PERIOD FAMILY HOME WITH LAND AND INDOOR POOL COMPLEX .... Burnt House Farm is believed to be a 16th century farmhouse which has been carefully extended over the years while keeping many period features. On the ground floor there is a sitting room with triple aspect views, a cosy snug, study, dining room and a spacious kitchen breakfast room with an AGA and a utility room. Accessed from this level is the indoor leisure complex with swimming pool, changing rooms with a sauna and two games rooms above. Within the main house the three double bedrooms all have their own bathroom facilities and built in wardrobes and storage. Connected to the house is a row of three self contained, en suite double bedrooms which could potentially be used as a B & B income stream. The property sits within beautifully landscaped grounds thought to measure 5.2 acres. There are two fenced paddocks, a formal garden and an arboretum measuring 2.7acres. Within the very private gardens is a full sized tennis court. Throughout the plot there are established trees, mature planting and a large pond. In addition to the two garages and double carport is a sweeping driveway with off road parking for several cars.
