About the property

THE PROPERTY
A fine early Victorian farmhouse, beautifully presented, set in a rural location overlooking countryside. Bark Hill Farmhouse is built of red brick construction in the 1860's under tiled roofs. The previous owners extended in the 1980's offering more flexible accommodation and the present owners have replastered, redecorated and put in new double glazing throughout. The charming well equipped kitchen with French clay tiled flooring (taken from an old Chateau) and oak effect wall and floor units offers good space for cuisine and dining with views overlooking fields. The original chimney breast houses the electric range cooker (negotiable) and there is a large built-in larder. This leads to the utility room with fitted units, electric hob, space for American style fridge/freezer and door to rear garden.
The spacious hall way with laminated grey painted flooring leads to all the reception rooms as well as the cloakroom/shower room which has a new suite and tiling. There are two good sized comfortable reception rooms, one has a free standing woodburning stove and the other a brick surround fireplace with brick hearth and woodburner, both offering a variety of uses. The hall leads to the conservatory with double doors to the garden. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, three doubles and a single. The single room has been fitted out with cupboards and drawers ideal for a nursery or child's bedroom. Two of the double bedrooms have ensuite showers which have been refurbished in the last three years and the main bedroom has built-in wardrobes.

OUTSIDE
The house is set in gardens and grounds extending to approximately 4 acres which is split into 2 paddocks with post and rail fencing. There are 4 stables with tack room, concrete fronted apron with access to the road. There are remnants of a pole barn with partial concrete block walls, ideal if you wish to add to the stabling or extra storage. There is a timber field shelter in the second paddock.
A timber five bar gate allows access to the gravel parking area and double garage with accommodation above and behind, names Thornton Lodge. This was built in 2005, timber clad with breeze block construction and tiled roof. To the rear is a kitchen and cloakroom. External timber stairs takes you up to the room above which has ensuite shower room, storage cupboards, timber flooring and TV aerial, offering a variety of uses. There is potential for an annexe subject to the appropriate planning consent.

The garden encircles the property and is laid mostly to lawn and mature shrubbery. There is a fenced orchard and vegetable patch. There are glorious views from every aspect.

SERVICES
Mains water and electricity. Septic Tank, which is serviced annually (Ntech). Oil fired central heating.
