    About this property

    • Halterworth Farm is an attractive period farmhouse that has been significantly enhanced during the current owners occupation. The resulting accommodation is well presented and includes some really good living spaces. The vaulted kitchen/breakfast room, fitted by local company Journeys End, with its extensive range of floor and wall mounted units, including hardwood cupboard and drawer sections with granite work surfaces over is a real feature room and the large central island creates a real focal point as well as a practical arrangement; bi fold doors open up the entirety of one side linking through to the rear terrace and gardens beyond. The entrance hall and hallway with its original stone floor gives a particularly welcoming feel. Off this main area is access to all principal reception rooms including a dining room which is well proportioned with a central fireplace offering a great area for formal occasions. The principal sitting room is again well proportioned with a central fireplace feature giving a real character feel. A family room/study with wood burning stove provides good informal space as well as an area for home working.

      At first floor level there are four bedrooms including a principal bedroom with en suite. The remaining three bedrooms are serviced by a generous family bathroom. There is a basement/bedroom which provides good space for storage and offers further potential. There is also a shower room at this level.

      Annexe
      This was converted by the current owners and comes with some really well-proportioned living spaces. At ground floor level there is a kitchen/breakfast room which comes with a range of floor and wall mounted units and granite worktops. The floor reception room is L-shaped and vaulted giving a great feeling of space and works well as a sitting/dining room. At first floor level there is a galleried landing and there are two bedrooms both of which are serviced by a separate bathroom.

      OUTSIDE
      The property is approached via a gateway which opens on to a gravel driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles as well as access to the garage and comprehensive range of outbuildings. The property sits behind a mature hedgerow which provides great privacy with attractive beds running across the front of the garden. The more formal grounds lie to the rear of the property and include a large terraced area which provides great space for outdoor entertaining and relaxing, from here lawns run up to one of two paddocks. The annexe has its own outdoor space which sits to the side of the main garden. The two paddocks (with post and rail fencing) provide excellent turnout facilities, one having its own field shelter. The outbuildings are extremely versatile and include a party barn as well as a number of stables.
