A beautifully restored and extended Grade II house situated in a picturesque and tranquil rural position.
Dean Farm House is a beautiful Grade II country house, which is thought to have origins from the 15th century, with later additions. More recently the current owners have sympathetically renovated and extended the house whilst retaining the numerous period features, and the property now provides interesting and well-arranged accommodation over three floors.
A particular feature of the house is a new architect designed kitchen/breakfast room extension. This striking addition has been clad externally in larch and has bi-folding doors leading to a sheltered paved sitting area overlooking the rear garden. The kitchen/ breakfast room is filled with natural light from a central roof lantern and has a range of bespoke hand painted cupboards with flamed black granite work surfaces. The centre island features a DeDietrich induction hob, a teppanyaki griddle and a concealed rising extractor. Other integrated appliances include two Siemens ovens and a Bosch dishwasher.
The porcelain tiled floor has underfloor heating and continues from the kitchen/breakfast room through into the utility room. The dining room has a magnificent inglenook fireplace with a bressumer beam above and is inset with a wood burning stove which has the ability to supplement the central heating. The sitting room also has a wood burning stove which is inset within the chimney breast. A study and a boot room complete the accommodation on the ground floor.
On the first floor the principal bedroom has a spacious en suite bathroom and there are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. On the second floor is a guest bedroom with an en suite shower room and a magnificent vaulted and beamed ceiling.
Other features include oak latch doors, new wood framed lattice lead windows and numerous period features.
Dean Farm House is approached from a minor country lane and via a long private shared track. A split wooden five bar gate gives access to a wide gravel path leading through the front garden to the house. Adjacent to the entrance gate is an area for parking and the heritage style garage which has a studio room above and a covered area to the side. The sheltered and pretty garden is predominately surrounded by mature hedging and mainly laid to lawn with some well stocked and colourful beds and there are several mature oaks. To one side of the rear garden is the kitchen garden with a timber potting shed and greenhouse. To the end of the garden is a fenced orchard area with a wild life pond. A short distance from the rear of the house is a large workshop/store. Bordering the gardens is the property’s paddock with stables. The paddock has separate access from the track via a wooden five bar gate. From the paddock there are some stunning far reaching views over the surrounding unspoilt countryside.
The gardens and grounds at Dean Farm House provide a magical setting for this special period property.
