Life on a grand scale
BUTCOMBE Court dates back to the 15th century, when a medieval house occupied the site now graced by this principally 18th-century building.
It is now divided into three dwellings and Butcombe Court itself is the principal wing, overlooking a formal garden bounded by a ha-ha.
The property has a well- documented history, with a connection with the 19th century banking family of Savery, and folklore has it that under the house is a secret tunnel linking the building to Regil Church.
The elegant exterior conceals stunning accommodation with sash windows, shutters, fireplaces, coved ceilings and panelling, which combines period elegance with contemporary needs.

With more than 5,000 sq ft of accommodation, the layout is ideal for a family, or for entertaining and it could quite feasibly adapt to dual occupation, as there are two staircases and a large utility room that could become a second kitchen.
The entrance is through a magnificent southwest-facing conservatory opening to a 36ft-long drawing room, panelled and with a high, decorated and coved ceiling, plus a fireplace with Delft tiles.
There is a second reception room plus a dining room, with space in the kitchen for more informal meals. Sliding doors from the kitchen open into the conservatory and elsewhere is a utility/boot room and a cloakroom.
The principal staircase rises from the drawing room and leads to four bedrooms and three bathrooms arranged on two floors. The secondary staircase from the dining room leads to two further bedrooms and a fourth bathroom. Under the house is an extensive cellar, ideal for storage and with a wine cellar beyond with Georgian brick wine bins.
South west facing, the garden is well stocked and overlooks farmland.
