The Property

West Farm is a beautifully appointed farmhouse which has undergone extensive renovations by the current owners. The property has been well designed, sympathetically blending the period features of exposed beams and stone walling with a more modern day feel. The high specification of the fixtures and fittings provide a luxurious atmosphere with underfloor heating and generous accommodation all within beautiful rural surroundings.

The main everyday access leads from the parking area to the stunning kitchen which is fitted with a range of painted units with complementary granite work tops. The integral appliances include a gas hob, two ovens, dishwasher, double Belfast sink along with space for a fridge freezer. The drawing room leads off the kitchen with steps leading up to this impressive and spacious room. Flag stone flooring, exposed stone work and beams all provide elements of charm with an external door giving access to the gardens at the front. A wood burning stove sits to one end with an inglenook fireplace to the other. The drawing room opens up into a relaxed sitting room at the rear of the property, with a more recent extension enhancing the space with delightful outlook over the gardens to the rear and French doors leading out. A cloakroom and storage cupboard are situated off the sitting room with steps leading down to the utility room, which can also be accessed from the kitchen. The utility room extends the storage space provided from the kitchen, as well as incorporating space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Stairs lead from the sitting room to the naturally bright landing with the bedroom accommodation off. The elegant master suite sits to the front of the property and offers a beautifully tranquil space with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, extensive fitted wardrobes and a charming en-suite bathroom. The bathroom is fitted with a walk in shower with rainfall shower head, bath with wall mounted television to one end, dual wash hand basin set on a wooden vanity unit and WC. A guest bedroom benefits from en-suite shower room facilities with an adjacent dressing room. Two further double bedrooms, both with fitted units, are served by the family bathroom fitted with a bath with shower over, wash hand basin and WC.

A detached stone outbuilding sits within the grounds and extends the space offered by the main house. To the ground floor is a generous space currently used as a gymnasium with television room and bar above. A well fitted drying room is located next door, with a wealth of storage units and hanging space.


West Farm is approached via electric wooden gates leading onto the block paved driveway, providing space for numerous vehicles. A stone built outhouse sits to the front of the property which lends itself to conversion to a home office. An enchanting garden is located to the front of the property, enclosed within a stone wall. To the rear of the property is an extensive area laid to lawn with block paved patio adjacent to the property, ideally situated for al-fresco dining and entertaining. A raised sun terrace has been recently incorporated, providing a tranquil spot to enjoy the surroundings.

A generous barn with workshop provides ample storage whilst a further barn is well equipped with eight stables, tack room, kitchen and WC. A further, wooden clad, stable block and field shelter are located within the grounds along with a recently installed outdoor arena. The land is currently split into three paddocks with a quad track towards the far boundary.
