Description
Yew Tree Farm is an outstanding family home with origins dating back to 1596. In recent years the current owners have extended the property maintaining the charm and character feel throughout. This has been carefully combined with contemporary features to create a superb family home ideal for easy everyday living with fabulous space for entertaining. The kitchen/breakfast room is at the heart of the house and has a particularly welcoming feel with attractive stone floors. The main kitchen area is in a country style with wall mounted units and attractive work tops, there is a large Aga with extra module. From the kitchen/breakfast room are steps down to a family area which at the heart of it has a 100ft flood lit well with reinforced glass top. The sitting room in the original part of the property is well proportioned with a large fireplace and herringbone wood floor. There is also a rather attractive dining room with an inglenook fireplace, again with an old range and herringbone floor, providing a character feel. In keeping with the history of this part of the property, this wing has three bedrooms including a principal suite with a bedroom and ensuite bathroom. In the bedroom is some delightful timber work on both ceiling and walls. The second bedroom on this side of the property also has ensuite facilities, and again oozes character. Other notable features relating to the accommodation include a splendid reception hall with stone floor and under-floor heating, with a view straight through to the rear gardens and fields beyond. From the principal hall access can be made to the other areas of the house on the ground floor which provide further reception space, including another sitting room with herringbone floor and stove fireplace, and through to a second dining room. Out of this second dining room there is a staircase to first floor level which gives access to a truly remarkable entertainment area comprising a games/snooker room and a bar area. There is at this end of the house two further suites, both of which are very impressive, the master suite includes the main bedroom with doors to the balcony, a dressing room and separate ensuite bathroom. The overall feel of this house is one of great space, great character and attention to details.

Annexe
From the second dining room a door can be closed to shut off part of the house which can be used as a separate annexe and would comprise kitchen with sink and cooker, sitting room, bedroom and its own bathroom.

Outside
Yew Tree Farm is well set back in its grounds and there is a large driveway which provides ample parking and turning space for vehicles, and also access to the garages. The principal gardens are south facing and lie to the rear of the property. The rear terrace which runs along the back of the property provides a superb area for outdoor entertaining, and there is a heated swimming pool. The gardens from the terrace are a real picture and, whilst they are principally laid to lawn, they have been attractively planted with a wide variety of trees giving a good degree of interest throughout the year. The grounds are divided into four main areas. There is the main garden section and then there are 3 paddocks, one of which includes an orchard which provide some super pasture for those looking to own any grazing animals including horses. There are outbuildings including new and well specified stables.
