IN SUMMARY Guide Price £1,100,000 - £1,200,000. This DETACHED Grade II listed former FARMHOUSE is believed to date back to the 1500s in parts and is of oak timber frame construction. The property presents a FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITY to acquire a ready made business opportunity or an amazing family home with plenty of accommodation. Previously and currently run as a SUCCESSFUL rental business, the property has multiple facets spanning some 7000 SQFT (stms) in total and has possibilities for MULTI-GENERATIONAL living. In brief, there is a wonderful farmhouse with SEVEN BEDROOMS and THREE RECEPTIONS ROOMS, an adjoining ONE BEDROOM ANNEXE, a separate DETACHED ONE BEDROOM COTTAGE and a POOL HOUSE COMPLEX with indoor swimming pool and TWO BEDROOM self contained accommodation. In the 1980s a significant and sympathetic refurbishment programme was undertaken with later additions in more recent times. The property sits within a stunning private plot of approx. 2 ACRES (stms).

SETTING THE SCENE Approached via a private driveway from Long Row through a set of double gates there is a tree lined driveway sweeping through the front of the plot leading to the main shingled driveway / parking area to the front and side. The main entrance door to the farm house is found to the front from the main driveway.

THE FARMHOUSE The impressive period farmhouse offers a huge amount of space over two floors and is adjoined to the pool house accommodation via the swimming pool. Entering the main front door there is a welcoming entrance hallway with stairs to the first floor landing. There is a W/C to the right and to the left the main reception room, a very impressive room with large inglenook fireplace and exposed beams. There is then a large dining room and kitchen open plan to one another with large central island. This leads to a rear hallway with a back staircase to the first floor landing as well as utility area and further reception room beyond. The rear hallway also provides access to the swimming pool. Heading up to the first floor landing there are a number of bedrooms on this level. In total you will find five double bedrooms each with their own individual character. There are also three en-suites and two further bathrooms. On the upper levels there are a further two double bedrooms.

THE POOL HOUSE Offering flexible and extensive accommodation, the pool house complex is again completely self contained but can also be accessed via the indoor pool with the main house beyond. Internally you will find a large sitting room, kitchen/dining room, two double bedrooms and two shower rooms and W/C. Within one of the bathrooms is also a large steam room. From the kitchen area there is direct access into the indoor swimming pool.

THE COTTAGE The delightful detached cottage includes exposed beams and other character features as well as French doors leading to a decked area over the pond from the sitting room. The Cottage also offers a utility room and porch entrance, fitted kitchen/dining room, ground floor cloakroom and first floor en-suite bedroom with adjacent walk-in wardrobe. The main reception rooms are generous in size and lead out to the private decked veranda.

THE RETREAT Attached to the main house, the Annexe can be accessed either by its own external door to the rear or via the main house itself. Inside you will find an open plan sitting/bedroom area, shower room and kitchenette all with views over the rear garden.

THE GREAT OUTDOORS Externally the private grounds extend to approximately two acres (stms) including a large paddock, pond with veranda, formal gardens and woodland to the front boundaries.

Found off the indoor swimming pool complex there is a private and secluded courtyard providing excellent space for alfresco dining. The pool house complex, the cottage and the annexe all have their own separate access from the grounds and can be separated or incorporated into the total accommodation.
