    • The Rookery Farm is an outstanding property offering wonderful accommodation, including a splendid stone coach house offering independent secondary accommodation. Positioned adjacent to the village church and basking in the southern sunlight, the Rookery Farm enjoys pastoral views to the south over adjoining countryside.

      Dating back to the 17th century with Victorian additions in the 19th century, the home features a captivating blend of brick and Bargate stone elevations. The property is the major portion of a period home. The division of the building was cleverly configured with privacy maintained. Internally, the interiors have been elegantly modernised, preserving the essence of its historic character. High ceilings, expansive windows, and refined architectural details characterize the elegant living spaces.

      Entering through a walled ironstone courtyard, adorned with an intricate zinc open porchway, the foyer welcomes guests with its striking black and white diamond tile flooring. The residence boasts two principal reception rooms, each exuding its own distinct charm. The older section offers a cozy ambiance with parquet flooring, exposed beams, and a rustic brick fireplace. Onward from here there is a sunny, double aspect study, perfectly tucked away, with built in furniture. The second principle reception room features soaring ceilings, arched details, and a wood-burning stove and double doors opening to the garden. The spacious kitchen, with its Victorian ceiling height and ample natural light is a sociable and culinary haven, with stylishly painted cabinetry, with a working island, AGA and built in appliances which include ovens, induction hob and generous larder. Access down from the entrance hall is a sizeable double room cellar and store.

      Upstairs, the principal bedroom enjoys a southerly double aspect out look to the garden and countryside beyond, features elegant room details and fireplace with a wood burning stove and boasts a luxury en suite bathroom and dressing room. Additionally spread across the first and second floors there are five further bedrooms, including three en suites. Each of the bathrooms are elegantly appointed.

      Complementing the main residence, the Gate Lodge offers open-plan living, two en suite bedrooms, and a cloakroom, ideal for guests or extended family.

      Outside, The Rookery Farm is a hidden gem, shielded by mature hedges and accessed via a gravel driveway flanked by stone pillars.

      A cobble-walled courtyard provides ample parking, while the south-facing garden beckons with its manicured lawns, planted borders, and charming cobbled terrace, perfect for al fresco gatherings. An additional paved terrace, complete with a pizza oven, offers an inviting setting for outdoor dining and relaxation.
