Stunning former farmhouse with land on the outskirts of Monkton.
Newlands is a fine former farmhouse and steading offering truly adaptable accommodation which could be utilised for equestrian purposes if desired. The property has been well-maintained throughout and in its current configuration offers six bedrooms and no fewer than five reception rooms along with a stunning kitchen and pantry.
The home is constructed of red sandstone under a slate roof and along with outbuildings forms a U-shape with a central courtyard. It is approached by a long hedge-lined driveway and is surrounded by pretty gardens, numerous outbuildings and approximately 12 acres of land.
Internally the property has been refurbished in a traditional farmhouse style and is presented to an excellent standard with accommodation spread over two levels.
The ground floor begins with the main hallway where there is a staircase leading to the first floor. The living room, lounge and a splendid bathroom with freestanding bath are located off this hallway. Continuing straight ahead, an impressive recently refurbished kitchen with pantry is well appointed and benefits from a Rayburn range, separate hob and a number of wall and floor mounted storage options, and there is plenty of space for dining.
Off the rear hallway is an elegant sitting room with French doors out onto the garden and patio. Also in this part of the house are two bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The dining room was originally the byre, and as a result has some wonderful features including exposed sandstone walls and roof beams. The drawing room is located through a stone doorway off the dining room making this a fantastic space for entertaining. An oak staircase leads up to the family room which sits above the drawing room.
Upstairs there are four spacious bedrooms, two of which are en suite with the principal bedroom also benefiting from a dressing room.
Externally Newlands Farm is enclosed by a mature garden which is mainly laid to lawn and wraps around the front and side of the property. To the front the garden has been beautifully landscaped and has a desirable outdoor terrace with uninterrupted views.
Along with the numerous outbuildings on offer there is also a 12 acre field making this an excellent opportunity to convert and reinstate the current stables to make the property a fully operational equestrian facility.
