The main house was constructed approximately 10 years ago in a traditional farmhouse style of brick with stone quoins and part wood clad elevations under a clay tiled roof. The natural heart of the home is the inviting and bright south/east facing kitchen/breakfast room which enjoys splendid open views over the surrounding paddocks and woodland and has French doors opening on to the patio to the south. Smart polished limestone flooring, a fully fitted kitchen with granite worktops and the all-essential Aga as well as electric ovens makes this a wonderful and practical space. The limestone flooring continues throughout the ground floor and the spacious drawing room enjoys equally pretty views over the land and has two sets of French doors to the garden. There is a useful study and a utility room as well as the luxury of an indoor swimming pool and a gym. On the first floor the main bedroom suite is dual aspect and has a dressing room and a bathroom en suite. There is a further double bedroom with en suite shower room and two further bedrooms sharing a shower room. All the bedrooms enjoy far reaching views over surrounding countryside. There is readily available, occupiable space in the roof if more bedrooms are required. The Cottage Lower Gentilshurst Farm has the benefit of a useful two bedroom annexe, built in the same style as the main house. There is an open plan sitting room with kitchenette, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Equestrian Facilities Lower Gentilshurst Farm enjoys approximately 20.5 acres of generally flat pasture land with stock fencing (mostly post and rail) and water and a small parcel of woodland to one end. There is a well maintained 20m x 40m manege with a (sand/artificial rubber) surface. The yard has a large area of concrete hard standing with plenty of space for parking and turning of horse boxes and machinery. The stable consists of five loose boxes, tack room, feed store, further store rooms, workshop and a groom's quarter with kitchen/shower facilities. There are two large barns, currently used for hay and farm machinery, which could be further improved or reconfigured, subject to the usual SDNP planning consent. Gardens and Grounds The property is located off a quiet country lane and is reached via a private in/out drive which further gives access to the stable block, barns and cottage. The garden is mainly laid to lawn interspersed with mature specimen trees and shrubs. The large south facing paved terraces provides the perfect spot for outdoor entertaining throughout the day. The boundaries on all sides consist of mature hedgerows and trees, ensuring a high level of privacy and a beautiful outlook from the property. The Location Lower Gentilshurst Farm is peacefully situated between the villages of Fernhurst and Lickfold. Fernhurst is a popular and thriving village with a primary school, doctor's surgery, post office and shopping for everyday needs including an excellent greengrocer. The Red Lion public house overlooks the village green and recreation grounds which hosts a variety of clubs and activities including tennis, football and cricket. To the south of Fernhurst is The Kings Arms inn with an excellent curry restaurant attached and in nearby Henley is the well-renowned Duke of Cumberland public house.
