The property has 7 bedrooms although two are only ever in regular use and additional bedrooms used when they have visitors.  The Couple will be working with the existing Housekeeper to keep the property to a high standard.

The property is extensive and also has a swimming pool, tennis court and around 2 acres of formal garden mainly laid to lawn and additional parkland/woodland.

The client is looking for a couple who can be proactive, self manage and who can take control of running the house and grounds.

Duties will include:

  • Care of antiques and fine fabrics

  • Dog sitting when the clients are away 
  • Helping when they entertain, meeting and greeting guests, serving drinks, tidying up in the kitchen although this is fairly informal

  • General property maintenance both inside and out
  • Lawn mowing
  • Basic woodland work
  • Driving duties - occasional airport runs and evening driving locally
  • Care and maintenance of the household vehicles

The accommodation offered is best described as a 2 bed apartment within a separate building but adjacent to the main property - own separate entrance - Furnished or unfurnished - Bills covered buy the employer

Working hours will normally be Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm but with flexibility needed for occasional evening and weekend work (driving and when entertaining) when time can be taken off in lieu.
