Bengrove Farm dates back to C18 to early C19 and has been with the current vendors for 40 years. Bengrove offers a wonderful, peaceful location with rural views yet easy access to road and rail networks. The house is constructed of Cotswold stone and rendered brick beneath a tile and slate roof. Internally there is an abundance of character features including stone mullion windows, flagged stone floors, compartmented ceilings and square panelled timber-framed partition walls. The drawing room is double aspect and includes a parquet floor as well as a Tudor-arched opened fireplace with wooden bressumer. The dining room and hall boast period flagged stoned floors, exposed timbers and an inglenook fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room with its vaulted ceiling was a later addition. From the original staircase the first floor includes 5 bedrooms with 2 dressing rooms and 4 bathrooms. Bengrove Farm is accessed via a private drive, passing the pond and arriving at the farmyard and main house. The garden is situated to the South of the main house enjoying wonderful views of the undulating countryside. The Cotswold stone barn currently incorporates a staff room and office and lends itself to ancillary accommodation subject to the necessary planning consents. There are a variety of steeled framed outbuildings totalling 14,095 sq ft and yards. Beyond the outbuildings the land is ring-fenced and all laid to grass.
