About this property

  • Bonham Farm, set within about 22 acres, is a detached former farmhouse that was largely rebuilt in the 1960s but is now in need of further modernisation or potential replacement, subject to any necessary planning approval. The current layout of the house provides two formal reception rooms, a good sized kitchen/breakfast room and utility/boot room with the original garage converted into a home office/den. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms and a bathroom. There is also a useful cellar.

    Beyond but in sight of the house are an extensive collection of outbuildings, some in state of disrepair, which includes a number of stables with tack room and hay store, workshops, stores, garages and car ports as well as a large Dutch barn for farm machinery etc. These together with a menage will appeal to the equestrian enthusiast. The long plot then opens on to large areas of paddocks and wildlife meadows, in total about 22 acres.

    The wonderful setting and potential are undoubtedly the major features with the location conveniently in the heart of Stewkley, with one entrance set to the side of a pretty row of cottages and a secondary entrance by-passing the house into the fields, near the fork in Ivy Lane.
