A charming Grade II listed farmhouse set within stunning tranquil gardens of 1.4 acres.

Mayhews Farm is a beautiful, newly thatched farmhouse providing just under 3,000 square feet of characterful accommodation with a host of original features throughout, including exposed timber beams and a grand inglenook fireplace positioned in the spacious drawing room. Combined with exceptional interiors and its newly appointed garden room, this makes a fine family home nestled within tranquil countryside.

The ground floor comprises a number of reception rooms; the impressive drawing room has a smaller sitting room adjacent which makes an ideal cosy spot for the winter months but could also be used as a great family room or study if desired. The well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room with its impressive Aga and central island allows for convenient access to the dining room as well as the light filled garden room. Of particular note, the garden room stretches across to the drawing room, allowing for a wonderful entertaining area and flow. Also off the kitchen is a useful utility room, pantry and cloakroom. To the other end of the house is the downstairs bedroom which benefits from an en suite and built in wardrobe, perfectly used as a guest wing or home office.

The first floor is conveniently accessed from both ends of the house via two separate staircases. On this floor is the spacious principal bedroom with large en suite, as well as three further bedrooms one of which is en suite, as well as a further shower room. All rooms benefiting from fantastic countryside views.
