A Charming residential and commercial farm extending to about 82 acres.
Situated in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside, Mansty Farm has been owned by the current family for 27 years and comprises an attractive Georgian farmhouse with annexe flat, a contemporary barn conversion known as The Old Byre, a range of agricultural buildings and barns used for agricultural, equestrian and storage uses, set in about 82 acres.
Situated to the western side of the farmyard, Mansty Farmhouse is accessed via a private driveway which sweeps to reveal the handsome, stone façade which enjoys far reaching countryside views.
The well-proportioned reception rooms offer plenty of natural light and retain many original features including oak flooring, original panel doors, sash windows with shutters, bay French windows to the front, decorative cornicing and ceiling roses and open fireplaces.
The farmhouse kitchen is fitted with a range of cupboards and units, Corian sink and work surfaces, an oil-fired two-oven Aga set in a stone surround and has tiled flooring. Stone steps lead to the larder with the original brick thrawls and the old cheese press. There is a utility room with stone flooring, the original Belfast sink, range and bread oven; an office; W/C; and door leading outside to the farm.
The house has a dry cellar with two rooms and can be accessed either from the main hall or outside.
The attractive oak staircase rises to the first floor off which the four bedrooms flow. The principal suite enjoys a dual aspect with fine views, fitted cupboards and a window seat, a dressing area with mirror-fronted wardrobes and en suite shower room. There are a further three double bedrooms, two with a dual aspect, and a family bathroom with a separate bath and shower.
The gardens at Mansty Farm are mainly laid to lawn with well stocked beds and a selection of trees including sycamore, beech and a most attractive oak tree with a swing beneath. A stone ha-ha provides a boundary to the parkland beyond. To the rear of the property is a stone terrace and lawn area as well as a further terrace to the side. There is a brick built, double car port and vegetable patch.
Accessed via a wooden staircase to the rear of the farmhouse, the flat is situated above the utility room and office. It briefly comprises a kitchen with fitted units, a sitting room, double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room.
THE OLD BYRE
Converted in 2005, The Old Byre is located to the north western side of the farmyard via its own driveway to an ample gravel parking area.
It is a modern barn conversion briefly comprising a kitchen with a range of fitted cupboards and units with an integrated oven, microwave and dishwasher; a utility room with fitted units and a door outside; sitting room with exposed beams and a door to the courtyard; and a dining room with a fireplace and French doors to the terrace. There are three double bedrooms, two with a Jack and Jill' facility and one with an en suite shower room. There is a terrace to the front of the barn with lawn beyond which opens into the farmhouse garden.
Mansty Farm has significant development potential. There will be an overage clause/restrictive covenant on the farm buildings. If planning permission was granted for residential conversion an addition payment of 25% of the increase in value will be payable to the Vendors for a 25 year period.
