Norman Farm is a Grade II listed classic Berkshire farmhouse which has been given a contemporary twist by the owners. It has been fully renovated and has been designed for a family who enjoy an active, outdoor lifestyle. The classic features and modern extensions give a wonderful juxtaposition and create a unique house, full of character which is fun to live in and makes the most of the wonderful west-facing setting and views over the land. There is planning permission to extend the farmhouse and create further living accomdation and additional bedrooms. Details of which can be found with the selling agents.
The farmhouse comprises sitting room, dining room, modern glazed entrance hall and a fabulous kitchen / living area. The house has been designed to give the feel of outdoor living. Large glazed areas give panoramic views over the land and the kitchen leads directly out onto a large outdoor area for sitting and relaxing. There is an outdoor pizza oven.
The heated swimming pool adjoins the sitting area and even extends into the kitchen to allow swimmers to enter the water from inside.
The Farmhouse has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Beneath the kitchen is a large cellar with sauna, steam room and underground tunnel which connects to the barns (the tunnel is partially completed). There is planning permission for a two storey extension to create two additional bedrooms and increase the size of the drawing room.
Immediately to the west of the farmhouse is a large decked area which surrounds the swimming pool and jacuzzi. There are two areas for outdoor dining, as well as a brick pizza oven. The decked area leads down to lawned gardens, the tennis court and onto a vegetable and flower garden with raised beds. The lawned garden runs down to a pond with a pontoon.
This property has 4 acres of land.
