About this property

  • Slades Farm is a quintessential Grade II Listed farmhouse in the attractive village of Whitley. Set back from the road in very private grounds, the house enjoys wonderful views of its land and far reaching views southwards over farmland.

    The property is beautifully presented throughout, with an excellent balance between entertaining and bedroom accommodation. Entered via a pretty stone pathway up to the front door, a corridor to the right hand side leads down to the large kitchen/family room set within a converted barn that is now attached to the main house by a modern glass addition. On the left hand side is a cosy snug with views over the rear garden. The kitchen has lovely stone floors and exposed beams overhead with extensive shaker-style cabinetry with a substantial central island and an gas-fired aga. This room is the heart of the house with space for both a large dining table and a family/tv area at the opposite end, and is serviced by three sets of doors leading out in to the garden.

    At the opposite end of the house is another reception room, currently utilised as a charming dining room with original stone fireplace and mullion windows. From here is one of two staircases servicing the first floor as well as access to a large utility room and cloakroom.

    On the first floor are four generous bedrooms split between the original house and the barn conversion, each with built in storage, and three bath/shower rooms (two en suite). The second floor comprises a further two bedrooms, set within the pitch of the roof, as well as one en suite shower room.


    The gardens and grounds of Slades Farm are of particular note and extend to just over 1.8 acres. The property is accessed from Top Lane down a gravelled driveway to an extensive parking area. There are formal landscaped gardens to the front and back of the property with attractive planting, vegetable gardens and extensive lawned areas. There are exceptional views over surrounding fields and countryside. The property has the benefit of several outbuildings including a stone cattle shed with development potential (subject to the necessary consents being obtained), stables and an office building.
