Perfectly situated on a gently sloping hillside with outstanding southerly views over the town, is this lovely family home with great private equestrian facilities.
Approaching Stowe Farm off Seymour Court Road, through electric gates, there is a large driveway with ample parking. The farmhouse has handsome elevations and sits well within its formal gardens to the front, side and rear.
Having been refurbished over the recent past the house provides lovely accommodation, beautifully presented throughout with an attractive blend of modern and traditional materials. The ground floor provides a large open plan family environment by way of a kitchen, dining room and sitting room. This substantial room is beautifully appointed with stone flooring (with under floor heating) and a modern fitted kitchen. A large Aga with gas burner hob is complemented by a full range of fitted kitchen appliances. A utility/laundry room is off the kitchen with separate access to the side driveway. Further ground floor accommodation is by way of a cosy snug/television room and a guest cloakroom.
To the first floor is a spacious hallway, leading to four double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom is particularly noteworthy, being a substantial suite of a fitted dressing room, modern shower room and a spacious bedroom. The bedroom area has high vaulted ceilings and a Juliet balcony on the gable end, providing beautiful views over the private gardens, stables, paddocks and also down the hillside to Marlow.
The formal farmhouse gardens are to two sides of the property, providing a mix of formal lawn, decorative shrubbery and boundary hedgerow. Off the kitchen is a large paved patio perfect for al fresco dining. To the rear of the garden through an arched hedge is a kitchen garden with productive fruit and vegetable beds.
Behind the farmhouse with its own private driveway and garden is a lovely self-contained detached annexe that is in similarly great condition. Providing a separate kitchen, living room, double bedroom and shower room it is ideal for short or long term guests, or possibly a more permanent rent-paying tenant.
A principal timber stable building wraps around a paved courtyard, comprising four stables, tack room, kitchen/laundry, shower room, cloakroom and a store. In addition there are four further detached stables set back just off the courtyard. In all the stabling is in excellent order and is ideally situated within view of the farmhouse.
Two further high quality brick and timber outbuildings provide a further 2,400 sqft of barns and additional stables, these are well constructed with electric roller doors.
A large Dutch barn of about 1,200 sqft is to the rear of the stables and provides dry storage under an attractive arched roof, with a large hardstanding in front.
Adjacent to the stables and outbuildings is a fenced manège, central on the plot surrounded to the sides and rear by paddocks, and also providing a lovely elevated view down the hillside.
The grounds in total come to about 6.5 acres. Beyond the formal gardens the grounds are split into paddocks with a mixture of hedgerow and post-and-rail fencing. To the far perimeter is a gate providing access to the footpath (to Marlow) and out onto Seymour Plain.
Whilst no planning permission currently exists, our client has considered the possible conversion of (and an extension to) the Dutch Barn to create a new five bedroom residential home. Whilst a scheme proposal is available for viewing, we make no warranty or guarantee as to the prospects of obtaining consent. Buyers must make their own enquiries.
