  • Bedrooms: 3
The Westwood Estate was founded in the 12th century as an abbey of the Order of Fontevrault; it later became a Benedictine nunnery and, after the Dissolution, passed into the hands of The Pakington family.

Impressive stone steps rise to the magnificent pillared glazed entrance with triple arched openings leading through to the vestibule. Double heavy panelled front doors reflect the Elizabethan style and open into the 56' banqueting hall - an opulent room with oak panelling, intricate carvings and the magnificent plaster ceiling. Deep set stone mullioned lead lattice windows frame the glorious far reaching views.

The kitchen is fitted with bespoke cabinets, a Rangemaster cooker and a full range of appliances.

The drawing room has an elaborate carved oak fireplace and a large bay window. In the East Wing the master bedroom suite has lead lattice windows providing glorious views. There is an ornate plasterwork ceiling and an en suite bathroom with separate shower. On the lower ground floor, there is another bedroom suite.

The property is initially approached over a communal drive and then a private drive flanked by lawns. A dwarf box hedge marks a turning circle with parking. In addition a separate secret garden, the original arboretum to the main house, is accessed by a pretty pedestrian gate on the east side of the building. There is also private garaging at the rear of the house.
