About this property

  • School Farm, a much loved family home for over 30 years, is a most wonderful and attractively designed house, set in over seven acres, with beautiful gardens, paddocks, outbuildings and equestrian facilities.

    The principal building, which is believed to date to the late 19th century, is a handsome red-brick house under a pantile roof. It has been expertly improved and modernised by our clients into an exquisitely designed family home.

    Internally, the accommodation is light and bright and perfectly combines period charm and modern aesthetics and practicality.

    The stunning, triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room has hand built wooden cupboards, wooden surfaces, an AGA and integrated oven and hob. A door leads through to a dining room with a wood-burning stove. A partially glazed door leads out to the gardens.

    An attractive passageway leads to an excellent sitting room with an original brick floor, windows to the south, east and west elevations, a door leading outside, and a wood burning stove. A mezzanine provides additional space for relaxing and leads through to a useful double aspect study.

    Completing the ground floor are a superb utility, shower room and a fantastic pantry and store, built in the original dairy.

    The first floor accommodation comprises four bedrooms. The principal bedroom is especially smart and benefits from an adjoining bathroom.

    School Farm is set within over seven acres of wonderful grounds with brilliant equestrian facilities including a stable block, barn and workshop. There is 40' x 20' manège and the post and railed paddocks each have their own water supply.

    Within the grounds are a marvellous array of fruit trees including various species of apple, pears and quince trees. The gardens consist of a parterre courtyard, areas of lawn and a vegetable garden. There is ample parking and a double garage.
