Birtles Hall Farm is a remarkable family residence and lies within the original Birtles Hall Estate. It not only provides well presented, spacious and versatile accommodation but has the added benefit of a charming separate 3 bedroom cottage; The Round House. This has produced a significant income over recent years and is perfect for guests, extended family or to continue letting.

The property was created about 15 years ago from a series of substantial farm buildings and was crafted to create the superb home presented today. The thoughtful conversion presents versatile space, the heart of which is the vaulted living kitchen area, with its AGA, David Lisle bespoke cupboards and integrated appliances including a top notch Sub Zero fridge freezer and wine store. The granite topped island extends into a butcher’s block and limestone floors lie beneath the exposed trussed roof. A contemporary wood burning stove warms this wonderful family space.

The welcoming family entrance hall is in the two storey west wing and this has a large and very practical boot room/dog room off, along with a separate laundry room. On the first floor, above this, is a generous guest or staff suite with a bed sitting room and a bathroom.

The main accommodation is in the east wing and includes the formal galleried entrance hall with its oak staircase and large cloakroom with w.c. The formal drawing room has a triple aspect and lovely oak board floors and a traditional fireplace. Flanking the hall are two reception rooms which are currently used as a family room and a study and a formal dining room with a dual aspect and an oak door to the garden. There is a real fire in a marble fireplace and library shelving.

A family snug connects the dining room to the kitchen and has an attractive corner fireplace with a wood-burning stove. The house boiler room lies off with an indoor log store.

The first floor provides four further bedrooms, two share an en suite bathroom with a separate shower, the fourth lies alongside the house bathroom, also with a separate shower and there is a glorious master suite with a dual aspect, a dressing room and an en suite bathroom.

The Round House is a beautifully presented separate cottage and features a most attractive and unusual curved wall, up which runs a bespoke oak staircase off the entrance hall. A triple aspect lounge overlooks the gardens and countryside and a dining kitchen is well equipped with a range cooker and has a tiled floor. A pantry lies off along with a utility room with an outside door.

The first floor provides 3 good sized fitted bedroom including the master bedroom with an en suite bathroom and a house bathroom with a separate shower.

The garages are presently configured to provide a workshop, a garden garage, stables and a leisure room but could be re-instated relatively easily.

The gardens extend around the property and include a walled terrace area, a floodlit Astroturf all weather tennis court and an outdoor heated swimming pool with a ‘swim against’ facility and a hot tub.
An orchard, raised beds and a greenhouse will suit gardeners.
