Full description

BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED, historic and characterful detached GRADE II Listed residence. 5 BEDROOMS, 3 bathrooms and AMAZING VIEWS. Reception hallway partially opens to kitchen and 3 RECEPTION rooms. Set in a total of almost 4 ACRES including stables and outbuildings. Potential to extend and improve further subject to gaining any necessary consents - ANNEX potential. Superb setting within a group of only 3 dwellings yet with private entrance and superb rural views.

Sanderson House Farm is discretely set off Sanderson Lane. Accessed via its own private driveway yet contained very privately within its own grounds adjacent to two other properties, this Grade II Listed residence has been professionally and sympathetically renovated and restored to bring the true character of the property back to life yet allowing this character and history to sit alongside some more modern conveniences.

The gravelled driveway passes initially along the side of the tree-lined grassland paddock and then leads into a gravelled parking area adjacent to the house. A separate section of this track leads around the buildings giving additional field access and the ability to drive right around and out again.
The approach to the house is stunning. Part of the house was originally built in 1540 and later extended, renovated and partially gentrified in 1760. Originally Sanderson House Farm was a grain intervention centre and wheat was brought here on the way through to the Harrock Hill Windmill and also again on the way back.

The large oak door, whilst newly constructed, fits the house perfectly. It opens into the Reception Hallway which is currently being used as a dining room and within which features abound. There are recessed candle holders, a half-timbered wall, stone flooring and feature fireplace as well as the additional benefit of underfloor heating. A door leads from the side into the garden and the room is also opened into the Kitchen with further stone flooring and a cream kitchen (including a large larder cupboard) with granite work tops and a variety of appliances including a large fridge freezer and twin ovens. The views over the west are fantastic.

There are two main reception rooms, firstly the Snug/Family Room with bench window seat, back staircase access and stone feature fireplace with wood burner along with further candle reveals and secondly the larger Living Room with feature fireplace with multi-fuel burner and door leading off to the hallway. The Playroom/Study gives the third reception space and from a more functional point of view there is the Boot Room with access through to the Cloaks with w.c. and basin as well as the Utility Room with Belfast Sink, washer and dryer, large storage cupboard and shelving as well as housing the hot water cylinder.

To the top floors can be found 5 bedrooms off the landing with its tremendous vaulted ceiling with visible timbers. There is access from the landing to a storage cupboard and shelving.
The bedrooms are all double in nature. It is the Master Bedroom that benefits from the main features including vaulted ceilings, Juliet balcony, amazing views and a feature fireplace in stone with original doors and clear views of the cruk frame. The master bedroom has a separate Dressing Room with its own view and an En-Suite shower room.

Bedroom 2 has an En-Suite shower room, Bedroom 3 has its own Dressing Room and vanity basin whilst Bedroom 4 (first floor) and Bedroom 5 (top floor) make use of the Family Bathroom with free standing bath, w.c, large shower and vanity basin. Bedroom 5 on the top floor has access through to the Loft which gives further potential in the future.

Externally the pretty grounds are true to the rustic nature of this property. They incorporate two separate orchards, a wildlife pond and wood copse along with several buildings. The surrounding gardens include a variety of lawns, beds and stone flagged patio. They combine to give lovely views not only of the surrounding countryside but also Sanderson House Farm itself.

The large detached Garage is a 3 car garage with 2 separate doors, concrete floor and split levels. Of stone under slate construction this would have superb potential to create annexed accommodation subject to gaining any necessary consents.

The second building has a concrete floor and has previously been used as two stables as well as ancillary storage. The stable divider has been removed at present but could easily be reinstated.
The remaining buildings with timber frame construction provide a variety of storage/workshop options.

Services: The property has oil fired central heating, mains electric, waters and drainage.
