Handsome & substantial country residence enjoying far reaching views.
Upper House Farm is an attractive country residence that was once a much smaller property but sympathetically extended in c.1980s to produce the substantial property that stands today. It offers generous and light accommodation across two main floors with a useful cellar area and loft room that offer the potential for conversion into further rooms (stp subject to planning). The layout of the property also lends itself to the possibility of separating part into a self-contained annexe area.
Accommodation Ground Floor
A welcoming front entrance porch with cloak room off leads into the large sitting room with vaulted ceiling with impressive A-frames, attractive stone walls, full height window flooding in natural light, gallery landing above and a stone fireplace with a wood burning stove providing a warm focal point. Steps on the left lead up to the family room again with a large multi-fuel burning stove. A door leads off to the smaller kitchen area. A secondary staircase leads up from the corner of the family room to Bedroom 3 above. This part of the house could be adapted into a self-contained annexe area if required. On the opposite side of the house beyond the main sitting room is the main kitchen breakfast room with fitted units, integrated hobs and ovens and views across the gardens. Adjacent is a generous utility room with door to outside. A door leads off the kitchen area to the light dining room with French doors to the garden.
The main staircase rises up from the central sitting room to the first floor accommodation. On the left is Bedroom 3 with its own dedicated bathroom suite adjacent. As mentioned above, a secondary staircase leads down from this room to the family room. Another staircase rises up from this room to the loft room on the second floor. Along the striking gallery landing overlooking the sitting room below, to the opposite side of the house are the remaining first floor rooms that include 3 further bedrooms, one enjoying its own en suite bathroom with separate shower while the remaining bedrooms share the use of family bathroom, again with separate shower.
As mentioned above a useful loft room on the second floor is accessed via a staircase from Bedroom 3.
Cellar/Lower Ground Floor
Accessed from outside, is a useful cellar area that could be utilised for a variety of purposes.
Outbuildings & The Land
The property is approached through a pretty gated entrance with stone pillars and down a sweeping drive flanked by mature trees and bushes and down to the spacious courtyard lying in front of the house. The grounds include landscaped garden areas with lawns, mature bushes, shrubs, trees and flower borders. On the courtyard is an attractive stone barn with loft over. This barn may have potential for conversion (stp). Adjacent is a modern triple open fronted garage that is also useful for storage etc. The majority of the land is located to the rear of the house and includes the old kitchen garden area, pasture paddocks (ideal for horses and livestock), areas of woodland and an old stable/livestock building. In all, the property is set in about 4.5 acres (stms subject to measured survey).
Option for further Land
There is an option to purchase further adjoining pastureland, about 14 acres (stms) and woodland (about 30 acres (stms) - price by separate negotiation.
