About this property

  • Kingston Farmhouse is a handsome, south facing Grade II listed Georgian style family home with breathtaking countryside views. Inside is full of character and charm with an abundance of wonderful features throughout. The striking and impressive entrance hall is perfect for welcoming guests and offers a sense of grandeur with the pretty sweeping staircase to the first floor. Both the dining room and sitting room enjoy generous proportions and fine views across the valley as well as feature fireplaces. The farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room is perfect for everyday family life and has an impressive timber beam above the Aga. The kitchen itself benefits from an extensive range of fitted, handmade solid units with a granite worktop and a central island. Adjacent to the kitchen is the porch which in turn leads outside to the front of the house. Further accommodation on the ground floor includes a snug/library, wonderful north facing pantry and utility room with fitted kitchen. From the utility room, a second staircase with handmade iron handrail leads to the first floor landing with useful loft hatch. Subject to the relevant planning consents, this section of the house could be used as an annex if required.

    On the first floor there are five bedrooms (two en suites) and a bathroom. A room of particular interest is the principal bedroom which enjoys a beautiful en suite bathroom with separate shower. Three of the five bedrooms benefit from magnificent countryside views across the valley and beyond. The family bathroom, (which can also be used as an en suite to bedroom 2) has been recently updated by the current owners and is now outstanding with a free-standing bath and walk in shower.

    Outside, the grounds and gardens are magnificent with an array of mature shrubs, trees and teared lawn areas. Directly outside the house is a generous parking area with a timber open garage with power, secure store and attached shed, also with power. The garden is a delight and cleverly designed by the current owners to create many different spaces and seating areas to make the most of the outstanding views. Beyond the garden is a superb paddock, in all there is about 3 acres.
