The Farmhouse

East Forde farmhouse is Listed Grade II and dates from the late 17th/early 18th Centuries with possibly an earlier core. Recently re-thatched and decorated throughout with Farrow & Ball conservation colours, it also benefits from a centralised vacuum system which runs throughout the building.

Flag stoned entrance lobby and utility room with butler sink and extensive cupboards in the plain English style. New energy efficient condensing oil-fired central heating boiler with ample under cupboard space for utilities.

Large open plan, oak floored farmhouse kitchen with oil-fired 2 oven Aga and electric Aga cooker module. French farmhouse-style 12 seater table and classic farmhouse dresser available by separate negotiation. Marble shelved walk-in larder.

Spacious oak floored sitting room with fine inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove. Door leading out to patio and walled garden (currently used as a kitchen garden).

Four double bedrooms (master bedroom with en suite shower room) and Victorian-style family bathroom with roll top bath and shower. Fine historic elm boarded floors.

The Cider Barn

A short distance from the house is this fine building of stone, cob and timber under slates which provides further living accommodation. Originally the location of the farms cider press, this beautiful double glazed barn conversion with reclaimed hardwood flooring provides three additional bedrooms and bathroom, for up to 8 guests.

There is a large open plan sitting room with wood burner and small kitchen area plus two double bedrooms (one with en suite shower room) and a further bathroom. Upstairs there is a large dormitory with sink with room for 4 single beds.

The Cider Barn is an energy efficient, environmentally friendly building, heated from the woodburner.

The Studio

This has been converted from a traditional animal house of part cob construction. The Studio provides a superior office and studio space with work stations for up to 10 members of staff. With custom made windows and doors designed to echo the style of the farmhouse, reclaimed maple flooring and exposed beams throughout. Two large open plan rooms offer a delightful, light-filled space to work from.

At one end of the building, a mezzanine offers additional storage space and at the other, a sink with built-in fridge and cupboards provides a small kitchen area.

The Shippon

A more recent conversion, The Shippon provides a highly energy efficient suite of workshop and work spaces, and is heated by means of a ground source heat pump with water taken from East Forde's own borehole water supply. The building is super insulated and double glazed throughout, comprising a large workshop, large natural-light filled studio space, quarry tiled utility area with butler sink and heat pump, WC, and oak floored mini den/office.

The Grounds

To the west of the house is a stunning walled kitchen garden area with raised beds and patio. Further buildings within the curtilage comprise: Hay Barn; Garages; Sheds and Tree House with informal wild flower garden areas largely left to nature. There are poultry houses with runs set beside the stream that flows the length of East Forde land. Beyond is a traditional cider orchard providing useful grazing.
