Hartlands succeeds in combining a traditional style of country house with excellent modern facilities. It provides accommodation on a grand scale extending to 14,564 sq ft. It is ideal for entertaining on a lavish scale and is perfect for 21st century family living.
Hartlands is approached by a large oak front door leading to a welcoming entrance vestibule which in turn leads through to the main reception hall with its beautiful oak flooring and ornate ceiling cornices. The reception hall is a particularly bright and spacious area with a circular galleried landing above. The drawing room is an exceptional principal reception room and is south facing, with direct access into the lovely private landscaped rear gardens. The fine walnut panelled study offers superb gadgetry, including a plasma television screen that can be hidden behind a Chinese inspired panel painting, at the touch of a button, a humidor that is built into the bookcase and a computer screen which, when not in use, can be skilfully accommodated within the bespoke desk. Also at this end of the house is the spacious dining room with large bay window overlooking the beautiful rear gardens, complete with servery kitchen area.
The sitting room and neighbouring secondary kitchen/utility room is almost opposite the beautifully designed principal kitchen which has a range of bespoke oak fronted eye level and base units complimented with solid granite work surfaces and integrated appliances.
Double doors lead through to the glassed roofed orangery/breakfast room that provides a charming eating area, with stairs leading to the first floor gym which in turn leads through to the master bedroom suite. The indoor swimming pool complex lies to the other side of the orangery and boasts a pool of just over 12 metres long with a spa tub to the far end. There are two changing rooms as well as a WC and steam room.
The magnificent main staircase sweeps up to the first floor where four guest bedroom suites are positioned around the circular galleried landing. The master bedroom suite is situated beyond and enjoys lovely views over the south facing gardens and towards the golf course beyond. It has twin dressing rooms and two luxurious en-suite bathrooms. There are two further bedroom suites within this private, family section of the house.
The gymnasium with its sitting area is positioned above the ground floor orangery and in turn provides private access to the roof top terrace which is decked and has fantastic views over the gardens. It also includes an outdoor shower and substantial sauna/solarium complex. There is a secondary set of stairs which leads to a large loft area which provides excellent storage.
The staff flat is accessed via its own door at the side of the property near the garage and comprises a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. It also benefits from its own private area of garden.
