Watery Gate House is a superbly presented and recently extended and refurbished country house which occupies a tranquil rural  setting with exceptional views over the surrounding countryside. Originally, the property was a farmhouse with barns which have now been combined into a generous family house totaling approximately 5787 sq ft. The house is positioned off a quiet country lane and is set back from the road behind formal front gardens. There is additional land to the rear as well as a useful range of outbuildings.

The house is accessed either through a pedestrian gate along a gravel path to the front door or alternatively via a large gravel parking area adjacent to the garaging. An entrance porch leads into the main entrance hall from which the majority of the reception rooms can be accessed. The quality of workmanship is immediately apparent on arrival with deep skirting boards, high ceiling heights, oak doors and a mass of large double glazed sash windows providing excellent natural light throughout the house.

A study lies to one side of the entrance hall with the main lounge beyond. The lounge lies at the rear of the property and has a large stone open fireplace as a central feature. An open doorway leads into the conservatory which lies adjacent with a triple aspect to front, side and rear. The kitchen also lies adjacent to the entrance hall and is a particularly well presented room with a superb range of kitchen units surrounding a gas range cooker. There is a pair of sinks as well as an integrated fridge/freezer and coffee machine. The kitchen has a large central island with wooden surface and inset sink. Beyond the kitchen lies the utility room. Steps lead up to a ground floor bedroom wing with large sitting room, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The main staircase leads up to a spacious landing. There is a master bedroom with en suite, a guest bedroom with en suite, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. All the bathrooms have been recently fitted to a particularly high standard.

A substantial and particularly secure garage building lies adjacent to the main house. The garage building is separated into the main garage building with security roller doors and a mezzanine floor above. There is also a workshop area to one side. The garage is ideally suited for the storage and maintenance of a car collection.
