As referred to in Pevsner, Bradford House is an historic 17th century Manor House with later 18th century additions plus a magnificent drawing room extension designed by Robert Adam Architects. The house has retained its lovely period architectural features throughout, including tall ceilings with moulded cornicing over some flagstone floors. There is a broad returning staircase and extensive oak panelling together with numerous open fireplaces and yet it is a practical family home that has been improved and extended by the current owners. The balance of the accommodation and the room volumes throughout are exceptional and it is a house for everyday family living as well as being able to entertain on a large scale.

The main drive leads to a turning circle and parking area in front of the house and gives direct access to the front door and main entrance. The hallway is positioned centrally with an open fire to one side and wooden panelling on the walls. The drawing room is a two part room being a music room at one end with the original flower room positioned immediately off it (now a useful glass store/servery) with the main entertaining room being set with a large open fire to one end, curved glass French doors with access and views to the gardens and a beautiful elliptical sky light that floods the room with light.

Other rooms of note are the dining room, again with an open fire, the garden room is a large, wonderfully light room and gives further access straight to the formal gardens. The kitchen/breakfast/family room is an 'L' shaped, a breakfast area at one end that flows immediately into the everyday family space again with outside access. Positioned immediately off the kitchen is the impressive and spacious sitting room. The house is well served by essential other rooms such as the butlers' pantry, rear hall with adjoining utility/boot room and the play room that forms part of the home office suite.

The bedroom accommodation is as equally impressive as the ground floor spaces with seven bedrooms and five bathrooms over the first and second floors. Of particular note are both the principal bedroom suite with its views of the gardens and generous ensuite bathroom as well as the main guest room being double aspect and light with views and lovely proportions. Bedrooms four and five also have large connecting bathrooms and the second floor bedrooms share a good sized shower room.

The Coach House
Outside a former 18th century Coach House with later additions has been converted into a four bedroom, two bathroom house with two very spacious ground floor rooms being the living room and kitchen/dining room. Separate from the Coach House accommodation and at one end of the building is a good sized gym with a sauna, workshop, storage, tack room and a run of five stables along the rear of the building.

Cottage
Positioned at the rear and behind the Coach House is a spacious additional cottage with three bedrooms and two bathrooms and a very large living room with adjacent kitchen, pantry and utility room. The cottage also has its own garage and garden at the rear accessed from the secondary drive.

Outside
The house is entered through electric gates between stone pillars and down an impressive avenue of ancient beech, American red oak, lime, sweet chestnut and London plane. The formal gardens are very beautiful being predominantly laid to lawn interspersed with stunning trees, gravel paths, a south facing terrace with part walled garden, an orchard, discreetly positioned tennis court and a large pond that is teeming with wildlife. Additionally there is greenhouse, chicken run, ample parking and the house sits beautifully within its nearly 33 acres of well-maintained land and surrounded by rolling countryside.

Equestrian facilities
The property is well organised and set up for equine use with 11 good sized stables as well as tack rooms, grooms tea room, fenced and watered paddocks and a recently refurbished manège.
