A detached, 4 bedroom period property with a range of small outbuildings and approx. 2 acres of gardens and paddock located centrally within the pretty village of Membury.

The Property
Haddon Fields is a handsome former farmhouse which is believed to have origins dating back some 200 years. The property comes to the market for the first time in over 20 years and has been lovingly maintained and improved over the course of our owners occupation, most notably replacing the windows with sash-style double glazed units and extending the stable block, adding an attractive double carport with storage space above.
The property offers some very well proportioned reception rooms, including a good-sized dining room, dual aspect sitting room with open fire and French doors to the garden, and a large study also with doors to the garden. This room could be used as a second sitting room or ground floor bedroom if required. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a country-style kitchen/breakfast room with 4-oven Aga, utility room with wine cellar, laundry room and cloakroom.
Upstairs and accessed from the large landing is the family bathroom and 4 bedrooms; 3 of which are doubles with fitted wardrobes. The principal bedroom also has the benefit of an ensuite bathroom with corner bath and separate shower cubicle. There is also a sizeable attic space (approx. 30' x 25') which is mostly boarded with ladder access.

Outside
Haddon Fields is slightly set back from the lane with a pretty front garden, bounded by a natural stone wall with central pathway leading to the front porch. The ample parking and turning space is accessed from the lane through a 5-bar gate into a courtyard-style area surrounded by some very useful stores/outbuildings including a workshop, storage shed, double stable block, tool shed and double carport with storage space above.
The grounds at Haddon Fields are delightful and stocked with mature and leafy borders, providing much colour and interest. To the North side of the property is a productive vegetable patch, greenhouse (with power) and small orchard. To the West is a charming, private terrace; a lovely spot to sit and enjoy the afternoon and evening sun. The formal grounds extend into a paddock of approx. 1.1 acres with separate access from the lane.

Location
Haddon Fields is a rare find, offering grounds extending to approximately 2 acres, and yet, located in the heart of the pretty village of Membury within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
