Full Details

Crocketts Farm is a unique detached residence, designed and built in 1997 alongside and adjoining a cluster of period barns, all linked internally, one of which now has planning permission (19/02320/FUL) to be converted into a separate, three bedroom detached dwelling house, which could be sold independently as a project or, as a finished home. The main house itself enjoys a superb level of accommodation, ideally geared towards a growing family. The outside space also supports this demographic of buyer with large formal gardens, paddock and an additional parcel of land serviced by a newly installed yard with stabling. In all 8.68 acres or thereabouts.

Set back from the lane beyond a generous frontage, you enter a large gravelled courtyard parking area serving the house and ancillary buildings. Through a portico entrance, you enter an inviting dining hall with flagstone flooring, dual aspect windows, open fireplace and oak staircase to the upper floor. The Impressive drawing room leads off, enjoys a glazed bay window set to rear and feature inglenook fireplace with inset log burner and flagstone hearth. A useful family room with oak flooring and further fireplace has a semi-open plan aspect to a welcoming farmhouse kitchen, complete with Nobel range and handmade, solid wood door fronts. A useful utility room, further reception room and inner hall then lead on to an impressive vaulted gymnasium / recreation room, serviced by its own kitchen and WC - an ideal space for work or recreational purposes. An interlinking door leads through to a further double height vaulted barn, complete with three sets of opening doors to front, a large store room and first floor bedroom.

Planning permission has been granted to convert this space into a fully self-contained, separate three bedroom dwelling house, providing additional ancillary accommodation or the option to separate and sell on as a project or finished house, further details of which are available upon request.

To the first floor of the main house, a gallery landing provides access to each of the five double bedrooms and family bathroom. The master suite boasts great proportions, an equipped dressing room and full en-suite bath/shower room. Bedrooms two and three also enjoy en-suite facilities helping enhance the versatility of accommodation.

Externally, the property sits well within its mature 2.56 acre plot, with formal gardens surrounding the rear and side elevations. Post and rail fencing divides the gardens and paddock and there are mature interspersed specimen trees throughout. A separate gravel driveway leads through a five bar gate to a enclosed yard, accompanied by 1 x 12x16 stable, 2 x 12x12 stables, 1 x 12x12 tack room, 1 x 12x12 machinery store, 1 x 12x16 hay/feed store and 1 x 12x12 open fronted washbox. There is also power, lighting and an alarm installed. An additional area of enclosed land sits adjacent to the property, extending to approximately 6.35 acres, making this an ideal equestrian facility. In all approximately 8.68 acres.
