An outstanding country residence providing a home of exceptional style and taste set in about 14.5 acres incorporating excellent equestrian facilities, ancillary accommodation and manicured Italianate grounds in the sought after village of Long Melford. Westgate Park provides proof that classic and contemporary aesthetics can blend together seamlessly creating sophisticated living space encompassed within a practical and energy efficient home. The present owner of Westgate Park, a well regarded designer, had incredible vision in creating the property in 2006. His exacting standards have subsequently brought about a home of exceptional style and taste.
Automated gates open onto a gravelled drive that sweeps through Italianate grounds, themselves providing the perfect stage for an elegant Georgian design front facade. This striking first impression is continued even at night, thanks to an innovative lighting scheme. The impressive backdrop of post and rail paddocks has a symmetry that reflects the manicured grounds. With the formation of buildings radiating from a central avenue, the eye is naturally drawn to a striking Oak tree marking the distant rear boundary of the Estate.
The main reception hall, featuring elegant yet imposing Cornish granite columns, immediately expresses the splendour of the well balanced interior to come. A floating symmetrical winged staircase, sitting beneath an elegant four sided cupola, provides a focal point to the extensive sweep of accommodation. Solid Sienna marble floors, offset with finely detailed architraves, coving and deep skirting boards establish the underlying fine design and high quality finish of the interior. The formal East wing features the custom built library and drawing room together with a secondary kitchen perfect for entertaining. The West wing encompasses the principal dining room, sitting room, study and kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen suite includes a walk-in refrigerated cold room, scullery/pastry room and laundry together with an ancillary domestic office. Solid granite worktops are used throughout and the extensive kitchen range features a 4 oven gas fired Aga.
Upstairs, the property enjoys 2 important principal bedroom suites with vaulted coved raised ceilings; the ensuite bathrooms are similarly luxurious with contemporary fittings, marble and granite surfaces and flooring. Four further bedroom suites are accessed via the central East and West landings.
