About this property

  • Coton House Farm has recently undergone refurbishment; particularly of note are improvements to the windows, plumbing, heating and re-decoration. Outside, an entrance has been added to the front of the house and the pasture has undergone upgrading including re-fencing and improvements to the outbuildings and water pool. The house retains many original features including an inglenook fireplace, exposed beams and original doors.

    The house is entered via a quarry tile hallway with wood panelled walls which lead to a drawing room and dining room which enjoy lovely views over the surrounding countryside.

    The drawing room includes a marble fireplace which can be used for an open or electric fire, hardwood flooring, a double aspect and is full of natural light with double patio doors leading to the garden. The dining room features a brick inglenook which can accommodate an open or an electric fire and wood panelled walls.

    The kitchen breakfast is spacious, with a log burner, quarry tiles and well sized pantry leading off it. The kitchen is entered through the rear porch which also includes a downstairs cloak room and utility area. The hallway also includes a doorway with brick stairs leading down to the cellars.

    From the hallway stairs lead up to the first floor where there are two generous double bedrooms, with the principal having a double aspect. Recently, a door has been added for an en suite into the family bathroom. There is a separate shower room which benefits from extensive built in cupboards.

    On the second floor is a panelled landing with a library/seating area. There are two further double bedrooms which have been recently refurbished and offer a wonderful feel.

    Coton House Farm is accessed through double gates leading into a driveway with ample parking. There are numerous brick and tile outbuildings which include 5 stables, a dog kennel, 2 store rooms, a barn, workshop and a large open fronted field shelter.

    The grounds extend to approximately 5 acres split into paddocks which are flat, have mains water to troughs, offer good grazing and feature a lovely pond. The remainder is set to garden with a large grassed area, mature trees and a sunken patio.
