Description

The Convent was built for the Sisterhood of St. Margaret's and was established in 1855 by John Mason Neale. The construction was commissioned in 1865 and ranks among the greatest works of the Victorian architect, George Edmund Street; best known for designing The Royal Courts of Justice in London. In the 1970s the convent was Listed Grade I; of 'exceptional architectural or historic interest.' The buildings were sensitively converted in the 1980s, taking special care to preserve the magnificent original features. In The Refectory these include Gothic arches, tiled floors, an Abbey stained glass window and a large Gothic arched window. There are also two stone fireplaces, the reading pulpit, Gothic arched oak doors and latticed arched timber framed roof.



The grounds extend to approximately 11 acres and are beautifully kept. They include wonderful lawns with mature hedging and well stocked beds and borders. There is also a heated swimming pool, two tennis courts, children's play area, fruit orchard, barbeque area and an attractive wooded area. The Chapel itself can be used by residents and has a snooker room with a full sized table. There is also ample visitor parking.



Entered via an impressive, vaulted ceiling entrance hall, the history and character is immediately admired with it original tiles flooring, exposed masonry and solid wood doors. The lounge is a beautifully light space with a mezzanine area above. The dining room is equally impressive with feature fire place and solid wood flooring. The kitchen is well equipped with a number of storage cupboards, spaces for appliances and space for table and chairs.



Moving on up to the first floor via the solid stone stairwell, the three bedrooms on offer are all doubles with the master bedroom boasting en suite shower and access to the family bathroom within.
