An individual character house of 4500 ft.² built in 2002 with great views over its 9 acres of grounds in a wonderful rural setting with several outbuildings and equestrian facilities and livery yard. ** 5% stamp duty might apply (see note).
The present owner is an award-winning Chartered Builder and Mansell McTaggart have sold several of his high-quality homes over the years. It is quite evident that he never held back on quality and detail of the fittings in Orchard Farm, which has been his home. Features include: quality tiled flooring and Limestone flags to the ground floor, wide solid oak floorboards in most rooms, a centralised vacuum system, an ornate staircase, kitchen fittings and a wealth of structural oak beams throughout.
The current house stands on the site of the old Orchard farm which was destroyed by fire and has been replaced and designed to create the perfect country home with large spacious rooms, plenty of bathrooms, a large recreation room in the basement and there is still potential to create two further bedrooms or a separate au pair’s flat/annexe on the top floor. Likewise, the garage building offers scope for enlargement/conversion on three boundaries.
The property is accessed from the lane over a wide driveway/parking area which leads up to the garage building and large storeroom over. The garden adjoins the house on three sides with woodland on the south east boundary enclosed from the Paddocks by post and rail fencing. There are several fenced Paddocks and the majority of land slopes away and leads down to a small pond providing well drained grazing land adjoining countryside on three boundaries.
* The Barns, stables and sand school can be accessed via a secure secondary access for which it has a full unrestricted agricultural/equestrian use or from the remaining part of the land and offer great potential for conversion into separate dwellings STPP. This complex is run as a business; Orchard Farm Livery – and produces an income.
**The owners’ accountant informs us that the mixture of domestic and commercial use ensures that stamp duty on the conveyance is limited to 5%.
