. Upstairs are three double bedrooms, with countryside and distant sea views, each with en suite.In the newest part of the house is a dramatic double-height kitchen / dining room with a log-burning stove and south-facing floor to ceiling windows. A mezzanine, with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside, is an ideal area for reading and taking advantage of the natural sunlight that, even in winter, warms this magnificent room.
A newly-installed hand painted Farrow and Ball kitchen, is every cook's dream. Designed to take advantage of this spacious light-filled room, it has been carefully planned to make cooking a pleasure, while enjoying entertaining and family life. With its ultra-modern electric Aga, top of the range Neff ovens and induction hob, it has all been brought together with a stone worktop over hand-built, beautifully designed floor and wall units.
The kitchen / dining room leads into the family living room. This is a warm, cosy room, with a log- burning stove and floor to ceiling windows looking out onto a splendid garden. The garden is a lovely place to enjoy the wonderful countryside peace and is very safe for both children and small pets, having been recently fenced.
The mezzanine leads to three more rooms within the newer part of the house. The master bedroom, with its en suite and walk-in wardrobe, enjoys stunning views over the garden through its floor to ceiling sliding windows, leading onto a balcony running along the back of the house.
The second double bedroom, also with en suite, has a floor to ceiling window, with garden views and access to the balcony.
The third room is currently used as a study. This beautiful room is filled with light from floor to ceiling windows and has balcony access on one side. This room could easily have an en-suite installed, as plumbing is in place to facilitate this.
A long sweeping drive leads to the front of the house, which has a large parking area with views over the surrounding countryside. An enclosed courtyard, which leads from the kitchen, offers private outdoor living and a large entertaining space. Off the courtyard are a spacious garage/workshop, boiler room and comms room/store. The main garden is located to the rear of the house, with lawns, trees, shrubbery and seclusion. The balcony from the study and two bedrooms runs the length of the house overlooking the rear garden. The mature trees that surround the rear garden give a feeling of complete tranquility and privacy. Memberton House sits majestically on its approx 0.25 hectares (0.61 acre) site.
