Enjoying stunning, far reaching rural views, this truly handsome former farmhouse has been exquisitely extended and refurbished to an exacting standard whilst mindfully considering its heritage features. The spacious accommodation includes three reception rooms, four double bedrooms, each with en suite facilities, a superb breakfast kitchen, adjoining utility and control room. Parking is provided for several cars and an integrated double garage is accessed via a private driveway.
To the true front of the property, an open porch of stone lancet design shelters a composite door with partial glazing. The inner hallway has an exposed stone wall and a stone flagged floor leading to the original front door. Oak wall and ceiling beams and curve-edged walls reflect both the age and original character which has been retained throughout. An oak spindle staircase rises and turns to the first floor and a cupboard beneath houses the under-floor heating controls.
Just off, the comfortably spacious dual aspect L-shaped lounge, with oak flooring, also has an expanse of exposed original beams and rafters and a row of nine mullion windows to one side and two further windows to the front giving far reaching rural views. Taking centre stage in the room is a beautiful sandstone and brick ingle encasing a multi-fuel burning stove which rests on a stone flagged hearth. For evening ambience there is pendant lighting, a television point and a thermostatic control to add a little further warmth if needed.
The oak flooring continues beneath the door which leads directly through to the dining room and has three deep set windows to the rear with evening illumination provided by two pendant lights and recessed downlights. The room also has a television point and opens to the stone flagged rear hallway with a door to the inner hall and a further angled doorway with glazed side panels which opens to the driveway.
Also off the hallway, the beautifully appointed and spacious dual aspect dining kitchen has mullion windows to the rear and a large window to the front. The area is further lit by recessed downlights which showcase the wood-panelled walls to the dining area and also the shaker-style kitchen in shades resembling dark lava and natural cashmere. Set within the Silestone counter is a stainless-steel Franke sink whilst a further Franke sink with boiling water tap is incorporated into the island unit which also features a pop-up power point. Culinary facilities are provided by a range cooker whilst integrated appliances include a microwave oven, automatic dishwasher and wine-chiller. There is space for an American-style fridge freezer.
With kitchen-complementary units, the adjacent stone-flagged utility room has a Belfast sink, space for an automatic washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a window and door which opens to the rear and the high ceilings have an inset Velux window. A room off, also with stone-flagged floor, has two windows to the front and houses the under-floor heating controls, the heat pump and hot water tank. This room could also become a useful office area, and a loft access point leads to a spacious loft which could be used as a playroom.
From the utility area, steps lead up to the games room with a semi-vaulted ceiling having two Velux windows to the rear with further light filtering through a window and French doors also to the rear. A door from here leads to the integral garage. This area could easily be converted to self-contained accommodation.
The first-floor landing with exposed rafters and a spindle balustrade has a window and Velux window above, flooding the area with natural light. All the bedrooms are spacious and bright and each offer an opportunity to form the master bedroom or guest suite. One such example is a charming bedroom with semi-vaulted ceiling with a window to the front enjoying rural views. Adjacent is a fully-tiled bathroom, with exposed beam and window to the rear, comprising a shower cubicle, ellipse stand-alone bath tub, wash basin and w.c. There is also a heated rail for warming towels.
A further large double bedroom also has exposed rafters, Velux window and further window to the front with amazing views from the bed space, pendant lighting and having a control panel for heating. A door leads to the fully tiled Jack-and-Jill shower room with double-sized shower and screen, vanity set wash hand basin with monobloc tap, close-coupled w.c. and heated towel rail. On the other side of this bathroom is a further delightful double bedroom with a window to the side and pendant lighting.
Off the landing, a step up gives way to a further spacious double room with three Velux windows to the side and French doors to a Juliette balcony. There is a combination of pendant and wall lights plus over-bed lighting and there is also a wall-mounted television point. A door leads to the exposed-beam, fully-tiled wet-room style en suite having a walk-in shower with glass screen and a niche for toiletries, twin vanity set wash hand basins, close-coupled w.c. plus a shaver point, heated towel rail and inset spotlights.
The property is approached via a lengthy, private driveway to an enclave of four equally appealing properties, including South Miry Fold Farm. Continuing through a pillared opening in the wall and fence enclosed property, the driveway provides parking for several cars and gives way to the integral double garage with power and light.
The original frontage of the property has a stone-flagged sun terrace stretching the breadth of the farmhouse and provides an idyllic al fresco dining area overlooking the lawn with a newly planted hedge boundary to the far reaching and spectacular views beyond, framed by the limbs of three beautifully mature trees.
