Dating back to 1580, The Old Farm is an outstanding example of an Elizabethan country house that has been sympathetically renovated by the present owners to provide a stunning interior that successfully blends period features with modern-day luxuries. It is rich in exposed beams and many additional features including vaulted ceilings, period fireplaces including an impressive inglenook style fireplace in the sitting room, Travertine flooring throughout much of the ground floor, leaded light windows and latch doors. The accommodation offers immense flexibility and the many ground floor rooms include a triple aspect drawing room, a good-sized dining room and an elegant sitting room, all with stone fireplaces, and a country style kitchen/breakfast room featuring a tall arched window and part vaulted, beamed ceiling.
The first floor is arranged to provide an impressive master bedroom with an en suite dressing room and spacious bathroom, a guest bedroom with an en suite bathroom, four further bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate shower room.
In addition to the main house, there is ancillary accommodation in the form of a guest/staff apartment comprising a sitting room/kitchen, bedroom and shower room, along with a summer house with a reception room/bedroom, kitchenette and shower room.
The Old Farm is approached via electrically operated double gates opening onto a sweeping gravel driveway, flanked by areas of lawn and ornamental rose beds. The driveway culminates in a parking area and provides access to the garaging. The lawned front gardens feature a central parterre style garden enclosed by clipped box hedging. Additional interest is provided by an original ’working’ well. To the rear, the gardens have been designed to create areas of visual interest and there are various seating areas and also a barbeque area.
The property boasts a 400 sq. m. synthetic Pro-system golf green by Southwest Greens and designed by Donald Steel. For golf enthusiasts, the club room will also be of interest, equipped with a drinks bar, a wine store and a cloakroom, and situated within the former stable block. Also located in the block is a double garage and 3 stalls/store rooms. Further leisure facilities include an outdoor swimming pool area with adjoining summer house, an ’all weather’ tennis court and a barbecue area.
