This fine home known as Henford Farm is one of the oldest in this small hamlet within a lovely rural area of rolling countryside. Without fail, every spring the front façade of the building is lit up with beautiful wisteria. The four bedroom (one en-suite) property which dates back to the heart of the Georgian era has a wealth of character throughout including a beamed ceiling in the inner kitchen area, fireplaces, slated floors, wooden internal doors, deep cills and leaded windows. Modern comforts include oil fired central heating, UPVC double glazing, modern downlighting and high quality bathrooms. Our clients have resided here for some 20 years and during that time have made numerous and sympathetic improvements to the farmhouse as well as maintaining it to a high standard. Most significant is the large orangery which stands at the rear and is a wonderful living/kitchen space enjoying a view over the rear garden and valley. Externally, the home has a range of outbuildings including one large barn which has a wealth of opportunity to be converted (subject to consents) to create a large ancillary building or possibly a holiday let. The gardens are well manicured and the premium stabling and paddocks with the total plot in the region of 8.5 acres make Henford Farm an ideal equestrian property.
Beyond the attractive façade lies the spacious and well-proportioned accommodation which is accessed through the entrance porch. The main lounge is a lovely room which is dominated by the attractive fireplace having a clome oven and inset multi fuel burning stove. This is the largest reception space and has a door which leads to the feature wooden staircase which ascends to the first floor. The sitting room also has a feature fire surround with cupboards to the side and a solid fuel burner inset. This room has been used as a large home office and therefore would suit those who work from home. The formal dining area has a flagstone floor and is dual aspect and has feature wooden doors and a stained glass window. The area has a lovely warm ambience when entertaining. The kitchen is divided into two separate areas with an inner kitchen which comprises of an oil fired Aga and also a LPG gas stove. A significant feature of the home is the stunning triple aspect orangery which was added back in 2015. It is a wonderful light and airy space that has a hybrid use off the main kitchen area with space for relaxing. It comes into its own when entertaining as access can be gained to the grounds with ease from this space. It has a reflective glass roof with inset down lighting to the perimeter and slate flooring. The kitchen area has solid beech worktops, breakfast bar, cream units and an inset Belfast sink unit with mixer and a separate boiling hot tap. Included in the sale is an under cabinet drinks fridge. From the room attractive views can be enjoyed towards the garden.
All rooms on the first floor are served by the attractive minstrel landing. The first floor has original floorboards. The master bedroom has a cast iron grate within a fire surround and wood panelled walls. The en-suite shower room has a further feature stained glass window and a large shower cubicle. Bedroom two is a good size and like all of the rooms enjoys wonderful views either over the garden or surrounding countryside. The luxury family bathroom/WC is fully tiled and has a matching suite with a 'P' shaped bath.
Accessed from the single track road the property is enclosed by double five bar gates which opens into the driveway which provides initial parking and follows through to the gravelled drive. The drive leads to the large car port which has parking for many cars, trailers, agricultural vehicles and under cover space for general storage. The front garden to the property is well enclosed by stone walling. The main area of garden is low maintenance, extends to the rear and comprises of a gravelled area which is ideal for outside dining. Much of the garden has been planted by our clients and has matured nicely over the last 20 years or so.
The foliage is predominately evergreen and provides both shelter and privacy all year round. Such shrubs and bushes include bamboo and many different varieties of palm. A large feature ornamental pond has a water feature and is stocked with fish.
A large former agricultural barn is a huge asset to the property and comprises of premium "monarch" stabling within having three looseboxes, with a hay and tack store area, foaling box and general store. There is power and light. This building has a wealth of uses and could (subject to obtaining all necessary consents) have potential to be used for ancillary accommodation to the main house.
The land is accessed via a very useful and level all weather fenced turnout space and divided into two main large paddocks both of which have a water supply, are gently sloping and have natural boundaries and enjoy the best of the views over the Carey Valley with at the bottom an attractive wooded border. The total plot of the property extends to some 8.5 acres.
The following is a quotation from the home owners:
"Having lived at Henford Farm for over 20 years with our animals and children it is an idyllic place. Favourite times include breakfast in the orangery, especially in the morning sun and walking the dogs around the border of our fields. We love to see the fox and deer at play with silence often only broken by the huge variety of bird-life. Special memories are of our wedding marquee overlooking the valley for 200 guests. The tranquillity and privacy of Henford Farm will be greatly missed."
