About this property

  • Lower Cross Farmhouse dates back to about 1660 with later, Victorian additions. It now provides a wonderfully characterful family home abounding with nooks, crannies and ancient beams.

    The ground floor rooms all interconnect ensuring a natural flow from one delightful room to another.

    The drawing room is worthy of particular mention with its triple aspect, wood burning stove, parquet flooring, French doors to the garden one way, and the conservatory at the other end. The conservatory, added by the present owners, and scented by jasmine trailing across one wall, has bi-fold doors opening to the rear garden and outside kitchen.

    The inviting kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with John Lewis of Hungerford units, has a delightful Esse Lionheart wood burning range cooker as well as a Falcon range cooker. The original bread oven remains in situ. The cosy sitting room, also with a wood burning stove connects directly onto the atmospheric dining room.

    A good sized utility room leads off the rear hall with a cloakroom and shower situated off.

    The main staircase, rising from the dining room, opens to a glazed galleried landing ensuring natural light filters through to the centre of the house.

    The principal bedroom is approached via an ancient wooden archway. The en suite bathroom boasts a deep Japanese soaking bath with a drench shower over. A bedroom leads off the vestibule which is presently used as a study and dressing room.

    The guest bedroom is a generous size and has a dual aspect. There are 2 further bedrooms and a family bathroom. This end of the house has a second staircase winding from the rear hall.

    Outside
    Situated within a conservation area, the house is approached via a gravel drive with parking for 5 cars and a garage, currently used as a gym.

    There is a further barn and a garden / tool shed which could provide additional accommodation subject to the usual planning consents. The front of the house is bordered by an old red brick wall with a mature pleached Lime hedge above. The pretty and large front garden is beautifully stocked with mature flowerbeds, shrubs and spring bulbs. There is an orchard with apples, pears, figs and a mulberry tree and a small woodland area. The front of the house is covered in climbing roses and wisteria and has a delightful east facing terrace.

    The west facing rear garden features different seating areas designed to maximise sun and light. There is a covered outside kitchen, ideal for al fresco dining and a separate grapevine covered pergola and fire pit area.

    At the end of the driveway wooden gates open to a track which in turn leads on to the paddock with a 3 stable block with water connected. The property also has vehicular access across and from the lane.

More than meets the eye. I'm not sure what I like best about this great home. The location, the wonderful outdoor kitchen or the pony paddock to the rear? Either way, it has it all!
