A Georgian Classic of ‘Remarkable Distinction’
West Hanney House, with its rubbed red bricks and panels of greyish-purple bricks, prominent keystones and curious symmetrical design provides an opportunity to enjoy all the benefits of a grand country house with the flexibility and manageability of a smaller property.
The principal house with its spacious and light filled reception hall, flanked as it is by the main entertaining rooms of drawing room, panelled sitting and dining room (with associated Butler’s pantry) all arranged in perfect symmetry, gives an imposing first impression.
The kitchen is fully fitted with a four door oil fired Aga, Miele four ring conductor hob and double oven and off it there is a room which works either as a home office or supplementary sitting room. Leading out of the kitchen is a series of rooms including a larder, utility and boot room.
A fine central staircase, three balusters to each step, turned and carved, leads to a landing on the first floor with a Chinese Chippendale pattern balustrade, two large bedrooms and associated bathroom as well as the master bedroom suite with its large bathroom and dressing room.
The second floor is approached via centralised, panelled double-doors leading off the first floor landing and accommodates four bedrooms and a bathroom.
The courtyard at West Hanney represents an exceptional
range of traditional buildings. It is a long L-shaped, two
storey block, north of the main house made of rubble stone with a stone tile roof and two louvred turrets. It offers
a large array of potential uses but is currently arranged as stables, storage and garages. In addition there is a large traditional barn and a granary.
The Pigeon House is situated opposite the main house in the heart of the courtyard and is a three-bedroom cottage.
West Hanney sits elegantly in the middle of its entirely-walled, three-acre garden, offering both privacy and enhanced security.
