More Details


The substantial, stone-built, period farmhouse comprises some 3800 sq ft of versatile living accommodation arranged over two floors. It has been beautifully renovated under the guidance of an architect whose brief was to emphasise flowing living space and natural light. There are fireplaces, engineered oak floors, fitted cabinetry, wooden louvre shutters, and high spec fixtures and fittings in all of the bathrooms. The modern kitchen has recessed lighting, fitted units with timber and granite worktops, a Range cooker and a double Butler sink. An underfloor heating system has been fitted in the kitchen/dining/family room and in all of the en suite bathrooms. Incorporated within the farmhouse and concealed behind partition walls is a two-storey annexe with a separate entrance. This annexe could easily be re-integrated into the original building.

At the rear, the farmhouse enjoys views over its own landscaped gardens which are enclosed, extend to about an acre and have a fine outlook across open countryside. A raised York stone terrace connects the main reception rooms to this lovely garden with a flight of stone steps descending to a sweeping lawn and summer house. Beyond lies a pond spanned by a timber bridge and many specimen trees and colourful shrubs through which pathways meander, continuing to an arc of natural woodland at the far boundary. Throughout are established areas for sitting out and enjoying views across the garden and beyond. In addition, there are four sheds and a nursery garden with raised beds and two poly tunnels.


The detached barn lies opposite the house and has a courtyard garden along with an allocated parking area. Designed with the help of architects its impressive interiors are light and airy with double-height ceilings, floor-to-ceiling barn windows, vaulted ceilings with oak trusses and generous living spaces connected by internal glazed double doors. The finish is high spec and energy efficient with underfloor heating in the en suite bedrooms, and the accommodation includes a mezzanine style sitting room at first floor level, a professional commercial kitchen and a dining area with French doors opening onto the courtyard garden. There are two bedroom suites on the ground floor and a large bedroom/living room suite on the first floor with a magnificent vaulted ceiling and bathroom equipped with both a bath and shower. Each suite has an independent entrance, although the building has been designed so that all three can easily be integrated into the main barn.


The single-storey cottage is detached and has been converted with a new roof, full insulation and double glazing. The self-contained suites each have their own entrance, double bedroom, sitting room, shower room, private garden and parking space. A shared laundry/utility room comes with separate access. The whole could easily be returned to a single dwelling.


The private drive, which is some 200 metres in length and flanked by fenced hedgerows, passes through two gate posts and a cattle grid. The drive then continues past the three dwellings – cottage, house and barn - culminating in a car park laid with gravel. Here also is the dog run and timber stable block alongside a five-bar gate giving access to nearly two acres of paddock land with a copse at the far boundary. The gardens and grounds are enclosed and predominantly lie to the north, east and west of the farmhouse.
