The Story

PEACE AND BEAUTY
While the stone-built house itself is very attractive, it was also the glorious setting that she found so appealing.
"It was the absolute peace of the place - it was close to the village and all its amenities yet surrounded by beautiful land, which was wonderful for trekking on horse-back or for walking," the current owner says. "You can go out for 10 miles or so from here without having to cross any roads."

HEART AND SOUL
In recent years Warren Farmhouse has been updated and upgraded in sympathy with its age. At the same time it has been given a careful contemporary edge, which sits well with its original features.
"I used heritage colours from companies such as the Little Greene Paint Company and kept lovely features, such as original flagstones, wherever I could," says Senga.
The dining room has solid oak flooring and original shutters while the kitchen has terracotta quarry tiles. The drawing room has a large inglenook fireplace, with an open fire.
"Then in the kitchen I have the Aga, which makes this room the heart and soul of the house," she adds. "When all my family come down from Scotland this becomes such a wonderful social area and everyone spills through into the dining room."

IDEAL ARRANGEMENT
Today the ground floor of the house has been arranged to include the kitchen breakfast room, dining room and hall, together with a fabulous utility and boot room area, which has an atrium and is excellent for equestrian enthusiasts or dog walkers.
The drawing room is at the other end of the house and features a spiral staircase down to a lower ground floor level, which could have all sorts of uses.
On the first floor of the house there are three bedrooms, two of which have en suite bathroom facilities. One of these is the master bedroom, which also has dressing space. Two more bedrooms, a family bathroom and another dressing room can be found on the floor above.
"The layout works well as I can give guests the top floor and they have their own space and privacy. But all the rooms here are lovely and every single window at the front of the house takes in the beautiful views," she says.

THE SETTING SUN
With so much space, Warren Farmhouse has been a truly magnificent family home, she points out.
"I have watched my children grow up here and enjoy the fabulous house and its incredible surroundings," she says. "This has also been a great place to have friends and family. When my son celebrated his 21st birthday recently we had about 40 people here but we have had up to 150 guests on occasion out in the garden."
She adds: "This is a fabulous place to have family celebrations but it is also a lovely home for just relaxing in. There is nothing I enjoy more than sitting quietly out in the courtyard at the back watching the sun set in the evening."

COUNTRY LIVING
The stables, tack room and 1.3 acre field have allowed the family to keep ponies and horses, which has given them great pleasure.
"My daughters loved being able to ride here and to hack straight out into Sherwood Forest," Senga says.
Warren Farmhouse is a perfect place to indulge in country living. There is space to grow vegetables or keep chickens, and yet it enjoys easy access to the A1 and M1 for those who need to travel too, and it takes just 25 minutes to drive into Nottingham.
"It is also lovely being part of a community like Mansfield," she says. "There are so many wonderful aspects to living here."

Setting The Scene

The formal gardens wrap around the house. There is a beautiful front lawn, with fruit trees, shrubberies and borders, and then at the side of the house a sunny terrace, which is perfect for al-fresco dining.
Warren Farmhouse is a perfect home for equestrian enthusiasts. Immediately outside the house there are four stables, together with a tack room and store room.
There is also additional garaging and a further room, which is currently enjoyed as a gym; this has a mezzanine level. There is a 1.3 acre field adjacent to the property.
