    About this property

    • A greatly extended and flexible Grade II listed home enjoying plenty of charm throughout and retaining many period features such as Inglenook fireplaces, exposed wooden beams with vaulted ceilings and flagstone flooring yet having a twist of modern living with underfloor heating with 8 zones, CAT5- wiring and a sound/music/television system with built-in speakers through most of the house.

      With parts dating back to the 17th century Middle Allercombe Farm is now restored to the highest of standards with a wonderful sociable farmhouse kitchen with an Aga, this leads to the breakfast area and utility. To the far end of the west side is a bedroom and shower room. Typical of its age and style the dining room which has a striking fireplace flows nicely into a sitting room with a wood burning stove, useful office area and a further reception room/snug.

      The east wing is currently arranged to enjoy four bedrooms, gym, a shower room and snug. Previously bedrooms 6,7 and 8 were part of a generous games room and with little work could be reinstated or be changed into a self-contained annexe – perfect for Airbnb or other similar uses (subject to necessary planning consent).

      Upstairs, the impressive principal bedroom with exposed beams, vaulted ceilings and high quality en-suite is a particular feature which now benefits from a recently re-fitted dressing room and walk in wardrobe. There is a further two bedrooms and family bathroom again fitted to a very high standard.

      Gardens and Grounds
      A particular feature to this property is the wonderful grounds with a large south facing lawn with well stocked and mature flower beds and vegetable garden. To the West side is a raised patio area with hot tub whilst on the East side of the house there is separate access with a driveway for additional parking (annex parking) and a timbre store building.

      To the front there is electric gates which open onto the extensive driveway providing plenty of parking and access to the double garage with electric doors.
