Dating back to 1928, Axholme was commissioned by and built for the Holt family, who founded the John Holt shipping company. Beautifully refurbished throughout by the current owners, Axholme benefits from a state-of-the-art leisure complex and a 2 double bedroomed self-contained annexe. This immaculately and stunning family home offers the perfect blend between historical features and contemporary living. The spacious entrance hallway has sweeping stairs to the first floor, and access to the light-filled bay fronted drawing room, study, dining room, loggia, and downstairs cloakroom. A corridor leads to the snug and butler's pantry, a second staircase to the upper floors, and on into the immense and impressive kitchen, family area and conservatory breakfast room with state-of-the-art temperature-controlled windows. Above the kitchen is a well-equipped gym which overlooks the pool complex, featuring pool, steam room, sauna, plant room, jacuzzi and changing room.
