Believed to be the original farmhouse, Capel Court Farm occupies a delightful setting with the house positioned at the heart of its immediate grounds. With lawns, a small orchard and a pond to the front, and a wonderful south-facing terrace and lawn to the rear, the feeling of openness and space is further enhanced by the gentle uphill view beyond the post-and-rail chestnut fence and over the paddocks.

This family home has been thoughtfully and stylishly extended by the present owners to create a contemporary layout with an open-plan feel while retaining the charm and showcasing the historical elements of the building’s heritage. Making full use of the southerly rear elevation, the spacious kitchen and principal reception rooms feature bi-fold doors opening out onto the Yorkstone terrace, flooding these areas with light year-round, and bringing house and garden together during the warmer months.

Designed with a very social configuration, the layout also presents distinct areas and spaces to accommodate family life. In addition to a cosy study, with built-in desk and storage, and a family room, the recently constructed oak framed outbuilding features a further flexible space, with kitchenette and shower room, lending itself to a variety of uses.

Upstairs, reached via a striking galleried staircase, are five bedrooms. The dual-aspect master suite is a well-proportioned room with lovely views over the paddocks and an impressive en suite bathroom featuring a contemporary pedestal bathtub. Four other bedrooms, a family bathroom and a shower room complete the accommodation.

Square Footage: 2,790 sq ft
Acreage: 4.8 Acres
