About this property

  • Court Close Farm, with origins dating back to 1650, has been renovated and extended to a very high standard, providing a family home of charm and character, with the benefit of a new 42ft contemporary kitchen/breakfast room extension. From the light entrance hall, with original flagstone floor and glazed door onto the courtyard garden, you enter the impressive kitchen/breakfast room. With sliding glass doors along one entire side, overlooking the pretty parterre garden, it has a limestone tiled floor with underfloor heating, fitted banquette seating, bespoke hand-painted cupboards and quartz worktops. It also benefits from a range of integrated appliances, including a double oven, induction hob and ‘Airforce' extractor, an American style fridge/freezer and dishwasher. A particularly imaginative feature are the ‘hidden' double doors to a walk-in pantry, with floor-to-ceiling fitted cabinet shelving on one wall, with a rolling library ladder enabling access to higher storage. The pantry also offers additional hand-painted cupboards with quartz worktop and also houses the alarm and CCTV control systems. The older parts of the house, boasting a wealth of original features, accommodate the drawing room, with fitted bookcases and fireplace with wood-burning stove, the dining room with large inglenook fireplace, housing a wood-burning stove and a glazed door onto the parterre garden and also the snug, all double-aspect rooms. Completing the ground floor is a newly fitted utility room with sink and fitted cupboards and a cloakroom with traditional high level WC.

    The re-configured upstairs comprises of the principal bedroom with fireplace and en suite shower room, three further bedrooms (one double aspect) and a family bathroom with ceramic tiled floor, roll-top bath and double-width ‘rain' shower.

    The house is approached from the lane via a five-bar gate, onto a large gravel driveway. The newly constructed timber-framed double garage, with clay tiled roof, has a separate workshop/storage behind. The gardens are part laid to lawn, banking up to traditional Cleft Post and Rail fencing bordering the paddock and barn (that are available under separate negotiation). The house itself wraps around a courtyard parterre garden, with gravel pathways, raised beds bordered by mature box hedging and bay tree topiary. A large terrace runs the length of the new extension.
