About the Property7 Bedroom(s)
Escape to the country! Houses this beautiful, with such history, land and period features are such a rare find. This Grade II character home is set on about 5 acres of grounds, with several buildings totalling about 8479 sq ft, including the main home which extends to 5353 sq ft.
In addition to the Main House, there is a detached 4-bedroom Garden House which features 2 reception rooms and a garage. This is perfect for long term guests or older parents.
The large detached double garage features a Studio flat over with kitchen and bathroom, together with a workshop. This additional accommodation would work well for a housekeeper
anny or gardener.
There are numerous other outbuildings within this delightful property, together with a secluded swimming pool and well-kept tennis court.
Period features are in abundance here, and Bakersgate is believed to date back to the early 1400s, making it one of the oldest buildings in Pirbright village. Since the largest extension was undertaken in the 17th Century, there have been numerous additions in the 20th Century. This interesting and fine property has been home to many well-established families in its history, including the Slaughter family in the mid-1800s and the Lyle family more recently.
Quite often homes dating back to this period can be dark, with restricted head-height, whereas Bakersgate features an extraordinary number of windows allowing light to flood the rooms and creating an attractive outlook over the beautifully manicured gardens.
Accommodation is fantastic, the reception rooms are well proportioned and work equally well for grand entertaining as for family living. The drawing room, sitting room and kitchen all have access out onto the gardens. The farmhouse style kitchen is connected to the larder and utility room and has a built-in gas fired AGA.
