The stunning drawing room is one of the first general reception rooms in the main house. The luxuriously decorated room has large ornate windows overlooking the gardens, allowing lots of light into the room. It also benefits from a snug bar area, making it a great place to entertain.

In addition, to the other side of the orangery and to the north of the main house is an adjoining annexe, perfect for having family or guests to stay.

However, it could also be used as the perfect place to relax on a day-to-day basis, as it boasts a further sitting room, designated games room and cinema room - with built in black out blinds, wall mounted projector and surround sound system.

Ed Stoyle, head of residential sales for Savills in Yorkshire, says: “Beech House is a truly special property with a room for every occasion.

"Not only is this an incredibly handsome home, it has an abundance of space both inside and outside and benefits from the most fabulous of settings which offers both privacy and beautiful views.

Make your way into the house through the magnificent entrance hall boasting a beautiful beautiful Georgian staircase and ornate plasterwork. From here you can access a useful utility and cloakroom, a downstairs bathroom and the arched wine cellar for your finest bottles.

"Lovingly renovated and extended by the owners, this is an exceptional country house with a fantastic walled garden that has been developed over a number of years.”

Beech House is on the market with Savills for a guide price of £3,500,000.

Also in the main wing of the house is the formal dining room which again overlooks the outstanding gardens, and benefits from a feature fireplace and high ceilings perfect for a bespoke chandelier.
The open plan kitchen dining area is described as "the hub of the house". It incorporates a spacious orangery, which extends the dining/living area to the guest wing and enhances natural light levels. Within the orangery is a large dining table, as well as a wood burning fireplace, making it the perfect place to relax in any weather.
The kitchen boasts integrated appliances such as a wine fridge, as well as a double fridge and a central breakfast island, offering both storage and place to sit and enjoy a meal. The current owners have added a pop of lilac and modern lighting, creating a perfect blend of country-style kitchen and contemporary living.
Upstairs on the first floor is the main master bedroom, complete with its own dressing room and bathroom. The tastefully decorated room is very spacious with windows overlooking the gardens.
It has a unique built in bookcase as well as a fireplace, and a very large and modern bathroom, with standalone bath. It also benefits from its own dressing space with floor to ceiling built in wardrobes and a dressing table.
There are three other bedrooms on this floor, two of which benefit from an en-suite, as well as a family bathroom and a home office. Each room is as tastefully renovated as the master bedroom, with built in bookcase storage and modern bathroom fittings. The second floor has two cosy bedrooms and an attic room perfect for young children.
To the other side of the orangery is the adjoining annexe, which offers a host of additional living room and perks. In this part of the house, there are two more bedrooms, each with en-suite, plus a comms room with additional storage room and bathroom.
There is also a dedicated games room as well as a sizeable sitting area with bespoke sweeping staircase leading up to a cinema room.
The cinema room has built in Lutron controlled black out blinds and a wall mounted projector supported by an Artcoustic surround system giving a real cinematic experience.
Across from the house is a home office finished in fine walnut panelling, with original beams and an integral contemporary fireplace. It is spacious enough for a large desk and armchair.
It also offers a gym below the office, perfect for those working from home who want a designated place to exercise.
There is also a large garage and workshop created from a former stone built piggery. This underfloor heated and dehumidified gem is the ultimate man cave with fitted bar and sound system, the ideal place to house those special vehicles. For the gardener there is a potting shed and large English Heritage recognised greenhouse.
The property centres around a beautiful cobbled courtyard and is surrounded by seven acres of land.
The magical walled garden is described as a "highlight" of the exterior space. It has been recently restored by the current owners, and is a magnificent space to walk around and explore. It also offers a rounded 'fire house' with space to sit and enjoy the company of others, with the added bonus of lighting, wifi and music.
The rest of the garden is mostly laid to lawn with shrubs and planting as well as a mature woodland and a ha ha which drops down to the lake and undulates beyond. There is also a paved area overlooking the garden, with room for a table and chairs for the perfect al-fresco dining spot.
The grounds are secured by a state of the art camera system for added peace of mind. Beech House is on the market with Savills for £3,500,000.
