Spacious living in a rural setting.
Farnborough Barn commands an enviable rural setting between the villages of Farnborough and Fenny Compton.
This detached property is of brick construction under a pitched tile roof and offers spacious versatile accommodation to suit today's modern family.
The property has been extensively modernised including kitchen and bathroom fittings, granite work surfaces, 5 gas ring, 2 electric ring, 4 oven kitchen range, Indian slate flooring, Amtico wooden floor boards, oil fired boiler and central heating system, radiator covers, double and triple glazing to all but 3 windows and doors, and spiral secondary staircase. These all combine well with various features including open fireplace, cast iron kitchen range and exposed timbers.
There is a generous kitchen and breakfast room, the all important hub of the house, with a delightful eating area enjoying the glorious aspect onto the garden to the rear, all
ideal for summer entertaining.
A spacious drawing room offers a dual aspect particularly with a lovely aspect to the east onto the gardens. The Dining Room is spacious and could be used as a games room (in the past has accommodated a full size snooker table).
At the southern end of the property are two ground floor bedrooms, playroom, bathroom and separate entrance porch. These would be ideal for teenagers, guests or with minor alteration into an integral, yet separate annexe. This area of the property has previously been used as a separate dwelling and has its own heating system, so could be converted subject to relevant planning consents.
Ample bedroom accommodation on the first floor accessed from two staircases, all with delightful views across the garden and open countryside beyond, with the principal bedroom having en suite dressing room/office and bath/ shower room.
Across the courtyard is The Gallery, a detached brick building once an indoor pool complex, but more recently adapted to separate annexe accommodation or for working from home. The accommodation has been converted whilst leaving the pool in place, so the pool could be reinstated.
One of the key features of the property is not only its rural setting, but also the extensive gardens that surround the house, all providing a real feeling of space and privacy.
Access from the road is via a electric gate, with full CCTV system in place controlling the gate and security.
There is a delightful partly walled garden to the west, north and east with many mature trees, pond, pergola and paved entertaining areas. Vegetable garden, greenhouse, summerhouse and gazebo. Hard tennis court. A stunning tree line avenue leads from the garden to the secluded seating area.
Double garage, extensive workshop and stores as well as ample off road parking to the central courtyard.
Comprehensive range of modern agricultural buildings include steel portal frame barn, timber stabling, implement stores, extensive concrete yard, further brick stabling and a
pair of open fronted timber barns/field shelters.
The property extends to about 40.16 acres (16.25 hectares) in total and is currently split between the following uses: Arable/pasture 22.96 acres (9.29 hectare), Permanent pasture 11.91 acres (4.82 hectare), Woodland 0.56 acres (0.23 hectare), House, buildings, ponds and miscellaneous 4.74 acres (1.92 hectare).
The farmland forms part of a larger agricultural holding at present and is down to permanent pasture and arable land. The land is all entered into a Countryside Stewardship scheme
under which the arable land is planted to flower rich species. Most fields are bordered by mature hedges and are fenced for livestock. A series of grass tracks connect most fields back to the farm buildings.
