Draper & Company are excited to bring to market for the first time, a rare opportunity to acquire Fenton House, a substantial detached residence set back and discreetly positioned, occupying a wonderful position, and enjoying uninterrupted views across Hadley Green.
This magnificent home has a grand gated entrance directly from Hadley Green that sweeps all visitors via a bordered gravel driveway through magnificently kept grounds toward the main house, thereby creating an extremely private and secure residence, all set within protected parklands.
Fenton House is made up of two separate residences and an additional outhouse serving a large swimming pool, extensive rear garden, and entertaining area.
The main house is largely arranged over two floors including a dramatic formal entrance hall connecting two receptions, a dedicated dining room, separate eat-in kitchen, study, utility room, family bathroom and a hidden bar . A wide sweeping staircase connects this floor with the first floor which includes four bedrooms and four bathrooms, complimented by two private terraces overlooking the gardens below. The property further benefits from an entire second floor of loft space accessed via a separate staircase, ideal for storage but also with the potential to develop according to the owner's needs.
The adjoining guest house is currently arranged over two floors with the ground floor dedicated to entertaining space including a full-sized snooker table and three sets of French doors that open out on to the paved pool area and grounds to the rear. The front section of this floor has been converted into an expansive garage, large enough to incorporate several large vehicles and large additional storage options. The first floor of the guest house includes a fully contained flat with two further double bedrooms, a large reception with garden views, kitchen, and family bathroom.
Further features include an outhouse to the rear garden containing a plant room, changing facilities for pool guests and a small indoor entertaining space. Both the main house and guest house are surrounded by lush well-kept garden beds, immaculate lawns, and impressive trees are found scattered throughout the property.
Development potential for the entire site could also be considered subject to the usual planning consent and local restrictions.
