Stylish and charming rural home.
Home Farm House is a stylish and charming home, set off a quiet land in the hamlet of Rushall yet with great convenience for Diss station and the market town of Harleston. The house is at the end of a line of former farm buildings that were thoughtfully converted and latterly remodelled, to create a south facing home enjoying an abundance of light through the exceptional amount of glazing to both floors...
The interiors are wonderfully arranged and presented. The majority of the ground floor is a fantastically bright dual aspect open plan space, comprising a bespoke kitchen, dining area and flowing through to a substantial living area, the entirety with a broadly south facing orientation with views to either or both the front and rear gardens. The kitchen is one of simple clean lines, with central island, breakfast bar and gas hobs, with a contemporary woodburner in one corner. The living area, again with woodburner, has bespoke cabinetry and shelving, and exposed beams. A pantry off the kitchen, a WC and a useful boot room complete the ground floor of the house.
The first floor is equally as light and spacious. There are five bedrooms in total, although one is currently utilised as a study. The principal bedroom is charming with exposed brick and flint wall and built in wardrobes, with an adjoining shower room. The remaining bedrooms are all linked by a central landing and served by either the shower room or a bathroom, both of which are conveniently either end of the house. All bedrooms enjoy fine views over gardens and countryside beyond.
Throughout the house are juxtaposing interior features that create a stylish and edgy feel, with exposed flint, glazed balustrades, contemporary cabinets and period panelling. It makes for a very calming and welcoming house.
A wing of outbuildings beside the house provides a tantalising opportunity to link and create further accommodation should it be required or desired.
A wooden five bar gates provides the entrance to a gravelled private parking area, beside the front garden and house. The gardens are a delight and have a mix of formal and informal areas to enjoy.
The front garden is mainly laid to lawn, it spring bulbs and shrubs, and a bench looking out over a large pond, providing a tranquil area to sit and ponder. A pedestrian door leads through to a courtyard on the west of the house, which links the house to the outbuildings. These traditionally built buildings, of about 630 sq ft currently host a utility room, storage room and a games/party/storage room measuring 9.1m x 4.5m , with glazed bi folding doors out to the gardens.
The south facing garden is enclosed to the east, north and west by the house and buildings, providing a wonderfully sheltered sun trap throughout the day. An initial brick weaved terrace adjoins the house, where the open plan living space opens out to, ideal for outside dining and entertaining. An expanse of lawn sweeps away from the house, left relatively wild given the presence of cowslips, with deep well stocked herbaceous beds on the border with plenty of tulips and alliums. A further seating area with fire pit is at the end of the garden beside a low wall, looking out over neighbouring pond and meadows.

The blend of a high specification, modern interior with the character features of the old farm building make for a superb country retreat.Ben RivettProperty agent
