The Property
Aldon Farmhouse was built in the early 1900's with local Ham Stone and rendered elevations under a tiled pitched roof. Since the original build, the property has been enlarged with a two storey extension in the 1980's and most recently an added utility room completed in the early 2000's. The current owners, having lived there approximately 10 years, have beautifully maintained the property which is clear as soon as you step inside.

The ground floor is entered via an attractive front porch leading into the triple aspect sitting room with the most delightful bay window and a lovely feature fireplace with wood burning stove. Having been the original kitchen, this room has two separate alcoves of which would have been larders. These make a lovely feature ideal for ornaments or could be converted to extra storage. A partly glazed door leads through to the inner hallway with stairs and under cupboard. From here the kitchen is entered. The kitchen has double glazed windows with rear aspect overlooking neighbouring fields and paddocks. It comprises both wall and base units with Crystal Granite worktops, an AEG electric double oven with NEFF gas hob and cooker hood, a built in fridge and the gas central heating boiler. This in turn gives access into the generously size breakfast room with wall and base units and double glazed window with front aspect. This room being the hub of the home, has many uses as a day room, for dining and use as a study. The breakfast room leads to both the formal dining room with front aspect or the separate utility room with base units with worktops and a single sink and drainer. From here a wooden stable door gives another access to the front drive and side garden.

The first floor landing leads to all four bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom is a generous size with ample built in storage with hanging rails and shelving whilst the second bedroom has a separate en-suite shower room. All bedrooms are carpeted and have double glazed windows overlooking the wonderful setting. The family bathroom having been recently modernised offers a bath with electric Mira shower over. The hot water tank is housed in the storage cupboard along with extra shelving.

The property is accessed via a privately owned track of which Aldon Farmhouse has right of way. At the front of the house is a generous gravelled parking and turning area leading to the detached garage with up and over door. The property can be fully accessed from all sides but the gardens are principally set at both ends with various fruit trees, mature hedging, shrubbery and mostly set to lawn. The surroundings are neighbouring properties fields and paddocks really adding to the feel of rural living yet not being isolated.
