Ryelands is an attractive period house standing in beautiful established gardens and grounds with a wildlife pool and grazing land.
Bought from the Earl of Bradford's Estate over thirty years ago, Ryelands has since been a much loved family home for two generations. The house is believed to date from the 18th century and has evolved over the centuries to include a recent extension built in 1992. It now offers well presented, light and comfortable family accommodation which retains its period charm with oak doors, polished wood floors, impressive oak staircase and exposed beams while embracing modern day features including double glazed wood windows throughout and oil fired central heating.
The front door opens to a hallway off which is the triple aspect drawing room with views over the garden. The traditionally styled kitchen, fitted by Kenton Jones of Welshpool, incorporating an AGA range has views over the land to the lake beyond. An inner hall, with cloakroom, leads to the dining room featuring French doors opening to the west facing terrace. The pretty sitting room beyond, with wood burning Clear View stove, benefits from double aspect views over the gardens. The main staircase leads to a galleried landing lit by a glass atrium off which is the guest bedroom and master suite with bedroom, dressing room and bathroom. Three further bedrooms lead off the landing and are served by a family bathroom and additional staircase.
Gardens and grounds
The house is approached via a gravel driveway which swings round to the front of the house through manicured lawns with views across a post and railed paddock to the beautiful wildlife pool beyond. To one side is a period outbuilding with open bays, work shop and store rooms. This has the potential to be converted to either garaging or stabling if required.
To the west of the house is a paved terrace, ideal for outdoor dining and entertaining. A lawned garden with stocked borders beyond is contained within high hedges.
The beautifully maintained paddock extends round the wildlife pool with a field gate opening to a further field ideal for grazing. In all the gardens, grounds and land extend to 6.38 acres (2.577 ha)
