AN ATTRACTIVE FARM ENJOYING A PRIVATE AND RURAL POSITION ON THE EDGE OF THE DUKE OF BEDFORD'S WOBURN ESTATE Benefitting from a highly desirable location in the village of Eversholt, the sale of Rads End Farm offers potential purchasers the first time in 45 years to acquire a pretty residential farm surrounded by attractive rolling countryside. The farm is approached over a private gravel drive which divides the five bedroomed farmhouse from the traditional courtyard of outbuildings. The farmhouse enjoys a timeless charm with many period features remaining and offers comfortable and cosy family accommodation over two floors with attractive garden surrounding. For those requiring additional accommodation there is potential to convert the loft rooms. Within the farmstead lies three further residential properties offering either annex living accommodation or useful income depending on one's requirements. The farm is not short of covered accommodation from garaging to stabling and workshop/store rooms along with a very versatile modern steel portal framed farm building. The majority of the farm land lies to the north of the farmstead and includes a mature block of woodland. The remaining land lies to the south across the road. The farm offers the perfect smallholding ideally suited for the rearing of livestock, yet easily adaptable for equestrian purposes. It offers many lifestyle opportunities which can only be fully appreciated by making a commitment to view. THE FARMHOUSE The panelled front door opens into the limestone tiled reception hall with principal reception rooms radiating off and wooden staircase gently rising to the first floor. The sitting room has a wonderful cosy feel with brick inglenook fireplace with recessed drinks cupboard to one side. A glazed door opens into the conservatory overlooking the drive and across to the courtyard stables. Across the hall is the oak floored double aspect study with feature fireplace with overmantel and along one wall are fitted cupboards either side of a desk. At the far end of the reception hall is the cloakroom and coats cupboard and glazed double doors open into the kitchen/dining room which lies in the heart of the house. The brick fireplace houses a De Dietrich wood fired range cooker. Lying slightly recessed is the kitchen with range of fitted base and eye level limed oak units with work surfaces and double bowl stainless steel sink. Appliances include Neff double oven and microwave, four ring Bosch halogen hob, along with integral Indesit dishwasher and Zanussi fridge. The kitchen with potential to extend overlooks a pretty west facing courtyard garden and the dining room enjoys direct access into the side garden. Steps lead up to the boot room with three full height glazed storage cupboards along with recessed dog bed. An arch reveals the utility room with pantry cupboard and second cloakroom with shower. Accessed externally is the boiler room housing the Worcester condensed oil fired boiler. FIRST FLOOR A landing runs through the middle of the farmhouse with all rooms radiating off. Running along the front elevation are three double bedrooms - all with exposed timbers with one bedroom benefitting from a range of fitted wardrobes and ensuite bathroom. There is a separate cloakroom off the landing along with cupboard revealing wooden ladder accessing the large loft housing the water tanks and part boarded. The family bathroom is well equipped with separate shower and linen cupboard housing the hot water cylinder. Adjoining is a single bedroom with fitted wardrobe and at the far end of the landing is the master bedroom suite. The suite enjoys a triple aspect with direct access to Juliet balcony with spiral steps leading down to courtyard below. The bedroom benefits from fitted wardrobes along with large bath, separate shower cubicle, twin sinks and w.c. GARDEN AND GROUNDS A pair of remote controlled electric gates open to reveal the pea gravel drive which sweeps round to the front of the farmhouse and on into the courtyard and top yard. The front garden is enclosed behind mature beech and holly hedging with manicured lawn partly edged by herbaceous borders. The lawn sweeps round to the east and north and an arch way in the holly hedge reveals the productive kitchen garden with individual beds and fruit cages. In the top corner is a bog garden on the edge of the woodland that dries up in the summer. Lying to the west of the farmhouse and shielded from the courtyard by a brick garage is a gravelled west facing seating and entertaining area. ANNEXE Lying across the courtyard is the cottage with sitting room overlooking a pretty south facing garden with brick fireplace housing wood burner. The galley kitchen is compact with fitted units and appliances including oven, four ring electric hob and plumbing for a washing machine. The double bedroom has built-in fitted wardrobes and served by a part-tiled bathroom with wall mounted shower. STUDIO APARTMENTS The East Loft benefits from a galley kitchen and part-tiled bathroom on the ground floor with stairs rising to living/ bedroom on the first floor with fitted recessed wardrobe. West Loft is identical on the ground floor, however, on the first floor benefits from a sitting room and separate double bedroom. COURTYARD OUTBUILDINGS Constructed of brick under a tiled roof the outbuildings currently provide for a large garage, four stables along with further tandem garage with office and workshop to the rear. A brick and timber greenhouse overlooks the courtyard. Adjoining the West Loft is a very useful store room. MODERN FARM BUILDING Located in the top yard and accessed off either the main drive or side drive is the four bay steel portal frame farm building with breeze block dwarf walls and Yorkshire boarding to eaves. The building benefits from fitted gates at either end and lying on its eastern side is a hen run. There is plenty of storage to the west of the barn and in front are two former grain silos. GRASS FIELDS AND WOODLAND The main block of pasture land lies to the north of the farmstead and divided into five paddocks by internal stock-proof fencing. A block of mature woodland divides the grazing area in two and offers a real wildlife haven and plenty of timber for the open fires in the farmhouse. The remaining land lies to the south and benefits from a field shelter and hay barn.
