Former vicarage Whitchurch House is a Grade II-Listed Georgian house built in the 18th century with 19th century re-modelling and extensions, and classical proportions with tall ceilings and large sash windows.

The driveway leads through parkland over a cattle grid into the garden, which is partly fenced and partly protected by a ha-ha, to a gravel parking area by the front door.

The gardens continue around to the south and west side of the house.

Internally, the house is well laid out with a beautiful morning room, and a drawing room to the west side of the attractive hall with a turned staircase lit by a cupola.

The well-fitted kitchen/breakfast room has a range-style cooker and adjoins the formal dining room.

At the rear is the gymnasium, laundry room, shower room and boot room.

On the first floor there are two main bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom and dressing room/bedroom.

There are four further bedrooms and two further bathrooms.

Beyond the kitchen is an annexe on two floors, with its own entrance door, kitchen/sitting room on the ground floor and a double bedroom and bathroom on the first floor.

The annexe is connected to the main house by doors at both levels.

On the eastern side of the house is the old courtyard with a traditional farm building on two storeys with potential for conversion, subject to planning.

There is a hard tennis court, a cricket ground, beautiful mature woodland and traditional parkland, all in hand but currently let on a short term grazing agreement.

Whitchurch House provides the opportunity to acquire a classical unspoilt Georgian house in a private but accessible location.

It is available through Savills (01392 455740) for offers in excess of £1.75 million.
