About this property

  • Branch Farmhouse is a well presented Grade II Listed home that sits at the heart of the sought after village of Great Wilbraham. Originally the home dates back to the 16th Century with later modern additions all set within gardens and a paddock that extend to just over 1.4 acres. The property, with an abundance of period features, is set over two principal floors under pitch tiled roofs and is approached by a private gravel driveway that offers off road parking and a cart lodge, with a bloc paved path cutting through the delightful front garden and to the front door.

    The front door opens into the lobby that has both the drawing room and dining room leading directly off. The drawing room is set around an open inglenook fireplace and is full of charm thanks in part to its exposed beams. An open beamed dividing allows the room to be used as two areas, to create a study area. The dining room sets a warm atmosphere that works wonderfully for entertaining, with a hallway that gives access to a bathroom, comprising of a double walk in shower, panelled bath, wash basin and low level WC. The beautifully hand crafted oak kitchen fits seamlessly with the character of the home and benefits from an array of base and wall storage units, with the island located at the centre of the room offering further storage and power. An oil fired Aga sits within the original fireplace, adding to the charm. The utility room offers further storage and laundry facilities. A glass link from the kitchen leads to the modern extension via a rear hallway/boot room giving access to both the side and rear gardens. There is a second sitting room and with a part vaulted ceiling, is full of natural light from windows on three sides and a bi fold door that leads to the patio. The room could also be used as a ground floor bedroom as it benefits from an en suite shower room.

    To the first floor, which can be accessed via two separate staircases, are five double bedrooms. There is also the benefit of a walk-in wardrobe/store, and a corridor linking the two wings of the house. The principal bedroom and bedroom five have access to the rear staircase that leads into the sitting room. Bedroom five could also be used, if required, as a dressing room to accompany the principal bedroom as it benefits from cloakroom facilities.The first floor accommodation is completed by the family bathroom which comprises of a walk in shower, stand-alone roll top bath, pedestal wash basin and low level WC.

    Outside the beautifully private gardens extend to just over 1.4 acres including a versatile paddock and are predominantly laid to lawn with an array of mature trees cleverly placed to break up the landscape. The generous paved patio creates a courtyard area from the rear of the home, making a fantastic entertaining space for all to enjoy the open views over the gardens. Adjoining the cart lodge at the front of the property you will find two good sized stores and a sizable barn which itself could be converted potentially into annexe accommodation following obtaining the proper planning permissions.

When I picture a quintessential period village home, Branch Farmhouse is the house that jumps straight to my mind. From the eye catching pink rendered façade to the extensive gardens that I can imagine families enjoying for generations.
