Apple Pies and Autumn Skies

Filed under: Latest News — Four Communications @ 4:03 pm

As we enter Harvest, farmers across the country are working from dawn ‘til dusk to gather in their crops before the winter frosts commence. However, for amateur agriculturists, this can be one of the most rewarding times of the year to be the proud owner of a glorious British orchard. Pies, crumbles and cider on tap, the rewards are sweet, comforting and just, for a hard day’s toil. Below, Jackson-Stops & Staff has collated some of the most impressive homes with orchards from across the country.

Crossland Fosse, in Kempston, Bedfordshire, is a grand seven bedroom Victorian manor, built in 1889, with a pristine gated orchard that can be viewed from a sun lounger by the pool. The appearance of the house has changed very little in the last 120 years, with the interiors retaining many Victorian features, including a grand staircase with galleried landing, heavy oak-panelled doors and decorative moulded ceilings in most principal rooms. The house includes a master bedroom suite, six further bedrooms, gym, wine cellar, folly and apple store, swimming pool, grass paddocks and a hard tennis court. Although the exterior of the house has changed little since construction, the interior has been refurbished to very high standards, including a zoned heating system and an integral sound system in principal rooms. Crossland Fosse is on the market for £2,850,000 through our Woburn Office (tel: 01525 290641). For more details, click here.

Lantallack is a historic, Grade-II listed house, near Landrake, south east Cornwall, with a range of barns, delightful gardens, stunning views and a gated orchard with a wide variety of young and mature fruit trees. The property includes a master bedroom suite, guest suite, two further bedrooms, heated swimming pool, immaculately maintained gardens and two detached self-contained cottages. Lantallack is set in an Area of Outstanding Beauty, as well as being close to the south east Cornish coast, the South West Coast Path and Whitsand Bay.

Goodmans House, near Membury, Devon, is a Georgian country house with a sloping orchard and gardens, cosily nestled in the rolling Devonshire foothills.

The house includes a master bedroom, four further bedrooms, heated pool, pond, lawned gardens and three paddocks. Goodmans House benefits from being close to Taunton, the county town of Somerset and a number of excellent schools situated throughout the surrounding area. Goodmans House is on the market for £1,650,000 through our Exeter Office (tel: 01823 325144) For more details, click here.

It would be difficult to write about properties with orchards without mentioning Somerset, home to many of the UK’s largest cider distilleries and a seemingly infinite amount of independent manufacturers. East Lambrook Farm, near South Petherton, Somerset, is a Grade-II Listed village house with a detached cottage and delightful gardens and grounds, including a small orchard, set in about two acres. Unspoilt bymodern additions , the house still retains many original features including open fireplaces, exposed timbers and flagstone floors. The property consists of four bedrooms, a detached cottage, greenhouse, hard tennis tourt, garden and former pigsties. East Lambrook Farm is on the market for £850,000 through our Sherborne Office (tel: 01935 810141). For more details, click here.

Sunset boulevards

Filed under: Latest News — Four Communications @ 9:45 am

As we enter autumn, we are reminded that the summer is not eternal. The sun hangs lower in the sky, the days are getting shorter and an extra layer is now necessary when we spend time outside in the evenings. However, this time of year remains special, with glorious autumnal sunrises and sunsets to enjoy while the weather is still warm enough to enjoy time outdoors. Britain’s iconic coasts and secret beaches provide the most picturesque locations, from which to take in these scenes, with the special quality of light inspiring many artists throughout the years. With the mellow mists of autumn approaching, we have chosen a selection of our favourite seafront properties, which offer the ideal vantage point to observe this idyllic change in the seasons.

Smuggler’s Cottage, in Smuggler’s Cove, Cornwall, is a stunning property situated directly on the water and nestled away in a sheltered cove. It consists of a winter and summer cottage both with breath-taking views that extend out to sea and across the bay to the nearby fishing port of Portreath. Both cottages are modern, cool and cosy and draw in an extraordinary amount of natural light, making this property the perfect seaside get-away, regardless of the time of year. With a combined total of seven bedrooms, a kitchen, two large terraces, a workshop and six reception rooms, Smuggler’s Cottage makes for the ideal house to host friends and family. The property is on the market at a guide price of £3,000,000 with our Truro office (tel.: 01872 261160). For more information please click here.

Tamarisk, a five bedroom house in Aldwick, West Sussex, draws on colonial influences, evoking the setting of a Caribbean plantation. In beautifully landscaped gardens, with a large beachfront terrace for entertaining, just metres from the sea, Tamarisk is the perfect spot for hosting late summer barbecues and entertaining guests. With large French windows in every sea-facing room, modern décor and bleached oak floors, the house remains light at all times of the year, perfect for summer and as a winter retreat. The property is on the market at a guide price of £1,650,000 with our Chichester office (tel.: 01243 786316). For more information please click here.

With a splendid central staircase, lavish gardens, grand fireplaces and a conservatory, Wylam House is definitely for those looking for a flavour of nostalgia. Despite its heritage, the house is fitted with a modern kitchen and luxury bathrooms to cater for 21st century comforts. The house has six bedrooms, a drawing room, media room and a total of about 1.5 acres of land. The property is on the market at a guide price of £1,850,000 with our Exeter office (tel.: 01392 214222). For more information please click here.
