THE PROPERTY

Warren Farm is a fantastic village home which, with an attractive parcel of land and a variety of outbuildings including a number of stables, offers a highly desirable rural or equestrian lifestyle within a friendly community. Having been under the same ownership for more than half a century, the property has been meticulously cared for over the years, with updates including the addition of uPVC double glazing. Whilst the property has served as a fabulous family home there is now scope for modernisation, representing a rare opportunity for a discerning buyer to achieve a ready-made rural way of life alongside the chance to tailor an attractive farmhouse to their individual requirements.

Internally, the accommodation is spacious and well proportioned with an abundance of natural light throughout, making this property a true pleasure to be in. From the porch, a characterful wooden front door leads into a welcoming entrance hall, either side of which is a charming reception room. The sitting room can be found to the left; with window seats, an open fireplace and a fitted dresser, this beautiful room enjoys a hint of character, creating a perfect space for entertaining and family enjoyment alike. To the right is a formal dining room which in turn leads to the kitchen; a highly practical arrangement which offers a wonderful, sociable space for any occasion. The more functional areas are just as appealing; the kitchen is supported by a sizeable utility room, known to the current owners as the shake-down owing to it's aptness as a place in which to enter the house from the garden or yard and remove muddy clothes and shoes before stepping into the rest of the property. This most useful of rooms also benefits from plumbing for laundry facilities. A further asset is the cloakroom which is accessed from the entrance hall and also features a sizeable under-stair cupboard.

Stairs rise from the entrance hall to a split first floor landing, along which three generous bedrooms and two bathrooms are arranged in a wonderfully practical layout. The left wing of the landing is dedicated to the master bedroom and an adjacent bathroom, suggesting an ideal opportunity to create a stunning master suite. Two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom can be found on the right hand side of the landing offering a degree of separation from the master bedroom, perfect for families or those expecting regular guests.

OUTSIDE

Outdoor living at Warren Farm is an immense pleasure. The farmhouse, which stands gable-end on to the village road, is surrounded by varied, level gardens. Established, well stocked flower beds frame the front of the house with climbing roses to enhance the classical country farmhouse image. The smooth, well-kept front lawn benefits from flower and shrub borders which don't lose their appeal at the end of summer; taking full advantage of the sunny, south-facing aspect, the front garden offers a wonderful place for al fresco dining, entertaining or relaxing. To the rear of the property is an enclosed area, ideal for use as a secure dog run, and there is also a courtyard with access to a wood store. Parking is well provided for with a gated driveway leading to a garage, adjoining which are three stables, offering excellent outdoor storage.

With a separate, gated entrance and outbuildings including a large barn with a lean-to and a block of 5 stables with tack and feed rooms, the yard is perfectly set up to offer the amenities required for keeping livestock or horses whist maintaining a healthy divide between domestic and working areas. However, the benefit of proximity is retained with an area of lawn connecting the yard and land to the garden. Comprising 2.9 acres of primarily level pasture, the land is arranged as one field which can be accessed directly from the yard. Furthermore, the yard offers a multitude of possibilities, subject to any necessary consents being obtained.

 

Further land may be available by separate negotiation.
