A classic period farmhouse with substantial land, outbuildings and gardens close to Stainfield.
Offering a huge feeling of privacy, Hermitage Farm is set back from the road behind the electric gates of a long gated driveway in a rural position to the southern outskirts of Stainfield. The extensive land and grounds include a large selection of practical outbuildings and barns as well as paddocks, fields and secluded south-facing gardens with a large pond, orchard and summerhouse. Nestled within the surrounding countryside, the house dates back to pre1900s and retains a wealth of original charm with exposed timber beams. Well-maintained throughout, there is the potential for it to be refreshed and updated to suit your own tastes and needs. The versatile layout extends to over 2100 sq ft and offers a variety of double aspect reception rooms with doors to the garden, a country-style kitchen, three bedrooms and an additional dressing room.
Exposed timber beams feature throughout the accommodation lending charm and character, while the surrounding landscape provides attractive outlooks to each room. On the ground floor a central hallway leads into two double aspect reception rooms providing ample entertaining space and benefiting from sliding doors to the garden. A spacious 32ft sitting/dining room has a marvellous working limestone fireplace, while an additional sitting room with a further focal point fireplace adds space to relax as a family. A large country kitchen is fully fitted with traditional wood cabinets and accommodates a range of freestanding appliances and a central dining table. A separate utility room with a WC is accessed from the hallway. The first-floor accommodation offers plenty of possibilities to be reconfigured and currently features three generous bedrooms. Two are double aspect, and one is en suite to the family bathroom. A further dressing room generates flexible space and storage.
The well-maintained land that encompasses the farmhouse is fenced to provide a good degree of security and privacy, while a long gated driveway combines with a carport to provide off-road parking for several vehicles.
Two substantial paddocks sit to the front of the house, and a wide variety of outbuildings and barns are of use for a working farm. Bordered by mature greenery, the established lawn of the attractive south-facing rear garden stretches down to a pretty pond and enjoys lovely views of the adjoining field and countryside. A summerhouse and impressive modern greenhouse are notable additions.
