Old Farm - New Beginings
There are many factors that make Old Farm a magical home - the stunning setting is the first thing that will make you stop and breath in the fresh air. From the lawn of Old Farm you look out over your land and across uninterrupted country views with just the sound of tweeting birds and the horses hoofs. The second thing is the size and scale of the house and the outbuildings - the property is big, very big but it is not overpowering. There are stables, stores and barns that have planning permission to link to the main house and make Old Farm into a new property altogether. The third factor about the house is the warmth and the familiar sense of home.
Old Farm is a gorgeous family home with space, style, potential and a very exciting future.
Let’s go through the facts: 7.19 acres of gardens and land. Grade II Farm House with 6 bedrooms and 8 reception rooms. Planning Permission granted to extend and develop existing buildings.
Dating back to the 15th Century Old Farm has a glorious and fascinating past (that we will be delighted to tell you about over a cup of tea). The house oozes charm and is full of original features like the original Fleur de Lys wall painting, the inglenook fireplace in the lounge with its barrel top and the original old ham cupboard to the side, and the Jacobean staircase. There are wonky bits and creaking floorboards but it all adds to the history and fun of the home.
One of the great aspects of the property is the juxtaposition of the new with the old. The Dairy has been converted into a vaulted drawing room, which looks out onto the stunning garden. There is a modern oak framed garden room and a bespoke library that contrasts with the warm charm of the original house.
The designs for the proposed development are very exciting.The architect envisages a home that is centred around the courtyard with the barns transformed into two storey accommodation that links effortlessly into the main house. There will be a new entrance hall and staircase, a games room, studio, utility and cloakroom downstairs, which will flow beautifully into the kitchen. The first floor will be a stunning high level galleried staircase and landing area with three major bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. New owners will have the opportunity to make these plans come to life and create a bespoke home.
