About this property

  • Believed to date from the early 1950s, Little Farm is a detached family home, ideally situated in a semi-rural location down a long private driveway shared with just three other properties. The current owner has lived at the property for over 45 years and it is clearly a much loved home, now offering an excellent opportunity for updating and for the next owners to put their stamp on it.

    The house has a generous footprint of light and spacious accommodation arranged over two floors, extending to nearly 3,000 square feet. The ground floor rooms lie off a spacious entrance hall with a cloakroom and deep coats cupboard; overlooking the rear garden is a dining room and a study with a door opening to the terrace. The light and bright sitting room is of particular note, having two sets of glazed sliding doors opening to the south-facing terrace and garden, and featuring an exposed stone wall set with a woodburner.

    The kitchen is fitted with a range of hand-built pine units with a brick island, granite worktops and tiled splashbacks; appliances include a Rosieres range oven, integrated Bosch dishwasher and space for a larder-style fridge/freezer. The kitchen is partially divided from the breakfast room by a brick chimney column and charming Art Nouveau-style multi-fuel stove; there is ample space for a table and seating area. Lying off the kitchen is a utility room, also fitted with pine units and with space for laundry appliances.

    The bedrooms on the first floor are all positioned on the southern and western side of the house, making the most of the lovely views over the garden and countryside beyond. The master bedroom is dual aspect, and has a range of fitted cupboards, one concealing a dressing room with basin and good potential for conversion into an en suite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms, all of which have fitted storage, a fully-tiled wet room and a family bathroom.

    Little Farm is approached via a private driveway, which winds through an area of light woodland up to a parking area directly ahead of the house. The detached barn-style garage lies across from the house, with three pairs of double doors and a substantial vaulted roof space offering potential for conversion, subject to the necessary consents.

    The rear garden is south facing and is bound by neat hedging. A large paved terrace extends around the house offering an ideal space for dining al fresco and enjoying the outlook over the garden; from the terrace steps rise to an expanse of lawn. A footpath leads down the eastern boundary to a hedge-enclosed orchard and kitchen garden, planted with a number of apple trees and two cherries. From here there is gated access to a further detached period barn, the ground floor of which is used as a workshop and machinery store; an external flight of stairs rises to a large first floor office space.

    In all, about 0.9 of an acre.
