Virtual viewing available - A modernised farmhouse in a stunning rural location

Coombe Farm is a stunning family home. The current owners have much improved and extended the house to provide an ideal family and entertaining space. Many of the original features are retained, including exposed wall and ceiling beams.

The full height reception hall with an elegant staircase gives access to a large sitting room with hardwood flooring and a brick inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove. Double doors open into a glazed triple aspect conservatory with French doors to the garden with fabulous valley views. There is also a well-proportioned dual aspect study with a feature corner fireplace. To the rear of the house is the farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room including a large central island with breakfast bar, an Aga and a walk-in larder. Double doors lead to a large dining room with parquet flooring and a large bay picture window and separate doors to fitted utility and boot rooms.

Stairs rise to the first floor where there is a spacious principal bedroom with a fitted dressing room and contemporary en suite shower room; double doors open to a private balcony with stunning countryside views. There are three further well-proportioned double bedrooms and a modern fully-tiled family bathroom with freestanding bath. The second floor is dedicated to a large bedroom with a very spacious neighbouring bathroom with freestanding bath, ideal for a teenage den!

This property has 5.1 acres of land.

Outside

The property is approached through impressive gates and down a long driveway leading to parking for multiple cars. To the right of the drive, and set at a slightly higher level, is the extensive 42 ft outbuilding, comprising a large garage, gym with corner fireplace with wood-burning stove, wine store and workshop. An adjoining log store has internal steps to a first floor store room. External steps rise to a viewing terrace with stunning far-reaching views giving access to a self-contained annexe with open plan kitchen/sitting room and a double bedroom with en suite shower room.

The garden is laid mainly to level and gently-sloping lawn bordered by mature trees and features a garden pond, a paved rear terrace and a separate large raised paved terrace adjoining the gym incorporating a swimming pool, both ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining.
