About this property

  • Larkfields is a well presented house of stone construction under a grey slate roof.

    The house is believed to be of late Georgian origins with various subsequent additions.

    The house offers extensive and versatile living on two floors. In particular, the ground floor accommodation flows off the central hallway with various reception rooms offering multiple uses and a real sense of space. The entrance has been enhanced by the addition of a conservatory and useful studio and en suite shower room, ideal for working from home, granny/guest accommodation or income stream. Four of the reception rooms and the kitchen have aspects onto the garden and fields beyond. Various doors open onto the garden allowing for easy entertaining.

    The six bedrooms and four bath/shower rooms further complement what is a really generous family house. At the western end of the house is useful general store for boots and coats with a door and staircase leading to another room, currently used as an artist's studio. Here there is scope to adapt this end of the house into a self-contained annexe, subject to the relevant consents.

    Modern improvements include double glazing, wood burners, white bathroom fittings, a painted shaker style kitchen with granite work surfaces, built in book shelves and built in bedroom furniture.

    Outside there are lovely landscaped and well-tended gardens, all enjoying a southerly aspect.

    The driveway leads up to the front of the house where there is a central ornamental pond and fountain, turning circle and ample off road parking. The driveway then continues to the equestrian facilities to the west.

    The equestrian facilities are where this property comes into its own with American barn housing eight Monarch boxes (and space for two more), tack room and feed room. To complement this there is a covered Monarch horse walker and 60m x 20m outdoor arena. There is ample parking and turning for a number of cars and a horse lorry.

    To the south there are number of post and railed and watered fenced paddocks with a field shelter, extending to about 9.66 acres. In all the property extends to about 11.04 acres.

    Key attributes are rural living, southerly views, space, privacy, versatile accommodation and equestrian facilities.

I think this is definitely best in class! The rural setting and views is what makes it for me.
