Muttons Farm House is a beautiful and stylishly presented Grade II listed period farmhouse, set in delightful ornamental gardens and ground totalling just over 1 acre. The original part of the house is understood to date from 1780, with a subsequent extension sympathetically added to provide further accommodation over two floors. The well-proportioned accommodation offers great flexibility with the potential for 5 bedrooms to the first floor and a further study/bedroom to the ground floor. The house is complimented by truly delightful and well-designed gardens surrounding the house on 3 sides.
On entering the house, the hallway features original flag stones, giving a sense of the history of the old farm house. The interior successfully combines this character with modern living, having been substantially modernised in recent years. The bright, triple aspect sitting room features exposed beams and a large open-fire. The large, open-plan kitchen/breakfast room, leading to the dining room, is a great space for entertaining, featuring a stylish Efitti kitchen with De Dietrich appliances and a gas-fuelled AGA. The generous dining area offers a pair of drinks fridges set into a range of tall cupboards that reflect the style of the kitchen. In addition on the ground floor there is a rear hallway which provides access to the gardens and a cloakroom, as well as study which could be utilised as a ground floor bedroom.
To the first floor, the principal bedroom suite comprises a dual aspect bedroom and a bespoke dressing room (with fittings from The English Wardrobe Company), linked via an en-suite bathroom which features a free-standing bath, shower and twin sink units. There are 3 further, well-proportioned bedrooms to the first floor, along with 2 further family bathrooms.
Muttons Farm House is approached through electrically operated timber gates leading to a large gravelled driveway flanked by a low stone wall to one side and the tennis court to the other. The driveway leads through a stone archway to the detached double garage and workshop, as well as a kitchen garden.
The main gardens are laid out to form a number of areas, separated by low stone walls and planting. This creates a garden of great interest, featuring a formal lawn with extremely well-stocked and mature flower beds, a rose garden with ornamental box hedging and a seating area, along with a small orchard. Beyond this area of formal garden at the rear of the house is a more open, wild garden, creating a meadow effect. This extends around two sides of the property s boundary, giving a great sense of the rural setting of the region. The gardens are an integral feature of the property as a whole and must be seen to be fully appreciated.
