Weir House, set in its own pretty garden, is the biggest and most beautiful of all our cottages.
There is a flagged entrance hall with stairs leading up to a galleried landing lit by a round window. Under the stairs, the children’s den, with dressing-up clothes and a puppet theatre. Windows look out onto the croquet lawn, and opens into the dining room, which has a ten-foot antique pine-topped table.
Through the arch on the left is the kitchen, with Shaker units; a big island unit; a vast American-style side-by-side fridge-freezer with icemaker; a range cooker and two dishwashers. Doors lead out onto the terrace. Both rooms have underfloor heating.
To the left of the kitchen is the utility room and downstairs cloakroom, with space for muddy boots and wet macs by the back door.
At the far end of the dining room there’s an arch to the oak-floored games room. Opposite the television in the games room is a seating area, with down-cushioned seating units in rosy-red chenille grouped around a large, low, leather-topped table. A French door to the right of the TV gives access to the North Terrace.
Big double doors lead down into the large drawing room; it has a Gothic arched fireplace in stone. It occupies the width of the house: the two windows on the left look out onto the North terrace, lawn and flower beds, and the window and French doors on the right have a view over the South terrace, a deep woodland border and trees.
The drawing room is altogether softer, gentler and more elegant than the games room; it has a large Savonnerie style rug, and is decorated in rosy-red, ochre and off white. A huge ottoman sits between the fire and a long three seater sofa; on each side of the fireplace are two small antique buttoned French chairs, and in addition, large comfortable armchairs.
There are three downstairs bedrooms, all have en-suite bathrooms or shower rooms. The king-size four-poster, faces the South terrace. The en-suite shower, tiled in buff marble has a shower big enough for two. Next door is a twin room: the two nineteenth century French beds and the Louis xvi chair. Its en-suite shower room is tiled in grey and white Carrara marble. The third has twin mahogany four-posters dressed in a Colefax and Fowler print of yellow roses on beige and off-white striped background and a beautiful nineteenth century secretaire. The ensuite bathroom is tiled in beige marble: the bath has a Niagara tap and an overhead shower.
The other two bedrooms are on the first floor, up the stairs from the hall. The twin room is wallpapered in a deep green stripe offset by white bed hangings. It has an en-suite bathroom, tiled in Carrara marble to match the top of a twin basined antique French pitch-pine vanity unit. (It’s a very rare piece and was a nightmare to plumb in). There’s a Carrara marble surround and splash-back round the bath, and a separate tiled shower enclosure.
The fifth bedroom is large and magnificent, with a high pitched ceiling and an impressive six foot wide half tester bed. The large en-suite bath and shower room, with a teak-topped vanity unit and bath surround.
Children will love the swing and seesaw; grown-ups will enjoy croquet, reading in the hammock, a quiet tête à tête in the Italian garden, or a boisterous barbecue on the terrace off the kitchen.
