    About this property

    • A handsome detached Cotswold farmhouse, fully modernised to provide a wonderful family property. The present owners have resided in the property for approximately 12 years and have enhanced the property further, with various other improvements including opening up the kitchen area into the beautiful orangery overlooking the garden. With stylish decoration and contemporary furnishings the property now has a very light and airy feel to it and unusually for a farmhouse it has high ceilings with cornicing and very well proportioned rooms.

      Upper Farm is set in stunning landscaped gardens which to the rear are south facing and offer privacy and seclusion. The property has the benefit of a separate paddock, tennis court and stone outbuildings, together with parking for numerous vehicles.

      An ecclesiastical theme features through the property, with arched doorways and this theme continues within the decoration of many of the natural wood doors and glazing throughout the property. Many of the windows have stone mullion surrounds.

      The property is presented in excellent decorative order and as well as the four principle bedrooms on the first and second floor, has the benefit of two further bedrooms at ground floor level with a shower room which could potentially be used as a separate annexe.

      OUTSIDE
      Upper Farm is approached via an entrance with high hedgerows and stonewalling leading to a large gravelled parking area. The former stone-built cow byre provides covered parking for 4 vehicles and a storage area.

      The garden to the front features raised flowerbeds, shrubberies and steps leading up to a large raised terrace which in turn leads to the front door.

      Adjacent to the main house is The Granary, with stone steps leading up to a first floor room. A door to the side leads into the ground floor room. A gravelled pathway leads to the east side of the property with stone steps leading down to a tennis court which has an astro surface and is fully fenced.

      The main garden area to the rear of the property consists of a gravelled area with beautiful stone walling, roses and stone steps leading out to a large raised lawn, which is bordered to the rear by natural stone walling. The whole garden is bordered by mature trees. A separate vehicular access to the west side of the property via a five-bar gate leads to a further gravelled area enclosed by natural stone walls and shrubberies. There is an external gas-fired boiler providing domestic hot water and central heating, together with numerous water taps and courtesy lighting.

      Off the rear raised lawn to the east is a large paddock within which is a kitchen garden, greenhouse and numerous mature trees including oaks and copper beech, all of which are enclosed by high hedgerows and stone walls.
