Summersbury Hall offers you the opportunity to live in something unique. Set in carefully tended gardens, this magnificent former country manor house in Shalford is an architectural masterpiece that exudes a historical splendour, unrivalled by modern buildings.
The owner of this ground floor apartment has carefully, and sympathetically decorated and created a stunning haven of modern luxury. The kitchen/diner, with its dark units and white quartz countertops (contrasting wonderfully with the large format herringbone Karndean flooring), is set off by a period feature double doorway that looks out over your garden terrace and communal lawns. One of the most appealing elements of this apartment are the large sash windows which provide a distinctive character to the property. The lounge area for example is host to a spectacular large floor-to-ceiling, five panel bay window within which our client has placed a splendid horse-shoe sofa. The main bedroom boasts french doors with architectural curves at their peak (again, floor-to-ceiling); a second bedroom provides additional living space with the added functional benefit of loft storage. A modern, well-appointed bathroom adds to the overall sense of luxury. All in all, this ‘old-meets-new’ property, with its wide internal doors, feature windows and superb appointments certainly does not disappoint, and viewing is highly recommended.
Walking distance from the apartment is the extremely pretty village of Shalford, which provides shopping for everyday needs along with a railway station, post office, village shop, chemist, two pubs, coffee shop, tennis and cricket club. There is an excellent selection of schools in the area including the highly regarded Shalford Infant and Pre-School. The beautiful surrounding countryside offers wonderful walking, riding and cycling opportunities.
