Property Description

LOWER FARM was originally a timber framed farmhouse which has been sympathetically and stylishly extended in recent years. The house now offers the charming character features of the old, combined with the practicality of the new, including the extremely spacious kitchen/breakfast room with master bedroom suite above.

Accommodation comprises an entrance hallway with solid wood staircase to the first floor and opens to the rear boot room with adjacent cloakroom and utility room. The superbly appointed kitchen has views to 3 sides with French doors leading out to the dining terrace and is fitted with an excellent range of wall and base units with a central island and granite worktops with integrated Neff electric oven and hob and a full sized Aga. There is a built-in microwave and an integrated John Lewis dishwasher, with space for an American style fridge-freezer. The utility room is extremely well designed and equipped with an AEG tumble-dryer, Miele washing machine and base storage units incorporate a drinks fridge and freezer.

The original farmhouse section of the house provides a 20ft dining room with inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove with tiled hearth. A door leads to the original entrance lobby and porch area and through to the extremely spacious L-shaped sitting room with inglenook fireplace housing a modern wood burning stove with a brick hearth. The far end of the room leads to a cosy snug/TV area. Adjacent is a study and a staircase leads to the first floor from the sitting room area.

The first floor to the original part of the farmhouse comprises 3 large bedrooms, with a spacious family bathroom with bath and separate shower and the middle bedroom has an en suite shower room with Jack & Jill door. The modern section of the first floor provides a superb master bedroom suite with Juliet balcony overlooking the rear gardens, a 6' 8" dressing room and an en suite bathroom fitted with a 4-piece suite. Bedroom 5 is located adjacent to the spacious landing area and has fitted wardrobes.

OUTSIDE, a sweeping circular gravelled driveway provides a large parking and turning area and leads to the double cartlodge (21' 1" x 19' 6") and garage (13' 7" x 10' 1") with a further loft store area above. To either sides of the cartlodge there is both a log store and bin store.

The principal gardens are beautifully designed with various seating areas to enjoy, particularly the outdoor swimming pool area which is equipped with a raised terrace with built-in BBQ and recessed floor lighting. The detached pool house/one bedroom annexe has bi-folding doors to both sides and is superbly designed with vaulted ceilings throughout. There is a kitchen area with a range of wall and base units with wooden worktops and breakfast bar area and is equipped with a small fridge and integrated Bosch dishwasher. There is an adjacent well appointed shower room and a double bedroom with twin aspect and field views. The separate pump room is located to the side and measures 12' 9" x 6' 5".

A large games room/gym is located adjacent to the pond and is approached via an attractive decked terrace/seating area.

The principal gardens offer a rose-lined walkway, a large expanse of lawn with well stocked floral borders and mature trees. At the far end of the lawns is a fully enclosed tennis court and beyond this area lies an expansive enclosed vegetable garden with raised vegetable beds and a greenhouse. A small orchard area is located to the rear of the cartlodge.
