A stunning and substantial 19th century farmhouse with an award winning and superbly appointed interior which has been professionally designed and meticulously finished to a very high standard. The main house is a 5 bedroomed property and sits within about 1.47 ha of gardens and grounds and has 400m² of accommodation, combining the best of contemporary design and traditional features.
In 2006, the property featured in Wallpaper* magazine and it has also featured the the Sunday Times, Daily Telegraph, Conde Nast Traveller, El Deco in Spain, France and Japan, amongst many other publications.
Some of the walls are hung with custom made wallpaper by Eley Kishimoto, especially in the main hallway, and the main living area on the first floor has a massive central chimney with a double fronted fireplace and this huge room which extends to about 1600 sq ft is loosely divided up into living areas, reading/library areas with the most fantastic beamed roof structure. A real WOW factor!
No expense has been spared in the conversion of this property and this can be seen with the quality of the fittings, underfloor and normal central heating with a boiler which should be large enough to cope with some of the other barns if they were converted, and a superb kitchen ideally suited for entertaining.
There are three large stone buildings in the grounds, which could have potential to be converted into 2 and 3 bedroom dwellings and even an indoor pool, spa and cinema room in the large barn, subject to the normal planning consents.
The pool is heated by the boiler and is surrounded by restored stone walls which both protect it and give privacy.
The gardens and grounds extend to about 1.47 ha (3.63 acres) and this is a combination of a tree lined drive which leads up to the parking area by the house, lawns and gardens, approximately 70 plum trees which produce a good crop in August and September and also an area of land which the local farmer uses without paying any rent and the surrounding land grows generally sunflowers or wheat and barley depending on the year.
All in all, this is a quite superb property and viewings will be possible from April onwards and are highly recommended at this guide price which is priced to sell.
