Show details




The Old Laundry is a generously proportioned detached family home set in approximately 3.4 acres adjacent to Deanwood Park Golf course and with far reaching views over rolling countryside. Situated in the grounds of an old Victorian country house, The Old Laundry was originally built in the 1950’s and has recently undergone a high specification renovation.

The Old Laundry
The Old Laundry sits alongside an impressive Victorian country house, thought to have been built in about 1870. The main house has seen various uses in the past and is now divided into a small number of exclusive large homes. The Old Laundry was originally built in the 1950’s but underwent a significant renovation in 2004 to create this stunning split-level contemporary family home which has accommodation suitable for entertaining, home working and multi-generational families. Of particular note is the sitting room which benefits from a semi-circular glazed wall at one end giving views across the rear gardens, paddocks and golf course beyond. Outside, the property is approached via a block paved drive providing parking for several cars and leads to a large double garage with separate gardener’s toilet and self-contained annexe above with kitchen, shower room and bedroom. The rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn and lead directly to the stabling and paddocks which stretch all the way down to the golf course at the bottom. In addition to this, there is also a separate vegetable garden with fruit trees, shed and greenhouse to the far side of the drive, reached through a pair of wrought iron gates.
