About this property

  • Curly Tail Farm is believed to date from the mid 19th century and the current owners since 2008 have totally restored, renovated and extended the house into a super family home, finished to a very high standard with an excellent blend of modern living and character features including exposed brickwork and oak beams. The property has been designed to provide a perfect space for entertaining. The spacious open plan kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke fitted kitchen units below solid wood and granite worktops and vaulted ceiling is just one of the many attractive features of the property. The kitchen opens to a cosy snug area with a double sided wood burner through to the dining room and both rooms connect to the vaulted sitting room with oak beams, a large wood burner and French doors leading out to a paved patio and the garden. The master bedroom is on the ground floor and has adjoining dressing room/nursery and separate en-suite shower room. Off the kitchen/breakfast room are a utility room, pantry, cloakroom and a plant room with gas fired boiler serving the heating systems in the main house and Piglet Barn and mega flow hot water system. We draw your attention to the floor plans for a full explanation as to how the accommodation is arranged.

    In the main house there is underfloor heating below reconstituted flagstone flooring throughout the ground floor and radiators on the first floor serving the four bedrooms and both en-suite bathrooms.

    The windows in all three properties are double glazed and there is a CCTV system and electric gates with a security video entry system to the main driveway. There is a monitored burglar alarm system and all three properties are connected to mains water and to a private treatment plant.

    The Piggery, the larger of the two barns, was converted in 2011 and has been finished to a very high standard. There is an impressive open plan kitchen/dining/living room with integrated appliances and double glazed doors leading out to a paved patio area and private garden. There is also a utility room where the gas fired boiler is located. The master bedroom enjoys an en-suite shower room and there are two further double bedrooms and a bathroom. The Piggery retains many original features throughout.

    This is the smaller of the two barns and was completely renovated in 2008. Piglet Barn retains many original features and comprises a large living/games room, guest bedroom/office and a kitchenette. Outside, there is a block patio and private lawned garden. Piglet Barn does not currently have planning permission to be run as a holiday let as it is solely ancillary to the main house.

    Curly Tail Farm is approached through remote controlled electric gates via a shingle driveway which widens to provide additional parking/turning space and leads to a two bay cart lodge. The garden to the main house is laid to lawn and enjoys south and westerly aspects from a large paved patio area. The Piggery and Piglet Barn have their own lawned gardens and there is a further garden area to the right of the driveway with established trees and a kitchen garden area with raised vegetable plots.

    A separate access point from Woodton Road leads through a five bar gate to a second shingled driveway serving The Piggery and Piglet Barn.

    The substantial garage/workshop (60'1” x 29' internal) is constructed of block walls with a roller shutter door, concrete floor, lighting, electricity and water supply, door to side.

    The land in all extends to about 1.04 acres.
