Saffron House is an imposing country house, constructed in a Georgian style and occupies a secluded location, which is ideal for privacy and security. It is a magnificent property for entertaining on a grand scale, with a spacious reception hall and beautifully proportioned reception rooms with excellent ceiling heights and inter linking double doors.

The kitchen/breakfast room has been extensively fitted with bespoke cabinets incorporating a large central island with a part granite and oak work surface and four-oven oil fired Aga, as well as double doors leading to the terrace. There is a utility room with built in cabinets and boot room with access to the back door. There is also a spacious sitting room/playroom and on the other side of the reception hall is a temperature controlled wine room and large study with stunning views over the garden. On the west side of the house there is the indoor swimming pool complex with a shower, cloakroom and changing facilities.

The gardens and grounds extend to approximately 17 acres. The present owners have spend a lot of time professionally landscaping the property, with a large York stone paved terrace to the south western elevation looking out across the garden and beyond. There is a substantial covered area immediately to the rear of the house, ideal for alfresco dining. To one side is a hard tennis court and behind is a soft play area with bark chippings.

The rear garden has been laid out with avenues of trees creating a wonderful vista looking out towards the open countryside. There is a large well stocked lake with an island incorporating 2 Willow trees. A formal garden area hosts a central rose garden, symmetrically laid out Yes trees, box hedging and an Espalier Hornbeam hedge. To the other side of the drive there is a recently planted orchard surrounded by a field Maple hedge. Beyond is a large paddock with a field shelter.

The annex adjoins the stables and consists of a kitchen/dining/sitting room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
