Description

Weeford House Farm is believed to date back to the 1600s and has been extended over the years with the current owners enhancing and updating the property over the last 18 years. It also benefits from a separate detached barn offering further accommodation and beautiful landscaped gardens including terraces, ornamental Koi Carp pond, bog garden, productive vegetable patch, orchard and large natural stocked pool.
Entry to the property is gained via electric gates into a large gravelled drive with parking for several vehicles. The accommodation is set over four floors and offers a combination of elegant rooms suitable for modern day living, whilst retaining the property's period charm.

The principal reception rooms lead off a large central hallway with mixed slate and under floor heating. The sitting room overlooks the front of the property and features a brick inglenook fireplace with multi fuel stove and exposed beams on the ceiling. The family room has a large sandstone fireplace and is complimented by large windows allowing light from three aspects, all overlooking the rear of the property and French doors to a decked patio area. An area suitable for an office/games room adjoins the family room and leads back to the hallway. The House boasts a beautiful conservatory incorporating self cleaning glass with vistas over the orchard and water garden and two sets of double doors to the garden. The dining room also has an impressive inglenook fireplace and history as it is believed to have incorporated a priest's escape hole to the cellar and outside. Access to wine cellars is reached from the hallway.

The large family kitchen connects to the dining room and was custom designed by Miele to provide the much demanded balance of catering, dining and sitting space. It is a modern room with an oil Aga providing an element of tradition. Wall and base units are made from a combination of sweetgum and mocca glass and have a silestone work surface incorporating integrated Miele appliances. To the rear of the kitchen is a less formal dining area with bifold doors giving access to outside dining and entertaining areas.

The first floor has a fine master bedroom suite including an outside covered balcony area with heating which overlooks the gardens, a separate walk in wardrobe and an impressive ensuite including a walk in waterfall shower and roll top bath.
