About this property

  • Worsall Farmhouse is a well-loved and characterful family home. Originally two cottages, the house has been extended and enlarged over the years, most recently in 2000, when the kitchen and mezzanine, boot room, utility and cloakroom were added. A wonderfully evocative farmhouse kitchen, open to the eaves, is an ideal space for family to gather and spend time in. A four-door Aga sits between painted wood units beneath a reclaimed Brazilian green slate worktop. A huge butler sink has a traditional wooden drainer to one side. There is a Rangemaster gas hob and large walk-in pantry with marble slab. A stable door opens to a small, covered terrace on the south side of the garden. A balustraded mezzanine, overlooking the kitchen, is presently used as a study, but would make an ideal playroom. The drawing room, directly off the flagstoned entrance hall, has a square bay and French doors opening to the garden, both with wooden shutters and wonderful views towards the church. A fireplace houses a Clearview woodburning stove. The dining room, previously the kitchen, still features the large fireplace surround, and the cosy sitting room, also with a woodburning stove, lies just beyond. Off the hallway is a good-sized boot room, with a door to the garden, utility room and cloakroom.

    A beautiful bespoke oak staircase with mahogany handrail rises to the first floor from the stone flagged entrance hall. The dual aspect principal bedroom has a working cast iron fireplace and large en suite bathroom and dressing room.

    There are two further bedrooms on this floor, one with an en suite and bespoke wardrobe, a family bathroom and two large linen cupboards. French doors open to the spacious mezzanine, presently used as a study.

    On the second floor are three further bedrooms, and a family bathroom. A large room, presently used as a teenager's den, has pipework in situ for a bathroom, creating the option for a seventh bedroom with en suite facilities.

    There are two gated driveways off the lane with plenty of gravel parking. Gardens and grounds wrap around two sides of the farmhouse with numerous mature trees including willow, oak, copper beech and a small silver birch copse. The 12m pool sits within a landscaped terrace and abuts the converted stable building, which now provides the pool house, with its beautifully appointed changing room, shower and cloakroom. The building also houses the pump room, store and garden machinery garage. The tennis court lies just beyond.
    To one side of the gravel courtyard is the old stone hayloft, now used for storage with an outside staircase rising to a first floor.

    A further stone outbuilding on the boundary of the grounds has planning consent to convert to a two bedroomed cottage.

    There is a 4 bay Dutch barn and an additional 8 acres.

If you look out of the bay window from the sitting room, you look across the sloping fields, up the church in the village. That says it all. A lovely home, in a perfect spot. It will undoubtedly make the next family who occupy it, very happy.
