Oozing character and charm, you can feel the love that has gone into this lovely family home. With origins dating back to the 1800's, the property which sits on approximately ½ acre, has undergone a programme of improvements over the years, in keeping with its period qualities.

The front entrance to the property is via a solid oak door into a useful porch, which in turn opens into the amazing hallway. A substantial area that offers a multitude of uses including a cosy seating nook behind the feature wrought iron spiral staircase. There is an open plan arrangement to a large reception room with central open fire. The area is currently utilised as a snug at one end with a study at the other. Depending upon your family requirements, this room offers a great deal of flexibility.

The dining room has exposed beams to the ceiling and stairs leading to the first floor accommodation. From the dining room is the kitchen with its beamed ceiling and stone tiled floor. It has a wide range of fitted pine units with granite work surfaces and a sunken Belfast sink. Integral appliances include electric oven, hob, extractor hood and dishwasher. As you walk into the beautiful living room you face the feature circular stained glass window, and exposed beamed ceiling. Double oak doors open onto the patio area of the rear garden. A downstairs shower room completes the downstairs accommodation.

To the first floor are four double bedrooms, a dressing room and bathroom. Behind the existing fitted wardrobes, the dressing room can connect to the master bedroom and could easily be transformed into an en-suite if desired (for which the current owners have had plans drawn). The wrought iron spiral staircase from the entrance hall rises to a spacious landing area.

The property is accessed through a double 5-bar gate onto an extensive gravelled parking area, with detached double garage. There is a lawned front garden with attractive shrubs and trees. The south facing and fully enclosed side garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature planted borders, and a lovely seating area perfect for relaxation and entertaining.

If you are looking for a quirky characterful property in a rural environment, then Ivy Farm House certainly fits the bill. The layout of the property offers flexibility to accommodate your personal family requirements, therefore we urge you to arrange a viewing to see for yourself.
