    About this property

    • Kennel Farm is a wonderful country house set in an idyllic location and surrounded by glorious open countryside. Believed to date from the early 18th century, the property was purchased by the current owners in 2011 whereupon they embarked upon a comprehensive programme of renovation creating a beautiful home with a relaxed and welcoming interior. Great care was taken to retain the charm and character of the original farmhouse with exposed ceiling beams, roof trusses, large stone inglenook fireplaces complimented by areas of more modern oak flooring and travertine stone with underfloor heating.

      A key part of the house is the fine kitchen/family room which is now the informal social hub of the property, an exceptional room flooded with the morning sunshine with a pair of bifold doors opening to the large entertaining terrace with the wide expanse of lawn beyond. The kitchen is extremely well designed and includes an extensive range of appliances to include two ovens, three wine chillers, two induction hobs, a dishwasher, coffee machine and a cabinet fridge freezer. The central island features an impressively large piece of decorative granite with a breakfast bar alongside.
      The lower level bedroom layout works extremely well, providing the house with a true sense of individuality and all but one of these bedrooms are en suite and three of them having direct access to the outside. On the first floor there are two further bedrooms with a mezzanine sitting room, the whole of this floor could be used as an suite for an independent family member.

      With the benefit of its own entrance, the home office is ideal for those that now choose to work from home. Given that it has its own kitchenette, this part of the house offers terrific flexibility, certainly ideal as fully self-contained secondary accommodation (subject to planning approval) or as leisure suite with gym or perhaps a home cinema.

      Kennel Barn brings yet further dimension to this substantial property. A detached coach house lying to the south of the main house and annexe, it has again been meticulously restored and has generated significant income having been successfully let on an assured shorthold tenancy. It comprises of a sitting room, dining room , garden room with atrium, fitted kitchen, utility and 2 bedrooms (3 if the dining room is used as such). The barn has its own sunny paved garden and a dedicated parking area.

      The Grounds
      Approached via a pair of electric iron gates, the driveway split to provide access to the house at lower and upper level and sweeps passed the adjoining field to Kennel Barn beyond. Surrounding the house are large areas of well-tended lawn with ornamental trees, box hedges and maturing shrubs. The paved terrace beyond the kitchen is an idyllic spot to take in the views over the grounds with a further south facing barbecue area with summer house at the upper level. The 4 acre area of land to the east of the house has access off the main drive.
