Full description:

Charcoal Farm is an attractive brick and flint built farmhouse believed to date back some 300 years. In recent times it has been generously extended and much improved and now offers spacious and well presented accommodation combined with tremendous character. The property is entered through a large, light entrance hall with a vaulted ceiling and a ceramic tiled floor. To the right is a farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room with a lovely ornate terracotta tiled floor, beamed ceiling, exposed brickwork and an inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. There is a good range of bespoke solid oak units, an integrated range cooker and dishwasher, ample built-in storage cupboards and a large central island with an inset sink, storage cupboards and a wine cooler. There is a useful utility room which leads to a cloakroom with a modern white suite, the rear garden and the cellar. To the right of the kitchen is an inner hallway with stairs to the first floor and doors to the study and the family room. The family room is a wonderfully light triple aspect room with two sets of double glazed French doors which open onto the side and rear patio areas. This room has an integrated B & W surround sound system with speakers inset throughout the ceiling. To the left of the kitchen/breakfast room there is a comfortable sitting room with a beamed ceiling and double glazed French doors to the rear. This in turn leads to a stunning drawing room which is bathed in natural light from its triple aspect and the bi-folding doors which open onto the garden. This room has a lovely fireplace with an oak surround, a granite hearth and a wood burning stove. From here a second staircase leads up to the first floor.

The master bedroom is a large triple aspect room with a vaulted ceiling, fitted bedroom furniture, inset ceiling speakers and a large en suite bathroom. This comprises a beautiful freestanding rolled top bath, twin marble circular basins and a walk in double shower cubicle. The second bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and bi-folding doors that open out onto a large galleried sun terrace with outstanding views over the gardens and the surrounding countryside. There is an adjoining shower room with twin sinks, a luxury walk-in shower cubicle, wc and ample bespoke storage. The third bedroom is a large double with original beams, fitted double wardrobes, an en suite bathroom and beautiful views to the front of the property. There are two further bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room and both of which are well proportioned double rooms

Charcoal Farm is set on approximately 14 acres of gardens, paddocks and grazing land and enjoys outstanding views over the surrounding countryside. The formal gardens are mainly to the rear and the side of the property, whilst the paddocks make up the land to the front of the farmhouse. A particular feature of the gardens is the outdoor swimming pool which is surrounded by decking and enclosed by a low level flint wall. This leads to a lovely decked and covered barbeque area which enjoys excellent views over the gardens. There is an adjoining changing room/shower room with a sauna and pump house. There is ample parking to the front of the property which is complimented by a flint and brick double garage. In addition to the main residence there is a detached annexe which is beautifully matched to the farmhouse with its attractive flint and brick construction. This comprises two identical cottages with each one consisting of a bedroom, sitting room, bathroom, kitchen and utility room. These would make ideal staff or guest accommodation or possibly even holiday cottages.
