Set behind electric gates and approached via a private avenue, the accommodation combines the original farmhouse with a light-filled two-storey extension. Mature trees throughout the grounds provide a great sense of privacy, while their clever positioning still allows for views of the landscape to be enjoyed.

Continuing down the inner hall, this part of the home connects the original farmhouse with the extension and leads straight through to the open-plan kitchen, living and dining room.

This space is warm and welcoming, yet also has an abundance of natural light thanks to French doors which lead to three balconies. With southern, eastern and northern aspects, it’ll be easy to follow the sun on long summer days.

Oak flooring and a wood-burning stove provide a cosy feel in the living and dining area, while the kitchen is finished in a contemporary country-style with cream units and black tiled floors. Other features include a centre island with a granite countertop, and an oil-fired Aga. 

There’s further space to unwind or to entertain in the family room, which benefits from access to two separate balconies.
