THE PROPERTY

An impressive stone farmhouse lying in the heart of the village with thatched barn offering potential for conversion subject to obtaining the relevant consents. Home Farm is a handsome and well presented Grade II Listed stone farmhouse dating from the early 17th century. The current owners have been extremely good custodians of the property and have presided over its full renovation. The renovation included a full rewire, together with installation of oil fired central heating and the rebuilding of the handsome chimneys. Many of the original period features remain including exposed beams, stone fireplaces along with oak doors. The current accommodation is laid out over three floors with the adjoining thatched two storey barn offering tremendous potential to convert and either incorporate into the main house or provide independent annexe or business opportunity. Lying across the drive is the former stone stable block which currently provides storage and workshop facilities. A pretty west facing walled garden lies to the rear with rural outlook. THE ACCOMMODATION A brick path leads up to the oak panelled front door which opens into the central entrance hall with original red and black tiled floor. A door leads out to the rear veranda and internal doors offer access to the main reception rooms. The reception hall enjoys a dual aspect with Inglenook fireplace housing Stovax wood burner and currently used as reception room. Both windows have working oak shutters with exposed oak flooring and matching staircase rising to the first floor with cupboard under. The sitting room lies beyond with matching oak flooring and fireplace with Bessemer beam, window with working shutters and window seat. A part glazed door leads through to the west facing oak garden room which enjoys a pretty outlook over the rear garden, with double glazed doors opening onto a raised seating terrace. The dining room lies off the entrance hall and has an impressive Inglenook fireplace with recessed bread oven. The rear hall provides a link through to the cloakroom and kitchen/breakfast room with its vaulted ceiling. The cream four oven Aga has pride of place, with pine units running along the elevation overlooking the rear garden, with Iroko work surface and inset Butler sink. Lying in the corner is a recessed pantry cupboard. The stone cellar is accessed from the dining room and provides the ideal environment for the laying down of wine. FIRST FLOOR Exposed oak flooring runs throughout the first floor with oak staircase leading up to the second floor. The master bedroom is well proportioned with central beam, original stone fireplace, two fitted wardrobes and door through to the en suite bathroom with separate glazed shower cubicle and recessed airing and storage cupboards. Two further double bedrooms lie on this floor with original fireplaces. Bedroom two is currently used as a study with bespoke oak book case running along one wall. SECOND FLOOOR The landing allows access to the family shower room with recessed cupboard to side. Lying either side of the landing are two further bedrooms both with vaulted ceilings. Bedroom four benefits from a dressing room and en suite shower room. OUTBUILDINGS Attached to the farmhouse is a two storey thatched barn currently used as a workshop with original cobbled floor and hay rack. External steps allow access to the first floor loft above. The barn has potential, subject to obtaining the necessary consents, to be converted into additional annexed accommodation, or incorporated into the main house. Running along the northern boundary of the rear garden is the former stone stable block. Internally it has been divided into two with one section plastered and providing an excellent workshop. At the eastern end is a small garage housing the oil tank and providing useful storage facilities. THE GARDEN The front garden is enclosed behind a brick stone wall with clipped lawns edged by a rose border. A brick path dissects the lawn and leads to the front door. To the side of the thatched barn is a five bar field gate opening onto a concrete drive providing off road parking and access to the outbuildings. A veranda runs along the rear of the farmhouse with raised terracotta tiled terrace overlooking the rear walled garden with views beyond and across to fields in the distance. Tiered lawns are edged by well stocked herbaceous borders which provide a profusion of colour during the summer months and the bottom lawn allows access to the boiler/store room. LOCATION Ravenstone is a charming village lying in a quiet rural backwater close to Buckinghamshire's border with both Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire.
