Brick Kiln Farm is a remarkable detached country residence, beautifully decorated and finished, yet keeping the former charm of its Victorian origins. The main house has a very versatile layout with a family room and an attached self contained Two bedroom Annexe which has a separate rear porch entrance, making it perfect for the extended family, returning teenagers or maybe even a holiday let.

The real heart of this home is the amazing double aspect kitchen/breakfast room fully fitted with the traditional Aga, plus a conventional oven and hob, and also a feature island so that you can engage with family and guests while cooking. There is room for a good sized farmhouse dining table in front of the doors opening onto the spacious south facing terrace, which provides amazing views over the rolling fields to the distant hills. In fact the house has been designed with these stunning views in mind, so as you explore the house you have the same southerly views from the formal dining room, sun lounge, family room and all of the bedrooms. All of these rooms are south facing, so are light and bright, and offer an ever changing backdrop to enhance your lifestyle. The bathrooms have all been recently remodelled to an exceptional standard and feature underfloor heating. The drawing room is warm and inviting and has an inglenook fireplace perfect for crackling logs on those chilly days! 

ENTRANCE PORCH A recent addition, made from green oak and double glazed with storage space for logs and boots and shoes. 

ENTRANCE HALL Good sized reception hallway leading to the main house.

KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM A great family sized room with a range of traditional fitted units and a feature island to make cooking a pleasure with views out to the fields beyond. Marble work surfaces gleam, plus you not only have an Aga cooker, but a conventional oven and hob too. There is room for a large farmhouse table to be placed in front of the opening doors to the south facing terrace where you can imagine enjoying your coffee bathed in sunlight and taking in the early morning views.
