Mr Levy, West Sussex
In my experience, it is rare these days to have staff performing at the level that the team at Palmer Snell do.
The property is a Grade l Listed house of Hamstone construction with stone mullion windows. This historic property was originally the priest's house to St Margaret's Church; where today's winter drawing room can be found was the original hall and lodgings of the priests house and the first floor study the bed chamber. The house eventually became Crown Property belonging to Henry VIII who sold it to Sir William Petre. Later additions include the oriel which was added in around 1530 and is now a library and office with stairs giving access to the first floor study and principle bedroom suite. The house was taken over for the next 250 years by the Napper family in 1556 where further additions and alterations shaped the property as to what it is today. The Napper coat of arms can still be found over the front door.
The main access to the property is from St. Margaret's Road with electronic gates leading to a beautiful walled front garden with circular driveway leading to a large triple garage. There are landscaped gardens to the rear and side of the house and large sun terrace and hard tennis court. Separate electronic gated vehicular access to the rear leads to exterior utility area,a further triple garage suitable for stabling or outbuildings with power, water tank and drainage.
Standing immediately adjacent to St.Margaret's Church within the village of Tintinhull. The house is set behind a walled front garden with gated entrance. To the rear a Lime tree avenue separates approximately 18-20 acres of pasture. Tintinhull is approximately 4 miles from the town of Yeovil and has good road links with the A303 offering good access to London and the West Country. The M5 is approximately 20 miles distant at Junction 25 Taunton. Mainline railway stations are at Yeovil, Sherborne and Castle Cary. There are some excellent independent schools in the area, including Downside, Bruton, Leweston and Millfied.
