This elegant two double bedroom luxury apartment forms part of a magnificent Grade II listed Victorian country home which dates back to the 1860s.
Set in a secluded position and surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens with stunning open countryside views, this home enjoys the best of both worlds as it is also only a short walk from the excellent village amenities and transport links into central London.
A set of stone steps to the side lead up to a pretty part glazed door which opens into a grand entrance hallway, its wide sweeping staircase taking you up to the apartment`s own front door.
Once inside, the apartment`s neutral palette and cream carpets flow throughout the property creating a tranquil space. The owners have created an exacting level of finish due to their exceptional attention to detail which showcases the home`s period features whilst delivering 21st century contemporary living.
First on the left is the elegant living room whose high ceiling, windows and period fireplace add character and warmth. Next door is a useful guest cloakroom.
The dining room, conveniently placed next to the kitchen, is a charming space with a cleverly fitted granite topped table and fitted benches for a delightful dining experience.
At the rear the sunny kitchen has plenty of space for a breakfast table and stools and is fitted with a range of painted base and wall mounted units with gleaming granite work tops. There is an integrated Neff double oven, under counter fridge and freezer, a Neff dishwasher and a washing machine.
Climbing the stairs to the second floor the turret`s stunning arched and stained-glass windows deliver spectacular far reaching views and natural light in abundance. It is a delightful space to either sit and marvel at the views or work at a desk.
There are two graceful large double bedrooms, both with en-suites and stunning views. The master bedroom has a useful lobby area with storage leading to its luxurious bathroom with roll top bath whilst the second bedroom has a period fireplace and a fitted double wardrobe.
The beautiful grounds surrounding Bidborough Court extend to about 3 acres in total with lush green sloping lawns to the rear meeting spectacular open countryside views. The screened driveway sweeps around the front of the house to a detached block of garages with ample parking spaces to the side where the apartment sits.
With open countryside on its doorstep and being a stone`s throw from easy access to the M25 and fast rail connections to central London, this is the perfect home for couples with professional needs. A must see!
