The entire ground floor benefits from underfloor heating and oak panelled doors lead off to the principal rooms. The kitchen/family room is a particular focal point of the property, affording ample space for a family table and having doors opening onto the rear walled courtyard, making for a superb entertaining space. The kitchen area has exposed beams with inset spotlights and has been fitted with a bespoke range of units, including peninsula unit, all with granite work surfaces over and incorporating fitted appliances and four oven AGA. The sitting room is spacious and enjoys a dual aspect with patio doors opening to both courtyard gardens. The central feature is an attractive brick fireplace with living flame gas fired stove.
A most impressive high vaulted ceiling galleried landing boasts exposed wall timbers matching heavy oak doors leading off to all rooms. The master bedrooms is particularly light and spacious with full width windows to each end of the room. All further bedrooms are considered well proportioned double rooms with the rear bedroom having bespoke fitted oak wardrobes and stairs rising to a mezzanine landing. A centrally located family bathroom has been stylishly appointed with a contemporary white suite, comprising both roll top bath and separate walk in shower enclosure. Further to the main house accommodation, there is a further separate studio unit behind the property, currently utilised as a home gym/playroom but affording superb annexe potential with a separate kitchen/utility room and its own heating/electric supply.
The Cider Barn has a particularly large area for parking, suitable for many vehicles and providing access to two double garages, complete with power, lighting and two double up and over doors to the front. A high stone wall with heavy wooden door opens into a secluded courtyard. This has been attractively terraced to take advantage of the sun throughout the majority of the day. Steps lead up to an open fronted porch retained by an oak frame and posts. The rear garden, similar to the front, has been created with easy maintenance in mind, having large paved patio areas interspersed with feature shrub beds and a stone seat.
Adjoining the property there are two paddocks totalling approximately 4.15 acres and taking gated access directly from the parking area. The immediate adjacent paddock enjoys the benefit of a mains water trough.
There are two blocks of units at Western Farm, Block A and B are office blocks currently occupied by local businesses. Please speak to the agent regarding income potential. Each office unit features a kitchenette and cloakroom.
Across the yard are two large workshops constructed with steel cladding over a steel frame, set upon a concrete base. The buildings measure approximately 47' 7'' x 44' 0'' (14.49m x 13.40m) and 44' 3'' x 18' 4'' (13.48m x 5.58m). Both are currently occupied but the smaller of the two is utilised by the vendor. All leases and contractual obligations for each of the occupied units can be made available upon request. Finally the units afford extensive hard standing and parking space, making it easier for large vehicles to access/navigate etc. There is also further potential (subject to satisfying the necessary planning authorities) to increase the number of industrial units.
