Bilbrook Lawns is a handsome detached period house originally dating, we understand, from the late 1700's with later Regency additions in the mid 1800's. The current owners have skilfully and sympathetically improved and enhanced the accommodation to create a beautifully presented, versatile family home with a wealth of traditional and character features, which have been carefully combined with well appointed modern fittings. The property boasts substantial well proportioned accommodation, with tall ceilings and large windows providing light and airy rooms and a lovely orientation and outlook over the gardens. The property enjoys two principal reception rooms on the ground floor, complemented by an informal study/family room and kitchen/breakfast room with four oven Aga and enjoying views over the gardens. On the first floor there is a master bedroom and guest bedroom with en suite facilities and three further double bedrooms.
