An impressive, detached family home in the centre of Dodleston.
Designed by renowned local architect, John Douglas, for Grosvenor Estates and built-in 1896, The Farmhouse forms part of a traditional former working farm and has been beautifully renovated and extended in recent years. The result is a fantastic family home with high quality fittings and spacious accommodation, which still retains much of the original character.
The property is approached along a shared driveway to the side of the house and subsequently through a rear vehicular access gate. There is a wooden pedestrian gate to the front allowing access from the pavement.
The accommodation opens in to a welcoming entrance hall with original Minton tiled floor and a staircase to the first floor. To the left of the hall is a well-proportioned reception room, suitable for a variety of uses such as a dining room, second sitting room or playroom. The room features a sandstone fireplace with a living flame gas fire.
A door leads to an inner hallway, off which the remaining downstairs rooms can be accessed. The kitchen is beautifully fitted with a range of base and wall units and central island, and there are several integrated appliances. There is plenty of space for a dining table, and the vaulted ceiling with Velux windows allow plenty of natural light. There is a door to the well-equipped utility room and an external door from the kitchen area.
The large sitting room is impressive and has windows to the front and side. There is another sandstone fireplace with a living flame gas fire and a door providing access to the study (which could also be used as a snug). A cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor there are four generously sized bedrooms. The principal bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. Bedroom two also has an en suite shower room, and the remaining two bedrooms are served by a large family bathroom.
Outside there is a detached garage (with electric door) and an adjoining storage area with separate door access.
The garden at The Farmhouse is lovely. Positioned mainly to the side and front of the house, it is lawned with a decked seating area to the corner of the plot.

I love the position of The Farmhouse. The village has such a lovely feel about it, and the property itself has been beautifully renovated - natural light pours in through the many windows and the quality of the fittings throughout is clear to see.Charlie KannreutherProperty agent
