An attractive Grade II listed period farmhouse and attached granary forming a superb family home with a large south facing garden.
Standing gable end to the main street, Pond Farm House is one of the oldest properties in this picturesque village. The core of the building dates from the late 17th century when the original farmhouse was accompanied by an outbuilding, thought to be a granary. The buildings have been amalgamated and updated throughout the 19th century and in recent years have undergone a significant programme of restoration and renovation resulting in the beautiful family home which is being offered today.
Whilst the property has been significantly modernised it retains a great deal of character and numerous period features which draw the eye around every turn. The style and standard of the refurbishment has certainly enhanced the building and created a layout which is in perfect harmony with modern lifestyles. Every room is of near perfect proportion, many with a really cosy feel, the kitchen/dining area being a real highlight. Designed and fitted by Chapel Kitchens in Nun Monkton a true farmhouse kitchen complete with a five oven Aga, beamed ceiling and stone flagged floor. This extends through into the former granary which now hosts the vaulted dining area which in turn opens onto the south facing patio and garden beyond.
The theme continues upstairs, where each of the five bedrooms exhibit a eye catching range of period fireplaces, beamed ceilings and traditional sash windows which provide contrasting views of the gardens and village street scape. Unlike many Grade II listed buildings there are ample bathrooms and plenty of storage space to support the five double bedrooms, all tastefully decorated and recently updated.
Perhaps one of the biggest assets is the larger than average rear garden, which extends to just over an acre and boarders open countryside to the south. Laid predominantly to lawn, dotted with mature trees, there are several sitting areas designed to take advantage of various stages of the day, as well as a useful timber garden store and generous gravelled parking area to one side.
