A beautifully presented, approximately 3,280 sq ft (305 sq m) family home with substantial gardens.
Farmfield is a well presented detached property, constructed during the late 1920s in the Arts & Crafts style of dark brick elevations with painted Crittal windows beneath a tiled roof.
The property, which has a symmetrical façade, extends to approximately 3,280 sq ft (305 sq m) with excellent well planned family accommodation laid out over three floors.
A white panelled front door opens into a lobby and reception hallway with stripped pine floorboards. To the right there is a large kitchen/breakfast room with green Shaker style kitchen cabinetry, wood block working surfaces, double ceramic bowl sink and integrated Siemens double ovens and five burner gas hob. The tiled floor extends into the dual aspect dining area including glazed double doors to the gardens. There are two further large reception rooms, both also have a pair of glazed double doors, the drawing room also has a wide bay window and original tiled fireplace along with oak floors. All the three principal rooms face south west over the garden ensuring the house attracts a great deal of natural light. Beyond the kitchen is a wonderful glazed garden room, again with oak floors.
An attractive oak staircase with twisted' oak spindles leads to a wide hallway, almost as wide as the property which is glazed to the front and has oak flooring. There are six bedrooms including three very large doubles, the master suite is dual aspect and has extensive fitted wardrobes and en suite bathroom comprising twin basins with recessed mirrored wall, bath and separate shower cubicle and tiled with buff marble. The large double on the second floor has two wide Velux skylights, stripped wooden floors and an oversized en suite bathroom with large shower cubicle which could make for an excellent guest suite or teenager's den. There are long reaching views from the back of the property overlooking the extensive gardens and beyond.
The property retains many fine features of the Arts & Crafts movement including Crittal windows, open fireplace and picture rails along with beautiful internal panelled doors. There is a gas fired central heating system and the property can be seen in greater detail on the attached floorplans.
Farmfield is set well back from Huntingdon Road and accessed via a gently sloping pea shingle driveway providing parking and turning for a number of cars and leads to a wide double garage. There are grassed areas either side of the driveway along with some superb tall mature trees including fir and holly along with blossoming shrubs.
The rear garden is fully enclosed. There is a deep and wide paved terrace with a large formal lawn with oval feature pond beyond. To the right boundary is a winding pea shingle pathway which leads to a seating and planting area, from here, via a garden arch is another deep lawn which has a number of specimen trees including a beautiful cedar tree with wide canopy, and a cluster of young silver birch. Beyond is the University North West development which will comprise cycle and pedestrian paths, University key worker and post graduate housing, further shops at Eddington, new homes and a GP surgery.
In all about 0.79 acres.
