We have pleasure in offering to the market this truly individual detached period former farm house which has been significantly extended and reconfigured over the years to create a spacious family orientated home, extending to in excess of 3000 sq ft and situated in an idyllic location almost equi-distant between the highly regarded villages of Car Colston and Scarrington, overlooking fields to all sides as well as the property's own substantial plot which approaches 7.5 acres in total.

Over the years the property has seen a significant level of renovation combining elements of character expected with a more traditional home with the benefits of contemporary living and includes a stunning open plan living/dining kitchen with bespoke units and windows to three sides, undoubtedly becoming the heart of this versatile home. In addition there are four further reception rooms as well as a generous utility with large walk-in pantry and cloakroom.

The spacious initial entrance hall with attractive staircase rises to a galleried landing above which leads to four double bedrooms, the master suite being particularly impressive comprising initial walk-through dressing room, large double bedroom at the rear with superb open views and ensuite bathroom. In addition there is a spacious split level family bathroom beautifully appointed with high quality fixtures and fittings.

The property is particularly versatile in its layout and would suit families looking for a spacious individual home with a fantastic level of outdoor space including large formal garden with plunge pool and delightful aspect across the property's own grassed paddocks, making it an ideal equestrian opportunity.

To the easterly elevation is a secondary electric gated entrance which leads on to a substantial concrete crew yard with a large modern barn which is utilised as stabling with adjacent electronic horse walker and manege at the rear. Although the area is currently geared up for equestrian use, this vast space could subject to necessary consents, be utilised for a variety of purposes, ideal for those running a business from home requiring a good level of outdoor space, large storage areas eg car sales, dog kennels or cattery, situated in a semi-rural location but still within easy reach of local villages and amenities.

Overall viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate the unique opportunity on offer with its excellent level of accommodation, wonderful location and fantastic level of outdoor space.
