About this property

TENURE: Freehold

Folly Farmhouse forms the heart of a working farm consisting of approximately 104 acres, with 90 acres currently being farmed. The property, constructed in the 1950s, offers excellent family accommodation arranged in the main over two floors with a further room on the second floor. The reception hall leads to the principal rooms including the generous drawing room with fireplace and double doors to the garden. The dining room also has doors to outside, a study, country-style kitchen with Aga and utility room to the rear. On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, plus a kitchen/sitting room with loft room above, offering versatility as to how the accommodation could be used.

Two substantial outbuildings offer further potential to develop, the first with planning permission to create a 3 bedroom apartment. The second outbuilding has planning permission to convert the office to a kitchen and to create a 2 bedroom flat above. In addition, there is a further 4 bay barn with machine store to the rear and a room over (which cannot be further developed).

The farmhouse and secondary buildings all enjoy wonderful views of the farm and countryside beyond.

Headley is a small village situated between Newbury and Basingstoke, thus offering excellent communication links to both towns and also to Reading. The M4 and M3 motorways are within easy reach. Headley has a Community Shop with

Post Office. Further comprehensive facilities can be found at Newbury including the Retail Park on the south side. The popular village of Kingsclere is approximately 3.5 miles away which offers comprehensive local amenities including

a leisure centre, gastro-pub, doctors, hairdressers and other local stores. Rail links are found at Newbury, Basingstoke or Thatcham, with Waterloo being only a 45-minute direct train

journey from Basingstoke. In terms of education Newbury enjoys an excellent reputation with a number of local schools being particularly highly regarded in addition to the extensive choice of private schools including Cheam, St. Gabriel’s, Horris Hill, Bradfield College, Downe House, Elstree and Brockhurst & Marlston. The area is particularly appealing for those requiring walking and riding facilities.

The farmhouse and outbuildings are idyllically situated amidst stunning countryside with rural views all around. A gravelled driveway to the front offers ample parking space, flanked by lawn which extends around to the sides and rear of the farmhouse, with wonderful far reaching views. An outdoor heated swimming pool provides the perfect retreat for entertaining and relaxation.

The farm extends in its entirety to approximately 104 acres, 90 of which are currently farmed, with a rotation of batwillow by a sizeable pond.
