This stunning farmhouse has been beautifully maintained by the current owners over the last twenty years whilst the two storey extension added in 2005 has created the space and flexibility for modern day family living. The approach to the property is quite charming; a private road surrounded by fields leading to the long shingle driveway. The tree lined drive is picturesque and perfect for such a distinguished home.
The kitchen/ breakfast room is quite stunning with exposed timbers and a vaulted ceiling offering a great place to entertain family and friends. The current owners replaced the kitchen approx four years ago with a hand crafted Nicholas James kitchen. The attractive bay window is ideal to sit with a cup of tea and gaze into the attractive garden. The formal sitting room has a lovely cosy feel with the feature fireplace and log burning stove offering the perfect place to sit on those cold winter evenings. The extensive garden room is part of the additions in 2005 and measures over ten meters long. This vast room has French doors leading out to the garden and numerous windows taking in the delightful vista. There are two further reception rooms, namely the family room and a study. Off the kitchen there is a sizeable utility room with excellent storage, ideal for wellies and wet dogs. Steps from the utility room lead up to a space above currently used as a 'den'. Beyond the utility is a room which has been converted from the previous garage to create a changing room for the pool/ gym, complete with a shower room. This fantastic space lends itself for an easy conversion (STP) into ancillary accommodation should one require additional living space for an elderly parent or nanny.
On the first floor are five bedrooms, one of which is accessed via a separate staircase from the kitchen. The four principal bedrooms are all accessed off the main landing. The master bedroom suite is wonderfully light and spacious whilst being dual aspect enjoys views of the garden and countryside beyond. There is also an en-suite shower room and separate dressing room. There are three further double bedrooms in this part of the house and a family bathroom.
With the overall plot extending to approx 4 acres in total, the beautiful mature gardens wrap around the rear and side of the house where all day sunshine can be enjoyed throughout the year. There is a large expanse of lawn with an array of mature trees, herbaceous borders and flower beds and a well organised vegetable garden ideal for someone wanting to grow produce from home. The heated swimming pool has enjoyed plenty of use by the owners, has been well maintained and is heated via an air source heat pump ensuring running costs are kept to a minimum.
As well as having your own naturally spring fed pond which attracts an abundance of wildlife, is bordered by stunning willow trees and an iron fence for safety, there are also two paddocks currently home to the family alpacas.
There is parking for numerous vehicles on the driveway and also a detached double garage. EPC rating: E
