Property Description

This wonderful stone and cob farmhouse is approached down a long lane and culminated in a sweeping gravel drive leading to plenty of parking beside the house and then it continues around the side of the house to the shippon, garage, tractor shed/barn and paddocks.

The front door leads into a large beamed reception hall/morning room that really sets the tone for the rest of the house having wonderful plank flooring, stairs to the first floor, an impressive large stone inglenook fireplace sat on a raised hearth with adjacent bread oven and canopy. The arrangement of the receptions rooms does give flexibility as to what is used for what. Under the present arrangement one is used as a television room, having plank flooring and a feature stone fireplace with an inset multifuel stove sat upon a raised hearth, another as a sitting room/dining room with inglenook fireplace with bread oven and a log burner sat upon a raised hearth. This is a delightful double aspect room that has doors opening out into a covered loggia/BBQ area which offers ample space for a table and chairs for al fresco entertaining whilst enjoying an outlook across the gardens to the paddock and tree line beyond. The next reception room is currently used as a snug having a log burner in one corner. There is a downstairs shower room, stairs to the first floor and door into the utility/boot room leading off and, with the configuration of upstairs, this end of the house could be configured without too much trouble to have a separate annex (stp). Over recent times the double aspect kitchen, which has a door to the driveway, has been redesigned and now comprises an extensive range of units with quartz tops, island unit with breakfast bar, walk in pantry and an Aga with electric module, combined gives a great blend of both gas and electric with multiple ovens and rings.

The main staircase with its honey oak rail and spindles leads to an impressive galleried and vaulted landing off which runs the most amazing gently curved corridor, some 46’ in length, that has several windows overlooking the gardens to the paddocks, and links with the second set of stairs from the snug. All of the bedrooms are doubles with the main bedroom having a well appointed en suite shower room. Off the landing is a small inner hall that leads to bedrooms 5 & 6 and another bathroom and these rooms coupled with the afore mentioned rooms downstairs could create the annex. Finishing off the accommodation on the first floor is a generous sized family bathroom.

A car port and log store are found on the western side of the house.
The detached garage 29’ x 13’1 with power and light, is found adjacent to the boundary with one of the neighbouring barns. The drive continues pass the shippon 34’8 x 15’1 having power and light, up to the tractor shed/barn 41’3 x 16’8 with power and light and mezzanine floor. Attached to the tractor shed are a mower shed 10’ x 7’, store shed 12’ x 9’9 and a stable 11’ x 10’ with tack room. There is ample parking up here as well and a fine stone wall that sets it off beautifully with space for a field gate to be put if so required. The main access to the paddocks is found up here.

The formal garden that runs in front of the loggia/BBQ area and main reception rooms is laid to lawn gently sloping up to the post and rail fencing beside the largest paddock. On the north eastern side of the farmhouse enclosed by low hedging is a secret garden waiting to be created whilst beyond is a huge swathe of lawn that runs along the tree line boundary and would be a great location for a grass tennis court or in part further grazing as required.

There are three post and railed paddocks interlinking via field gates and grass tracks run beside to allow freedom of movement for both animals and vehicles. One of the paddocks hidden behind the first treeline has a hay store adjacent and beyond is a small area of light woodland.

The overall setting of this period farmhouse cannot be overestimated and it really is a home that just keeps on giving.
