**Guide Price £2,000,000 - £2,200,000**
A beautifully situated small country estate of 93.5 acres, privately set down a long drive. A well-presented Grade II Listed period house, part-converted stone outbuilding with potential for cottage (subject to planning consent), further brick and stone barn, stables, farm buildings, garden and grounds.

Rette Farm comprises a well-presented Grade II Listed farmhouse, sympathetically extended over the years to form an excellent and very comfortable family home. The elevations are stone and brick, half tile hung beneath a tiled roof. The interior has retained many fine period features including inglenook fireplaces and exposed timbering. There is an oil-fired central heating system.

SPECIAL NOTE: There are no footpaths or rights of way crossing the land.

The main features are:

Front door to the reception hall with galleried landing.

Delightful drawing room with inglenook fireplace, vaulted ceiling at one end and door to the garden.
The dining room has a wide stone inglenook fireplace, timbered floor, second brick fireplace and door to the garden. Trap door to the cellar, which is also accessed from the garden. Study with fitted oak furniture.

The kitchen/breakfast room has in recent years been refitted and re-designed and has a door opening onto the south-facing terrace. The adjacent sitting room has a stone fireplace with wood burner, bookshelves and full length timber doors to the garden.

The first floor has a wonderful, timbered galleried landing and the principal bedroom has a dressing room and bathroom with both a bath and shower.

Five further bedrooms, one with en suite cloakroom, two with period fireplaces, ample cupboard space and separate family bathroom.
The second floor rises to bedroom 7.

Excellent high stone wall enclosed heated swimming pool incorporating the substantial brick and tile garden/play room, all of which provides an excellent entertaining area.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS
Rette Farm is situated at the end of a 650 yard private driveway. The grounds form a very appropriate and established setting with sweeping gravelled driveway and ample parking space, extensive level lawn, area of orchard and a variety of trees and shrubs.

To the south of the house there is a paved terrace and pathway with brick retaining wall, further areas of lawn, herbaceous border and summer house.

The wonderful stone-wall enclosed heated swimming pool is very sheltered and has extensive paved areas for sunbathing and incorporates a stone-built garden/play room 26'5 x 15'10 with separate pool room. There is also a hard tennis court and a productive, fence-enclosed kitchen garden.

THE FARM BUILDINGS
Attractive traditional stone and tile single storey outbuilding 29'1 x 15'8, partly converted to form a machinery store/workshop and cloakroom (it is considered this building could be converted into an excellent annexe cottage, subject to relevant planning consent).

The principal farm buildings are of mixed ages and construction. One section is stone and tile, and formed into three loose boxes with other storage areas, the remainder being original pole barns clad with corrugated iron and currently used for cattle, hay and machinery storage. The total area is about 6,250 square feet.

THE FARMLAND
There are about 15 acres of mixed woodland, 9.3 acres of which was planted in 1997, with the remainder being hedge-enclosed pasture fields with sheep-proof fencing and water connected.

In addition there is an attractive and secluded pond.

In all about 93.5 acres.
