An outstanding and spacious period farmhouse with open farmland views, combining character with contemporary living.
Entering through the attractive porch with lattice screening, an oak panelled door provides access to an impressive reception hall with slate flooring and underfloor heating that extends throughout the ground floor, with the exception of the study.
The bright and spacious sitting room has a dual aspect with views over the front and side gardens and a limestone fireplace. The study also enjoys pleasant views over the front and easterly views over the side garden. The room benefits from bespoke oak furniture providing glazed display units and storage. The dining room, forming part of the original building, has a Georgian window affording easterly views over the side gardens. There are exposed oak ceiling beams and a mellow red brick fireplace with oak bressumer and cast iron stove. The adjacent family room again benefits from exposed ceiling beams and an inglenook style red brick fireplace with a more substantial bressumer and wood burning stove. A broad arch from the hall leads to the well located kitchen. The bespoke Mark Wilkinson custom fitted cabinets offer copious amounts of storage with built-in appliances and extensive granite work surfaces. A substantial island unit contains a white porcelain sink and extends to provide a breakfast bar. The focal point of the kitchen is a four door oil fired Aga with an electric ceramic hob. A full height unit houses a larder fridge, microwave and Miele espresso coffee machine. The pamment terracotta floor extends through to an invaluable utility/laundry room which has a walk-in larder and sash windows overlooking the side gardens. Matching oak cabinets with solid worktops have an inset butler sink and there is space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and free standing fridge freezer. From the laundry there is access to a spacious boot room with useful shower and doors to cloakroom and deep coats cupboard.
The stunning conservatory links the kitchen to the family room and creates a superb entertaining space, with a beautiful southerly aspect across the courtyard garden. There is plenty of space for informal seating and stylish dining. The side hall, which provides direct access to the gardens, leads through to the wing. This includes two highly flexible rooms currently laid out as a studio room with full height glazed window making it both bright and airy and a cinema room with built-in flat screen television.
From the front hallway, an attractive open staircase leads up to the first floor accommodation. The first floor landing is extensive, linking the three distinct sections of the house. There is a pretty Georgian window framing views over the front garden.
All the bedrooms are extremely well proportioned. Bedrooms two and three are located to the front and have views over the rear garden and farmland beyond. Bedroom two enjoys a Victorian style fireplace and a walk-in dressing room which in turn leads to a ‘Jack and Jill’ bathroom. Additionally, the third bedroom also has a cast iron fireplace. In the older section of the property, bedroom four has a slightly lower ceiling with exposed beams, and again has extensive views. There is the benefit of an additional WC adjacent to bedroom 4. The Master Suite is a most appealing part of the house. Initially there is a lobby giving access to his and hers walk-in wardrobes. The south facing master bedroom has a dual aspect with attractive views. The vast ensuite bathroom is highly specified. There are twin pedestal sinks, a free standing roll top bath located beneath the sash window and a luxurious shower enclosure with curved glass surround and wall mounted body jets.Hall
