The House

Home Farm is a most appealing victorian farmhouse which has been magnificently upgraded and restored into a splendid family home. The house is constructed of stone elevations under a clay tiled roof and was built at the turn of the 19th century. The property has undergone substantial modernisation and improvement and offers spacious and well planned accommodation arranged over three floors.

On the ground floor is an entrance hall with stairs to the first floor and a fine flagstone floor. There are two reception rooms to the front of the house each having open fireplaces, one with a modern wood burning stove, both have attractive slate mantles and surrounds.

The second reception can also be accessed off the stunning open plan kitchen/dining/family area through double doors. This most flexible space incorporates a bespoke handmade kitchen which has been wonderfully designed to include integrated modern appliances and an Aga. The floor is of limestone tiles and the dining area enjoys attractive views over the garden through full length windows and doors which provide access to the outside. To the rear of the property there is a boot room, utility room and a playroom. Also on the ground floor and of particular note is an excellent family room, a stunning room of generous proportions, tiled floors and doors that lead out to the gardens to the rear and courtyard to the front.

Home Farm offers six double bedrooms with both the principal and guest bedroom having en-suite bathrooms. There is a further bathroom on the first floor and one on the second floor. All the bathrooms have been refitted with classic white suites. There are two further rooms on the first floor which offer spacious and light accommodation. They are currently used as offices however they offer a great deal of versatility.


Around an impressive courtyard are ranges of attractive period farm buildings. The 2 storey former coach house previously had planning permission for use as an annex comprising 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor and a large open plan kitchen, dining sitting room on the ground floor. This has now been converted at ground floor level into the family room.

The property is approached through a five bar gate and over a long tree lined gravel avenue ending with a turning circle and ample parking. There are formal walled gardens to the front and sides of the house. In total the property has approximately 9.4 acres of gardens and paddocks that surround the house.
