Full description

GAYTON FARM stands within some 5 acres, peaceful, yet easily accessible in a small valley, and approached over a long private avenue of superb mature Lime trees. This main house is a home of considerable character with a wealth of old oak beams and exposed stone, yet it offers every modern convenience. In addition there are a pair of 2 bed stone cottages, currently let on shorthold tenancies, and a large garage/workshop block with a self contained flat over. There are pretty formal gardens, about 2 acres of lovely parkland with several mature trees and two large railed paddocks. Some may feel, at first glance, that a three bedroomed house is not large enough. However, with the option of a teenage or guest suite over the garage, or using one of the cottages there is ample scope to accommodate all!

THE MAIN HOUSE, a former granary, was virtually rebuilt by the vendors in 2000. It is of stone and elm clad elevations with bespoke hardwood windows and doors. The design was carefully considered to create an old and characterful feel, whilst combing modern convenience. Many of the original oak beams have been salvaged and used throughout the house and appear in every room. There is oil fired central heating and a 'Lutron' designer lighting system in many rooms. There is an impressive hall with flagged floor, fitted cloakroom, sitting room with corner fireplace, large dining room, 23ft family kitchen, utility and 3 large bedroom suites (one on the ground floor). The first floor bedrooms have mezzanines, including the outstanding master suite with a loft bathroom. Outside are very attractive cottage style gardens with patios to enjoy sun or shade.

THE GARAGE BLOCK WITH FLAT OVER A short distance from the house is a large detached garage block comprising a 3 bay open fronted garage, workshop/mower store, utility with w.c., and, at first floor a self contained studio flat with its own oil fired central heating. It has a kitchenette and full size bathroom with separate shower. This would make an ideal home office or an excellent teenage pad!

THE TWO COTTAGES In addition there are a pair of semi-detached stone cottages, the original farmhouse. Each has two bedrooms and both are currently let on shorthold tenancies, They were refurbished in 1989 but do now require some updating. There is also the possibility of obtaining consent for a single replacement dwelling. Offers would be considered for the cottages alone.

THE PARKLAND AND PASTURE PADDOCKS - in all the property stands in about 5 acres. About 2 acres of this is the tree lined entrance over a long avenue of mature Limes, planted by the vendors in 1989. The remainder is very attractive mown parkland and two railed paddocks, each with water troughs.

PLEASE NOTE offers would be considered for the main house, garage block and about 4 acres. Alternatively, for the cottages and the paddock in front about an acre.
