River Cottage in Wingmore is on the market for £2,250,000

River Cottage in Wingmore is a picturesque, timber-framed, Grade II listed property that has been extensively and sensitively remodelled and enlarged during the vendors’ 40-year ownership.

Principal rooms include a spacious drawing room with a heavily beamed ceiling and a large brick inglenook fireplace, a study with a fine dragon beam, and a flagstoned oak-framed garden room with windows across three walls.

The dining room has further beamed ceilings and a beautiful brick fireplace while the hand-made Mark Wilkinson kitchen fitted with limed oak units features a Provencal farmhouse floor which flows through to the breakfast room.

An oak staircase rises to a wide first floor landing with further exposed beams and mellow brickwork. The master bedroom is a particularly fine room with a vaulted ceiling, dressing room and a beautifully fitted en-suite with a free-standing ball and claw bath.

The magnificent indoor infinity swimming pool is in its own wing where there is also a seven-seater steam room and his and her shower rooms; overlooking the pool is a study and a gym, both with glazed walls.

Outside, the front garden has been landscaped as a series of ‘rooms’; discreetly hidden behind mature beech hedging is the tennis court.
