About This Property

A fantastic 17th Century Farmhouse with a range of outbuildings and attractive gardens. Situated in a desirable hamlet and set within a plot totalling approx. 5.78 acres. No onward chain.

The Farmhouse
Coultings Farm is a substantial farmhouse which mainly dates back to the 17th century, constructed with rendered and colour-washed elevations under a tiled roof. The property would benefit from a degree of improvement and offers spacious accommodation, with a wealth of charm and character.

A formal gravel drive leads to the farmhouse and on entering the property, the entrance hall with tiled floor and wood panelling, provides access into a sitting room on the left with cross beamed ceiling and stone fireplace and on the right is a formal dining room with woodburner and quarry tiled floor. A door opens into a large utility with flagstone floor and additional staircase rising up to the first floor and an external door leading out to the back. In addition, the dining room also gives access into a useful study, ideal for those working from home and with French doors opening out to the rear. At the end of the hall is a shower room and external door opening out to the rear garden. A well-fitted kitchen/breakfast complete with Aga, runs along the back of the property and flows nicely from the hallway into a fantastic conservatory which takes full advantage of the beautiful gardens. The ground floor is completed with an additional room leading off the kitchen which could easily be a 2nd study or playroom.

An attractive turning staircase rises up to the first floor where you will find 4 good size bedrooms, three of which have wardrobes/cupboards. There is useful eaves storage on the landing, along with an airing cupboard. A family bathroom completes the accommodation.

This sizeable farmhouse is further enhanced by a range of outbuildings that provide scope for conversion, subject to planning. The outbuildings consist of, a two storey workshop which is attached to the main house and would make an ideal annexe. There are two indoor stables and a double garage. A rear courtyard leads out to the east driveway with five bar gate, giving additional access to the land, along with a substantial timber broiler house, which would lend itself to a number of uses and offers great potential. There are also two open fronted barns with breezeblock to the rear and corrugated roof.

The Gardens
The formal gardens are beautifully manicured and lie to the west of the house, approached over a cattle grid. The gravel driveway leads to a lawned turning circle in front of the house. On the far side of the driveway is 'The Shrubbery', an area of garden laid to lawn and interspersed with a variety of trees, shrubs and plants. Gates open into the paddock. There is also an area which has been previously utilised as a productive vegetable garden. At the rear of the property is an attractive enclosed and mainly walled garden with a paved terrace adjoining the house. There are an abundance of well stocked flower beds including a variety of beautiful roses.

The Land
The pastureland lies mainly to the south and provides an ideal paddock for the keeping of a horse or ponies.

Additional Paddock
There is an additional 3.7 acre paddock a short distance from the property, which is available by separate negotiation.

An early viewing is essential to fully appreciate this fantastic property offering so much potential and situated in a lovely setting. No onward chain.

The additional paddock would be subject to an overage clause whereby, should planning consent be granted for one or more dwellings, or the land is required to access an adjoining development, then the vendors or their successors in title will be entitled to 30% of any resulting uplift in value for a period of 25 years.
