STYLE – Charming Country House
HIGHLIGHTS – Beautifully Decorated Oozing Period Charm with Studio Annex
THREE WORDS – Simply Stunning Home!


Overview 
A home with history, charm and character. Toft Farmhouse is beautiful and oozes charm, it is an exquisite blend of country and rustic style. Probably dating back to the 1700's this stunning property enjoys a prominent position in the heart of the unspoilt village of West Lilling. It has been lovingly refurbished by the current owner creating an idyllic family home with separate studio annex. There is a sense of history with panelled doors sash windows, exposed beams and period fireplaces. Each room is beautifully decorated with attention to detail and all the finishing touches. Set within a private south facing walled garden, it is a haven for keen gardeners with raised beds, established herbaceous borders, wildflower meadow and fruit trees. There is also a secret garden that children will love! This is a rare opportunity to own a beautiful country home.

Step Inside 
As you head through the double timber gates you notice the hollyhocks roses and climbing Wisteria that frame the porch leading to the stable door into the boot room, perfect for dumping muddy wellies after a long walk with the dog and ideal for unloading the groceries after a weekly shop. Straight ahead is a useful utility with Belfast sink and cloakroom. Walk through to the living dining kitchen, with a country vibe it really is the heart of this home. The kitchen has subtle Farrow and Ball painted cupboards and drawers which perfectly complement the solid oak worksurface. The chimney breast houses the Aga, with additional steam oven and all mod cons this is a super space for any busy cook. The large island takes centre stage with plenty of space for preparing supper or making jams with apples and medlars picked from the garden. The living dining area is a superb sociable space for the whole family to be together or impressing friends with your culinary skills! And then...

Bedrooms 
Upstairs is just as beautifully decorated in the elegant style as the rest of this impeccable home. Take the stairs to a galleried landing with original wide timber floorboards. Windows facing the front make it wonderfully light and airy, and offer views of the castle across the fields. The Garden Bedroom has lovely views of the garden, and a luxurious ensuite bathroom with beautiful open fireplace creating a tranquil retreat to look forward to at the end of a long day. The large Master bedroom has plenty of space for a Super king sized bed. The alcoves adjacent to the chimney breast with open fire perfectly fit two double wardrobes. There is also room for a sofa, walking through to a contemporary ensuite with power shower. There are two further bedrooms. Another double aspect super King double in the East Wing with beautiful morning light, and a smaller but pretty double with original Inglenook chimney breast and private garden views.

Studio Annex 
This converted cart shed has been thoughtfully designed creating a wonderful, open plan annex. Perfect for guests, teenagers or as a useful home office or art studio with super-fast broadband and plenty of wired internet connection it is perfect for a home office - enough space for everyone to work or have an art studio or to house the boomerang kids/grandparents. It is bathed in natural light with two sets of French doors overlooking the garden and velux windows. The vaulted ceiling has exposed beams and central A-frame. The contemporary log burner with exposed flue is the focal point creating a homely feel.

Outside 
Park on the gravel drive and you can take in the delightful south facing walled garden flanked by climbing flowers, cottage plants and trees, this really is a haven for those green fingered buyers and a wonderland for children. The garden is predominately laid to lawn and meadow with gravel paths defining each space. There are well established raised beds with colourful vegetables, wild lettuces and edible flowers along with a number of neatly positioned Apple and Medlar trees. Follow the path and this takes you to a pretty paved sun terrace with fresh smelling lavender. This is a south facing space and we can imagine having the most wonderful parties with friends and family. Continue and you will find a second sun terrace in front of the living kitchen. There is a useful brick store and potting shed separated by a covered seating area, this a super spot to enjoy afternoon tea in the shade. To the rear of the garden double timber gates lead to a secret lawned garden. This...
