The origins of Newbrough Farmhouse can be traced back to the 1600’s when it was built as a Coaching Inn before it became a farm house. There is evidence of the property’s historical past throughout, with a Grade II listed status reflecting this heritage.
A beautifully light reception hallway with French doors, glazed side panels and glazed atrium roof doubles as a perfect sun room. The oak floored hallway leads off to the sitting room at the front of the property. This is an impressive room with many traditional features including stripped timber farmhouse doors, glazed light panels, sash windows with original shutters and an imposing inglenook fireplace with stone surround and a multi fuel burning stove. A door opens onto the front of the property. The sitting room links to the beautiful dining kitchen with Karndean flooring, Welbeck tiles and exposed timber beam ceiling. There are a range of solid cabinets crafted by Robinson Gay from five different English woods set under wooden and granite worktops along with an oil fired aga set into a stone inglenook fireplace. Sash windows with seating and original shutters provide light from the front of the property with a further window to the side. To complement the range is a rare, large capacity black aga fridge/freezer set into an alcove. A cinema room and ground floor bedroom to the side of the property both have access out into the garden through double glazed French Doors and can be used flexibly as required. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a utility/cloakroom with WC, and a shower room with walk-in shower, WC, basin, heated towel radiator and fully tiled walls. The entire ground floor benefits from underfloor heating in addition to centrally heated radiators in some areas.
An elegant return staircase sweeps up to the first floor landing which has recessed shelving and a balustrade gallery overlooking the reception hallway. From here there is access to a single bedroom and three spacious double bedrooms, one of which has fitted wardrobe storage. The family bathroom is very well presented with large ceramic tiles to the floor and partly to the walls and has a free standing oval bath, large walk-in shower cubicle, WC, pedestal wash basin and chrome towel radiator. A continuation of the landing toward the rear of the property leads to a further two bedrooms with eaves storage and skylight Velux windows. These rooms benefit from a separate shower room adjacent.
There are raised planted borders to the front of the property and to the side is a private enclosed landscaped garden with grass lawn and a stepping stone path. Double timber gates give vehicular access to the block paved driveway from the main road and there is a further pedestrian gate giving access to the garden from the front of the property. There is a brick built storage/workshop outhouse in addition to a stone built coal and log store. An electric roller door reveals a single garage with electricity and water and there is additional parking space on the driveway.
