Situated in the heart of Houston village sits arguably one of the most impressive residences in the form of Houston House, a B-listed mansion house that was converted in the mid 90’s into six individual residences built around six acres of maintained lawn gardens and an ornate pond.
The West Wing is to the front as you enter the gated gravel driveway and is sure to impress all who view. The property itself has 267 square meters of internal accommodation over three levels with main door access with a section of private lawn to the front.
Immediately as you enter the property there is a date stamp of the original build date of 1625 and this leads to a reception hallway that has a utility and WC off as well as a period staircase leading to the first floor drawing room. The kitchen is also accessed from the hallway and is situated on a lower level. A door off the kitchen gives access to a secret staircase which connects the ground floor to the drawing room above. The dining room is also off the kitchen which in turn leads to a second cloakroom, second staircase in the hallway and an additional storage room that has its own front access door.
On the first floor the drawing room has the stairwell from the reception hallway leading to it and benefits from double aspect windows to both front and rear and a fantastic ‘Claygate’ fireplace. Also on this floor are a library, sitting room and storage cupboards in the hallway along with access to the secret staircase. All the front window formations overlook the magnificent garden grounds.
The second floor level of this property contains four double bedrooms connected via an inner hallway naturally lit by Velux windows. A walk in linen cupboard and a boiler cupboard housing both gas central heating boilers are also situated on this floor. There are two separate bathrooms completing the accommodation on this floor.
The elegance of this property cannot be questioned and the accommodation is completed by a Great Hall that each resident within Houston House has joint ownership of and is available for use by mutual consent from the other owners. This room has a wealth of period features with oak flooring and imposing period fireplace, providing its own kitchen and toilet facilities.
This property has a single garage within the lock up area to the side of the property and there is a communal wash bay within this area. Parking is provided to both the front of the property and to the rear adjacent to the garaging.
