Hunters Pool Farm is an impressive Grade II listed four storey farmhouse in a superb setting within a rural enclave of three other properties.
Grade II listed Hunters Pool Farm is a four storey Georgian farmhouse with 17th Century origins and is an impressive building with its elevated setting and Kerridge stone roof.
The property was comprehensively upgraded in the late 1990's and provides a spacious family country home which is both comfortable and not isolated. In many ways the sale provides the opportunity to upgrade to a more contemporary style with the original restoration including top quality fittings and finishes.
There is extant planning permission for a detached double garage in the grounds below the house, so this can be erected at any time although the driveway leads through to a extensive private parking area to the front of the house.
The large oak framed porch to the front of the house has an oak door leading through to the limed oak fitted kitchen with granite surfaces and a four oven AGA. There are a range of Gaggenau appliances including a rising extractor alongside a teppanyaki grill, a steamer, induction hob, a dishwasher and space for integrated fridge and freezer. A Corian topped island features a sink.
An oak framed screen divides the kitchen area from the triple aspect morning room area with a dresser unit, an oak outside door to the rear terrace and a spiral staircase leading up to the first floor office/study.
A dining hall lies to the front with wide oak board flooring and an oak staircase leading up to the first floor and down to the lower ground floor playroom. The main lounge lies off the hall and extends into an oak framed sun lounge area with terrific views to the rear to woodland. Oak French doors open to the south facing semi circular side terrace. A recently fitted wood burning stove stands in a brick fireplace with an oak mantle and wide oak board flooring extends throughout.
The beamed sitting room or formal dining room also has wide oak boards, a living flame gas fire and French doors opening to a conservatory with slate flooring, a glazed roof and double French doors opening to an alfresco dining terrace.
A rear hall has two sets of French doors to the dining terrace and a separate access door from the front providing the scope for creating an independent ground floor living space. Amtico floors extend through this area which includes a cloakroom/bathroom with a cast iron spa bath and a separate shower. A cloaks cupboard lies off the hall and there is a kitchen/laundry room with Corian surfaces over base cupboards and wall cupboards with an adjoining butlers pantry/boiler room. The vaulted bed/sitting room doubles as a games room with two Velux windows and windows to the rear.
The oak staircase leads down from the hall past a cupboard housing the centralised vacuum cleaning unit to a multi-purpose room on the lower ground floor. With windows to the rear this room is currently a playroom but would equally well serve as a cinema room or home office.
On the first floor there is a half landing on the staircase with a window to the rear with main landing giving access to the three large principal bedrooms, two of which have en suite bathrooms. The primary bedroom features a dual aspect and a range of fitted wardrobes, cupboards and a dressing table with a large en suite bathroom including a spa bath and a separate shower.
The guest bedroom has twin Velux windows and a fitted dressing room also giving access to the study/office with the spiral staircase down to the morning room. The en suite bathroom has a corner spa bath and separate shower.
The second bedroom has an ornamental Georgian fireplace, a dual aspect and a beamed ceiling. This bedroomed is served by the house bathroom with a spa bath with an over bath shower and access to a large under-eaves box room for storage.
The staircase continues to the second floor landing off which are three further rooms with scope to create a marvellous principal bedroom suite and currently includes a bedroom with a dual aspect and vaulted ceiling and a vaulted dressing room and a part completed en suite bathroom with plumbing and scope for a separate shower area. Our clients simply did not need the additional space and abandoned the project.
The gardens extend to about half an acre in total and include flagged terrace areas. Mainly sloping there are well stocked flower beds and shrubberies and with access from the lane, extant planning permission to build a double garage. The driveway currently is shared by the farmhouse and the new build property to the south but may ultimately only serve the farmhouse.
Please note: The sewerage system is new and compliant and is shared with the barn to the north. The gas supply is a sub supply and metered to the house individually. This may be upgraded in future. There is mains electricity and water. Broadband is connected.
