Little Danley is a substantial family home with flexible accommodation located in impressive, peaceful and secluded grounds on a highly regarded private lane. The house was constructed in the 1930’s and extended and refurbished by the current owners in 2004, creating a superb light and spaciousfeeling throughout.
The delightful drawing room with working marble fireplace and wooden mantelpiece opens into the impressive triple aspect dining room creating an elegant space for both formal and informal entertaining.
The well-appointed kitchen/breakfast/living room has a generous range of bespoke painted units, granite worktops, electric Aga and an additional integrated double oven with hob. The dining area has a wood burning stove and French doors leading to the large terrace at the back of the house, ideal for outdoor entertaining. The extensive reception space also includes a study, family room with open plan kitchen and shower room which could easily provide an annexe with its own access if required.
The bedroom accommodation is particularly generous with a spacious master bedroom suite, walk in dressing room and bathroom en-suite. The 6 further bedrooms are arranged over two floors and are served by 3 additional bathrooms.
Little Danley is approached via automated timber gates, opening onto a shingle driveway providing
ample parking for cars around the attractive and beautifully planted turning circle, double garage and an ornamental pond with waterfall. A spur from the main drive leads to a separate area (screened from the house and formal gardens) comprising stable yard, manege, paddocks, machinery stores and extensive parking for equestrian and gardening use.
In a secluded setting of approximately 4.5 acres, the beautiful and well established gardens and grounds have been meticulously planned as a series of rooms and are a particular feature lying principally to the south of the property. The formal landscaped areas include a charming rose garden that overlooks the all-weather tennis court, an exquisite orchard featuring espalier fruit trees and fruit cage.
There is also a secluded pool area with ample space for seating and al fresco dining, shower and changing facilities accessed off both the main lawn and a delightful winding path leading to a pergola walkway.
The recently refurbished equestrian facilities are a real feature of the property with an allweather manege, stables with power and water, tack room, outside WC, hay store and around 1.8 acres of paddocks.
