About this property

  • White Ash Farm occupies an idyllic rural setting amidst rolling pasture and woodland of approximately 73 acres, with a stylish contemporary five bedroom family home at the heart and planning for a separate detached four bedroom dwelling.

    Externally, the property retains the utilitarian character and appearance of the original agricultural barn whilst internally it boasts light and beautifully proportioned accommodation over two floors, with limestone flooring and underfloor heating to the bath and shower rooms.

    The front door opens to an impressive reception hall with centrally placed dividing oak and glass staircase rising to a superb galleried landing. Light and airy reception rooms comprise a dual aspect sitting room, a home office and a wonderful open plan L shaped room, incorporating family and dining room areas with views over the land to the south and west. The sleek kitchen is included in this excellent open plan space and is equipped with an extensive range of cupboards, central island and integral appliances including Bosch ovens and dishwasher and Neff coffee maker. There is an adjoining utility room with further cupboards and space for white goods.

    Off the stunning galleried landing there is access to a decked balcony. Five attractive double bedrooms are arranged over the first floor, with plantation-style shutters and all enjoy the scenic surrounding countryside views. The bedrooms are served by three en suite shower rooms and a family bathroom.

    White Ash Farm is approached over a long private track bounded by undulating fields. A spur winds off to the various outbuildings whilst the track continues to a five bar gate which opens and leads around to the substantial parking area situated to the front of the house.

    The fields are predominantly down to grazing and protected by several belts of woodland with a stream running through.
