A magnificent modern house in a traditional style incorporating renewable energy technologies with excellent outbuildings and equestrian facilities.
Completed in 2012, Munsgore Farm is a fabulous, modern family home built with pleasing elevations of brick, render and oak under a clay tiled roof, which give the house a traditional appearance; this is enhanced by the magnificent oak-framed porch outside the front door. The rear has a slightly more modern feel with expanses of glass and a master bedroom balcony.
The house was constructed incorporating a range of eco-friendly technologies. Heating and some hot water are from a ground source heat pump; there are solar PV panels and solar thermal panels and a 6,000 litre rainwater harvesting tank. The property currently attracts renewable heat incentive payments of around £5,000 per annum, and these payments would be transferred to be made direct to a new owner.
Internally the accommodation is bright and spacious and has some luxurious touches. A Sonos sound system serves the main rooms, the master bedroom and bathroom; there is a Lutron mood lighting system in the drawing room and kitchen.
The hall leads to a dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room. This is well fitted with bespoke cabinets with granite work tops, and a range of high quality appliances, including induction hob, twin ovens, steam, microwave and dishwasher. Beyond is the utility room, boiler room and a cloakroom. There are three main reception rooms, including the 30 foot drawing room with vaulted ceiling and all-round windows with three sets of French Windows and a wood burning stove. Beyond are a guest suite of bedroom and bathroom and gym/ study.
An oak staircase rises to the first floor, where the flooring is predominantly oak. The master suite is spectacular with a wraparound balcony, dressing room and bathroom with central double bath with Jacuzzi and walk-in shower. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The property is approached from the lane initially over a private road and thence through an impressive curved gateway surmounted by lanterns. There is a large parking and turning area with access to the double garage and carport. Lawns lie to the south of the house, with a yew hedge marking the boundary with the road. To the rear are a terrace and further garden beneath a steep bank. The equestrian facilities and outbuildings are about 30 metres east of the house and comprise an L-shaped range of timber stables with eight boxes, opening onto a concrete yard. Adjacent is a newly refurbished steel portal barn of about 1,300 square feet, and behind this is a sand school (in need of some attention). A drive leads behind the buildings and gives access to the paddocks. These are currently fenced into five main fields, with further subdivisions and amount to about 10 acres of the total of 13 acres comprising the entire property.
