Hansard House is an exceptional property, which prior to the current ownership operated as a hotel dating from 1876, and has been completely remodelled and updated in the last four years. The origins of the building are apparent from the proportions, with high ceilings and spacious rooms. The property has been finished to a very high standard with polished ceramic tiles throughout the reception hall and kitchen and American Walnut flooring in the sitting room, study and dining room.
The accommodation comprises a beautiful and naturally lit entrance hall with ceramic tile flooring and a galleried oak staircase to the upper floors, an impressive dual aspect 30’ drawing room with a bay window to the front and bifold doors to the south facing sun terrace, formal dining room and a superb family kitchen/breakfast room with integrated Siemens ovens, including a steam oven, and induction hob, drawer fridges and a corian work surface, all ideal for entertaining with bifold doors to the terrace. There is also a comfortable sitting room, study, large utility room with access to the side of the house, a lift which is the only remaining feature of the hotel, and a downstairs WC.
On the first floor is a galleried landing, five bedrooms and a linen room. The master bedroom has a well-designed dressing room and an en suite bath and shower room with a claw foot bath, slate flooring and walk in shower. There are four further double bedrooms, all of which have en suites. There is further scope for accommodation on the second floor, with a staircase up to a further loft room, ideally suited to a large games room and loft storage, subject to the relevant planning permissions.
Hansard House is approached from Northview Road onto a large driveway and parking area for several cars, providing access to the garage, house and terrace. Steps lead to pedestrian access to the beautiful natural stone paved and walled terrace along the rear of the house, bordered by raised planted beds and featuring palms and fig trees. The terrace enjoys a sheltered southerly aspect and is completely private with space for several seating areas. The purpose built double garage has two roll top doors and an area for a workshop/storage.
