    About this property

    • Set in a rural location on a country lane, Shelleys Farm is an extremely well presented detached house, characterised by brick and tile-hung elevations under a tiled roof. The property is situated adjacent to pastureland, and has an attractive outlook across the surrounding landscape.

      The accommodation extends to over 2,400 square feet and is arranged over three floors. The décor is neutral throughout, and there is tiled flooring to the ground floor, with hydronic underfloor heating, and wood-effect Karndean flooring to the first and second floors. All bathrooms have stylish contemporary fittings, and the family bathroom is wired for sound.

      Shelleys Farm is well suited to family life, with a lovely double aspect drawing room, which is open to the west facing conservatory, a separate study which is spacious enough to be used as a further reception room, and an open plan kitchen/dining room with a good range of cream cabinets and wooden countertops. The utility room, cloakroom and side entrance complete the ground floor.

      The first floor guest bedroom has an en suite dressing area and shower room. There are two further bedrooms, one with a balcony looking out over the rear garden, and a family bathroom which is wired for sound situated on the first floor.

      The second floor master bedroom has an open plan dressing and bathroom with bath, separate shower, basin and WC. There is a further good-sized bedroom on the second floor.

      Please refer to the floor plan for a comprehensive overview of the accommodation.

      Shelleys Farm is approached via a short tarmac drive leading to an electronically operated five bar gate, which opens to the gravelled parking area ahead of the house the garaging. The timber-framed open bay double garage has a secure workshop, and a first floor office/storage space with power and water connected. There is a wood store and a timber storage shed.

      The house is set back towards the rear of its plot, which extends to about a third of an acre. A paved path leads around the house to the decked terrace, which has space for table and chairs and is accessed from the conservatory and the kitchen. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, and is fully enclosed with post and rail fencing and hedging at the boundary.

    This is a fabulous family house and I really like the location - great views from the decked terrace.
