THE PROPERTY

Built in 1994 and designed by a reputable local architect, Colesbrook Farm is a handsome family house in a quiet rural position with stone elevations under a tiled roof. The self-contained annexe, built in approximately 2015, has enhanced the accommodation and offers scope for inter-generational living and as an income producing asset. The property has been well designed with a spacious hall, nicely proportioned rooms with a large kitchen/dining area with french windows onto the terrace. Attributes worthy of particular mention include laminated oak flooring in the hall, an open fireplace in the sitting room, and large well proportioned rooms. The annexe has a bedroom on the ground floor and delightful kitchen/sitting room on the first floor which makes the most of the lovely outlook. The property is approached off the no-through lane through a timber five bar gate onto a gravelled car parking and turning area. The front garden is to lawn with a weeping birch and flanked on either side by close boarded fencing and hedging. The majority of the garden is at the rear and is to lawn with a well stocked flower and shrub border with roses, sedum and ornamental grasses. There is an attractive stone terrace accessed from the kitchen/dining room leading onto the lawn with hornbeam hedging on either side. There is a separate vegetable garden and a small fenced paddock beyond.
