The property

This spacious apartment forms part of Frogmore Hall which is believed to have been constructed in 1863 and comprised a 60 room mansion and adjoining stable block.

Beechwood is situated in the westerly wing of the house and benefits from its attractive period architecture and characteristics, including high ceilings, picture and dado rails, and large, sash windows with grid design, with the rooms enjoying views out over the surrounding landscape.

On entering the apartment, the bright and spacious reception hallway features steps up to an inner hall giving direct access into the kitchen/breakfast room. With ceramic-tiled flooring, the kitchen is fitted with modern wall and base level cabinets, topped with granite work surfaces and features a central island unit, which creates a divide to the dining area. The adjoining utility room has space for additional units and appliances. The drawing room has generous proportions and features a decorative fireplace and surround, triple aspect windows with French doors which open onto a paved private terrace.

There are two bedrooms, both with modern, en suite facilities and fitted wardrobe storage, and along with a cloakroom, complete the internal accommodation.
