An exceptional Grade II listed Georgian farmhouse with numerous outbuildings and grounds extending to about seven acres
North End Farm is a handsome red brick farmhouse dating from the late 18th century, Grade II listed on account of its architectural merits and historical significance. The original farm was clearly one of the largest and most important in the area in its day but more recently the house and buildings have been thoughtfully converted to form a practical and attractive family home, which takes full advantage of its idyllic edge of village setting.
Considerable thought and expertise went into the conversion and extension of the property, ensuring none of the finer period features were lost, resulting in a sizeable house of considerable character, providing in excess of 5000 square feet of beautifully presented accommodation, plus garaging and additional outbuildings/stores. The property is arranged over three floors, the ground floor consisting of a series of formal and classically proportioned reception rooms centering around a grand galleried entrance hall, the highlight being the orangery style kitchen/living room on the southern flank, finished with an extensive range of stylish contemporary units, topped with beautiful granite worktops and a full compliment of quality Miele and Neff appliances along with a Quooker tap, as well as underfloor heating. There is a large walk-in pantry serving the kitchen along with a useful utility room off the hallway with fitted units, Aga and access to the terrace. This is the perfect place for entertaining and for busy families to come together. In addition the formal lounge has a new multi fuel log burner.
The first floor is equally well balanced and well presented, accessed via a wide turn staircase, leading to a generous landing which provides access to five of the six bedrooms, served by three contemporary bathrooms. The second floor room is currently used as an office which could be utilised as a games room/bedroom, a door currently leading through to a large area, currently used for storage and offers scope to convert into further bedroom, dressing room and en suite if desired, subject to the necessary consents. There is a side entrance to the house with a separate staircase leading to the first and second floors.
The house is approached via large double wooden electric gates along a gravelled driveway, there is another entrance from the Bishop Burton Road giving separate access to the paddock and summerhouse/guest cottage.
Supporting the main house are a number of useful outbuildings, currently serving as stores and a potting shed, and a separate two bay garage block with office/gym on the far end, which could be used as additional accommodation and includes a modern bathroom with steam/shower unit. Opposite this across the large gravelled turning circle and parking area the formal lawned gardens extend to the south and east of the house, bordered by mature hedges, rising gently to a sun terrace and heated outdoor pool. There is a tiered lawn at the rear of the house with several seating areas.
The lawn continues up another level with a mature orchard, enveloping a recently renovated brick built summerhouse designed as a home office and guest cottage, to a level paddock of around three acres - this has independent gated access from Cherry Burton Road making it an ideal for those with livestock or horses. To the north side of the house is a private walled area with an old stable/potting shed.
