Weir House is set in its own pretty garden which boasts a large lawn, children’s play area and a BBQ
Weir House, set in its own pretty garden with a private drive and a huge magnolia growing up over the front door.
The kitchen has flooring in honey coloured Cotswold-stone with Shaker units in Farrow and Ball off-white, there is big island unit and American style fridge freezer. Doors lead out onto the terrace, so lunches and dinners outside under the vine-covered pergola are an enticing summer possibility. At the far end of the dining room there’s an arch to the oak-floored games room, which is dominated by a 82″ flat screen TV with surround sound; and a wall of bookshelves. Children have a cupboard full of toys, a special table to play on, and beanbags for flopping, as well as their den under the stairs. There is a large drawing room; it has a Gothic arched fireplace in stone and a high-pitched ceiling and massive beams. The drawing room is altogether softer, gentler and elegant, it has a large Savonnerie style rug, and is decorated in rosy-red, ochre and off white. A huge ottoman sits between the fire and a long three seater sofa, on each side of the fireplace are two small antique buttoned French chairs, and in addition, large comfortable armchairs.
A door to the left of the fireplace leads into a corridor, which open the three downstairs bedrooms. They all have en-suite bathrooms or shower rooms. The double room, the first on the right of the corridor, has a French door leading out onto the South terrace. The magnificent king-size four-poster, faces the South terrace. The walls are painted a Farrow and Ball ochre. There’s a sofa and a chair at the desk: it’s a good place to retreat to when there’s a lot going on elsewhere. The en-suite shower, tiled in buff marble to match the top of the vanity unit, has a shower big enough for two. Next door is a ravishing twin room with a distinctly French feel, the two nineteenth century French beds and the Louis XVI chair are upholstered in a red and white Colefax and Fowler toile de jouy to match the curtains. The walls are grey, and there’s a sparkling Venetian glass mirror over the bureau. Its en-suite shower room is tiled in grey and white Carrara marble. The third, with two windows and a French door facing west onto the north terrace, has twin mahogany four-posters dressed in a Colefax and Fowler print of yellow roses on beige and off-white striped background. The en-suite bathroom is tiled in beige marble, the bath has a Niagara tap and an overhead shower. The other two bedrooms are on the first floor, up the stairs from the hall. The twin room is wallpapered in a deep green stripe offset by white bed hangings, white curtains on the four windows, and a white chaise longue. It has an en-suite bathroom, tiled in Carrara marble to match the top of a twin basined antique French pitch-pine vanity unit. The fifth bedroom is large and magnificent, with a high pitched ceiling and an impressive six foot wide half tester bed, hung in a blue and white Colefax and Fowler toile de jouy. The walls are a Farrow and Ball tobacco brown, and the furniture upholstered and covered in blues and off whites. Up a flight of narrow stairs in the bedroom, facing the bed, is the large en-suite bath and shower room, with a teak-topped vanity unit and bath surround.
