Ref: EAXML10416_6870061
A delightful 4 bedroom detached period farmhouse Grade 2 listed and believed to date from 1600s and sympathetically extended over time with the potential to extend further (STPP) together with 2 acres of land. Separate agricultural barn with potential to apply for change of use/ create additional accommodation (STPP). 2 bay oak cart lodge garages with log store, gravel turning area for off road parking for approximately 8-10 cars together with long driveway with electric 5 bar gates. Outdoor heated swimming pool and hot tub with changing room attached to the main house. Superb period features, bespoke hand-built kitchen and excellent accommodation.

From the parking area there is direct access to the stable door into the garden room and, to the side, another door into the utility/boot room which is thought to have been the dairy originally. Entering the garden room there is attractive Karndean flooring, windows on both sides and currently with a woodburning stove. It is ideal for informal dining, relaxing and socialising given that it leads into the changing room with the swimming pool and hot tub beyond. The changing room also has Karndean flooring and attractive blue and white décor with a double shower and steam cubicle. There is a separate cloakroom with a white WC and wash hand basin with tiled splashback. From the changing room there is a stable door opening onto the paved area around the pool and hot tub together with established plants and shrubs.

To the left of the garden room is the absolutely delightful farmhouse kitchen which is thought to be the part of the house dating back to the 1600s and is L-shaped and has the utility/boot room alongside. There is a plethora of beams and a section of exposed stone making it characterful. It is fully fitted with bespoke, hand-built John Lewis of Hungerford units in cream with worktops comprising cream tiles and edged with wood. There is a 2-oven oil fired Aga ensuring the authenticity of this farmhouse kitchen. The windows overlook the patio/courtyard area outside and there is the potential to extend here (STPP). Adjacent to the kitchen there is a separate breakfast room/playroom/teenager’s snug as appropriate to individual requirements and continues the rural atmosphere with its quarry tiles. To the other side is the latch door into the utility/boot room with space and plumbing for a dishwasher, a washing machine, tumble drier and American style fridge/freezer. There is a butler sink, quarry tiled floor with a window to the side and an external door.

On the other side of the kitchen is a door opening a spacious reception room presently used as a snug/informal sitting room. Again, there are striking period features with half height wood panelling, an open fire- place currently with a wood burner together with full height Victorian style cupboards. This room leads to the spacious hall with the front door ahead with stained glass panels and an attractive curved staircase to the left with a large understairs cupboard providing useful storage. Beyond and to the left is the formal dining room and to the right the sitting room leading to the study beyond which is used as an office.

The sitting room has a large open fire, currently with a log basket, with a mahogany surround and a quarry tiled hearth. The room has a picture rail and is carpeted giving a sense of comfort. There is a superb bay with sash windows which is understood to be one of the features cited in the Grade 2 listing for this property. There is a deep window seat with storage beneath, fronted with wood panelling and with internal shutters to go across the window. Leading off the sitting room is the study/office which has a high ceiling and has similar styling to the formal sitting room. For those working from home it is ideal to use as an office whilst also enjoying the garden outside and wildlife to be seen.
