Farnham Common, Buckinghamshire, SL2 3ND
Charming period farmhouse with stunning gardens with the benefit of a detached studio/office + garage in the heart of Farnham Common.
Mead Farm is a charming Grade II listed farmhouse believed to date back to 1687, full of character with original features including sash windows, oak flooring, fireplaces and exposed beams. This delightful 5 bedroom property, which offers flexible accommodation, enjoys a generous plot with the added benefit of a spacious detached two storey studio/office.
A covered entrance leads into the reception/dining hall with exposed beams and a wonderful brick inglenook fireplace. Striking reclaimed doors open into a dual aspect dining/family room with a corner fireplace. The sitting room is charming, with a large bay window and French doors opening out on to the garden while an oak beamed fireplace with a wood burner is a focal point to the room. The kitchen/breakfast room is well appointed with granite work surfaces and a good range of units and fitted cupboards. An island, incorporating a breakfast bar, gives additional storage and steps lead down to a walk in larder/cellar. Integrated appliances include an induction hob, single oven, double Butler sink, built-in fridge/freezer and a Smeg dishwasher. There is gated door access to the rear garden and also a side door through a boot room/porch with a cloakroom, leading to the garage and driveway. Adjacent to the kitchen is a further pretty reception room currently used as a study, and a utility room, with plenty of storage, space for appliances and an external door to the side. To the rear of the house is a bedroom, with an en suite bathroom, which could easily be used as an annexe, perfect for an au pair or elderly relative. A lovely beamed room, steeped in history, this was originally the old cart barn.
Stairs lead up to a half landing with one bedroom to the rear with built-in storage. Stairs lead to three further bedrooms, all dual aspect, one with an en suite shower room and one with a corner cupboard and brick fireplace. A family bathroom completes the accommodation on this floor.
A particular feature of the property is the delightful garden which has been thoughtfully landscaped to provide an expansive area of lawn interspersed with specimen trees and mature, well stocked beds of plants and shrubs. Mature trees and hedging provide a good deal of seclusion and privacy. The garden wraps around the side and rear of the house giving several seating areas ideal for outside entertaining. An old working well sits just outside the kitchen and a garden path leads to a rose arch and through to a pond with a Monet style bridge crossing over to a quiet seating area. The garden has plenty of outside storage with two sheds, a log store and a summer house. The property is approached through wooden gates over a Cotswold stone driveway with parking for several cars and a garage. At the front of the property is a converted detached stable block, providing a two storey office with a gallery, cloakroom and kitchen space on the ground floor and an office/workstation on the first floor, but is a very flexible space so could have a multitude of uses.
