The property

Number 17 offers stylish, contemporary interiors which complement the retained period features and grandeur of the former country house and provides an aesthetically-pleasing home. On entering the apartment, the reception hall has two cupboards offering storage for outdoor wear and household items and leads through to the open-plan kitchen and living room, which has wood floor covering. A stone fireplace with a high mantel and raised hearth, provides a focal point, with an area for seating alongside and an alcove adjacent to the large window is the perfect setting for relaxed dining with views over the grounds. Fitted with modern, wall and base level cabinetry, with integrated appliances and granite work surfaces, the kitchen also features an island unit which creates a zoning divide to the living area.

The apartment has two bedrooms, one of which is currently in use as a study/gym, with the principal room having a modern, fully-tiled en suite shower room. The light and airy, family bathroom offers a bath with shower over and fittings which complement those in the shower room.
