    About this property

    • Broadmead Farm is a handsome detached former farmhouse, dating in part to both the 18th & 19th centuries and benefitting from all the charm and character of these build periods. The property has been subject to the introduction of later additions and, more recently, an extensive programme of internal redevelopment and reconfiguration to create a beautiful traditional family home with a lovely contemporary twist including bespoke joinery throughout.

      The property enjoys a wonderful semi-rural location and is situated within four acres of glorious formal gardens and grounds, themselves surrounded by open farmland. The tranquillity of the location is matched by its convenience to local amenities, with the villages of Wingrave and Cheddington both within four miles.

      The property provides close to 4,000 sqft of adaptable living space arranged over two well planned floors, with a split level design cleverly defining the more open plan areas. Divided into two wings, the living accommodation comprises a traditional entrance hall with cloakroom and storage, which gives access to a generous formal living room with feature brick fireplace and inset wood burning stove. The living room in turn opens into a triple aspect family room by way of an open single step square archway. This wonderfully light and spacious room enjoys views over the formal gardens. Accessed from a further internal hallway are a TV/family room and a useful home office. From here a secondary stone staircase leads down the original cellar, ideal as a wine store.

      Separate from the main living accommodation is a spectacular open plan kitchen/breakfast room/dining room. This beautifully designed room features a lovely double vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers a pretty picture window. The kitchen itself has been extensively remodelled with a contemporary take on a classic farmhouse design and comprises an extensive range of wall, base and full-height larder style units along with a matching central island and bay window seating. Adjacent to the kitchen is a generous utility room/boot room with bespoke units providing ample storage. Accessed from the utility is a ground floor guest bedroom with en-suite shower room.

      On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, all with exceptional views over the gardens and countryside beyond, served by two well-appointed bath/shower rooms.

      A feature of the property is its wonderful semi-rural setting and accompanying views. Set well back within its formal gardens, the house is positioned at the end of a tree lined gravel driveway which passes the property's own paddocks and on to an open gravel courtyard parking area with feature turning circle leading to the twin barn style garages and garden store.

      The grounds themselves have been extensively landscaped to provide beautifully arranged formal gardens mainly laid to lawn with an abundance of well stocked beds and seating areas from which to enjoy them. To the far side of the gardens there is a natural pond set behind black wrought iron fencing. Further parkland style gardens provide a more rural vista along with a Japanese inspired Zen garden and extensive raised vegetable beds which are ideal for a taste of rural living.
