About this property

  • Highgate Farmhouse is a substantial detached stone farmhouse believed to date from 1672 with accommodation over three floors plus a small cellar area. The current owners have undertaken a huge renovation and refurbishment of the property which now combines beautiful and stylish accommodation with a contemporary feel.

    The heart of the house is the large farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room with cream five door Aga. From here a stone flagged hallway with built in wine bins leads to the three reception rooms, all with woodburner or working fireplace. Also off the hallway are the useful prep kitchen, large laundry room and boot room.

    On the first floor are three good sized bedrooms, plus a beautifully appointed family bathroom. There is also a shower room with separate w.c. and dressing area, which can be accessed off a bedroom or the landing. The other bedroom on this floor has an en suite dressing room. On the second floor are two attic style bedrooms. A further bedroom and bathroom suite is approached at the far end of the house and may be ideal for guests or staff.

    Outside a former barn has been converted into a bar and games room on the ground floor, and with separate first floor access, an office.

    The mainly walled gardens lie to one side of the house with shrub borders, and a large terrace between the kitchen and office. The stable block with two stables, tack room and hay/open store lies within the paddocks to the front of the house and can be seen from the property. There is ample parking to the front and side. In total believed to be approximately three acres.

    Agents Note: This property may be referred to locally and by the vendors as Highgate Manor.

This home is so beautifully done, like something out of Country Life, I just need my black labrador and a 4x4. A great combination of a farmhouse home with a modern, and very stylish finish.
