Tower House is a strikingly different conversion of a c19 former stable block and kennels to Gumley Hall. It is attractively presented and retains many original period features which include an imposing clock tower with working clock.
GROUND FLOOR ACCOMMODATION
Tower House offers unique and well-proportioned accommodation, presented with imagination and flair. It is arranged over two floors, with a central staircase rising from the ground floor, through to the top of the Clock Tower. Most of the rooms are orientated to enjoy views over the private mature gardens through ornate windows. High quality fittings and fixtures have been used throughout complimenting the many original features such as exposed beams, stable stalls, high ceilings, exposed brickwork, herringbone floor and wide stable doors.
The double front doors open into a reception hall with a central staircase. The impressive reception room to the right is a superb living/entertaining space featuring a splendid limestone fireplace with herringbone brickwork and a multi fuel burning stove inset, a locally made stained glass feature window, integrated bookcase and underfloor heating under wide planked locally reclaimed timber flooring.
The spacious kitchen is fitted with an excellent range of units under granite work surfaces. Integrated appliances include a Neff fridge freezer and a double drawer Fisher and Paykel dishwasher. A feature of the kitchen is the oil fired Marshall cooker set within an Inglenook. Oak steps lead up to a raised sitting area with underfloor heating. A door off the kitchen leads to a rear elevated terrace with views over the gardens and woodlands beyond. Off the kitchen is a utility/boot room with base units, work surfaces, Belfast sink, space and plumbing for a washing machine and a storage cupboard. A door leads into a shower room. A door from the utility room leads to the side of the property.
LOWER GROUND FLOOR ACCOMMODAITON
Stairs lead down to the lower ground floor with the rear hall having double doors to the gardens and a door to a store. There are four bedrooms, an ensuite to bedroom two and a separate wet room. The principal bedroom has a walk in wardrobe and a door to the gardens; a contemporary glass partition opens into an ensuite with roll top bath, over-head rose shower, WC, bidet and a wash basin into a vanity unit.
Double electric timber gates open onto a cobble courtyard providing ample parking and a single garage with a studio/store is located to the left of the gates. The mature gardens are laid mainly to lawn with mature shrub and herbaceous borders and a variety of mature specimen trees to include three Yew Trees (subjects of Tree Preservation Orders). A mature grape-vine wraps around a pergola. To the centre of the lawn are steps, which formed part of the gardens to Gumley Hall. Tucked away is a summer house and garden store.
