Set within beautifully maintained gardens and grounds, Ash Farm is a stunning family house, creatively and skillfully newly constructed to create a period-style property, using reclaimed period materials and combining rustic charm with modern luxuries. The house is equipped with under-floor heating, a Rako lighting system and a Sonos audio system. All technology, including the security entrance gates, entry phone system and CCTV, may be controlled remotely by mobile phone. The house enjoys a private setting and the spacious accommodation, combined with the detached cottage, stable block and barn, is perfect for a family that enjoys entertaining and an outdoor lifestyle. Internally, the house is rich in exposed beams and boasts many interesting features, with many of the rooms taking full advantage of the outlook over paddocks and countryside beyond.
The accommodation enjoys a sense of light and space, with the imaginative use of glass not only flooding the house with natural light but also exploiting the wonderful outlook. The immaculately presented accommodation is arranged over two floors and of particular note is the impressive multifunctional kitchen/breakfast room with its dramatic beamed vaulted ceiling, ancient limestone floor and wall of sliding patio doors that open the room out to the parterre garden. The kitchen area is comprehensively fitted with a sleek range of units, a large central island with an integral breakfast bar, and integrated Miele appliances. There is also a spacious seating/breakfast area with a contemporary fireplace, perfect for relaxation whilst enjoying the view. A pantry, located off the kitchen area, is fitted with extensive shelving and three wine chillers.
The ground floor is entered via a sizeable reception hall featuring an attractive limestone floor with under-floor heating and full-height sliding glass doors that frame the lovely view across the grounds. To the right of the hall lies the dining room and adjoining drawing room, whilst to the left there is a sizeable study and a family room, all of which showcase some of the property’s charming features including limestone floors, fireplaces and exposed beams. The remainder of the ground floor is host to a utility room and a cloakroom.
On the first floor is the impressive master bedroom with a beamed vaulted ceiling, a fully fitted en suite dressing room and a luxurious en suite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms, two of which are en suite, and a family bathroom.
In addition to the main house, there is ancillary accommodation in the form of a detached cottage comprising a kitchen/breakfast room, a bedroom and a bathroom. There is also a separate office/playroom and a gym, located at the side of the carport.
The property is approached via electrically operated gates opening onto a driveway that sweeps around to the parking area and a 3-car open-fronted carport, office and gym. There is also a separate entrance through electrically operated gates to access the stable yard, cottage, barn and paddocks. Extending to about 9.5 acres, the gardens and grounds complement the house perfectly and have been creatively designed to provide year-round interest, combining landscaped gardens, a parterre garden with a magnificent ancient olive tree as a central feature, and paddocks. The gardens are undoubtedly an outstanding attribute and offer plenty of opportunities for seasonal entertaining and relaxation.
For the equestrian enthusiast, and in addition to the paddocks, there is a stable block housing five stables, a good-size feed store and tack room. A beautifully maintained barn with a beamed vaulted ceiling, is situated close by and offers the potential for a wide variety of uses.
