This beautifully presented property, close to all the village amenities…
This delightful property has been beautifully renovated to provide a farmhouse with character and period features, as well as an attached, but separate cottage and outbuildings, one of which boasts outline planning permission for conversion into further habitation. All set in over 2.5 acres of beautiful grounds, planted specifically with native trees, shrubs and flowering plants in order to create a haven for nature.
The property is approached via a tree-lined lane serving only this property, opening into a large gravelled courtyard, with ample parking for several vehicles. The house and cottage have been sympathetically renovated, combining the charm of the wealth of original features with oak beams and vaulted ceilings, whilst adding all the necessary facilities for convenient modern living, including fully automatic wood pellet heating, two shower rooms, full bathroom and a utility room.
The property offers a great deal of potential for flexible family living. In addition to the house, with a large master suite, there is a self-contained, 2-bedroom cottage for, perhaps, older relatives or adult/teenage children. Otherwise, the fully renovated cottage has great income potential as a holiday annex, retreat or other small business and is ready to rent out with no work to do.
The south-facing longère provides an attractive, large farmhouse with light and airy farmhouse kitchen / dining room providing a handmade kitchen, integral refrigerator, oven and gas hob, and an additional wood burning stove. The large family dining area is panelled and there are beautiful, ancient exposed beams. There are views and access to both the front and rear gardens in this double aspect room. The separate sitting room, another double aspect room, provides wooden flooring, exposed beams and a wood-burner. The utility room and ground floor shower room (housing the pellet boiler for the central heating system) complete the ground floor accommodation. The first floor provides a large landing /study with walk-in wardrobes, bathroom and master bedroom with cathedral ceiling. Splitting the current master bedroom to provide two bedrooms is feasible.
The attached cottage is all on one elevated level and provides a large kitchen / dining room / sitting room, two bedrooms and shower room and is also in very good condition. There are cellars under the cottage, at ground level. The attached barn provides outline planning permission for conversion into habitation, if further accommodation is required. This barn currently provides a games room/studio/extra bedroom with small office and WC. A further attached large hangar makes for an ideal storage unit, garage, wood store and much more! There is also a smaller detached hangar, ideal for garden machinery and storage too.
The gardens to the front are delightfully private with well-thought out plantings providing colour throughout the flowering season. Once again, with a nature haven in mind, there is something for everyone, to include flowering shrubs, hedgerows, trees and a reedy natural pond with herb and aromatics garden, a Jane Austenesque shrubbery and poultry runs and houses. The courtyard to the front is gravelled and provides parking and turning for many vehicles. The rear garden provides flowering shrubs in herbaceous borders, leading into a natural copse with mainly native trees and Americain oaks (for wood burner when thinned), meadow, two grassed picnic/play areas and large composting bays, all with hedgerows and pathways throughout. Not to mention the views over the local countryside! There is also a dedicated vegetable garden with a large glass greenhouse. There is an abundance of fruit trees including apple, pear, plum, cherry and damson and also soft fruits including strawberry, gooseberry, goji berry and raspberry. There are natural blackberries and hazel nuts, chestnuts and walnuts. It’s a beautiful, productive garden, full of bird song!
An ideal property for nature lovers with immediate income potential, and although no work is required, there is a possibility to convert a barn into accommodation, if required.
