June Farm is an exceptional Grade II listed country property originating from the 17th century. The farmhouse and barn have been fully restored and modernised with an early twentieth century link with a dramatic sweeping roof said to be by Sir Edwin Lutyens. The shape of the house forms a delightful walled courtyard with ornamental rose gardens and a carp pond. This can be accessed by no less than five points from the main house and there is a gate onto the lane. The house in its current form provides characterful accommodation and an enormously comfortable family home.
Internally, there is fabulous entertaining space throughout the interconnecting drawing room, dining hall and conservatory.
The dining hall is double height and features a wonderful viewing gallery and all of these rooms take full advantage of the stunning southwesterly views. The current owners have extended this side of the house by incorporating the beautiful conservatory and extending the billiard room (and master bedroom above). The octagonal study is wonderfully unusual and links the main section of the ground floor to what could be an entirely independent wing including four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a kitchenette and sitting/play room. All of the bedrooms in the main section of the house are ensuite and the master bedroom suite in particular is a spectacular asset. There is access from the master suite directly into the garden close the pool area.
Of particular note are the exceptionally good ceilings heights throughout, extensive period features including stained glass windows, oak floors and stone fireplaces. There are few properties of this calibre in the area and the fact that the current owners’ have remained for over 40 years is testament to this.
The gardens and grounds of June Farm are as much a feature of the property as the house. The immaculately tended gardens are fully irrigated and mainly laid to lawn with borders of mature shrubs and trees. A curved ha-ha separates the gardens from the paddocks. To the south of the house, well-tended areas include a very well sheltered swimming pool with pool house (including a changing area, shower room and fully fitted kitchen) and external seating area. A gym, hobby room, vegetable garden, greenhouse and tennis court are all logically placed and allow for privacy and independent ‘rooms’ within the gardens.
The equestrian centre has been extensively developed by the current owners over recent years and would rival many small commercial setups. The land is divided into seven post and rail paddocks with another small paddock adjacent to the secondary access from the lane.
