Beautifully presented Georgian farmhouse set in about 26 acres, surrounded by beautiful countryside designated an area of outstanding natural beauty
Lanes Foot Farm is a substantial Georgian farmhouse providing well proportioned and flexible accommodation over two floors, which retain a wealth of original features and character but with a modern twist. The property has been sympathetically and extensively restored and refurbished during the current vendors ownership, creating a wonderful modern family home which takes full advantage of the stunning setting.
Part of the renovation and refurbishment works include a new addition which has created a useful boot room style entrance, utility room and study. The remaining ground floor rooms are all generously proportioned, including a family room, large sitting room with feature fireplace housing a cast iron stove, inviting dining room and the kitchen which has been opened up to incorporate a breakfast area and is finished in quality bespoke shaker style units, and a refurbished oil fired Aga and separate electric Aga. At the far end of the ground floor is the media/TV room with the second staircase leading up to a large en suite bedroom, perfect for guests - the whole area could be self contained if desired.
The generous proportions and tasteful decoration continue across the first floor, each of the six bedrooms being doubles, two being served by recently updated bathrooms, the other four having access to opposing contemporary shower and bathrooms.
The property is approached via a meandering drive leading to the impressive timber garage block to one side of Lanes Foot Farm. The house is set in formal, well stocked gardens, a lawn extending to the north and east and more formal area to the south providing an ideal sitting out area. The land is predominantly planted to coniferous woodland, part of which has been recently cleared and replanted with a mix of trees. In addition to the woodland there are two paddocks to the north providing scope for livestock or horses.
In addition to the house there is an impressive timber clad garage and workshop across the wide gravelled parking area, with power, water and light, providing ample space for gardening equipment, bikes and several cars.
