6 Bedroom Farm House For Sale
MAIN HOUSE Fen Lane Farm is a highly impressive Grade II Listed farmhouse featuring a delightful blend of character, charm and contemporary modern features. Set in approximately 2.5 acres (stms) of mature lawned grounds and positioned in a well-regarded and unspoilt location. Located next to the farmhouse are two self-contained properties which previously have been very successful as private rentals but could also provide additional accommodation to the main farmhouse in the form of two annexe's, perfect for multi-generational living.
Originally thought to date from the late 17th century, the existing owners have accentuated the main residence with the addition of a luxurious, architecturally designed extension to create a collection of wonderful light and airy spaces arranged over two storeys with some 3181 sq.ft of living accommodation. The property is found in immaculate condition both inside and out with all of the high quality fixtures and fittings which one might expect to find in a property of this calibre. Care has also been taken to ensure that the original character features of the farmhouse have been retained whilst incorporating the requirements of modern living.
Upon entering the large entrance hall, complete with impressive gallery landing, access is granted into the extremely generous living room, measuring over 9 meters in length and includes patio doors that lead out to the patio and garden. Following this, the kitchen/breakfast room features an extensive range of shaker style units, a large central island with further storage and patio doors also leading out into the garden. Off the kitchen, a large and useful utility room can be found, also with a door granting access out into the garden. Continuing through the ground floor accommodation, the original farmhouse section leads you to a study, WC and reception room, all of which feature original exposed beams. The reception room is dual aspect and includes a wood-burning stove - a great space to retreat to.
Upstairs grants access to the large landing, which could easily be used as an additional home working area. Off this is the impressive principal bedroom, with the main focal point being the large feature window, providing fantastic field views. This bedroom also features a large contemporary en-suite with separate dressing room. In addition to this, there are two further bedrooms, both served by a family bathroom.
Externally, Fen Lane is approached via a shingled driveway flanked by post and rail fencing, with a pleasant paddock to the front of the property. The first portion of the driveway provides both access to the property and to the neighbouring 'Fen Lane Farm Barns'. The driveway separates into private portions for each property towards the centre of the paddock. A large shingled area to the front of the farmhouse provides ample parking. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with a large pond and a secluded terrace between the main residence and detached outbuilding.
