Still Meadows is an impressive Georgian residence, formally the home of artist William Sickert, which has been sympathetically extended to create contemporary single storey, independent garden level accommodation, which complements the classic style and accommodation of the formal upper level rooms.
This handsome Georgian town house, which has retained a wealth of period detail, sits beautifully in wonderful gardens, of half an acre, which are divided into classic, oriental and contemporary ‘rooms’ and sun terraces enjoying a wealth of mature shrubs and trees and with a beautiful pergola and timber framed summer house.
The exquisitely presented, stylish accommodation is entered at ground floor level where there is an impressive double aspect formal drawing room and charming en-suite guest bedroom. In addition there are 2 further beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms on the first floor.
The contemporary garden level accommodation has been sympathetically extended to create a unique single storey independently accessed living and bedroom area which blends beautifully with the classic styles and tradition of the main house. The accommodation at this level comprises a bespoke kitchen and ‘butlers bar’ utility room, music room, day room, garden room, formal dining conservatory and en-suite ‘concealed’ bedroom, all enjoying access onto the fine sun terraces and gardens.
Externally the property has a gated approach with plenty of off street parking and double garaging. The stunning well stocked gardens wrap beautifully around the house and comprise several impressive sun terraces and decks, 2 ornamental ponds and a number of classic and contemporary well stocked garden ‘rooms’ as well as formal lawns. There is also a charming and secluded timber framed summer house and a pretty pergola.
