Internally, the rooms are well proportioned, with numerous features, including exposed beams, brick floors and open fireplaces. The entrance hall has a brick floor, a side cloakroom and opens to a full height reception hall/garden room with French doors to the gardens and galleried landing over. The drawing room has an inset fireplace, recessed bookcases, bay window and French doors. The dining room opens through to the kitchen with an electric Aga and fitted units. Beyond the kitchen is a side hall, pantry and utility. The accommodation links to a large vaulted converted barn and forms the main reception area featuring a vaulted ceiling with a side kitchen area, wood burner and a staircase to a galleried dining area along with a side stair to a snug sitting room. A glazed side door to the house leads to a side hall with a shower room to one side and through to the side sitting room. A spiral stair leads to a further bedroom ideal for guest accommodation. The main staircase rises onto the galleried landing. The principal bedroom has built-in cupboards and an en-suite bathroom. A side landing leads to three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The landing also connects through to the galleried room overlooking the main vaulted reception room.
Bridge Farm is set well back from the road approached over a gravel drive passing the triple garage with side store and a side drive which leads round to the side entrance of the house.

This is a great house which doesn't fail to impress. The accommodation is a blend of farmhouse and barn conversion with a great parcel of land and really useful outbuildings.Tom Orford
