RENOVATED PERIOD FARMHOUSE WITH ANCILLARY ACCOMMODATION AND EXCELLENT EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES SET IN APPROXIMATELY 6.7 ACRES .................... Oak Farm is a magnificent period farmhouse, which has been fastidiously modernised throughout, together with a detached annexe, outdoor heated swimming pool with al-fresco entertaining area, detached office, excellent equestrian facilities and a range of outbuildings, all set within its grounds of about 6.7 acres. Oak Farm, which dates to the 18th Century is of great style and character and in recent years has undergone a first class renovation programme by the current owners with uncompromised attention to detail. One of the particular features is the wonderful extension, which houses the superb kitchen/breakfast/family room - very much the "hub of the home" having been intelligently and beautifully appointed with a range of high quality snow white quartz worktops, fitted kitchen furniture and a comprehensive array of Miele integrated appliances including an AGA oven. There is a charming sitting room, with a further reception room that leads to the delightful drawing room with multi-fuel woodburning stove. Completing the ground floor accommodation is the welcoming entrance hall, shower room and utility with a separate laundry room. To the first floor there are four bedrooms served by three luxurious bathrooms - all fitted to superb standard with a combination of Villeroy and Boch and Burlington sanitary ware. Many of the rooms enjoy a bright, open aspect with beautiful views over the property's grounds and beyond to open countryside. The current owners have carefully retained the fine traditional period features including a wealth of exposed beams and timbers and a fine Inglenook fireplace to the sitting room to create a perfect fusion of characterful accommodation with 21st century modern technologies. The annexe is a great asset for the main house given the variety of possibilities it can offer to the potential purchaser. Located conveniently just to the north of the main house and is a first class dwelling in its own right. The accommodation comprises: large living room with kitchenette, two bedrooms served by two luxurious shower rooms, and a study mezzanine. The grounds are a delight and very much in keeping with Oak Farm comprising formal gardens, which have been very well maintained over many years with a sun terrace immediately to the south and south west of the house, and well-tended lawns offering a great degree of privacy and seclusion. During the summer of 2020, the current owners installed a brand new outdoor swimming pool with a Coverstar automatic pool cover and surrounded with Millboard weathered oak driftwood decking. In addition, there is a covered Al fresco entertaining and dining area with fireplace, which makes for a delightful seating area. Beyond the gardens to the south, there is a paddock plus a large field and in all, the grounds extend to about 6.7 acres. There is a detached fully equipped office; perfect for those who wish to work from home and has been designed to enjoy the wonderful outlook over the grounds. The property is approached by an electronic 5-bar gate leading from Clayhill Road to an extensive area of parking and turning for many vehicles and also provides access to the timber-built detached 3-car garage with a studio located within the rear section of the building. There is also a floodlit ménage to the right of the driveway. There is a secondary driveway to the north of the property, which leads around to the rear of the barn, where there is a further parking area for horseboxes etc. - this gives access to the stabling, workshops and store rooms.
