About this property

  • A classic red brick Victorian farmhouse with a slate tiled roof, North Allenford Farmhouse was originally two cottages and dates from 1893, as evidenced by the stone plaque set into the front elevation of the house.

    It benefits from generous sized rooms, high ceilings and faces south-west, with striking views across countryside towards Tidpit Down. Entrance is into a hall, with a quarry tiled floor. The dual-aspect sitting room faces south-west and has a working fireplace with a brick surround. The adjacent dining room has a working Victorian fireplace. A boot room, with quarry tiled floor, leads through to the triple-aspect kitchen/breakfast room, which has a back door onto the drive and a stable door onto a west-facing terrace. A pretty bay window, with a window-seat, looks out over the garden. A range of oak-fronted cupboards sit either side of a two-oven Aga and integrated appliances include an electric hob and dishwasher.

    Upstairs is a dual-aspect principal bedroom, with wonderful rural views and an en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms, both with their original Victorian fireplaces, and a single bedroom. The family bathroom has a cast iron, claw-foot, free-standing bath, a separate shower and a built-in linen cupboard. A staircase to the attic floor leads to a large playroom and a study.

    The property is approached over a gravel driveway, with parking for several cars. The drive sweeps round to the rear of the house, in front of the brick outbuildings and single garage, with storage above. The outbuildings house the original bread-oven and a Belfast sink. They are plumbed for a washing machine. The walled gardens are predominantly laid to lawn. A copse of mature beech trees and a paddock, with a field-shelter, lie to the east and north of the house.

This is a great family home and I love the feel of it - the kitchen is the heart of it, but if you like the outdoors, there are gardens, woodland and paddock to enjoy too!
