THE PROPERTY

The exact age of Yeo Farm is unknown but the inglenook fireplace and cross beamed ceiling in the older part of the house confirms its origins to date back to the 16th century. The house has evolved over the years and now provides a particularly comfortable spacious family home. In more recent times the property has been the subject of a complete restoration programme, where the present owners have carried out the works to a particularly high standard, including a superbly fitted kitchen with a range of hand painted cabinets, topped with granite work surfaces, an island also with granite work surfaces and a four-oven electric AGA. The house provides excellent entertaining space with a particularly generous, well-proportioned drawing room, with handsome cut stone fireplace, a sitting room, a further study/snug and a superb Prime Oak orangery with underfloor heating and three sets of bi-fold doors and has glorious views over the surrounding gardens and grounds. The bedrooms are all of good size, the principal bedroom having a good range of fitted cupboards, a particularly attractive bathroom with good quality furniture and fittings. There are three further en suite bedrooms. In addition to the main house, three well-appointed and furnished holiday cottages have been created, which generate a healthy income but could be occupied to suit a new owners' requirements. Delilha's Retreat Delilah''s retreat was completely refurbished in 2021, and now comprises a large one bedroom contemporary country cottage. An oak porch with half-glazed stable door leads to the entrance hall. Doors open from the hall to the spacious bedroom, which has a dressing area and walk in wardrobe. A shower room with triple shower, wc and basin leads off the hall. Stairs lead up to a lovely open plan lounge/dining room with a vaulted ceiling and a stunning gable end window looking over the fields beyond. The new kitchen has wall and floor mounted units, integrated dishwasher, plus a freestanding fridge freezer. Bramble Cottage An oak porch with half-glazed stable door leads to the entrance hall with large cloaks cupboard incorporating a gun safe. Doors open off the hall to a twin bedroom and a double bedroom, both with built-in wardrobes and en suite shower rooms comprising shower, wash basin and wc. A staircase leads up to the first floor, which has a vaulted ceiling and spectacular gable end window with window seat, giving views over one of the ponds. The lounge/dining room is open plan leading to a well-fitted kitchen area with wall and floor mounted cupboards. LPG hob, electric oven, dishwasher and integrated refrigerator and freezer. The Old Stables The single storey cottage is set in its own courtyard with the main access through a half-glazed stable door. The hall has a large cloaks cupboard incorporating a gun safe and doors leading through to the kitchen, bedroom and shower room. The kitchen has been newly fitted with a range of wall and floor mounted furniture, dishwasher, integrated Neff dishwasher and induction hob, refrigerator and freezer. There is a dining area with French doors into the courtyard and a lovely sitting area with French doors and further windows. A walk-in closet is situated off the double bedroom together with an en suite shower room with shower, wash basin and wc. A communal utility room is found to the side of the holiday cottages fully equipped with laundry facilities and a sink unit. The boiler room forms the other side of this extension, which contains the centralised heating and water systems for the three cottages together with the linen store.
