MATTHEWS FARMHOUSE Is a truly wonderful and atmospheric Grade II Listed farmhouse hosting an abundance of character features throughout the substantial 6 bedroom accommodation in excess of 3000 square feet nestled within its own grounds. There is a double cart-lodge with workshop and recreational space above and planning permission in place to utilise the cook house to the property. This is a magnificent home with viewing highly recommended. 

SELLER'S INSIGHT We originally purchased the property 14 years ago as we were looking for a property with space for our children and dogs. As soon as we walked in, we knew that this was the place for us, especially with it being within the heart of a lovely countryside village and there are some amazing walks.

We love every room here and will truly miss the history of the house and the period features. Externally, we enjoy different aspects as different times of the day, however there is nothing better than sitting with a glass of wine in the garden, enjoying the early evening and watching the sun go down.

During our time here, we have built the cart-lodge block, restored the house including upgrading the heating system, installing log burners, replacing the kitchen, windows and restoring the sash windows.

We are sad to leave here but it is time for us to have a change of lifestyle and just know that whoever comes here, will love it as much as we have.

STEP INSIDE The front door opens in to the Entrance Hall with brick flooring, stairs leading to the first floor and Cellar and doors leading to the Dining Room and Drawing Room. This room has an exposed ceiling timber, sash window and log burning stove. It's a lovely escape from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the building. A door leads to the Side Hall with door leading to the outside and a door leading to a Cloakroom. It is from this hallway where the access point would be to the Cook House, if implementing the planning permission in situ.

The Dining Room has a wealth of exposed ceiling timbers, sash window to the front and an impressive inglenook fireplace with inset log burning stove. Doors lead to the Study and Rear Hallway, which in turn has stairs leading to the first floor and door leading to the Kitchen.

The Farmhouse Kitchen is fitted with a range of base units, solid wood work surfaces and quarry tiled flooring. There is a four oven oil fired Aga, plumbing for dishwasher and doors providing access to the Utility and Boot Rooms. French doors open to the rear terrace which provides a useful over-flow for al fresco entertaining during the warmer months.

The first floor landing provides access to all rooms and has two staircases providing access to the second floor accommodation.

The Master Bedroom is dual aspect and has an En-suite Bathroom, walk in wardrobe and provides access to a vast eaves storage room. There are two further double bedrooms, a Study and Bathroom on this floor.

The second floor provides two generously proportioned rooms. One has a lovely exposed paneling and the other provides access to another superb eaves storage room.

STEP OUTSIDE The property is approached by a five bar gate opening to a gravel driveway, which leads to the Cart-lodge block and extends towards to the rear garden with large paved terrace adjoining the remainder of the garden which is laid to an expanse of lawn garden with mature trees and shrubs and provides views across neighbouring farmland.

From the driveway, there is a wrought iron gate which leads to the front garden. This is a good size and laid to lawn. There is a high mature hedgerow providing screening and a gate opening to the street scene.

The Cart-Lodge block comprises double bay parking and a workshop, with double timber doors, light and power connected. There is a door concealing a staircase leading to the first floor recreation space which measures in excess of 30 feet in length.
