EQUESTRIAN - Sitting ring fenced by its land of 56 acres, providing perfect privacy, the house sits within traditional landscaped gardens with the house at its centre. The Farm has been lovingly transformed by the current owners and is presented to the market for the first time in over 50 years. The house is constructed of brick under a tiled roof, with the rear sections having brick with timber. As part of the remodelling they wanted to offer a new large frontice piece which has been sympathetically linked to 17C farmhouse at the rear, with the use of re-claimed materials and handmade bricks it’s hard to tell what is new and what is old. The house as it stands offers over 6,500 sq ft of accommodation with scope to convert the beautiful workshop barn to add further accommodation and build a leisure wing, subject to planning.
Traditional heavy Oak boarded door opens into the porch, from which you step into the magnificent reception hall, with a full height ceiling and a carved wood staircase rising up to the galleried landing, an abundance of exposed beams in the ceiling and walls sets the tone for the house. The carved stone chimney piece houses an open fire and the oak floorboards complete the setting. Off the hall is an equally impressive drawing room, with windows on three sides providing views over the gardens, a striking inglenook fireplace sits centred on the far wall, a perfect open fire setting. On the opposing side of the hall is a traditional dining room, again with a window to the front aspect and open fire. Linking the front part of the house through to the original farmhouse is a long kitchen breakfast room, converted from an original barn, it now stands with its exposed ceiling truss framing this excellent room. A well fitted kitchen with a comprehensive range of cupboards is finished with a granite worksurface and centred on the four oven Aga. From the breakfast area French windows open into the garden and a further door leads through to a Laundry room and pantry. The rear section of the house is the original farmhouse with a central dining room with snug and sitting room to either side. Off the front reception hall is a useful boot room with a rear door and central heating boiler, beyond this room is a large office, from which is an internal door to access the garage. Sitting on the first floor above this wing is the games room, large enough to afford a full size snooker table and space for gym equipment. Linked to the main house is a traditional barn, this is currently used as a workshop and storage but would be ideal to convert into accommodation.
First Floor:- The carved Oak staircase leads up to the galleried landing from which is located the Master bedroom suite with feature window to the front looking over the formal gardens and pond. A range of fitted cupboards and further dressing room, with his and hers full en-suites one with a shower suite and the other with a bathroom suite. Two further bedrooms sit within the front wing of the house with a jack and jill bathroom, another two bedrooms both with en-suites are situated in the oldest part of the house with charming exposed beams., the guest suite is particularly generous. (two of these bedrooms are serviced by a separate staircase from the rear section of the original farmhouse).

The residence turn right through automated gates onto a gravel sweep around a central island, with a rockery waterfall into the large pond sitting in front of the house. The formal lawns wrap around the house on three wides with paved terraces providing seating areas. To the rear of the house is a traditional walled garden, formally laid out with rose arches and paths accessing the raised planters, a very tranquil spot. To the rear of the house is a modern barn divided into 12 stables, tack room and feed room, a separate open fronted hay barn and large implement store are all formed in the yard at the rear.
