A privately situated modern country house with generous garden and land extending to just over five acres
This former period farmhouse has been transformed by the present owners into a modern family home of considerable character, providing versatile accommodation on a grand scale, within a particularly private rural setting.
The house combines the best of modern design and technology with traditional materials such as ground source heat pumps, grey water recycling system and log burners to form a distinctive property.
Extending to just over 4000 sq ft, this is a large but well-balanced and versatile property, having been designed around a growing family with regular guests and dependent relatives.
The accommodation centres around a large kitchen/ living room with vaulted ceiling and tiled floor benefiting from underfloor heating which continues throughout the property. This connects the original farmhouse with the former outbuildings which combine to form a series of flexible living spaces and two en suite bedrooms, all beautifully appointed and blessed by copious amounts of natural light. Above the dining room is a partially annexed guest bedroom with en suite shower room.
On the first floor of the extended former farmhouse there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including an impressive principal suite which spans the building and enjoys a triple aspect taking in the gardens and surrounding countryside.
The property includes a substantive stable block, currently configured as a gym, workshop and additional garaging alongside a downstairs WC, but designed with the dimensions and stable doors to serve as stabling. There is a large family play area or office to the first floor. The stable complex was originally planned by an architect as a three bedroomed self-contained annexe, then built as stables using the same footprint and layout. It was built to full domestic property building regulations (double glazing, floor, wall and ceiling insulation etc) and with doorways, windows and plumbing in the correct position for easy conversion back to the original annexe design, suited to multi-generational living, subject to the necessary planning permission.
Mature gardens envelope the property, to the south is a large graveled patio area with flagged centrepiece, topped by a pergola draped with wisteria creating a super al-fresco dining and entertaining area opening onto an expansive lawn, dotted with mature trees, which continues all the way around the house and buildings. In the north east corner is an inviting summerhouse and firepit, with a very productive kitchen garden adjacent, leading to a paddock of around four acres which contains a large wildlife/swimming pond at the far end, there is also an orchard. The whole area is surrounded by hedgerow and mature trees that give the extra element of privacy.
