About this property

  • Home Farm is a truly fabulous late Victorian family house, which offers substantial and stylishly presented accommodation over two floors and set in lovely gardens and grounds of about 1 acre and with an adjoining paddock to the side of about 1.09 acres; in all, about 2.09 acres.

    The house was significantly improved and enlarged by the present owners some years ago and now with five reception rooms downstairs and six bedrooms upstairs, the overall space is fantastic. There are many rooms of note, not least the elegant dual aspect drawing room and bright and spacious kitchen/breakfast room, which features an Aga at one end and a lovely built-in corner seating area and table at the other. This is undoubtedly the 'hub' of the house where the family congregates, yet from here, you can step down into the bright and spacious TV and garden room where views down the garden can really be enjoyed.

    For those needing to work from home, there is a great home office/study and if you have pets, in particular dogs, there is a large boot room with a door out to the rear. Within the original part of the house and either side of the main hallway, are two rather elegant rooms, one the dining room and the other, the sitting room with a lovely open fireplace.

    The house is accessed via a small porch, entering into a large double height hallway. From this hallway, a separate staircase rises to bedroom six, which is perfect for either an au-pair, teenager or even a second home office, if required, and also features its own en suite.

    Off the main landing, the remaining five bedrooms can be found. The main bedroom and a bathroom opposite create the perfect principal suite, whilst two of the other bedrooms also enjoy en suites.

    Outside
    Home Farm is approached over its own long and private driveway with automated gates standing at the head of the drive. Once at the top, the driveway sweeps round to the left and in front of the house where parking for at least three cars can be found. At the top of the drive, a large open oak framed carport stands with a large area to the side, which is ideal for a horse trailer or something of a similar size.

    There are principally two outbuildings. A larger one that can house ride on lawn mowers, a car, bikes, outdoor chest freezer etc, and a smaller brick barn. The attractive smaller brick barn is currently used for storing hay and wood, but has got planning permission to be turned into a single dwelling/outside office.

    In addition to the two barns, there is a small stable block with 2 loose boxes and tack room. There is also a woodshed attached to the larger barn, which provides further useful storage.

    The gardens are a particular feature with an oak framed pergola immediately to the rear with sun terrace below, and lawned gardens sweeping away from the house down to bordering hedgerows. To the front lies a pretty section of garden which includes a productive fruit and vegetable garden.

    For those with an equestrian interest, there is an adjoining paddock, which is enclosed by post and rail fencing, has water supplied and features a good quality field shelter.
