A beautiful and unique family home set in mature gardens and grounds of over 6.7 acres, with lovely views over open countryside, in an idyllic yet convenient position
Built in 1934 by WF Crittall, New Farm has been sensitively preserved with careful and sympathetic renovations and modernisation works.
An impressive glazed atrium hallway encloses the staircase which serves all levels. The principal reception rooms include the main drawing room with doors opening onto the garden terrace, a feature period fireplace and original 1930's wallpaper. A cosy tv room/ snug overlooks the front gardens. At the rear there is a unique octagonal dining room which is connected to the kitchen via a serving hatch. The original kitchen which is at the front of the house in the east wing is flanked by a butler's pantry and a larder. Behind the kitchen is a study leading to a self-contained annexe with separate entrance, toilet and bathroom and a large south facing room currently used as an office.
On the first floor, the central landing gives access to six bedrooms. The master bedroom enjoys dual aspect views and an en suite. There are two further bathrooms on this floor with a laundry room and further storage. Three of the four rearward facing rooms share a balcony with lovely countryside views. The second floor houses the boiler room (recently updated) with a door opening onto the roof from which there are panoramic views.
Next to the house, a building originally used as an art studio now incorporates a bedroom and a bathroom with full height glazed windows. In addition there is a double garage, various storage rooms and other outbuildings within the gardens themselves.
The house is surrounded by mature gardens extending to around 6.7 acres. The secluded gardens have remained true to the original 1930's design with many mature trees and shrubs and magnificent beech hedges. The gardens include a paddock, two orchards, two ponds, a vegetable garden, a laundry garden and a badminton garden. There is also a tennis court which is not currently in use. The house itself is approached by a sweeping gravelled driveway with turning space in front of the garages and front door.
