About this property

An exceptionally well-appointed, handsome and substantial period farmhouse set in landscaped gardens and grounds of about 2.8 acres. The Farmhouse has been carefully improved and extended by the present owners to complement the original period style whilst still incorporating the original features of the house with a wealth of exposed beams, oak doors and flooring. The extensive living accommodation includes a stunning drawing room and sitting room both with beautiful fireplaces and wood burning stoves. There is also an exceptional oak-framed garden room with under flooring heating and 180 degree views over the formal gardens. The original well room has been carefully enhanced and incorporates the Listed donkey wheel and well which together with slate flooring and floor to ceiling windows provides a very interesting reception space. The creation of the games room and gym provide additional flexibility with multiple sets of doors to the garden and a useful ground floor shower room. Of note, there is also a fitted study, ideal as a home office. The living accommodation is beautifully complemented by a ‘Regency’ style quad aspect kitchen/dining/family room with under floor heating and arched windows. This is a magnificent room extending to 30’1 / 9.18m with a bespoke range of cabinets, granite work surfaces and an Aga together with multiple doors and views out to the garden and terraces. The ground floor accommodation is completed with a range of useful separate auxiliary rooms including utility, boot and laundry rooms and a cellar. The first floor accommodation is very flexible and includes a twin aspect master bedroom suite with a stylish bath and shower room as well as two further bedrooms, both with en suite bath/shower rooms. The second floor accommodation is set off a spacious landing and includes two further bedrooms and a shower room. The house is complemented by well-tended landscaped grounds together with paddocks beyond the rear garden. This is a very comfortable and appealing family home of great character and style.
