Rushdown House was originally built in
1929 and has been in the same ownership
for some 30 years. The property has been
extended and renovated during their
tenure to make it the much loved family
home it is today. Central to the house is
the impressive drawing room with its open
fireplace and a flank of large windows
overlooking the gardens with French
doors leading out to the terrace. There
are two wings to the house which lead
off either end of the drawing room. The
easterly wing comprises the main entrance
hall, together with the master bedroom
suite, kitchen/breakfast room and a study.
The kitchen has an Aga and bespoke
fitted painted units and smart corian
In the westerly wing of the house there
is a rear hallway, also with access to the
outside, as well as a guest bedroom suite,
the main study and the sitting room. A
corridor runs behind the drawing room
and links the kitchen to the rear hallway
where there is also access to the dining
room. All the ground floor rooms have
sizeable windows, allowing in a wealth of
natural light and taking full advantage of
the garden on all sides.
At each end of the house there is a staircase
leading to the upstairs to three further
double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The house occupies a quiet and very
secluded position on the edge of this
popular village. It is approached through
electric wrought iron gates and the
gravel driveway, flanked by laurels and
trees, rhododendrons, meanders through
woodland up to the front of the house.
The rear aspect looks out over a wide
expanse of lawn stretching out to meet the
bank of mature rhododendrons, azaleas
and woodland beyond.
There is a network of pathways in amongst
the ferns and trees and one leads through
to an enclosed area housing the allweather
tennis court and swimming pool
with pretty summer house.
Outside the front of the main house there
is ample parking for cars as well as a
double garage and a separate two bedroom
lodge. An archway divides these two and
leads you through to the vegetable garden
and links you to the woodland pathways.
Beyond the woodland is a large paddock
(2.49 acres) housing two garages on its
boundary, as well as a helipad.
Please note there is an overage clause on
the pony paddock. Details can be obtained
via the agent.
