Description

Hunters Valley Farm was built some seven or so years ago to the
exacting standards of the current owner. The property was designed and constructed to a vernacular design and offers a very high specification finish throughout which includes under floor heating to the principal house provided from a ground source heat pump with pressurised hot water throughout. The property is sited to take full advantage of its glorious setting with a private double gated entrance leading to the substantial front courtyard alongside the five car garage block and stable courtyard. There is a stunning reception hall with a bespoke handmade sweeping staircase leading up to the galleried first floor landing. The principal reception rooms are set off the hallway with a very fine main drawing room, lovely sitting room and a large family room set to the rear of the house with direct access out to the terrace and gardens beyond.

The heart of the house is the very fine living breakfast kitchen, designed by Osborne's of Ilkeston, L-shaped, with exposed oak beams, a high specification kitchen and dining area, separate living space and a ceiling hung free floating cast iron wood burning stove. A dining room set to the front of the property completes for the formal accommodation with a separate adjoining porch, utility and boot room.

To the first floor is the superb galleried landing which leads onto a large master bedroom with open views and a balcony, fully fitted high quality en suite bath and shower room with a separate walk in wardrobe. There are 4 further bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms and a well fitted family bathroom. The sanitary ware is by Villeroy and Boch. In addition a concealed staircase leads up to the useful second floor attic storage area.

There is a covered courtyard area at the side of the property which links through to the adjoining annexe providing further living accommodation over two floors with a useful sitting room, fully fitted kitchen and bedroom with separate bathroom.

There are a range of stables with Monarch doors leading through to the rear stable courtyard and a separate detached vernacular style garaging block, currently arranged as two double garages and a separate store room/workshop. In addition is a large five bay steel framed barn with high eaves height and a further three Monarch American style stables.

The property has a lovely approach through remote controlled gates leading through to further ornate carved oak gates which give on to the main courtyard area. There are paved terrace areas around the house and lovely open views all around the property.

The finish and fittings throughout the property are to the very highest standards with exposed oak beams and woodwork to some of the principal reception and bedroom areas. The under floor heating (by a ground source heat pump) which sits throughout the property is controlled from the discreet plant room set adjoining the main kitchen and living space. The annexe has independent electric heating.
