Offered for sale with no ongoing chain an early inspection is strongly recommended.

Internally there is extensive accommodation that could be utilised in a number of different ways to suit the needs of the eventual purchaser. Notable features in the ground floor accommodation include the fantastic entrance hall, the generous room proportions and the significant flexibility that is afforded by virtue of four separate reception rooms in addition to a breakfast kitchen.

The external environment is an absolute delight with the overall acreage extending to 5.622 acres. The formal gardens have been beautifully cultivated and landscaped over a prolonged period so as to create a first class natural environment. There is also extensive off road parking, high quality outbuildings including double garage and stable block, an outdoor swimming pool and extensive patio and external seating areas. It should be noted that the paddock opposite gives Well House Farm a protected view over its own land.

EXTERIOR Well House Farm is set in gardens and grounds of 4.113 acres with an additional 1.509 acres opposite. The land opposite is particularly beneficial as it grants Well House Farm a protected view within its ownership.

Well House Farm is approached via a brick pillared gated entrance that secures a sweeping tarmacadamed driveway that is flanked by mature and beautifully stocked borders and a small area of lawn. The driveway widens as it approaches the house to form a turning circle area and also leads directly to the detached Double Garage.

The gardens and grounds to Well House Farm are a delightful feature of the property having been superbly designed and maintained and enjoying total seclusion and privacy throughout. Adjoining the house to the front, side, rear and back is open countryside. The predominant area of garden to the front is mainly laid to lawn and is bordered by beautifully stocked areas and has within it very attractive specimen trees. There is external security lighting in place and the lawn is interspersed with mature foliage.

Adjoining the house to the easterly side is a large Paddock. A lawn adjoins the east side of the house and sweeps round to the rear garden. The rear garden is a true delight being stocked with an abundance of flowering plants and further mature herbaceous borders and trees.

To the east is the aforementioned Paddock, whilst a covered pergola leads to an area that has been predominantly used as a lawned Tennis Court, alternatively it provides an extension to the formal garden. Within the rear garden there is also a large covered Swimming Pool that is surrounded by paving. Linking the garden to the house is an attractive Yorkstone Patio area. A further L-shaped Paddock adjoins the property to the westerly side and to the rear, whilst the gardens to the westerly side comprise a combination of lawn and well stocked vegetable patch. Near to the vegetable patch is a coal bunker.
 

THE PADDOCKS The Paddocks are securely fenced and within close proximity to the Stable Block, together with additional land opposite.
