Charming Grade II Listed house (5,334 sq ft), with beautiful mature gardens and wonderful southerly views. Tennis court, swimming pool, gardens, pasture and woodland - in all about 28.58 acres.


Jacobs Farm is a Grade II Listed property which is believed to have origins dating from the mid-14th century, although has been greatly extended over the years and re-faced in the mid-18th century with later additions.
The house is approached via a network of country lanes set up a tree-lined driveway. The house is constructed of brick, with a tile hung front facade under a tiled roof. It is centrally located within its own land, with fabulous southerly views across the open countryside.
The property has been in the same ownership for 47 years, and could now benefit from being updated.
An oak front door with covered canopy to entrance hall with quarry tiled floor, wood panelling to dado height, staircase to first floor.
Inner hall/study area leads to the drawing room with exposed floorboards, good ceiling heights and large sash windows overlooking the beautiful gardens, grounds and countryside beyond.
From the inner hall a door leads to the dining room with exposed floorboards and former inglenook fireplace.
The sitting room has an inglenook fireplace with exposed ceiling timbers, large window, outlook over garden with adjoining door to south-facing terrace.
The kitchen is situated to the front of the house, has a door to the terrace and leads into the breakfast room with wood strip flooring, views over its own farmland and beyond.
There is a family room with quarry tiled floor, panelling to dado height. Large boot room with separate WC.
To the rear of the house is a television room, a study, large utility room and wonderful scullery with original slate shelving. The rear lobby with back door adjoins a further cloakroom.
From the hall, brick steps lead down to the wine cellar with quarry tiled floor.
Stairs lead to a spacious landing with linen cupboards and airing cupboard with hot water cylinder and immersion.
On the first floor there are 6 bedrooms, including a master bedroom which has wonderful double aspect views over the countryside and rose garden, en suite bathroom and wood-panelled dressing room with built in cupboards. There are 5 further bedrooms and three bathrooms (two en suite).
A staircase leads to the second floor where there are three attic bedrooms (two of which inter-connect).

THE GARDENS AND GROUNDS
These are a magnificent and beautifully maintained feature of the property, enjoying complete privacy and far-reaching views. There are manicured lawns, well-stocked herbaceous borders, clipped and shaped mature yew hedging, and a selection of specimen trees including cedar atlantica glauca, a willow, Scots pine, copper beech, flowering Japanese cherry, a row of lime trees, Acer palmatum and a magnificent yew tree.
There is an area of partly walled garden, under-planted with Spring bulbs including daffodils, snowdrops and bluebells.
To the west of the house is a superb rose garden laid out in the design of the Union flag. The swimming pool is enclosed by beech and yew hedging with honeysuckle on a length of arbour. The pool is heated via an air source heat pump and set within a paved and lawned surround. The tennis court was resurfaced in 2017.
Jacobs Farm is approached from a quiet country lane onto a discrete tree-lined driveway which leads to the house, with a parking area for a number of cars, and garaging. There is a second cellar, accessed by external steps and containing the boiler for the house.
Near the house is a collection of buildings including: garage block; potting shed and garden implement store. Sheltered behind the garage block is a kitchen garden with espaliered pear tree, very dilapidated greenhouse, and coal store.
The land extends to 28.3 acres, with approximately 13 acres being laid to pasture, and of particular note is the 'Park Field' which the house overlooks with its mature trees including a magnificent Cedar of Lebanon, oaks, beech and mountain ash. The remainder of the land is laid to gardens and an attractive area of woodland with rides.
