Highgate Farmhouse is a substantial detached stone farmhouse believed to date from 1672 with accommodation over three floors plus a small cellar area. The current owners have undertaken a huge renovation and refurbishment of the property which now combines beautiful and stylish accommodation with a contemporary feel.
The heart of the house is the large farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room with cream five door Aga. From here a stone flagged hallway with built in wine bins leads to the three reception rooms, all with woodburner or working fireplace. Also off the hallway are the useful prep kitchen, large laundry room and boot room.
On the first floor are three good sized bedrooms, plus a beautifully appointed family bathroom. There is also a shower room with separate w.c. and dressing area, which can be accessed off a bedroom or the landing. The other bedroom on this floor has an en suite dressing room. On the second floor are two attic style bedrooms. A further bedroom and bathroom suite is approached at the far end of the house and may be ideal for guests or staff.
Outside a former barn has been converted into a bar and games room on the ground floor, and with separate first floor access, an office.
The mainly walled gardens lie to one side of the house with shrub borders, and a large terrace between the kitchen and office. The stable block with two stables, tack room and hay/open store lies within the paddocks to the front of the house and can be seen from the property. There is ample parking to the front and side. In total believed to be approximately three acres.
Agents Note: This property may be referred to locally and by the vendors as Highgate Manor.
The property is situated outside of the village of Elkstone, approached down a long and imposing drive, leading to this house and three other barn properties awaiting conversion into residential units. The area is surrounded by lovely countryside. In addition to the beautiful surroundings, one of the major attractions of the area is the accessibility to other major centres, such as Cheltenham and Cirencester, and the access to magnificent countryside as well as good road links to the M5, A40/M40 and the A417 and M4. Cheltenham is situated about seven miles away and offers a wide range of facilities for everyday living with many shops, restaurants and bars as well as a good selection of excellent schools including Cheltenham Ladies’ College, Cheltenham College (co-ed), St Edward’s and Dean Close. The town is also well known for the many literary and music festivals that it holds as well as the cricket and national hunt festivals, including the Gold Cup meeting in the spring. Cirencester lies about 8 miles to the south, accessed by the A417.
It should be noted that the property lies not far from the A417 and the road can be heard from the paddocks and gardens.
