We love the atmosphere of this beautiful home as well as all of the tastefully decorated rooms. There’s a quiet elegance to the interior which fits perfectly with its architectural style and internal inspection certainly won’t disappoint. Brief highlights include an entrance hallway, sitting room, study, a fabulous lounge with a stone fireplace and open fire. There is also a practical utility room, and a handy downstairs cloakroom room. The farmhouse breakfast kitchen is the real heart of the home with its bespoke hand-crafted units, large centre island, granite tops, range oven, integrated appliances and French doors out onto the patio. On the first floor there are three fabulous bedrooms, and a lavish five-piece family bathroom with feature stand-alone bath. The second floor provides two further bedrooms and a quality three-piece shower room.
The newly converted barn, completed by the current owners to a very high standard has been created with care and attention to detail to provide magnificent ancillary space. The beautiful entrance with its high vaulted ceiling and huge wall of glass is open to the kitchen and a lounge combining to create outstanding living space that takes full advantage of the amazing views over the surrounding farmland. There is also a handy shower room on the ground floor whilst to first floor there are three excellent bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom is simply breath taking with bi folding doors that open out on to a first-floor balcony.
The property is approached via a quiet country lane that leads to a gated plot with a cobbled courtyard and extensive parking. The formal gardens extend to around a quarter of an acre in total and surround the house to include York stone patio areas that are just perfect for entertaining. The largest outbuilding is an open plan barn which has been separated into ten stables, with an additional storage area. This barn has a water supply with automatic water troughs, rubber matting and houses an equine solarium. The additional outbuildings provide a separate feed room, tack room, workshop, and Dutch barn (with WC and wash hand basin). The equestrian facilities continue with ten acres of land to include three post and rail paddocks, an external walking track, jump paddock and a separate menage which measures 42m x 22m and comprises of rubber and sand.
