Beckdale House was built in the 1920’s originally as a Dower House on the Duncombe Park Estate and was the home for a number of years to the 6th Lord Feversham and family. When Lord Feversham moved back to Duncombe Park the present owners set about improving and extending the accommodation to produce the outstanding country estate that it is today. The front door opens into a grand entrance hall that leads into a reception hall with a sweeping oak staircase to a galleried landing. There are five reception rooms offering a huge choice of entertaining space. The impressive drawing room has a feature fireplace, French doors into the conservatory, access to the western gardens and double doors leading into the formal dining room off which is a bar area. Beyond this is the oak panelled study and the splendid billiards room. To the opposite end of the house is the breakfast kitchen which boasts corian work surfaces, Gaggenau and Miele appliances and also has planning permission to extend. Adjacent is a useful utility room with a boot room and side conservatory leading off it, there are also two cloakrooms that complete the ground floor accommodation. The generous master bedroom suite is located on the first floor, it boasts two luxury modern bathrooms as well as a dressing room featuring a passenger lift. There are four further double bedrooms of which three are en-suite as well as a house bathroom. There is a staircase leading up to the full height attic space that provides a large storage space or potential to convert to additional accommodation subject to the necessary permissions.

There is a garage complex with ample space for five cars, which also incorporates an office and two self-contained two-bedroom flats. There is a gym, changing room and pool room, with a heated outdoor swimming pool just beyond in a beautiful, sheltered walled garden. Steps lead up to a sweep of lawn with pretty herbaceous borders and to a rose and wisteria clad pergola and high beech hedge that leads to the Astroturf tennis court. To the front of the property is a balustrade terrace providing a marvellous outside entertaining space and stunning views of the grounds and the rolling countryside beyond. Steps lead down to tiered lawns and an L-shaped railed paddock sweeps south and west around the house and garden. There are further paddocks east of the drive and close by the stables, beyond this is the established woodland providing wonderful wooded walks.
