Bennetts Farm is a delightful Grade II listed detached property enjoying a tranquil location along a quiet country lane. The property has been especially well cared for by the current owners and this is clearly evident upon any visit and it has been thoughtfully and cleverly extended and now provides charming accommodation that blends period charm with modern practicality.
Of note is the stylish reception hall which has attractive Karndean flooring, solid oak skirting boards and a detailed staircase rising to the first floor. Furthermore there are solid oak doors with Suffolk latches leading to a lavishly appointed utility/cloakroom which is fitted in a modern and contemporary style. Further versatility is added by a large boot/cloak cupboard. The original part of the property displays many fine period features to include a delightful oak frame with close studwork and wind bracing. The sitting room provides cosy formal entertaining space and has a detailed iron Victorian fireplace with a granite hearth and it takes in views to the grounds and gardens. The dining room is segregated from the sitting room via attractive open oak studwork and has a herringbone brick floor and a large inglenook fireplace which is flanked by a storage cupboard. From the dining room glazed Oak French doors lead to a delightful breakfast room which has French doors to the large South facing terrace making it ideal for large scale family entertaining. A large square arch then leads to the kitchen/breakfast room which is extensively fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units and integral appliances to include a dishwasher, range cooker and a large proportion of the room has a vaulted ceiling and takes in views to the grounds and gardens.
The first floor is equally charming and has solid oak spindles and balustrades to the stairs which leads to a landing with a part vaulted ceiling. The principal bedroom is situated in the original part of the property and benefits from a dual aspect enabling it to take advantage of the delightful views. This is a simply stunning room with a fully vaulted ceiling and has a magnificent king post on display. The second bedroom also benefits from a vaulted ceiling with a delightful oak frame on display and has views to the grounds and countryside beyond. The third bedroom is situated in the newer part of the property and has a dual aspect enabling it to take advantage of the views and has solid oak skirting boards and door surrounds. The bedrooms are served by a fantastic family bath/shower room with freestanding oval ended bath and a large walk-in shower cubicle and a complete range of bespoke storage cupboards with an oval sink on a plinth.

Outside
The property is approached via a pair of five bar gates which lead to an extensive gravelled area providing parking which is flanked by mature lawns with a variety of specimen trees which provide interest and focal points. Immediately to the rear of the house is an extensive sandstone terrace with a mellow red brick wall which has lighting making it ideal for late night entertaining. This terrace is positioned to take advantage of the all-day sun and benefits from a South and Westerly aspect. Beyond this is a large expanse of manicured lawn which provides private and secure family entertaining space.
The remainder of the property is primarily dedicated to equestrian use and to this effect it has five post and rail paddocks which can be accessed via the stable yard and via another gate leading from the lane. There is a 40 x 30 metre sand and rubber manége which can be directly accessed from the yard. A courtyard with a large area of hardstanding is formed by six stables, four of which are arranged in an L-shape with two further freestanding units. Adjacent to this is a detached annexe which would provide ideal staff accommodation or for those with extended family. The annexe provides well-appointed accommodation with a large sitting/bedroom adjacent to which is a well-proportioned kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of wall floor and wall mounted units and oak effect flooring. From here is a fully tiled shower room with matching three piece suite. Beyond the stable area a five bar gate leads to a dedicated washing facility with hard standing. In all about 8.25 acres(sts).
It would be fair to say that Bennetts Farm offers a unique mid-range equestrian facility with level land in a beautiful rural location yet only five minutes from major transport routes.
