Full description

A substantial detached farmhouse, offering spacious SIX double bedroom family accommodation with the added benefit of gardens, stable block, ménage and 3 ½ acres land.

This superb home has been significantly improved by the present owners, offering considerable living space ideal for the growing family and for entertaining.

The open plan living accommodation is designed for family life, with the dining kitchen being the heart of the home. The kitchen is fitted with a range of cream units with Rangemaster fridge freezer (negotiable), range cooker with six ring gas hob (negotiable) and integrated dishwasher. There are two fireplaces, both fitted with wood-burning stoves, beams to the ceiling and an Indian slate floor which extends through to the utility room. The utility room is large, again fitted with a range of units with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a dryer, and access out to the garden. The huge living room has a stone fireplace with a gas stove and is open through to the conservatory, which enjoys superb open views and extends across the rear of the property, also open through to the kitchen. From the living room is access to a guest bedroom, with sizable en-suite shower room. 

Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom has a range of wardrobes and enjoys the open views across the Valley, with a contemporary en-suite bathroom with bath, walk in shower area, pedestal wash hand basin and WC. The house bathroom is large, with a four-piece suite comprising a roll-top bath, double shower cubicle with rain head shower, pedestal wash hand basin and WC. From the landing there is access to a galleried mezzanine level, providing a useful study space with exposed beams and roof trusses, and a Velux window. An additional staircase on the first floor gives independent access to a sixth double bedroom. 

Recent improvements to the property include a new boiler fitted in 2014, electrical consumer unit and extensive re-wiring, new UPVC windows in the master bedroom, cloakroom and utility room and new kitchen and master en-suite / house bathrooms. 

The property stands in a good sized plot with stable block, ménage and land and garden totaling 3 ½ acres. There is off road parking and a double garage to the front of the property, and a level lawn garden to the rear accessed from the conservatory. A driveway leads down to the stable block, ménage and land, where there is also a timber deck enjoying the superb open views across the valley.
