Description
Beech Court, built in 1690, is a classical William and Mary house
Listed Grade II * and is of architectural and historical importance.
The eastern façade has a central glazed door with shell portico.
The ground and first floor have small pane sash and stone mullion
windows and the eastern elevation is dressed stone under a
parapet. The house is constructed of stone under a slate roof.

In recent years the house has undergone a programme of
extensive modernisation and improvement carefully retaining all
appropriate features to the period including period fireplaces,
ornate ceiling plaster work, shuttered sash windows and window
seats. In 2017 the majority of the interior was redecorated, all
windows inside and out redecorated, some floor boards have been
restored and polished.
The elegant and light accommodation has well-proportioned
rooms and is arranged over three floors. The impressive reception
hall has a magnificent, hand carved original oak staircase. All
ground floor rooms and first floor rooms are arranged around a
central hall and landing. The drawing room, dining room, sitting
room and morning room all have period fireplaces. The morning
room, dining room and breakfast kitchen with Aga open to the
garden.
The first floor is arranged with two principal bedrooms with en
suite bathrooms and one has a dressing area and spacious
sitting room/nursery. A further two bedrooms offer double aspect
windows overlooking gardens.
The second floor offers a surprising 36 foot bedroom/cinema with
an important barrel-vaulted ceiling, a large family bathroom and
kitchen/laundry room.
Gardens and Grounds
Beech Court is approached through electrically operated entrance
gates leading to a gravel drive and parking area with turning circle.
A field interspersed with mature trees with park railing creates a

stone wall. A wrought iron gate on stone pillars opens to a central
pathway with lawn on either side leading to the front door.

Terraces give access to the main gardens which are predominantly
to the west of the property and are accessible from the kitchen/
breakfast room and study/morning room. These gardens are also
enclosed by stone walls with a gravel path running through the centre
of the lawns, leading onto the pasture to the rear which has vehicular
access to the lane. There are well stocked borders and a number
of mature trees. The flag stone terraces continue to a further area
where there is a pergola and the path leads to the greenhouse and
garden room. There are further grounds to the south of the property,
connecting up with the side field + a second field.
