Property Description

Additional Information

A very handsome period farmhouse that has retained both open and closed barns ideal for storage or even conversion (subject to planning) into either an annex, holiday lets or studio's. The house overlooks the old farm yard, ample garden and paddock, beyond which are some beautiful far reaching countryside views. The garden is a real wildlife haven with its cottage flower planted beds attracting all manner of butterfly?s and insects. The rose bed in front of the summer house is a particularly pretty picture as it draw yours eye down the garden. A slight slope then takes you under a 250 year old beech tree and down into the 1/3 acre paddock enclosed on three sides with open fencing to allow you to really get the best of those previously mentioned views.

Stone Farm is a fine example of a period house that is as impressive on the inside as it is the outside. The first thing that really jumps out at you as you enter the property is the decorative mosaic flooring in the hallway. From here you have a choice of direction, upstairs to the first floor landing, right into the front facing dining room or left into the cosy living room. Here you immediately feel a sense of relaxation as you can really start to imagine what it would be like to live in such a lovey house. There is a lovely inglenook stone fireplace with wooden bressumer and log burning stove, further exposed timbers and French doors leading out onto the sun terrace. The dining room again calming and packed with features offers a lovely space to entertain in the colder months while the French doors again take you outside to the sun terrace, an ideal space for outside entertaining and alfresco dining. The family kitchen flows from both reception rooms and measures in excess of 32' in length. At one end is a pretty duck egg blue Aga set in a stone fireplace and the other a fitted kitchen between which is a large space for a farmhouse style table and chairs. Glazed double doors then take you into the conservatory and steps into a rear lobby which in turn takes you into a very well-proportioned utility room in excess of 15' in length. There?s a side entrance into a handy boot room and a down stairs washroom that doubles up as a cloakroom complete the ground floor. From the kitchen there is a stair case leading to the fourth bedroom which is currently used as a study. The first floor landing from the main stair case conveniently gives access to the rest of the accommodation, most impressive of which is the master bedroom. A large space with built in cupboards, front facing window with views of the garden and a luxury ensuite shower room. Two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom complete this level with the only thing left being the attic room. So much more than though, this could make a fantastic fifth bedroom with a few alterations and the relevant documents as it already boasts two sky light windows and heating. The vendor informs us that the remaining roof space currently has building regulation approval for the conversion into a master suite. All in all this is a fantastic opportunity to get away from it all whilst providing further potential if you needed more or would like to provide yourself an income closer to home.

Agents note: There is a right of way across the yard for South West Water, in order for them to maintain the local system.
