Spinnakers is a delightful family house set in its own grounds, designed in 1922 by a contemporary of Lutyens
Internally, oak timbers and beams are reputed to be from the Temeraire warship made famous in Turner’s painting, and broken up at Chatham in the early years of the 20th Century. A magnificent Tudor fireplace sits in the drawing room with stone surround and oak bressumer beam and the principal internal doors are oak panelled with sliding wrought iron latches.
The reception rooms are well-appointed and on the first floor is the double-aspect master bedroom, with a further three large double bedrooms. The family bathroom features an original cast iron bath.
