About this property

  • The Property
    Holly Farmhouse is a delightful family home, with a pleasing blend of architectural styles and ages, with an original thatched 18th century cottage that has been extended in both the Victorian era and more latterly and extensively in 2013 by the current owners.

    The house now presents an impressive and spacious home with plenty of character, functional space and style. The most recent addition created a substantial living/ music room, with wood burner, triple aspect and direct access to the south to south west facing patio via French doors. Above this is the exceptional master bedroom enjoying plenty of natural light with vaulted ceiling and en suite shower room. In the original part of the house the kitchen has recently been transformed with a bespoke shaker style kitchen with great attention to detail and thoughtful layout, complete with new Aga eR7 and central island. This leads through to a comfortable dining room, with further cabinetry and wine cooler. At the heart of the house is a spacious sitting room with fireplace, a bespoke fitted study, the essential utility room and shower room. A further four bedrooms are on the first floor with family bathroom and WC, with most rooms including bespoke cabinetry providing plenty of storage throughout.

    The house is in excellent order throughout, and all rooms enjoy views out over the gardens.

    Garden and Grounds
    Holly Farm House enjoys a peaceful and private setting on the edge of the hamlet, approached through a pair of wooden five bar gates on brick pillars. A gravelled driveway sweeps round to an area of parking for many cars, with the drive looping back to the gates.

    The wonderful grounds compliment the house perfectly. To the south is a landscaped area of well stocked herbaceous borders, framed by brick pathways and low brick walls, with seating areas and wisteria clad façade. The majority of the garden is mainly laid to a large expanse of lawn that sweeps from south to west, interspersed with shrubberies and leading to a wooded area with mown paths meandering through.

    Within the gardens are a hard tennis court, sheltered via established hedged boundaries. Immediately adjoining the house is a south west facing patio, ideal for outside dining, with a further patio behind the house again used for outside dining overlooking the koi pond and water feature and with direct access from the house.

    The substantial outbuilding has been utilised by all the family at various points, and is currently configured as a gym, party room and storage, but could clearly be adapted in many different ways.

I think this house is such a brilliant example of what an edge of village house should be, nice and private, quiet, land to protect you yet not too much, and a really comfortable and welcoming house at the heart of it all.
