An attractive stone built country house enjoying a very private position with gardens and grounds of approximately 26.5 acres.
Swinnow Hill is a fine country house which is believed to date from approximately 1636 and originally started as two more modest properties. It has been sympathetically altered and considerably extended to now provide well-presented accommodation of close to 6,000 square feet, with a principal property and a self-contained apartment which is ideal for either staff or a dependent family member. The property enjoys a private and slightly elevated position which is approached down a long private drive and surrounded by formal gardens with open fields beyond.
The house is approached on the ground floor through an entrance vestibule which opens up to an entrance hall with a cloakroom off. The principal reception rooms enjoy a fantastic south facing outlook to the front overlooking the formal gardens and comprise of a drawing room with open fire, dining room with bay window, sitting room opening to the morning room with French doors to the terrace and a breakfast kitchen with a pantry, further cloakroom, utility room and stairs leading up to a games room. The principal bedroom suite comprises of a bedroom, dressing room, shower room and separate bathroom and garden room overlooking the sheltered terrace. To the first floor a central landing leads to a guest bedroom with dressing room and en-suite bathroom, four further bedrooms and a house bathroom. The rear hall leads to the apartment which is located on the first floor and comprises of a large landing, sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The property is approached up a long private drive that leads to remote controlled gates which in turn give access to a further drive up to the house. There is a large parking and turning area to the rear with access to two double garages.
The gardens are a particular feature with formal gardens surrounding the house, which are primarily laid to lawn interspersed with mature specimen trees and a large south facing terrace which includes a sheltered seating area and access to a garden room.
