From the beautiful, ivy-lined entrance to the house, you will appreciate immediately the charm and grandeur of this elegant property. With all the character of a traditional country house, but the perks of a modern refurbishment, Draper House truly has the best of both worlds. There is a charming hallway with lovely wooden furniture and lighting to welcome you inside.
Within the main house, there are two living rooms, one in a fabulous open plan design, alongside the large dining area and kitchen. This first living room has two huge sofas and a beautiful old stone fireplace with a wood-burning stove. The dining area has ample seating for ten people, and plenty of space for all the party to drink, dine and relax. The second living room is separated from this main space, and enjoys a comfy sofa and large flatscreen HD TV with Bluetooth soundbar – the perfect room for a bit of downtime.
The modern fitted kitchen is a well-appointed. It has two electric ovens and an induction hob, as well as a vast central island to make cooking more sociable. There’s a couple of stools so you can enjoy your breakfast at the bar, or perhaps just keep the chef company. Alongside the kitchen is a large conservatory with views out over the colourful, expansive gardens.
The four bright and airy bedrooms are incredibly spacious, with simple, tasteful décor and a real sense of home comfort. The master bedroom has a super-king sized bed and large en-suite bathroom, while the other three rooms have two single beds, which can be arranged either separately or as super-king doubles. One of these twin rooms is en-suite, while the other two share a large family bathroom. All three bathrooms are incredibly sleek and stylish, while retaining a homely feel.
