General Description - The Old Dairy is one of the best examples of craftsmanship tailoring old world charm into modernity. McHugh construction have sympathetically set about restoring and adapting this lovely old dairy into a stunning home, the principal feature of which is it’s quite remarkable living kitchen, this alone extending to 860 square feet! (80 square metres). The hand crafted and ‘seamless’ kitchen zone is stunning, finished in white quartz with units presented in Farrow and Ball colours of "Hague Blue" and "Blackened." This room has light and height with a vaulted ceiling above the wonderful queen post trusses that have been preserved. The flooring by Quorn Stone is Avignon Grey Limestone. The flooring to the hall and lounge is in quality rustic engineered oak. The accommodation in all extending to 292 square metres or 3200 square feet (excluding the garaging) is cleverly designed around the central courtyard and has outlooks on two sides over fields. Approximately 2 acres of land can be rented including two loose boxes and a feed store by negotiation.

Please note : Bedroom four and the guest room next to it have been designed in such a way that it could be used as a small annex for parents, au pair and others as it has a French door access out onto the courtyard.

Specification - The dairy was stripped right back to bare brick yet retaining important features and reconstructed in the vernacular yet bring in a specification that befits modern construction and living styles. The build is covered by a 10 year NHBC warranty. The property has been ‘wrapped’ in rigid and flexible insulation bats or boards to ensure adequate warmth and reduce heating costs.

The heating is gas fired, wet piped underfloor with zoning from a condensing conventional system boiler with a hot water cylinder suitable for simultaneous multi person usage. Each room has an individual thermostatic control. Hot water provision is fed backed up by immersion heating if required. The interior has been provided with more than adequate power outlet allocation to all rooms with TV and USB points to the Lounge, Kitchen and all bedrooms. There is TV cabling installed for such as Sky if required. Cladding is a UV treated Siberian Larch. The accommodation has an alarm.

The courtyard is approached through electrically controlled gates and the garage doors are up and over electrically operated. Bathroom vanity units are by Roper Rhodes to their Hampton range in chalk white, vanilla and mocha. Mirrors and cabinets are demister heated and have shaver points. The kitchen has been hand crafted to an exacting standard, finished in white quartz over high quality base units with ample cupboards and nests of drawers all with self-closing mechanisms. The double waste storage unit is hand close. There are expensive Shaws 'Belfast' double sinks in enamel with Rangemaster pull out satin finish nickel taps. Similarly in the utility room there is a Shaws 1000 mm 'Belfast' sink with similar taps. The two fitted ovens are by Neff (B57CR22NOB) which are slide and hide Pyrolytic fan ovens. At the rear of the ceramic Flexi-Induxtion hob by Neff (T59FT50X0) is a Best automatic down draft extractor (BE-LI-90-GL). There is a plumbed in Samsung 'American' fridge freezer (RSG5UYUSL) with ice and iced water delivery. The dishwasher is integrated by Neff (S515T80D2G). An integrated wine cooler is included (CDA FWC603SS) being a 60 cm free standing under counter unit.

Services - All five properties on the site have been installed with their own sewage treatment plants each treating individual effluent discharging into a main shared private drain, which runs into a pumping station that discharges through a collection chamber to a watercourse on the vendor's land. Surface water is dealt with in the same manner through an independent system with attenuation tanks below ground, one of which is situated beneath the rear garden of The Old Dairy. All easement will be included to protect the provision and maintenance of the system. The vendors will be setting up a service contract with CM Environmental Services, which will incur an annual fee for the system maintenance. This fee will be divided between all five properties. It is anticipated that the annual maintenance visit will cost £150 inclusive and any desludge visit is £200 if required. The SAP/Energy calculations by Ashby Energy have satisfied the requirements of both the NHBC and Building Control.
