Property Description

Full description

A large extended Victorian house set in 0.8 of an acre, situated in an enviable rural setting surrounded by fields.

Believed to date back to the early 19th century, the property has been sympathetically extended by the current owners to offer spacious and versatile accommodation, whilst still allowing scope for further enhancement. With extensive grounds and stunning views, School Barn Farm is an appealing residence of brick construction under a slate roof, set in grounds of 0.8 acres (subject to survey). The property benefits from stabling, a delightful meadow/paddock with wild orchids and flowers, formal gardens, garaging and parking.

The accommodation comprises reception hall with wooden flooring, cloakroom, a useful study area, doors off and arch to snug with a sash window to rear aspect and a feature brick fireplace. The sitting room is a generous, light and comfortable triple-aspect room with attractive brick fireplace housing a multi-fuel-burning stove. The study has French doors leading to the side garden, and the dining room, which offers a versatile space, was originally the kitchen, with original metal meat hooks adding character to the room.

A door leads to a lobby and on to the kitchen/breakfast room – a wonderful area for family living and entertaining, with fine views across the meadow and the start of the Stour Valley Walk. Bi-folding glazed doors give access to the garden, and a stunning raised roof light floods the room with natural light. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden base, wall and display cabinets, dark granite-style work surfaces, range cooker with 7 ringed burners, and tiled flooring. A door leads to the utility area which provides further storage units, plumbing for washing machine, oil-fired boiler and door to rear garden.

On the first floor are five bedrooms and two family bathrooms. The guest bedroom benefits from an en suite shower room.

The grounds are a fine attribute of the property and extend to 0.8 acres (sts), with formal garden areas, stabling and tack room, a range of outbuildings, meadow and garaging. The property has previously been run as a successful and award-winning Bed and Breakfast and also has planning permission for two yurts.
