A residential farm perfect for the outdoor lifestyle.
Norman Farm is situated on the edge of the village of Burghclere in a popular part of north Hampshire. The surrounding countryside offers fantastic opportunities for walking and riding along the many footpaths and bridleways. Burghclere itself has an active village and offers good local facilities including a primary school, public house and church. The nearby market town of Newbury provides an extensive range of shopping and leisure facilities, including Newbury racecourse, the Watermill Theatre and a number of good restaurants. Highclere Castle and the renowned Sandham Memorial Chapel are also nearby. Road and rail communications are excellent with easy access to the A34, M4 (J13) and M3 (J6) all linking with the national road network, and trains from Whitchurch into London Waterloo or from Newbury into London Paddington. There is a wide range of schools in the area, including Cheam, Farleigh, Horris Hill, Downe House, Radley College and Marlborough College.
Norman Farm is a Grade II listed classic Berkshire farmhouse which has been given a contemporary twist by the owners. It has been fully renovated and has been designed for a family who enjoy an active, outdoor lifestyle. The classic features and modern extensions give a wonderful juxtaposition and create a unique house, full of character which is fun to live in and makes the most of the wonderful west-facing setting and views over the land. There is planning permission for a two storey extension to create two additional bedrooms and increase the size of the drawing room.
Outside there are traditional buildings comprising a two storey, timber clad games room with w/c, workshop, single story timber frame barn and four bay garage block. Two barns to the south have planning permission for conversion into two dwellings. Barn A has two bedrooms and Barn B has three bedrooms. Once converted they would form delightful barn conversions and have a separate access to Norman Farm.
Immediately to the west of the farmhouse is a large decked area
which surrounds the swimming pool and jacuzzi. There are two
areas for outdoor dining, as well as a brick pizza oven. The decked area leads down to lawned gardens, the tennis court
and onto a vegetable and flower garden with raised beds.
The farmland, extending to about 80.66 acres is attractive gently undulating grassland. In addition there are about 62 acres of woodland. The land is currently farmed by a local farmer and provides the perfect playground for the farmhouse. There are a number of ponds on the and as well as spinneys and larger
blocks of woodland which form the basis for an exciting shoot.
The land is picturesque and interspersed by mature hedges.
The current owners with the assistance of a gamekeeper run
a shoot on the land with 4 or 5, 100-150 bird days a year.
The shoot is mainly run for the family but they do currently
let one day a year. Please see the shoot plan for the location
of the different drives.
