Charming farmhouse set in 3 acres
Quaker Farm is a wonderfully positioned farmhouse, enjoying a peaceful and elevated setting looking out over undulating farmland. Grade II listed with lovely character, the property
includes outbuildings, mature gardens, woodland and a delightful meadow, and is complete with a cold war bunker which makes for a unique feature that could be utilised in many ways.
Dating back to the 17th century, with later additions,
including converting and linking former outbuildings, which has created fantastic open plan living to add to the more conventional layout of the main house. The entrance to the house is immediately welcoming, with views straight through to the gardens, pond, meadow and valley beyond. The principal rooms on the ground floor include a large sitting room, with vaulted ceiling, wood burner and door out to the gardens; this leads through to an equally spacious family room, with direct
garden access. A central farmhouse kitchen, complete with Rayburn and pantry, provides the ideal focal point for the house, leading through to the double aspect drawing room with woodburner and dining room with open fireplace. Further rooms include a useful utility, cloakroom with shower and a
triple aspect study with French doors to the gardens.
Two staircases lead to the first floor, with a principal bedroom
with En suite bathroom and a further two double bedrooms
and family bathroom. There are a further two bedrooms on
the second floor together with a bathroom. The house enjoys plenty of natural light throughout.
Quaker Farm is approached via a gravelled in and out drive to the north of the house, with parking for many cars. A second driveway provides access to the outbuildings and further parking.
The gardens and grounds compliment the house with
plenty of points of interest and are well maintained. The formal garden is immediately to the south of the house, with a delightful terraced area ideal for outside dining and with fine views over the pond and meadow beyond. This enclosed area is laid to lawn, with well stocked herbaceous borders, shrubs and lavender bed, with a Wendy House at one end. To the east is an area of woodland, within which is the cold war bunker, installed in the late 1960's, and which is
essentially a grass mound with a door, into a room of approx.
30 x 7'5.
To the south of the main lawn is a wildlife pond, beyond which is a substantial meadow opening out to farmland beyond. The
meadow provides a hay crop each year, with pathways mown
to access the boundary providing a lovely walk and view
back to the house.
To the east of the house are the
outbuildings. There is a traditionally built woodstore and storage area which is adjoined to the house and could be utilised in many different ways such as home office or
further accommodation to the house, subject to the necessary
planning consents. A general purpose agricultural barn 52 x
32 provides excellent storage space, garaging or could be converted to stabling or a livestock barn.
