The property occupies a delightful established plot which approaches two thirds of an acre, accessed via a pair of double gates leading onto a sweeping driveway with generous established gardens running to three sides offering an excellent degree of privacy and delightful open aspects.
Peacock Farmhouse itself is very archetypal of its period having attractive double fronted facade with central porch and the original farmhouse having been substantially extended to create a considerably generous level of accommodation and includes three separate annexe areas which have been utilised for bed & breakfast facilities, but could also potentially be ideal for extended families, teenagers or elderly relatives.
The internal accommodation extends to six main double bedrooms including the versatile annexe areas, with three of these benefitting from ensuite facilities as well as a generous modernised family bathroom and ground floor shower room. There are up to six reception areas which again offer a great deal of versatility with regards to the layout, all offering their own individual character with the period part of the house having attractive fireplaces and heavily beamed ceilings.
In addition there is a spacious farmhouse style kitchen which is open plan to a dining area and in turn a rear entrance hall with high pitched ceiling and exposed brick elevation, this links out into both an attractive landscaped courtyard garden and also the annexe wing to the north. The second two double bedroom-two ensuite annexe is accessed externally but potentially could be adapted to link directly into the main house should this be required.
Peacock Farmhouse is a fascinating individual period home which would suit large families looking for an extensive and versatile dwelling within this highly regarded Vale setting and viewing is highly recommended to appreciate both the location and wealth of accommodation on offer.
