Once a single dwelling, now sub-divided and offering the larger section of this truly unique semi-detached home set within the grounds of an iconic National Trust site. Offering splendid views over the valley, surrounding countryside and backing onto National trust woodland, this family home offers spacious and practical accommodation with an enviable and secluded spot. The property is believed to date back 200 years when it was historically two cottages. In recent times, the property has been one single dwelling and in 2020 was split back into two dwellings with now the opportunity to buy the East and Central part of Buzzard House. With period features including exposed beams, flagstone floors, fireplaces, window shutters and a stunning solid oak galleried landing area, but also benefitting from modern conveniences such as a zoned central heating system plus 1.8kw PV solar panels and solar thermal tubes providing green energy for hot water and electricity. The accommodation comprises two large reception rooms, the drawing room enjoying the vaulted ceiling and oak gallery, dining room, large farmhouse style kitchen with bespoke, hand-made units, large utility/boot room, walk-in pantry, store and cloak room to the ground floor. The first floor comprises five double bedrooms, one which is currently used as a home office, a fully-tiled wet room, and further family bathroom.
The property is approached via a stunning tree lined driveway (c1.6km in length) via the main Tyntesfield entrance and sits in private grounds approaching 1.5 acres which include a rear walled garden, orchard, herb garden and detached stone barn in addition to other outbuildings. The property is entered via a five bar gate with gravel driveway providing private parking for several vehicles. A further five-bar gate gives access to the front of the property with level lawn and patio area to enjoy the superb views from. Steps here lead down to the orchard containing a variety of fruit trees. A stone-arched doorway lead to a side courtyard and covered porchway with side access into the kitchen and from here steps lead up to a raised and sheltered herb garden and patio area. From here further steps lead up to a walled garden laid to lawn with crab apple hedging and rear gate straight into National Trust land.
The largest of the outbuildings is a detached stone barn. Split into three, the largest part currently used as a garage with adjacent stable block and hay loft over and then further tool shed with mezzanine storage level above. There is also a further shed accessed via the side. The side courtyard you will find a stone building housing the oil tank and further workshop

National Trust Site; Tyntesfield
Set within the stunning grounds of Tyntesfield estate is a Victorian Gothic Revival house which is a Grade I listed building named after the Tynte baronets, who had owned estates in the area since about 1500. The location was formerly that of a 16th-century hunting lodge, which was used as a farmhouse until the early 19th century. In the 1830s a Georgian mansion was built on the site, which was bought by English businessman William Gibbs, whose huge fortune came from guano used as fertilizer. In the 1860s Gibbs had the house significantly expanded and remodelled; a chapel was added in the 1870s. The Gibbs family owned the house until the death of Richard Gibbs in 2001.
