About this property

  • Warren Lane House is an attractive stone built period farmhouse, sympathetically extended around 30 years ago, providing well proportioned and flexible accommodation over two floors, which retain a wealth of original features and character but with a modern twist. In addition to the significant extension, the property has been sympathetically and extensively restored and refurbished, creating a wonderful modern family home which takes full advantage of the stunning setting.

    The ground floor rooms are perfect for growing families and entertaining, some cosy and others generously proportioned, including a family room, large sitting room with feature fireplace, inviting snug room also with an open fire and some eye catching wood paneling, and the family kitchen which has space for a large table and an oil fired Aga. The newer part of the house is linked by a striking galleried reception hall with feature fireplace and stone flagged floor providing a wonderful venue to welcome guests and easy access to the front patio garden.

    The generous proportions and tasteful decoration continue across the first floor, each of the five bedrooms being doubles, the principal being served by recently updated en suite bathroom and the other four having access to a sizeable contemporary bathroom with separate shower.

    The property is approached via a sweeping gravel drive leading to the triple garage block and sizeable parking area in front. The house is flanked on the southern elevation by an inviting York Stone patio, a lawn extending around the perimeter of the building to the north and west. The majority of the garden extends to the south and east, predominantly lawned but dotted with numerous specimen trees and an orchard, including a mixture of apple and pear trees, across the driveway. Beyond this the land rises gradually, currently left as single grassland paddock providing scope for livestock or horses if desired.

As soon as I caught sight of the house I wanted to see more, the approach has a real wow factor and the house doesn't disappoint.
