    About this property

    • Neats' Home is a substantial family house set within 1.8 acres of mostly walled gardens. The oldest part of the house and the barn date to 1750 with later additions to the house. During their tenure, the present owners have undertaken substantial work to extend and update the house.
      • 2011: new boiler, re plumbed, new pressurised system installed
      • 2012: roof re-done
      • 2016: new 5 door gas Aga with gas hob
      • 2019: Family room extended
      The kitchen with its five door Aga and gas hob, painted wood units beneath granite worktops is open to the large, dual aspect family room with bifold doors to the end wall, opening to the garden. A walk-in pantry lies just off. The L-shape, triple aspect drawing room has French doors to the garden and two fireplaces with stone surrounds. A smaller room, presently used as a playroom, would make an ideal study. The snug forms the oldest part of the house and incorporates an inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove. There are wooden shutters to the windows and bookshelves to one wall. All rooms interconnect creating a pleasing flow to the ground floor. Off the kitchen is a rear hallway with attached boot room and good-sized utility room.

      To the first floor are two principal bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms, one with a separate bath and shower, the second with a freestanding bath. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

      The mostly walled garden is a delight, separated by walls and mature beech hedging. The front garden is bordered by deep, mature herbaceous beds and the natural spring fed pond is planted with abundant snowdrops. There is a hexagonal, brick-built summerhouse and the rear garden has direct access off the farm track and offers the option for further parking. Here there are two stables and a large woodshed. Mature trees throughout the garden include walnut, cherry, pear, apple and quince.

      The stunning timber framed barn dates to 1750 and provides 88 sq ft of flexible, usable space.
