The Property:

Colleton House is positioned within the sought-after village of Twyford and enjoys peaceful living within this picturesque country house setting. A long gravel driveway leads you to the principal house passing mature communal grounds which wrap around the home. The rooms here are beautifully proportioned with high ceilings and offer comfortable and versatile living throughout. This two double bedroom apartment has its own private front door with stairs rising to the apartment landing which guides you through the home. A particular feature of this apartment is the large sitting room which has an abundance of light and a wonderful feature fireplace. The dining room which can also be used as a study is near the kitchen, with the kitchen having a range of base and eye level units and dual aspect windows. A bathroom and separate WC complete the accommodation. Sweeping expanses of lawn completely surround the apartment with an avenue of formal evergreen trees making it a great place to wonder on a warm summers' day. There is gated access from the grounds of Colleton House into Hunters Park which leads you onto stunning countryside walks.
